As we sit here, there is US aid across the border in Colombia. We have met many people here who tell us they are desperately in need of aid. Why not allow it through?

Nicolás Maduro, Venezuelan president

First of all, it’s a show, that the United States government has set up with the compliance of the Colombian government to humiliate the Venezuelans. Venezuela is a country that has the capacity to satisfy all the necessities of our people.

Venezuela is a country that has problems like any country. We are in a battle that has been going on for many years, a successful battle, to reduce poverty, misery, in order to increase the job capacity, to establish a social security system to protect 100% of our pensioners, in order to establish a public health system that reaches all the Venezuelan…

The coup d’état was coordinated by retired Colonel Oswaldo Valentín García Palomo, who was arrested on Jan. 31 in an intelligence operation in Venezuela.

The Venezuelan Minister of Communications, Jorge Rodríguez, held a press conference on Thursday in which he showed evidence of the plan of attempted coup d’état carried out by the rightwing against constitutional President Nicolás Maduro, with the participation of the governments of the United States and Colombia.

The official revealed that thanks to a Venezuelan intelligence operation, retired colonel Oswaldo Valentín García Palomo, who was trying to enter the country to organize a military coup d’état, was arrested.

“The vehicle in which García Palomo travelled to our country (Venezuela) was put in by Venezuelan intelligence,” which was captured on January 31, according to data provided by the Minister of Communication.

He denounced that the U.S. and Colombian governments supported the…

Si yo no fuera cubano

February 7, 2019

La Santa Mambisa

Si yo no fuera cubano, cuántas cosas me habría perdido, cuánta sustancia criolla, qué cantidad de carcajadas y apretones de manos. Si la cigüeña me hubiera lanzado en otras latitudes, no me habría criado con las puertas de mi casa siempre abiertas en medio de un vecindario rural, tranquilo y pintoresco. No me habría graduado como universitario sin pagar un centavo.

Me faltarían las fotos junto al busto de Martí en la escuelita primaria, el recuerdo de los padres atando pañoletas al cuello de sus pequeños hijos, el barullo del barrio en las Olimpiadas de 1972 después del nocaut fulminante de Teófilo Stevenson sobre la mandíbula prominente y cuadrada del yanqui Duanne Bobbick, al que apodaban «La Esperanza Blanca» y que, esperanza al fin, pues se la comió el chivo, aun cuando no era verde.

If I were not Cuban, how many things I would have lost, how much Creole substance, how much laughter and handshakes. If the stork had thrown me in other latitudes, I would not have grown up with the doors of my house always open in the middle of a rural, quiet and picturesque neighborhood. I would not have graduated as a university student without paying a penny.

I would be missing the photos next to the bust of Marti in the primary school, the memory of parents tying scarves around their young children’s necks, the din of the neighborhood in the 1972 Olympics after Teofilo Stevenson’s fulminating knockout on the prominent and square jaw Yankee Duanne Bobbick, who was nicknamed “The White Hope” and, hope at last, it was eaten by the goat, even though it was not green.

If I…

La creación de Juan Guaidó: cómo los laboratorios de cambio de régimen estadounidenses crearon al líder del golpe de estado en #Venezuela

February 5, 2019

Cubano y punto

Juan Guaidó es el producto de un proyecto de una década supervisado por los entrenadores de élite de Washington para cambios de gobierno. Mientras se hace pasar por un campeón de la democracia, ha pasado años al frente de una violenta campaña de desestabilización.

Antes del fatídico día 22 de enero, menos de uno de cada cinco venezolanos había oído hablar de Juan Guaidó. Hace solo unos meses atrás, este hombre de 35 años era un personaje oscuro en un grupo de extrema derecha políticamente marginal, estrechamente asociado con actos espantosos de violencia callejera. Incluso en su propio partido, Guaidó había sido una figura de nivel medio en la Asamblea Nacional, dominada por la oposición, que ahora se encuentra bajo desacato según la Constitución venezolana.

NOTE:   Sign the petition HERE to tell your elected officials NO US-ENGINEERED COUP In Venezuela!

“People Of The U.S., I Ask For Your Support To Reject The Interference Of Donald Trump’s Government In Making My Homeland A Vietnam In Latin America. Don’t Allow It!”  President Nicolas Maduro, January 31, 2017.

Saturday, March 16, 12pm
White House, Washington, D.C.

Sign On As An Endorser Here!

On Saturday, March 16, thousands of people will march in Washington, D.C. against the Trump administration’s effort to engineer a coup in Venezuela and a new devastating war there. The aggressive policy against Venezuela repeats the ugly pattern of wars for regime change in the oil-rich countries of Iraq and Libya. National Security Advisor John Bolton is reading from the same script, declaring a “troika of tyranny” in Latin America (like the “axis of evil”) as a precursor for…

A stormy night of strong wind and rain hits the capital city

havana shaken

Despite forecasts, a rapid change in the weather surprised many residents of the capital last night. In its last advisory yesterday, the Meteorological Institute stated, “This morning, in the southeastern Gulf of Mexico, an extra-tropical low developed, extending southeast from which is a cold front. Over the next few hours, ahead of this front, a line of thunderstorms could form, and as these systems move east, the western portion of the country will be affected, tonight and into the dawn hours.”

Cubans, accustomed to such advisories were not alarmed, not suspecting the magnitude of the events to come after 8:00pm.

Residents were shaken by the tempestuous roar of the wind, one gust after another, increasingly strong. Telephone calls began to spread the news: A tornado had hit Luyanó; there was a locally severe…

CHOMSKY: “ELLOS ENTENDIERON QUE ERA MÁS SENCILLO CREAR CONSUMIDORES QUE SOMETER A ESCLAVOS”

January 8, 2019

Cultura y resistencia

“Mientras la población general sea pasiva, apática y desviada hacia el consumismo o el odio de los vulnerables, los poderosos podrán hacer lo que quieran, y los que sobrevivan se quedarán a contemplar el resultado”.

por María Hidalgo

Noam Chomsky es filósofo, escritor, controvertido activista y uno de los lingüistas más brillantes y reconocidos de la actualidad. Su trabajo es estudiado en las universidades de todo el mundo, desde facultades de psicología hasta titulaciones lingüísticas, pasando por muchas otras disciplinas. En este post os explicaremos brevemente lo que él considera la estrategia más común en la manipulación mediática. Os dejamos una de sus últimas reflexiones sobre un tema que nos afecta a todos: la industria de la publicidad.

“La industria de las relaciones públicas, la industria de la publicidad es la que se dedica a la creación de consumidores. Este es un fenómeno que se desarrolló en los países más libres, en Gran Bretaña…
