It is with a lot of excitement that we, your chairs, welcome you to this debate. The Cuban revolution and the subsequent Bay of Pigs invasion, Cuban missile crisis, and US-Cuban embargo have been prominent factors to the formation of the world and the international scenario as we see it today. Its effects are truly unmeasurable. But for this committee, we invite you to go back to a time where all of this was unknown future when a new government set by idealistic university graduates had just been formed in the small island of Cuba and whose prepotency or bravery (depends on your point of view) in the face of a much larger neighbor was shocking the world. 


For this committee, it is very important to set aside all your own prejudices towards either side of the conflict. Little events have been used more by propaganda than those in the turbulent years of the early 1960s,  so the vast majority of information is biased. The characters taking part in the conflict are for some martyrs, freedom fighters, heroes, and brutal terrorists for others. For those reasons, ideas of good and bad, heroes and tyrants, are often condensed into the same person or event. We plead you to study, understand the motivations behind every character (especially your own), understand the motivations behind the revolution and those acts, take part in the committee and then form your own opinion.
