Arnold August has presented his book in different venues in Canada and Cuba. Cuba-U.S. Relations: Obama and Beyond (2017) was already launched in Montreal, Toronto, and Havana. The next book launch and discussion will take place on November 1, 2017, at 6:30pm, at The People’s Coop Bookstore (1391 Commercial Drive, Vancouver).
Description: On September 29, the US decided to withdraw 27 people from its Embassy in Havana leaving only a skeleton staff. (It was re-opened in the summer of 2015 a result of the accord reached by Presidents Raúl Castro and Barack Obama on December 17, 2014.) On October 3 at 9 AM the U.S. State Department phoned the Cuban Ambassador to Washington informing him that 15 Cuba diplomats must leave the US within seven days. On the same day, at 3 PM, the Cuban Minister of Foreign Affairs, Bruno Rodríguez held a Press Conference in Havana. He once again strongly rejected the false accusation of “sonic” attacks against US diplomats.
What is happening? What are the facts?
This will be a theme of his presentation contextualized in the book’s analysis of Trump’s Cuba policy. Listen to and discuss with Montreal author and Cuba expert Arnold August as he launches his third book on Cuba in Vancouver.
