Derecha y Mafia anticubana de Miami financian acciones subversivas contra Cuba en Cumbre de las Américas

February 14, 2018

El joven cubano

Sectores de la ultraderecha y la mafia anticubana de Miami esperan utilizar el escenario de la próxima Cumbre de las Américas, que tendrá lugar en Perú en abril próximo, para intentar desacreditar la imagen de Venezuela y Cuba durante ese evento.

De acuerdo con el financiamiento y entrenamiento que recibe por su condición de agente de la CIA, la contrarrevolucionaria, Rosa María Payá, debe jugar un papel protagónico en el nuevo show anticubano que debe tener lugar a la par de  la Cumbre en Perú.

La maniobra anticubana, además de profundizar en  interrumpir el proceso de normalización de relaciones entre la isla y EEUU, busca, -con la complicidad del Secretario General de la OEA, Luis Almagro-, desacreditar y boicotear el proceso eleccionario que tendrá lugar en la Isla en el mismo mes de abril.

Como se sabe, Payá es una marioneta del senador Marco Rubio quien recientemente incitó a apoyar…

People’s Councils are the true, absolutely democratic authority in Cuban neighborhoods, the essential level of the socialist state’s People’s Power system, an idea Fidel outlined, describing these bodies as the cornerstone of community participation in the resolution of problems.

esteban lazo feb 2018.jpgThis concept was highlighted by Esteban Lazo Hernández, president of the National Assembly of People’s Power, during a recent meeting held in the province, to evaluate a training seminar for presidents of these bodies, with a view toward improving their effectiveness.

Elecciones 2018, el cambio que se avecina

Desde Cuba te cuento


Por: Rouslyn Navia y Ana Isa Vidal

El 24 de febrero de 2013, al conformarse la Asamblea Nacional del Poder Popular, el Presidente Raúl Castro anunció a Cuba y el mundo que no optaría por una tercera reelección y, por ende, no continuaría al frente del país luego de las elecciones que tendrán lugar en este 2018.

Desde entonces, y a medida que la fecha prevista se acercaba, algunos medios internacionales han especulado sobre lo que pudiera ocurrir en la Isla una vez que la generación histórica, aquella que gestó y llevó a cabo la Revolución, no se encontrara al frente del gobierno cubano.

Desde Miami, probablemente, algunos incluso se hayan estado afilando los colmillos a la espera de alguna especie de hecatombe o caos tras el actual proceso electoral.

¿Qué sucederá cuando se conforme la nueva Asamblea Nacional del Poder Popular en este año? ¿Está garantizado el relevo para asumir…

The mere fact of being able to tell Cuban families that a new, effective and safe Cuban pneumococcal vaccine will soon be available, work on which has been advancing since 2006, is already more than just “good news.”

It’s a comforting thought, “after so many years of development of this vaccine candidate, which includes seven serotypes in a single vaccine and, therefore, it is as if we were developing seven vaccines in one. This singularity has made preclinical demonstrations, the pharmaceutical development and clinical demonstration more complex,”…

Cyril Ramaphosa south africa.jpgWhen the president of the ANC, Cyril Ramaphosa, in his inaugural address at the celebration of the ANC 106th birthday rally this past weekend said that we owe Cuba a great debt of gratitude for our freedom, and that we should increase our trade relations with the island’s people, he knows why.

The so-called official version of post-apartheid history many in our country and elsewhere would have us believe is that FW de Klerk woke up one day and decided, out of the goodness of his heart, that it was time for change. That the time had come to release political prisoners (including Nelson Mandela), to unban political organisations and to finally enter into negotiations with the liberation movements, to find lasting peace, and hence he received the Nobel Peace Prize for all his wonderful efforts. Well, you…

ZunZuneo aleteo de subversión enfocado a la juventud cubana

February 4, 2018

El joven cubano

Por Redacción Razones de Cuba

Alas de pura subversión desplegó ZunZuneo, una operación secreta contra Cuba -financiada y dirigida por la Agencia de Estados Unidos para la Ayuda al Desarrollo (USAID)-, destinada a socavar al gobierno a través del ciberespacio, y enfocada a la juventud por su preferencia, interés y acceso a las nuevas tecnologías de la información y la comunicación.

Aunque desde que se reveló al público y se anunció su inoperancia ha sido repudiada en todo el mundo por su trasfondo oscuro e injerencista, ello no significa el fin de las conspiraciones orquestadas por el imperio para acabar con la Revolución.

Esta práctica no se va a detener y los pronósticos no apuntan a que se reduzca, aseveró a la Agencia de Información Nacional (AIN) la doctora Leyda Carrillo, especialista del Centro de Investigaciones de Política Internacional.

El propósito es erosionar la tranquilidad ciudadana, expandir la ideología dominante…
