.

In 1898 the US declared war against Spain to expel that country from the Americas and begin its exploitation of Cuba. Learn how American business interests dominated US-Cuba relations until the Cuban Revolution of 1956-59 when subsequent land reform injured American business and political pride, resulting in political and economic sanctions that continue to this day.

Presented by Walt Zlotow, President of the West Suburban Peace Coalition.
