Tell us about your experience with this online video, click here.
Although the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991, anti-Russian and anti-communist hysteria still fuels American foreign policy. In Cuba, our socialist neighbor in the Caribbean, the United States mounted an especially virulent cold war of dirty tricks, embargoes, blockades, and invasions to destroy Cuba, its economy, its people, and its spirit.
While President Obama eased this almost 60-year-old policy, the Trump administration is once again attacking Cuba and seeking regime change there. In this workshop, we will examine the Cold War tensions with Russia which spilled over to Cuba and examine also the new Cold War against Russia and Cuba.
