Republic of Cuba, Jorge Gestoso, Telesur journalist, at the United Nations headquarters, September 19, 2017, “Year 59 of the Revolution.” (Shorthand versions – Council of State)
Let us face recovery with the example of the Commander-in-Chief of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro Ruz, who with his permanent faith in victory and strong will has taught us that there are no impossible tasks.
Hurricane Irma, with its destructive force, lashed out at our Island for more than 72 hours, from the morning of September 8 to the afternoon of this Sunday. With winds that surpassed at times 250 kilometers per hour, it crossed the north of the country from Baracoa, also punished by another phenomenon of this type almost a year ago, to the vicinity of Cárdenas. However, by the immensity of its size practically no territory was freed of its effects. Sigue leyendo
Ante el eminente pasó de Irma por el territorio nacional y luego que alcanzara categoría 5 y fuera catalogado como el fenómeno meteorológico de mayor intensidad formado en el Océano Atlántico, la pregunta: ¿dónde está Rubiera? no se hizo esperar dentro de las redes sociales.
José Rubiera, el rostro de los huracanes o la tranquilidad de los hogares cubanos ante situaciones meteorológicas de tal embergadura, se extraña y mucho. Quizás sea la costumbre y la confianza que los cubanos hemos depositado en este gran profesional, pero lo cierto es que no siempre la interrogante nos llega con buenas intesiones pues son vienen compartidas desde sitios mal intesionados, que buscan con sus comentarios envolvernos en la nebulosa de lo que puede ser y no es.

REJECTION TO THE ERRATIC STATEMENT ISSUED BY THE GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES AGAINST THE HOMELAND OF BOLÍVAR
The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela rejects the unbelievable statement published today by the White House on 07/17/2017.
It is a document of a sort that has never been seen before, which, due to its poor level and awful quality, makes it difficult to intellectually understand the intentions of the assailant country. Without a doubt, the government of the United States is used to humiliating other nations in its international relations and believes that it will receive as a response the subordination to which they are accustomed. The trench that the government of the United States is digging in its relations with Venezuela makes it difficult to rationally predict its actions for the entire international community.
The government of the United States, unashamedly, shows its absolute bias towards the violent and extremist sectors of Venezuelan politics, which favor the use of terrorism to overthrow a popular and democratic government.
The moral ruin of the Venezuelan opposition has dragged President Trump to commit an open aggression against a Latin American country. We know not who could have written, let alone authorized, a statement with such a conceptual and moral poverty.
The thin democratic veil of the Venezuelan opposition has fallen, and it reveals the brutal interventionist force of the U.S. government, which has been behind the violence suffered by the Venezuelan people in the last four months.
It is not the first time that we denounce and confront threats as ludicrous as those contained in this unbelievable document.
We call on the peoples of Latin America and the Caribbean, as well as on the free peoples of the world, to understand the magnitude of the brutal threat contained in this imperial statement and to defend the sovereignty, self-determination, and independence, fundamental principles of international law.
The original constituent power is contemplated in our Constitution and it only concerns the Venezuelan people. The National Constituent Assembly will be elected by the direct, universal, and secret ballot of all Venezuelans, under the authority of the National Electoral Council, as contemplated in our legal framework. It is an act of political sovereignty of the Republic, nothing and no one can stop it. The Constituent Assembly will go on!
Today, Venezuelan people are free and will respond united against the insolent threat posed by a xenophobic and racist empire. The anti-imperialist thought of the Liberator is more valid than ever.
