Alberto Juantorena

Alberto Juantorena

His prestige is gaining strength as an example of Cuba’s great sporting figures. His age and health portray him as the ideal prototype to preside over the Cuban Olympic Committee. Such predictions seem to be right!

Teófilo Stevenson

Teófilo Stevenson

Stevenson has left us. The news arrived yesterday after 4:00 p.m. No other amateur boxer shone so much in the history of that sport. He could have achieved another two Olympic titles hadn’t it been for certain duties that the principles of internationalism imposed on the Revolution. No money in the world would have been enough to bribe Stevenson. Glory be to his memory forever!

Conducts Hard To Forget

What Are The Fc?

These are a method whereby I try to convey the modest knowledge acquired throughout long years which I consider to be useful to the Cuban officials responsible for the production of foodstuffs that are essential for the life of our people, a task that I gladly share with Talía González, an old friend from the times of the campaign to free Elián González.

President Hugo Chávez's address to the People of Venezuela

Some years ago, travelling on the presidential plane of Hugo Chávez of Venezuela with a French friend from Le Monde Diplomatique, we were asked what we thought was happening in Europe. Was there any chance of a move to the left? We replied in the depressed and pessimistic tones typical of the early years of the 21st century. Neither in Britain nor France, nor anywhere in the eurozone, did we see much chance of a political breakthrough.

The Horrible Things That The Empire Offers Us

The Horrible Things That The Empire Offers Us

A piece of news released by AP, the most important US news agency, dated today in Monterrey, Mexico, explains it with irrefutable clarity. This is not the first, and certainly it won’t be the last, about a reality that puts paid to the mountain of lies with which the United States intends to justify the inhuman destiny it reserves for the peoples of our

The 67th Anniversary Of The Victory Over Nazi-Fascism

The 67th Anniversary Of The Victory Over Nazi-Fascism

No political event can be judged outside of the era and the circumstances in which it took place. No one even knows one percent of the fabulous history of Man; but thanks to history, we know about occurrences that go beyond the limits of the imaginable.

The Nobel Peace Laureate

The Nobel Peace Laureate

I will hardly refer to the Cuban people, who one day rid their country of the United States domain, when the imperialist system had reached the height of its power.Men and women of different ages paraded on May Day down the most symbolic squares in all provinces of the country.

What Obama Knows

What Obama Knows

The most demolishing article I have seen nowadays about Latin America was written by Renán Vega Cantor, full professor at the National Pedagogical University of Bogotá, which was published three days ago by the website ‘Rebelión’ under the title “Ecos de la Cumbre de las Américas” (Echoes of the Summit of the Americas).
