> According to Professor Noam Chomsky in his 2000
> Book, "Rogue States", "Cuba and the United States
> have quite a curious-in fact, unique- status in
> international relations. There is no similar case of
> such a sustained assault by one power against
> another-in this case the greatest superpower against
> a poor, Third World country-for 40 years of terror
> and economic warfare."

> Professor Chomsky will be presenting a showing of
> the documentary film: "Mission Against Terror" and

> of work on peace and justice issues. He is

> Against Terror" with Cuban TV director Roberto Ruiz
> Rebo.

> The film follows the case of the five Cubans
> currently serving long sentences in U.S. jails for
> trying to prevent terrorist attacks on Cuba. It also
> depicts the long history of violence against
> innocent Cubans by right-wing groups based in Miami
