CUBA: Abogado invidente Juan Carlos González Leiva habla ante la ONU en Ginebra. Es interrumpido varias veces por el régimen castrista para impedir su testimonio




Enlace del video de la intervención en el número 16 Il Cenacolo (minuto 31:45):




Ginebra, Suiza. 16 de septiembre de 2014. Juan Carlos González Leiva, abogado invidente y líder del Consejo de Relatores de Derechos Humanos de Cuba, quien se encuentra de visita fuera de la Isla, tomó el piso durante la Vigésimo Séptima Reunión del Consejo de Derechos Humanos de la ONU en Ginebra para denunciar la violación de derechos humanos en Cuba.
Soy Juan Carlos González Leiva, llevo 20 años como abogado ciego defendiendo los derechos humanos, sufriendo palizas, arrestos arbitrarios y mítines de repudio. Del 4 de marzo del 2002 al 26 de abril 2004, fui recluido en el Centro Policial de Pedernales de Holguín, sin juicio, por celebrar un congreso sobre derechos humanos. Allí, sistemáticamente me echaron sustancias químicas que me quemaban la piel y ocasionaban alucinaciones, fuerte dolores de cabeza, y alergia. Fui confinado sin acceso a la prensa, teléfono, correspondencia, ni asistencia religiosa. Amenazado por reos asesinos que no me dejaban dormir noche y día. En mi celda dejaban cables con corriente eléctrica. Los defensores de derechos humanos en mi país somos víctimas de una constante política de represión.”, afirmó Juan Carlos González Leiva al iniciar su intervención en la ONU.
El representante de la delegación del régimen castrista, Juan Antonio González, interrumpió el testimonio en tres ocasiones, a pesar de que fue apoyado por los representantes de Venezuela y Paquistán, las delegaciones de Estados Unidos y Reino Unido respaldaron el derecho del activista de brindar su testimonio.
“Señor Presidente, le pido disculpas a toda la sala, pero es evidente que esta persona, conmigo sentado aquí, no va a terminar su intervención”, sentenció el agente castrista, pero el presidente de la sesión devolvió la palabra al defensor de los derechos humanos cubano.
Pido a Naciones Unidas protección para mí y para todos los defensores de derechos humanos dentro de Cuba pues pronto regreso a allá para continuar defendiendo los derechos humanos.”, dijo González Leiva al concluir.
John Suárez, secretario de Relaciones Internacionales del Directorio Democrático Cubano acompañó y guió al activista invidente quien además ha sostenido y sostendrá importantes reuniones con la prensa y relatorías del Consejo de Derechos Humanos de la ONU en Ginebra.
“Hemos facilitado la intervención de González Leiva en este foro porque la situación de derechos humanos en la Isla se ha empeorado y las amenazas de muerte contra defensores de derechos humanos en Cuba han aumentado en los últimos meses”, enfatizó John Suarez desde Ginebra.



Thanks Joseito for this information!

Feast of the patroness of Cuba, Our Lady of Charity of El Cobre,


Pope Francis letter to Cubans

Click here for the story:


His Excellency Dionisio Guillermo Garcia Ibanez
Metropolitan Archbishop of Santiago de Cuba
President of the Catholic Bishops'



Vatican, 8 September 2014

Dear Brother:

A few days ago, the venerated image of Our Lady of Charity of El Cobre was placed in the Vatican Gardens. Its presence constitutes a moving reminder of the affection and vitality of the pilgrim Church of those luminous lands of the Carribbean which, for mor than four centuries, has addressed the Mother of God with that beautiful title. From the mountains of El Cobre, and now from the See of Peter, that small and blessed figure of Mary magnifies the souls of those who invoke her with devotion, as She leads us to Jesus, her divine Son.

Today as we fervently celebrate the feast of Mary Most Holy, la Virgen Mambisa¸ I join all Cubans who set their eyes on her Immaculate Heart to pray for favors, to commend to her their loved ones and to imitate her in her humility and devotion to Christ, of whose disciples she was the first and greatest.

Every time I read the Sacred Scriptures in the passages that speak of Our Lady, three words stand out to me. I would like to focus on them in order to invite the pastors and faithful of Cuba to put them into practice.


The first is rejoice. It was the first word the Archangel Gabriel addressed to the Virgin. “Rejoice, full of grace, the Lord is with you” (Lk 1:28). The life of she who has discovered Jesus is filled with such great interior joy that nothing or no one can take it from her. Christ gives to his own the necessary strength to not be sad or overwhelmed by thinking about the problems that cannot be solved. Sustained by this truth, the Christian does not doubt that that which is done with love engenders serene joy, the sister of that hope which breaks the wall of fear and opens the doors to a future of promise. “I am Our Lady of Charity,” was what the three Johns read on the tablet that was floating in the Bay of Nipe. How beautiful it would be if all Cubans, especially the young, could say the same: ‘I am a man or woman of charity:” I live to truly love, and thus not be trapped in the toxic spiral of eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth. What joy is felt by one who authentically loves, through daily acts, and who is not among those who are full of empty words that are carried away by the wind.

The second word is arise. With Jesus in her womb, St. Luke says Mary arose and went with haste to serve her cousin Elizabeth, who in her old age was with child (cf. Lk 1:39-45). She fulfilled the will of God placing herself at the disposition of whoever needed her. She did not think of herself, she overcame all setbacks and gave of herself to others. The victory is for those who arise again and again without being discouraged. If we imitate Mary, we cannot just do nothing and merely complain, or perhaps pass the buck on to others for something that is our responsibility. Its not about doing great things but about doing them with tenderness and mercy. Mary was always with her people looking out for the little ones. She knew loneliness, poverty and exile, and she learned to create fraternity and to make her home in whatever place good would germinate. We implore her to make us poor in spirit, free of all pride, and to grant us a pure heart that sees God in the faces of the disadvantaged and patience that does not shrink from the difficulties of life.

We are to have joy, and share it with those around us. Lift up your heart and do not succumb in the face of adversities, persevere in the way of good; tirelessly helping those oppressed by sorrows and afflictions: these are the important lessons taught to us by Our Lady of Charity of El Cobre, useful both for today and for tomorrow. In her maternal hands I place the pastors, religious communities, and faithful of Cuba, so that She might encourage you in your evangelizing commitments and in your will to make love the foundation of society. Thus you will not be lacking in a joy for life, a soul for service, and perseverance in good works.

To the children of the Church in Cuba I ask, please, pray for me, as I am in need of it.

May Jesus bless you, and the Blessed Virgin care for you forever.

Fraternally,

Francis

New revelations about Cuban spy Ana Montes

Details about Cuban spy Ana Montes from the Department of Defense Inspector General’s 2005 report — only now declassified — shed new light on the case.

 
Ana Montes spent almost 20 years spying for Cuba while working as a U.S. intelligence analyst. Here, her FBI booking photo on the day of her arrest, Sept. 21, 2001. The "Queen of Cuba" is one of America's most harmful spies, but few have heard of her.

Special to the Miami Herald

For 16 years, Ana Belen Montes spied for Cuba from increasingly responsible positions at the Defense Intelligence Agency. If Havana has ever run a higher level or more valuable mole inside the American defense establishment, that has never been revealed.
When she was arrested in late September 2001, Montes was about the equivalent in rank of a colonel. She had access to sensitive compartmented intelligence. Strangely, for one so openly enamored of Fidel Castro, her superiors considered her one of the best Cuba analysts anywhere in government.
Despite the importance of her case, some of the most tantalizing questions about her spying have never been publicly answered. Could the calamity of her treason have been avoided? What was learned about Cuban intelligence tradecraft? How was she discovered? And, of enduring concern, did she work with other American spies thus far undetected or not prosecuted?
Thanks to researcher Jeffrey Richelson and the National Security Archive, new light has finally been shed on the Montes case. Because of their efforts, a 180 page study completed by the Department of Defense Inspector General in 2005 has recently been declassified. It is heavily redacted; many pages, including the CIA’s extensive comments, blacked out. Yet, a quantity of surprising new details are now on the public record.
Montes’s decision to spy for Cuba was “coolly deliberate.” Enticed by a Cuban access agent in Washington, they traveled together to New York in December 1984. Montes met with intelligence officers posted under cover at the Cuban mission to the United Nations.
She “unhesitatingly agreed” to work with them and travel clandestinely to Cuba as soon as possible. The following March, she went there via Spain and Czechoslovakia. The Pentagon report does not state the obvious: while there, she must have received specialized training in intelligence tradecraft.
Then, with Cuban encouragement, she applied for a job at DIA. A standard background investigation was conducted, but we now know that serious concerns about her suitability were raised. Without elaboration, the Pentagon report indicates that they included “falsification of her Master of Arts degree from Johns Hopkins (University) and her trustworthiness.”
DIA did not require applicants to submit to a pre-employment polygraph exam. So, Montes, a trained Cuban espionage agent with a problematic past was cleared and hired. She began her double duties in September 1985.
After her arrest, Montes insisted that she had the “moral right” to provide information to Cuba. In her view, she did not work for Cuba, but with Cuban officials. They felt “mutual respect and understanding” she thought, as “comrades in the struggle.”
The Cubans were skilled in manipulating and controlling her. She told interrogators after her apprehension that she considered herself the equal of her “Cuban comrades, not a menial espionage tool.” They let her believe she “maintained significant control,” although she consistently left “security matters, including meeting site security, countersurveillance, and transmission security” to her handlers.
Montes said they were “thoughtful, sensitive to her needs, very good to me.” They went to “special lengths to assure her they had complete confidence in her.” They allowed her a long, loose leash, easier because they were not paying for her extraordinary services.
Initially in New York, and later at her request in the Washington area, she met with her handlers as often as once every two or three weeks, usually on weekends. Everything about her second covert trip to Cuba is redacted in the Pentagon report.
In 1991, Montes underwent a seemingly routine security reinvestigation. She was asked about foreign travel, and lied. Questioned about inaccuracies in her original application for employment, she confessed that she had misrepresented an incident in her past. Feigning innocence, Montes claimed that she “did not understand the seriousness of being truthful and honest at the time.”
Her questionable case was then reviewed at a higher level. The adjudicator reported that “while Montes seemed to have a tendency ‘to twist the truth’ to her own needs and her honesty was still a cause of concern, adverse security action was unlikely.” Again, she had slipped through. Her high level clearances were recertified.
Soon after, she brazenly submitted a freedom of information request for her own government records. She must have been concerned that something adverse had been discovered. Investigative material was released. She gave the surprised Cubans copies.
She apparently visited Cuba a third time after being selected to participate in the prestigious Director of Central Intelligence “Exceptional Analyst Program” in 1992. This time her travel to the island, purportedly to conduct research, was legal.
In 1996, she was questioned by a DIA special agent after another DIA employee reported concerns about her. Serious doubts were raised about her veracity, but the allegations could not be substantiated.
None of this seems to have contributed to her eventual unmasking. So, how was she discovered? Surprisingly, revealing information seeps through the Pentagon’s report. “We got lucky,” a counterintelligence official observed. An entirely blacked-out section entitled “Serendipity” suggests the same.
By April 1998, a coordinated search for a Cuban spy was underway, according to the report. At first it was thought most likely the quarry was a CIA employee. Investigators were following a crucial clue: the unknown spy had apparently traveled to the Guantanamo naval base as Montes had apparently done on official DIA business.
The breakthrough had seemingly come earlier, however. According to the Pentagon report, Montes was informed shortly after her arrest that investigators “had information from a senior official in the Cuban intelligence service concerning a Cuban penetration agent that implicated Montes.” It appears that this information propelled the investigation that resulted in her arrest.
Who was this mysterious, previously unacknowledged source? From the language of the Pentagon report, it was probably not a defector, but more likely a renegade or compromised Cuban intelligence officer. If so, Montes was done in by one of her own so-called “comrades.”
Did she work with other American spies? The report is ambiguous; it states that after the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 pressure intensified to arrest Montes. The FBI preferred to wait, however, in order “to monitor Montes’s activities with the prospect that she may have eventually led the FBI to others in the Cuban spy network.”
Did government censors inadvertently confirm the existence of a larger spy ring? If in fact there was evidence of one, it may be a long time before more is known.
It is now clear, however, that Montes’s apprehension was not just the result of excellent intelligence work. She told investigators after her arrest that a week earlier she had learned that she was under surveillance. She could have decided then to flee to Cuba, and probably would have made it there safely.
But she said that “she couldn’t give up on the people (she) was helping.” Montes is serving a 25 year prison sentence.

Preludio para un adiós, editorial 335

Preludio para un adiós, editorial 335

Cuba actualidad, La Habana, (PD) Los donantes, que financian al Centro Internacional Demócrata Cristiano sueco (CIDC), para que Primavera Digital salga cada jueves no están contentos con Primavera Digital y nosotros por acá estamos aún más descontentos con ellos. La presión de tales donantes ha crecido y con ella imponen su voluntad de implementar cambios, si es que CIDC quiere continuar recibiendo dinero para Primavera. De lo que se trata, es de si los cambios son para bien.
No les bastan trescientas y tantas entregas ininterrumpidas desde noviembre de 2007. Cosa que nadie ha logrado hasta hoy en Cuba desde 1959. De hecho, han convertido el problema nacional de vivir bajo una dictadura militar totalitaria privados de todos los derechos, en un problema euro-postmoderno de representatividad a partir de cuotas de sexo, raza, edad, etc.
Hasta han llegado a cuestionar que brindemos nuestro espacio a cubanos residentes fuera de Cuba, porque entre otras cosas se trata de “promover jóvenes con potencial” y los cubanos exiliados que hemos publicado…están viejos. No queremos referirnos a las damas, porque nuestra antigua y deficiente formación, no nos permite llamar vieja a ninguna dama.

Se trata de que más temprano que tarde, no estemos con vosotros como cada jueves. Ya anuncian el fin de este medio. Ellos, nuestros antiguos patrocinadores de CIDC han sido nuestro elemento conectivo con la democracia, las técnicas digitales modernas, del periodismo moderno y otras fruslerías del mundo real y su vida cotidiana. Esa vida de la que fuimos privados durante más de cincuenta y cinco años de totalitarismo castrista. Desde aquel instante, nos topamos con la poca diferencia entre nuestra vida y las relaciones afirmadas en su momento entre los esclavos y los antiguos esclavistas.
Alegan que debido a nuestra falta de voluntad para junto a ellos (CIDC) “desarrollar y elevar Primavera a ser una revista digital aún mejor, ahora ya dicen nuestros donantes no”. Ya teníamos noticia de que “tal cosa como la igualdad no existe en ninguna parte del mundo”, fuera de la Declaración Universal de los Derechos Humanos y la Constitución de los Estados Unidos. Esto quizás lo explique todo. Cualquier grupo colegiado de idiotas o de albaceas primados de chequera ajena, a partir de la convocación de los Judas de ocasión de aquí y de allá, puede hacer posible cualquier cosa, y bueno lo hicieron.
Hemos dado lo mejor de nosotros durante los últimos siete años, pero para ellos no es suficiente. Han tomado y elevado a categorías estelares incidentes fortuitos que nunca se produjeron hasta este momento y pensamos que no se produjeron, porque no estaban presentes los actores necesarios para tales ocurrencias.
Nos dicen que les parece muy bien que asumamos la responsabilidad y la gestión de la publicación. Pero argumentan que la misma, está registrada en Suecia, entonces, Primavera Digital y CIDC trabajarían bajo las leyes de publicación suecas. Así y de acuerdo con esto último, el CIDC se responsabilizaría de nuestra publicación y hasta de su contenido. Cosa que encontramos inaceptable. Rechazamos enviar nuestros materiales para la censura y revisión por parte de CIDC, como hemos rechazado siempre esta misma censura y revisión por parte del gobernante Partido Comunista y su Departamento ideológico.
Por supuesto que hay distancias que salvar. En el caso de nuestro rechazo al gobernante Partido Comunista, nos podría acarrear prisión y otras formas depuradas del almacén de espantos del castrismo. En el caso de CIDC y como son cristianos, el daño y la “evaluación de riesgos” es mucho menor.
Felizmente para nosotros, son cristianos y hasta demócratas. De ahí la consideración con que nos han tratado para cerrar este espacio de acuerdo con el buen ver de los antes mencionados donantes, de quienes también pensamos optimistas irreductibles como somos, que son igualmente cristianos y hasta demócratas.
Esto podría ser el preludio para el adiós que nos imponen las circunstancias. Cuando este llegue, se lo haremos saber cómo ya es costumbre, desde este “espacio sin censura para todos los cubanos”.

Cuba dictatorship continues to get away with everything....

"U.S. sanctions North Korean companies on Cuba weapons case"

 
 
 
I guess inspector Clouseau finished his investigation and gave his recommendations to the UN.
 
 
 
How can Cuba NOT receive any type of sanction or time out?? Are you freaking kidding me...
 
 

jtamayo@ElNuevoHerald.com

The U.S. Treasury Department on Wednesday sanctioned two North Korean companies and 18 cargo ships for a shipment of Cuban weapons that violated a U.N. arms embargo on Pyongyang, and barely mentioned Cuba’s role in the case.
Ocean Maritime Management Company, Ltd., the Chongchongang Shipping Company and the freighter were put on a list that subjects them to seizures of their bank accounts and forbids U.S. entities from doing business with them.
A Treasury statement said the sanctions were sparked by the case of the Chong Chon Gang, a North Korean freighter intercepted in Panama last summer and found to be carrying 240 tons of Cuban weapons to Pyongyang.
The 1,100-word statement mentioned Cuba only once, to note that the weapons were going “from Cuba to the DPRK” — Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, the official name of North Korea.
“How about sanctioning the owners of the Cuban weapons that were being smuggled … or how about sanctioning the Cuban officials that made the deal” with North Korea, wrote Mauricio Claver-Carone in his blog, Capitol Hill Cubans.
A knowledgeable Washington official noted that perhaps Treasury did not feel it was necessary to sanction Cuban government entities and individuals because they already are under strong sanctions from the U.S. trade embargo.
The U.N. Security Council on Monday added Ocean Maritime Management Company to its list of violators of the U.N. arms embargo on Pyongyang, which exposed the North Korean company to banking and travel sanctions.
Cuba argued that it did not violate the embargo, which bans the “transfer” of weapons, because the “obsolete” weapons aboard the Chong Chon Gang were being sent to North Korea to be repaired and then returned.
A panel of UNSC experts who investigated the case nevertheless found in a March report that both Cuba and North Korea had violated the embargo, put on Pyongyang because of its efforts to develop nuclear weapons and long-range missiles.
The UNSC decision Monday also spared Cuba any sanctions, with Latin American diplomats at the United Nations saying that Russia, which has a veto in the Security Council, had strongly opposed sanctioning any Cuban entity.
U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Samantha Power, issued a statement Tuesday branding the Cuban weapons shipment as “a cynical, outrageous and illegal attempt by Cuba and North Korea to circumvent United Nations sanctions.”
UNSC experts found the Cuban weapons, including two anti-aircraft missile systems and 16 engines for Mig-21 jets, were hidden under tons of sugar in the hold of the freighter and that the weapons were not declared in the cargo manifest.
Cuba refused to identify the island officials and companies involved in the shipment, saying its agreement with North Korea required confidentiality.
The shipment was the single largest cargo of weapons bound for North Korea intercepted under the embargo, the experts wrote in their report.

"La Raza CEO: 'USA! USA!' Chants 'Made Me Angry' "

Hmmm...You live in the United States, your family and  friends left their prvious country because it SUCKS and you get angry with USA chants??

God bless AMERICA who open the doors to my family from that cesspool country of Cuba.



La Raza President and CEO Janet Murguia said it sickened her to hear Americans against illegal immigration chanting "USA! USA!" at protests around the country.

Singling out the Murrieta demonstrators during her keynote address at La Raza's annual conference in Los Angeles on Monday, Murguia accused them of having "cloaked their hatred in patriotism" by shouting "'USA! USA!' again and again."
"It made me angry," she said. "In fact, I was outraged."
Murguia demanded that the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants who are currently here receive amnesty and said the road to the White House for Republicans goes through the Latino community and La Raza. She also said Republicans who want to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program or do not want to pass comprehensive amnesty legislation will not get Hispanic votes. And she repeatedly claimed that protesting illegal immigration was "un-American."
"What we saw in Murrieta is not patriotism," she asserted. "It is ugly, divisive, and yet another low in a debate I thought could not get much lower."
Murguia did not say anything about the "Viva La Raza!" chants from pro-amnesty advocates in Murrieta. She also failed to mention that the number of illegal immigrant children who have unlawfully entered the country drastically spiked in the year after Obama enacted DACA in 2012. And a Pew Research report, based on data obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, found that nearly 90% of these children are teenagers and not just "little kids," as Murguia claimed nearly all of them were.
In addition, Texas state Senator Dan Patrick said there are 100,000 illegal immigrant gang members in Texas and somewhere between one in five and one in ten illegal immigrants are actually apprehended. But Murguia said it was "reprehensible" for Republicans to be concerned about disease and crime that these "little kids" may be bringing across the border.

INFORME DE DERECHOS HUMANOS EN CUBA / HUMAN RIGHTS REPORT RELEASE

Hermana de Antúnez denuncia su tortura

"Mafiosi are 'excommunicated', pope says"

 

Mafiosi are 'excommunicated', Pope says......

 
 
 
Does that include the MAFIA of Cuba????

Mother of Allen Gross dies

Allen Gross who was arrested in Cuba back in 2009, get this...for providing Internet networks for the Jewish community in Cuba. He was sentenced to 15 years in prison by the DICTATORSHIP of Cuba.

His mother passes away and Cuba REFUSES to let Allen Gross go to the funeral. Josefina "Vidal Sassoon" Ferreiro, an official at Cuba's Foreign Ministry says that Gross can't go to the funeral  "no matter the reason."


YET.......Rene Gonzalez, a member of the Cuban Five, A CONVICTED SPY for the Mafia of Cuba, was allowed to return to Cuba to visit his brother, who had lung cancer, and for the funeral of his father.

dialogue, Embargo, and La Paz...









"Dialogue" a term used frequently by the Leftist and the feel gooders as the solution to the problems in Cuba, Venezuela, and the FARC in Colombia. When I was in my early twenties, a certain person in my life would throw out term "DIALOGUE,"  "LA PAZ" frequently and would proceed to gather every one around for a lengthy round table discussion. Yes, a feel good moment, but these entire episodes would be for this person to impose HIS IDEAS, HIS OPINIONS, AND WHAT SHOULD BE DONE and that was it!


Do I need Al Sharpton rhyme to explain what I am trying to get across? The person above about to be executed did not have the luxury of a "dialogue."

SOS CUBA.........for the last 55 YEARS!!!!!!!!!!!!

Acoso y amenazas de muerte contra activista de UNPACU

ON CUBA'S BRAVE DEMOCRATS

Posted: 16 Jun 2014 06:30 AM PDT
By Jay Nordlinger in National Review:

On Friday, I wrote about a statement signed by hundreds of Cuban democracy activists. One of the things they were pleading for was a continuation of U.S. sanctions on Cuba (i.e., the Castro dictatorship). At the time, there were over 550 signatories. Now I see that the list is over 800. On Friday, I wrote,

"The list includes some of the people I admire most in all the world — starting with the first name, Antúnez, the moniker of the leader who has been in and out of prison more times than I can count, and who has had the living hell beaten out of him (his wife has, too), and who never, ever breaks (neither does she)."

There ought to be a statue of Antúnez somewhere (of Iris, too). If I had the nerve and the ability, I’d do it myself.

Antúnez and his wife have, once more, been arrested. And brutalized. State security agents told Antúnez that he had become a barrier to the normalization of relations between Havana and Washington . He was strangled and lost consciousness twice. He was also injected with an unknown substance. Before he was released, he was told that he is more at risk than ever. Which is believable.

To read a press release from the Directorio Democrático Cubano, go here. To hear Antúnez give his testimony, over the phone (in Spanish), go here.

In Cuba , opposition to the lifting of sanctions is punishable by up to 15 years in prison. The 800-some signatories have risked this. I wish that our anti-embargo people here in America would remember this risk, once in a while. Maybe remark on it. They are free to express their view. People such as Antúnez have a different view — and they are not free to express it. If they do, they are strangled, one way or another.

Cuban democrats are, honestly, some of the bravest and best people on earth. I hardly have the words to express my admiration for them, or to express my contempt for their enemies.

US business leaders visit Cuba and assess Cuba business climate

blah..blah...blah.....How many times do we have to hear when some US Official or Hollywood ELITE visit Cuba praise the Cuban DICTATORSHIP and tell the media:


"We're very pleased to be here," Donohue said. "We're learning a lot about the changes taking place in Cuba."



 Cuba is "fundamentally different in terms of the number of people that are operating under the private system ... not working for the government




Nice feel good comments, BUT


CUBA IS NOT FREE

NO FREEDOM OF PRESS

NO FREEDOM OF SPEECH

CUBAN  DICTATORSHIP BEATS UP WOMEN DEMONSTRATORS

CUBAN DICTATORSHIP INVOLVED IN VENEZUELA(Oh no Alfredo, our sources tells us that NO Cuban officials are involved in the Venezuelan crises. Maduro told us himself, plus the media has found no connection, after asking one person)

PRIMERA TRASMISION DE LA TV CUBANA... 1950

AQUÍ PARA LOS HISTORIADORES DE CUBA QUE SEPAN LA VERDAD DE LO QUE FUÉ NUESTRA PATRIA ANTES DE FIDEL. Luis H. Valdes
Estos videos (duran 15 segundos cada uno) me crearon un nudo en la garganta y se lo crearan a muchos, son del 1950, cuando Cuba era Cuba de verdad, una Cuba de damas y caballeros, de gentileza y maneras, de civilización y educación, de elegancia y distinción, de salud pública gratis de verdad, sin que te robaran el 97% de tu sueldo. Como decía Margaret Mitchell en el final de su novela "Gone with Wind": "Idos con el viento los tiempos de las damiselas y los caballeros andantes que no volveran". ARestrepo
