Policy & Gov't.


  • Fidel Castro: The Two Venezuelas

    Fidel Castro: The Two Venezuelas

    Yesterday I spoke about the time when Venezuela was an ally of the US empire and the country where Posada Carriles and Orlando Bosch carried out their plans for the brutal in-flight bombing of a Cuban plane that caused the death and disappearance of all people aboard, including the youth fencing tea…

    Reflections by Fidel Castro: A will of iron (Part 2and final)

    When, in 1976, the most serious terrorist acts were committed against Cuba, in particular the in-flight sabotage of a Cuban airliner which had departed from Barbados with 73 persons aboard – among them pilots, flight attendants and auxiliary personnel offering their services to the airline, the co…

    Reflections by Comrade Fidel: The Will of Steel (Part One)

    Two days ago on Friday October 14th, Granma and Juventud Rebelde, the Communist Party and Youth League newspapers, published a brave and energetic message from René González, Hero of the Republic,  to the people of Cuba, after the odious and unfair 13-year punishment  had finished, separately, like the other four heroes who are serving longer sentences in prisons that are hundreds of miles away from each other. 
    Not for one instant did the unshakeable steadfastness of each one of them falter, even when they were repeatedly thrown into punishment cells, veritable sepulchres, without any space to move, just as “Yankee justice” decreed, with no crime or any kind of evidence.   If there was anything in which such “justice” didn’t make a mistake, it was in the selection of the type of men it was punishing.

  • Obama’S Supervised Shame

    Obama’S Supervised Shame

    Not because it was brutal or clumsy or anticipated was there any less indignation about the Yankee judge from the South Florida District denying René González, the Cuban anti-terrorist hero, the right to return to the heart of his family in Cuba after having served the unfair sentence imposed on him.

    Chavez, Evo and Obama (Part two-final)

    If our Nobel laureate is deluding himself, something that is still to be proven, perhaps that explains the incredible contradictions in his thinking and the confusion sown among his listeners.

    Chavez, Evo and Obama (Part One)

    I take a break from the tasks that are occupying all of my time these days to dedicate a few words to the unique opportunity presented by the political science of the sixtieth session of the United Nations General Assembly.

    Reflections by Comrade Fidel: A Brilliant and Courageous Statement

    Attending to other matters that are now top priority, I momentarily strayed from the frequency with which I had been writing reflections in the year 2010; however, Hugo Chávez Frías’ proclamation last Thursday the 30th, obliges me to write these lines. The president of Venezuela is one of the…

    Reflections by Comrade Fidel: The Playa Giron Battle (Part II)

    It is difficult to write about historic events when many of their main protagonists have already passed away or are not in conditions to give their testimonies on the past developments.

  • The Unsustainable Position of the Empire

    The Unsustainable Position of the Empire

    Nobody can assure us that in its agony, the empire won’t be dragging human beings down to catastrophe.

    As we know, while our species remains alive, everybody has the sacred duty to be optimistic. Ethically, any other behaviour wouldn’t be admissible. I remember well that one day, almost 20 years ago, I said that there was an endangered species: Man.
