Cuba Solidarity Mural

International references are frequent in republican murals. For example, in Shiels Street, West Belfast in August 1998, a mural in solidarity with Cuba was painted. The image of Che Guevara is central in the mural, which was unveiled during the West Belfast Festival by the head of the Cuban delegation to the European Union, Alfredo Leon.

Location and Date: Shiels Street, Belfast, 1998
