SKU: DF-355 Category: Tags: ,


Committees for the Defense of the Revolution, or CDR, are a network of neighborhood committees across Cuba. The organizations, described as the “eyes and ears of the Revolution,” exist to promote social welfare and report on counter-revolutionary activity. As of 2010, 8.4 million Cubans of the national population of 11.2 million were registered as CDR members. The slogan of the CDR is, “¡En cada barrio, Revolución!” (“In every neighborhood, Revolution!”). Fidel Castro proclaimed it “a collective system of revolutionary vigilance,” established “so that everybody knows who lives on every block, what they do on every block, what relations they have had with the tyranny, in what activities are they involved, and with whom they meet.”
