The CME has been educating revolutionists since 1975 by hosting events that are free and open to the public. Through the generosity of volunteers, we provide lectures, films, book talks, strategy meetigs and discussion groups from global, national, and local socialists for anyone who believes that capitalism isn't working, and wants to find a better way.

Legacies of the Russian Revolution

Cuba, a Success Story
“Cuba, a Success Story” is the title of the 1.5-hour video. The video is a culmination of my six-week stay in Cuba, and driving cross-country from Havana to Santiago. Cuba is a success story because it thrives even after the longest, sustained boycott of a country in world history.
In a video walk-through, the rich cultural histories of Havana, Santiago, Trinidad other cities are exhibited and the importance of the revolution is explained. A classical concert inside the Basilica, the Havana International Jazz Festival, and a visit to the arts displayed in the F.A.C. in a small way portray he importance of the arts in Cuba.

Question 1 and the Struggle for a Just Health Care System
Sandy Eaton, Mass.Nurses Association, Wadi'h Halabi, CPUSA
The US spends more on health care than any other country. Yet by almost all measures, the outcome is worse than many states that spend a fraction as much. Prevention and public health are neglected. Millions are going without necessary health care. Bankruptcy often follows a single health emergency. Join us for a discussion of Question 1 and the struggle for a just health care system.
