This week on the Final Straw, we’re sharing another audio gift from comrades. Isbel Diaz Torres is a participant in the Taller Libertario Alfredo López / ABRA in Havana, Cuba, recorded in late 2018.

Anarchists opened social center ABRA on Cuba on May 5. A review.
We are excited to reprint the below statement from our Cuban anarchist comrades announcing the opening of the ABRA social center and library in Habana today May 5, 2018. Comrades with the Taller Libertario Alfredo López and allied groups have been working for over 10 years to rebuild an anarchist presence in Cuba and the establishment of a permanent space for social and political activities represents a tremendous step forward. The International Relations Committee of Black Rose/Rosa Negra (BRRN) has sent a message of revolutionary greetings and solidarity – we wish the comrades of ABRA great success!
