Sash Gillies-Lekakis is a bright young PhD candidate and 3CR broadcaster who loves everything Latin America. He's been to Cuba a few times already in his young life and decided to learn Spanish at university, even though he comes from a family of Crimean Russians and Greeks. It's a family joke. Sasha has always loved modern history and produces Latin American Update, a long-running Sunday morning show on 3CR. Sasha's PhD is exploring Cuba's cooperation with the Pacific Islands, including training doctors for poor Pacific countries. He and his family have been communists for ever. Sasha will be co-hosting the event at the West Papua office in Docklands, Sunday 17 September, also featuring last week's popular guest, Robert Wolfgramm. There will be music, talks from Cuba and Fiji, and an auction! 838 Collins St, Docklands. Thanks for joining us this week, Sasha!
