Embarked upon overthrowing Venezuela’s socialist government, the U.S. government now renews efforts to squash Cuba. The U.S. record of implacable hostility features terror attacks, military invasion, germ warfare, internal subversion, and almost 60 years of U.S. economic blockade. Devoid of natural resources ready for U.S. plunder, Cuba offends by having defended socialism and national independence. Now Title III of the U.S. 1996 Helms Burton Act joins an arsenal of weapons employed in what Cubans regard as genocidal aggression.

Inflicting suffering and destabilization

Helms Burton is complex but centers on tightening the economic blockade; preparing for a transition government; and by means of Title III, inflicting suffering and destabilization.  The latter is taking place now in Venezuela, by other means.

Title III opens the door for the former owners and the…

President Miguel Díaz-Canel called for waging war on bureaucracy, against delays in administrative decisions at all levels, and any manifestation of insensitivity to problems that affect the population unnecessarily, during the final meeting concluding the Council of Ministers’ visit to the eastern province of Granma.

Of the 33 actions agreed upon during his first visit in June of 2018, 17 had been completed and work on 16 is moving forward; while solutions to several others are not advancing at the pace projected, including public works in Yara, the restoration of heritage homes in Manzanillo, and corrective work on this coastal city’s aqueduct.

“We cannot advance if we are slow in making decisions. What must be decided centrally, let it be centralized, but quickly. If the answer is no, report this right away, and if it is yes, even…

Members of Cuban civil society, intellectuals, journalists, and students gathered on May 3 in Havana, in a public hearing convened by the Association of Cuban Jurists and the Cuban United Nations Association to discuss the activation of the Helms-Burton Act’s Title III, a law that violates the principle of sovereignty, and seeks to destroy our nation and subordinate it to the power of a foreign government.

The public hearing was held at the Higher Institute of International Relations in the Cuban capital and featured a panel that included Ricardo Alarcón de Quesada, former president of the National Assembly; attorney Rodolfo Dávalos; Luis Solá Vila, president of the Cuban Society of Public…

Former Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, imprisoned for more than a year for alleged acts of corruption, is today the most important political prisoner in the world. 

This was stated by the prominent intellectual and political activist Noam Chomsky, during an interview with the channel Democracy Now, amplified by the portal Rede Brasil Atual. 

According to the professor of linguistics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), the political prison seeks to silence Lula who, when he presided over Brazil, was the voice of the ‘global South’. 

Chomsky placed the prison of the former Brazilian ruler in a universal context and compared his situation with that of Australian journalist Julian Assange, creator of WikiLeaks, arrested on Thursday.

The renowned American linguist, of 90 years, perceives, from the historical perspective, the imprisonment of both as similar to that of the founder and general secretary…

Ecuador vs. Assange: One Year Silenced

It seems that in recent days, Ecuador has become more tyrannical towards Assange than Britain is. With the recent terrible visit that Cassandra Fairbanks had and threats from the government to increase their protocol against Assange, it seems the country that once gave him asylum and support has turned on him. In fact, due to the US government coercing Ecuador, Moreno and his colleagues view Assange as an enemy. By gagging Assange for 8 months without visitors, phone or internet, the Ecuadorian government violated international law and literally tortured a man they gave refugee status.

When Julian’s lawyers took his treatment to the International American Court of Human Rights, the United States government threatened to stop funding them. 9 US Senators urged the defunding in December of 2018 but the timing is actually unusual and though it may be coincidental, seems to be…

March 30, 2019 “Information Clearing House“ –  Venezuela is America’s current target for mass destabilization in the hope of installing a puppet government.

America has for years been waging an economic war against Venezuela, including debilitating sanctions which have dramatically affected the state’s ability to purchase medicines, and even mundane replacement parts needed in buses, ambulances, etc. Alongside the economic war there has been a steady propaganda war, but in recent months, the propaganda has escalated dramatically, from corporate media to US political figures.

Venezuela is described as “the country pilots are refusing to fly to,” as per a March 18, 2019, AP article on American Airlines cancelling all flights to…

Cuba will strengthen its medical cooperation with Mozambique to help counter the impact of the devastating cyclone Idai, which devastated several countries in southern Africa, and in particular will send this Tuesday a field hospital with all its staff and essential equipment to Mozambique.

The announcement was made today by Anayansi Rodriguez Camejo, Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs, who said that the new medical brigade will join the 372 Cuban health collaborators working in that country, of which 36 cooperate since the first time the cyclone touched land on March 14, according to information from the cubaminrex digital site.

She added that their presence responds to the historical Cuban-African solidarity links and in particular to the catastrophic damages caused by the hurricane, with close to 500 deaths, according to statistics from the National Institute of Emergency Management of the government of that Republic, although several news…
