“One cannot expect positive results from an educational or political action program which fails to respect the particular view of the world held by the people. Such a program constitutes cultural invasion, good intentions notwithstanding.” — Paulo Friere, Pedagogy of the Oppressed

Inspired by groups in Honduras, who had adopted the models of Friere’s literacy campaign to peasant organizing, ANAP would use CAC as a vehicle to aid peasant farmers in the creation of a mass movement to transform Cuba’s food system. Being that Cuba had limited time to waste during this shortage of food, they would need to shift to an entirely new food system, an Agroecological revolution.
