Ms. De Llano is professor emeritus of economics at the University of Havana as well as a former economic advisor to the Cuban National Assembly. Summary The recently completed the 6th Congress of the Cuban Communist Party approved a set of economic reform measures that will transform the Cuban economy in the coming years, due in large part to the world economic crisis of the past three years. The Congress also instituted a process of generational transition in the leadership of the Party. Professors Morales and De Llano, two respected academic figures and political activists, will be coming to analyze the importance of these developments within the context of Cuba and its 50-year history after the Cuban Revolution. We'll have muffins and coffee for you. --------4 of 9-------- From: Women Against Military Madness <wamm [at] mtn.org> Subject: Palestine film 6.18 10am A Documentary: "Our Story" Presented by Dr. Mustafa Barghouthi Saturday, June 18, 9:30 a.m. (Refreshments); 10:00 a.m. (Presentation and Discussion) Southdale Hennepin County library, 7001 York Avenue South, Edina.
