Canning House “Collaborates” With CagePrisoners

This is a guest post by Bolívar’s Ghost

Latin America, where to start? The mojitos and caiprinhas, the dazzling footwork of the futebol players, the sensual and curvy women (or swishy/macho men) and the region’s decade-long abundance of centre-left governments. You will of course have your own preferences from this list of crude stereotypes.

There is no shortage of London-based organisations to cater for the gringo in search of any of the above, from the social justice-minded activities of the Latin American Bureau to the Banana Republic-attired trade and diplomacy receptions of Canning House in Belgravia.

But, what’s this? Are the two sets of gringos converging, like social justice and Venezuelan petrodollars?

Documentary & talk

A documentary by Yvonne Ridley and David Miller
10th of March 2010 at 18:30

A behind the scenes insight to the notorious prison, Guantanamo Bay, located in Cuba.

The documentary screening will be followed by a Q & A session with journalist Yvonne Ridley, director David Miller, Cuban Ambassador to the UK René Juan Mujica Cantelar, and former Guantanamo inmate Moazzem Begg.

Tickets: £6.00 / Members: £4.00 Venue: Canning House – 2 Belgrave Square, London SW1X 8PJ

The flyer makes it clear that this is a Canning House event “in collaboration” with CagePrisoners.

Will we get to see Yvonne perform some Latin moves after the film, while the suits press flesh and exchange business cards?
