Committee for Luis Miranda
The Committee to Celebrate the Life of Luis Miranda Rivas commenced on 26 January 2008 in New York City's Manhattan, at the Martin Luther King Labor Center on 310 W 43rd St, to celebrate the life of Luis Miranda. The brochure said contributions would go to Compañero Luis Miranda, Casa De Las Américas, Cuba & Our Solidarity with The Cuban 5!
Its purpose was to celebrate the "life and political contributions of Brother Luis Miranda, the long-time president of Casa de las Americas, a giant in the defense of all the causes of oppressed and exploited humanity, and in particular the defense of the Cuban Revolution, for over five decades in New York City."
- "Honor the memory, venerate the cause, and emulate the example of this friend and comrade to all people who fight for their liberation. ¡Luis Miranda Presente!"
