Hablar de Cuba es hablar de Fidel

Por Gerardo Hernández Nordelo, uno de los cinco héroes cubanos.

Quiero contarles algo que nunca he contado. El 23 de junio del 2001, ya dentro de la prisión de Estados Unidos, pudimos tener una pequeña radio desde la cuál escuchamos el discurso de Fidel en La Habana: “Nuestros héroes tendrán que ser liberados. La enorme injusticia cometida contra ellos será conocida por el mundo entero. Millones de libros transmitirán la verdad y el mensaje de Cuba. ¡Nuestros compañeros, más temprano que tarde, volverán!”. Mientras él hablaba de “los cinco” por supuesto que estaba emocionado, ¡cómo no iba a estarlo! Pero admito que me impactó enormemente cuando me nombró y al escuchar mi nombre en su inconfundible voz tomé dimensión de la enorme responsabilidad que tenía con mi pueblo, con la historia y para con él. Fué un momento muy importante porque además nos acababan de encontrar culpables y él aseguró, delante de todo su pueblo, que volveríamos. Y así fué. ¡Volvimos como lo prometió Fidel! Esas palabras nos acompañaron durante todos esos años como un baluarte de optimismo y de confianza. A lo largo de nuestra historia no hubo algo que él prometiera y no pusiera todos sus esfuerzos y toda su inteligencia en función de lograrlo. Sigue leyendo

How to explore Ernest Hemingway´s Cuba

La Bodeguita, where Hemingway stopped for mojitos

From The Independent, By Sasha Wood, November 25, 2018

Follow in the footsteps of one of America’s greatest writers as Havana celebrates its 500th anniversary

“Ambos Mundos was where Hemingway’s love affair with Cuba all started,” said Esperanza, the custodian of the legendary author’s former hotel room in Havana. I had unwittingly picked up Cuba’s Hemingway trail right at its source – a fraying Art Deco hotel in the heart of the Unesco-listed old quarter.

From behind Hemingway’s typewriter in room 511, where he wrote three novels standing up because of an old knee injury from the war, I could see the terracotta rooftops sliding off towards the old harbour, with the currents of the “great blue river”, as he called the Gulf Stream, threading through the ocean beyond.

Latin American countries vow to resist US imperialism

Resultado de imagen de Reunión del Consejo Político de la Alianza Bolivariana para los Pueblos de América, octubre2018
Latin American countries vowed to defend themselves from US intervention today as they issued a rallying call for the defence of sovereignty and self-determination of all people.

The Political Council of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of America (Alba) adopted a declaration rejecting all attempts by the United States to interfere with the nations of Latin America.

Leaders and representatives of countries including Venezuela, Bolivia, Nicaragua and Cuba stressed the importance of political integration in the face of increased US hostility aimed at removing progressive governments across the region.

Venezuelan foreign minister Jorge Arreaza said: “We want to ratify that, those moments when imperialism seems to dominate processes are the moments in which the Bolivarian Alliance, the alliance of the peoples, has to unite and not only to resist; we are here to advance towards the union and integration of our peoples.”

Alba offered its unconditional support for Nicaragua, Venezuela, Bolivia and Cuba which have all seen attempts to destabilise their economies through a series of measures, including sanctions.

Bruno Rodríguez: “We are certain that the amendments will be rejected”

In statements offered to the press today, the Cuban Foreign Minister spoke about what will happen tomorrow, October 31, regarding the debate on the annual resolution presented in the UN by Cuba against the U.S. blockade. The vote itself will take place this Thursday, November 1

Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez stated today in a press conference that the United States government, in its desire to create greater tensions and increase hostility, is posing obstacles to the forthcoming vote against the blockade in the UN.

He explained that the U.S. State Department originally presented a document consisting of eight paragraphs of amendments to the draft resolution “Necessity of ending the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States against Cuba.” However, the text was hastily divided into eight separate amendments that will be submitted to the United Nations General Assembly for analysis tomorrow.

Cuban Foreign Minister denounces U.S. maneuver to undermine international support for an end to the blockade.

The United States permanent mission at the UN began circulating eight amendments to the Cuban resolution calling for an end to the blockade, reported Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez Parilla during a press conference at the ministry in Havana.

He reported that the amendments basically address aspects related to the UN’s 2030 Sustainable Development Goals, and the human rights issue, a subject that the U.S. government attempts to use to discredit Cuba – unsuccessfully.

What is most interesting, Rodríguez said, is not the content of the proposed amendments, but rather the fact that the document was circulated surreptitiously by the U.S. State Department, signed by deputy assistant secretary Gonzalo Gallegos, in an effort to dissuade UN member countries from voting in favor of the Cuban resolution calling for an end to the blockade, which will be considered in the General Assembly this coming October 31.

Diplomáticos cubanos en ONU a la altura de Fidel Castro en su alegato “La historia me absolverá”

Al conmemorarse 65 años del alegato de Fidel Castro en el juicio del Moncada donde concluye con la frase “Condenadme, no importa la historia me absolverá”, los representante de la diplomacia cubana en ONU con su innegable fidelidad a Cuba salieron al paso una vez más ante las patrañas del imperial gobierno norteamericano tras su lacayo y servil títere Luis Almagro y su denigrante OEA.

Querer y utilizar los salones de Naciones Unidas y hasta la propia organización para crear campañas difamatorias contra un país miembro es violar los principios y propósitos de la Carta de Naciones Unidas.

Cuba responde nuevamente y esta vez de frente y mirándole a los ojos al sumiso de Almagro. Le dice la verdad en su cara, le canta las 40, en buen cubano.

Almagro la dignidad no se compra se alcanza, el valor no se compra se nace con él y se forja en el calor de cada batalla, los principios no se venden se defienden y la patria se cuida y protege.

Una vez más Cuba dice: No a la Injerencia, no a las mentira y a las patraña, basta de circos mediáticos, Cuba es y seguirá siendo por siempre Nuestra.

President Miguel Díaz-Canel Bermúdez addresses the UN General Assembly.

Madam President:

Mister Secretary-General:

It is impossible to be here, speak from this rostrum on behalf of Cuba, and not recall historic moments of the General Assembly which are also part of our dearest memories: Fidel Castro, Che Guevara, Raúl Castro and the “Chancellor of Dignity”, Raúl Roa, just to mention the most significant, have brought here not only the voice of our people but also the voice of other Latin American and Caribbean, African, Asian, non-aligned peoples, with whom we have shared more than half a century of struggles for a fair international order, which is still far off being attained.

From Sonic Attack to Microwave: What’s Next, Kryptonite?

Just when it seemed like it had reached its limit, the story of a group of U.S. diplomats who allegedly fell ill in Cuba became even less credible this week.

The United States now considers microwave waves to be the “main suspects” of symptoms reported by members of its Embassy staff in Havana.

In less than two years, there has been a shift from “acoustic attacks” to viruses and from concussions to now microwave waves.

On Saturday, September 1,The New York Times published an article entitled, ‘Microwave weapons are the main suspects of the disease among U.S. Embassy officials.’

Douglas Smith, director of the Center for Brain Injury and Repair at the University of Pennsylvania, told the newspaper that those allegedly affected suffered brain injuries and microwaves are suspected by the researchers. Sigue leyendo
