Las Metas Instrumento de Trabajo Esclavo en Cuba Comunista...

[Miami?]: [F.O.R.D.C.?], [ca. 1965]. An evocative flyer issued by the Frente Obrero Revolucionario Democrático Cubano (FORDC) depicting an exhausted Cuban bricklayer building Castro’s socialist state. The FORDC was a Cuban exile group based in Miami and funded by the CIA. It was founded in 1960 by a group of exiled 26th of July labor leaders who wanted “to bring together all workers’ groups of a democratic type...working against the Castro dictatorship” (Alexander, A History of Organized Labor in Cuba, p. 252). The group issued a series of pamphlets - the cover art of which is displayed on the flyers here - criticizing the oppression and degraded quality of life faced by workers under Castro’s dictatorship.

Printed in blue on fragile pulp paper (10 ½ x 7 ½”). Browning to stock, sliver chipped off the top left edge. Not found independently catalgued in WorldCat. Item #11371
