El Adversario

“Ay Cuba, pedazo de uno /que adonde vayas vas dentro/ que no te quepa la duda/ nunca te abandonaremos.” Así resuena un fragmento de una canción del cantautor cubano Raúl Torres que semanas atrás se convertiría en himno y estímulo de todo un pueblo. Vuelvo a ella, y sin pretenderlo, me parece entonada por muchos en el mundo que en los últimos días han vuelto a levantar, a sentar banderas con esta madre hermosa y única que es Cuba.

Hablo no solo de los cubanos que desde varias regiones del planeta la aman y la defienden siempre, sino también de los amigos, los hermanos que se unen a nuestras causas más nobles, y a unas horas de las votaciones en Naciones Unidas del informe contra el bloqueo económico, financiero y comercial impuesto a la isla hace mas de 50 años, se elevan como una sola voz por…

#Cuba: la ilusión de los “opositores”

October 23, 2017

Cuba por Siempre

Por Agustín Palermo

El periodista cubano Edmundo García, que dirige el programa radial alternativo “La Tarde Se Mueve” en Miami, acaba de publicar un trabajo periodístico extraordinario. Resulta que el pasado mes de agosto viajó a Cuba y entrevistó a un grupo de “opositores”, que estaban vinculados a postularse a las elecciones del Poder Popular que se celebra en octubre en la Isla. Recorrió desde Ciego de Ávila hasta Pinar del Río y realizó diecisiete entrevistas; sus interlocutores fueron personas que “trabajan” en la base así como los propios dirigentes. Las entrevistas se encuentran en el canal de YouTube, con el siguiente nombre: Edmundo W García.

Over a decade ago, when the government of Evo Morales took office in Bolivia, only 40,000 Bolivians received gas at home. Today, 3.5 million have access to the service where they  live.

opposition from the local oligarchy and the U.S. 

Over a decade ago, when the government of Evo Morales took office in Bolivia, only 40,000 Bolivians received gas at home. Today, 3.5 million have access to the service where they live.

The nationalization of the hydrocarbon industry in 2006 resulted in economic progress for Bolivia. It allowed the country to multiply national gas export revenues from two billion dollars in 2005, to 31.5 billion dollars in 2016.

The local oligarchy conspired with the U.S. embassy in the Andean nation to overthrow the Movement Toward Socialism (MAS)…

WE DENOUNCE  LUIS  ALMAGRO’S LATEST  UNLAWFUL  INTERVENTION  IN  THE  AFFAIRS  OF  VENEZUELA

bolivarian republic of venezuela.jpgFriends of Venezuela denounce the actions of the Organization of American States (OAS) Secretary General Luis Almagro, who, today — the 13th of October 2017 – in Washington DC in the United States of America (USA), purported to swear in the members of a so-called “parallel” Venezuelan Supreme Court, in gross violation of the principles of international law and sovereignty.
Almagro’s actions are nothing less than a gross and offensive attempt to frustrate the Venezuelan people’s peaceful and democratic process !
On the 30th of July 2017 we were all inspired by the Venezuelan people’s courage, when over 8 million people participated in the elections for a National Constituent Assembly, and thereby halted the campaign of orchestrated violence that sectors of the political Opposition forces in…

No credible explanation exists for the various symptoms described by U.S. diplomatic staff, and experts deny the relevance of the laws of physics evoked in some of the theories presented.

by: Sergio Alejandro Gómez | internet@granma.cu

unfounded and implausible.jpgThe strange story of U.S. diplomats suffering hearing loss and other damage to their health, while working in Cuba burst into the media this past August. The first of the alleged incidents goes back to November of 2016, and the most recent supposedly occurred just a few weeks ago.

Nevertheless, to date no credible explanation exists for the various symptoms described, and experts deny the relevance of the laws of physics evoked in some of the hypotheses presented.

The case, that appears to have been extracted from a spy novel, is being taken very seriously in Havana.

No evidence

As directed by the highest level of government, Cuban authorities…

On September 29, 2017, the US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson announced the decision to significantly downscale the diplomatic staff of the US embassy in Havana and withdraw all their relatives, claiming that there had been “attacks” perpetrated against US Government officials in Cuba which have harmed their health.
Once again, on October 3, the US Government, in an unwarranted act, decided that 15 officials of the Cuban Embassy in Washington should depart from the United States, claiming that the US had reduced their diplomatic staffing levels in Havana and that the Cuban Government had failed to take all appropriate steps to prevent “attacks” against them.

The Cuban government has offered to send four brigades of electrical workers and a fully equipped mobile hospital with 39 doctors to help in rebuilding Puerto Rico after the U.S. colony was battered by hurricanes Irma and Maria, CubaDebate reported Sept. 25.

Fernando González Llort 4.jpgIf the U.S. government “allows us, we will be there to give a hand in whatever is necessary,” said Fernando González, president of the Cuban Institute for Friendship with the Peoples, at a meeting in Havana Sept. 23 to commemorate Grito de Lares and support Puerto Rico’s right to independence. That’s the date of the 1868 uprising by Puerto Ricans against Spanish colonialism.

Edwin González Vázquez.jpg“We are eternally thankful for this gesture from our Cuban friends who — in the middle of adverse circumstances and everything they are doing to recover from the effects they suffered with the passage of Hurricane Irma — have once…
