Bolender referred to at the UN

Keith Bolender, author of Voices from the Other Side: An Oral History of Terrorism Against Cuba (Pluto Press, 2010), had his book mentioned in the UN Security Council meeting of May 16th, 2011, approximately 2 hours 29 minutes into the session.

The UN Webcast is available to watch on the UN website at the following link.

Voices from the Other SideSince the early 1960s, few other countries have endured more acts of terrorism against civilian targets than Cuba, and the US has had its hand in much of it. This book gives a voice to the victims.

Keith Bolender brings to bear the enormous impact that terrorism has had on Cuba’s civilian population, with over 1,000 documented incidents resulting in more than 3,000 deaths and 2,000 injuries. Bolender allows the victims to articulate the atrocities the Cuban people have suffered – which largely originate from Cuban counter-revolutionaries based in the US, often with the active help of the CIA.

Voices From The Other Side includes first-person interviews with more than 75 Cuban citizens who have been victims of these terrorist acts, or have had family members or close friends die from the attacks. It is a unique resource for activists, journalists and students interested in Cuba’s torrid relationship with the US.
