BOOK LAUNCH: RED ZONE (ZONA ROJA): CUBA AND THE BATTLE AGAINST EBOLA IN WEST AFRICA
“A people aiming to build a society based on solidarity” — that’s what Cuba’s socialist revolution represents, said Enrique Ubieta, author of Red Zone: Cuba and the Battle Against Ebola in West Africa. He was addressing a March 7 program in New York City to celebrate the publication of new editions of Red Zone in English and Spanish via video from Havana.
‘CUBAN REVOLUTION TAUGHT US TO GO WHERE WE’RE NEEDED IN THE WORLD’
The successful effort by Cuban medical volunteers to end the Ebola epidemic in West Africa “was not the work of doctors who were on their own. Behind them was an entire country and a revolution that made this possible,” said Enrique Ubieta.
More than 40 titles by Thomas Sankara, who was a revolutionary leader and President of Burkina Faso from 1983 to 1987, were sold at the recent conference of the African Studies Association held here Nov. 20-24, 2019.
