Bush, Mamb?

Bush, Mamb?

Viva Cuba libre! (Long live free Cuba!). That was the war cry throughout the plains and the mountains, forests and sugarcane fields, identifying those who began Cuba’s first war of independence on October 10, 1868.

Bush, Hunger And Death

Bush, Hunger And Death

For the first time, just before the UN discusses, as it does every year, the project of the Cuban resolution condemning the blockade, the President of the United States announces that he will adopt new measures to accelerate the “transition period” in our country, equivalent to a new conquest of Cuba by force.

The Elections

The Elections

This was done in a Declaration of her Ministry of Foreign Affairs under the title of “Cuba’s appeal to end NATO’s unjustified aggression against Yugoslavia.”

Aznar’s Silence

Aznar's Silence

En una mesa redonda transmitida por la televisión cubana que tuvo lugar el 25 de abril del 2003, revelé que el entonces presidente del gobierno español José María Aznar, aliado de la superpotencia en genocidios y masacres, se había reunido con el presidente William Clinton el 13 de abril de 1999, en un momento incierto de la guerra contra Yugoslavia, y le expresó textualmente:
