Bush, Health And Education

Bush, Health And Education

I will not refer to Bush’s health and education, but to that of his neighbors. It was not an improvised declaration. The AP agency tells us what his opening words were: “Tenemos corazones grandes en este país” (We have big hearts in this country); he said this in Spanish in front of 250 representatives of private and religious groups, foundations and NGOs who had come to Washington with all expenses paid by his government. Of these, some 100 came from the United States.

Cuba's Self-criticism

The National Directorate of the UJC (Communist Youth League) agreed to communicate the following measure as it was concluding its strategy: “Last Saturday, July 7, the National Bureau of the Communist Youth decided to tighten up the plan for the mobilization of forces of the Student Work Brigades (BET), guided by the principle of using students for tasks of a social and recreational nature, in numbers adjusted to a necessary minimum and within municipalities where they reside, in order to avoid relying on transportation.

World Tyranny The Basics Of The Killing Machine

The Good Lord Protected Me From Bush

An unusual news item appeared a few minutes ago, coming from EFE and REUTERS. I am going by the Spanish version: “One day, the Good Lord will take Fidel Castro away.”

An Honorable Response

An Honorable Response

Events follow each other at an incredible pace. Sometimes, several occur simultaneously. Their inherent significance and usefulness as examples is what I wish to, or, better, feel compelled to comment on. I am not referring, today, to what occurred in Geneva, which is considered a well-deserved revolutionary victory for Third World nations. Rather, I shall refer to Cuba’s response to the European Council on Foreign Relations, published last Friday, June 22, on Gramna’s front page.

Another Argument For The Manifesto

Another Argument For The Manifesto

Why did I once claim, in one of my reflections, that Bush had authorized or ordered my death?

A Reflection On My Reflections

A Reflection On My Reflections

While writing a brief reflection is helpful, in that the hundred and twelve accredited foreign newspapers and press agencies in our country that receive it in advance can publish important parts of its text, long reflections allow me to expound, as extensively as I wish, on concepts I deem important and which provide our people, the main protagonist against any potential aggression, as well as countries facing similar circumstances, the required information to form their own judgment. This dilemma is, for me, a headache.

Vilma’s Struggles

Vilma's Struggles

Vilma is dead. Even though the news was expected, it was still an impact. Out of respect for her delicate health condition, I never raised her name in my reflections.

I Hope That No-one Say That I Am Gratuitously Attacking Bush. Surely They Will Understand My Reasons For Strongly Criticiz

I hope that no-one say that I am gratuitously attacking Bush. Surely they will understand my reasons for strongly criticizing his policies.
