San Isidro: The latest episode of the imperial reality show

San isidro Parque Trillo

Donald Trump is leaving. But some Cubans, who arouse only shame in others, are claiming him as their president. “Trump 2020,” they shout. As President, he’s done almost everything to choke the people of Cuba, and now he has the cynicism to say that this is to help them. When he blocked, delayed, or increased the cost of the arrival of petroleum shipments, when he blocked commerce and transfers of funds to the country, he said sarcastically that they don’t know how to manage their economy.

Neither the bad weather, the rough seas, or the overloading of a yacht in no way suited to make the crossing from Mexico to Cuba, could daunt the 82 expeditionaries committed to being “free or martyrs,” as the Granma broke through the fog, in the words of poet Luis Rogelio Nogueras. December 2, 1956, at a point on the southern coast of eastern Cuba known as Los Cayuelos, the men under Fidel’s leadership disembarked, intent upon honoring the blood spilled in the name of independence before them.

Maradona and Macron’s reproach

Maradona macron

Like many in the world, French President Emmanuel Macron lamented the death of Maradona and published a text demonstrating his knowledge of the game and more than a bit of poetic sensitivity. Forty-five lines in which he traces the profile of the man today recognized as the best soccer player of all time. In the next to last paragraph, however, it seems as if a strange air enters his writing through some opening and quickens his pulse: “Diego Maradona,” writes Macron,” will also live on in popular joy in other fields.

Maradona never betrayed the people

Maradona Fidel

No one carried the ball closer to his feet, as if by hand; no one was so transparent and, at the same time, so sensitive, on the field and off; no one ran, in barely ten seconds, almost 60 meters with the ball “tied” to his cleats, to let it fly for a goal that shook the world, in 1986. On the world’s soccer fields, where he was recognized for his ability, but rejected for his ideas, no one was as misunderstood. His rebelliousness, and later his drug addictions were the pretexts used by the suits to censure him

Since the end of the 19th century, the San Isidro neighborhood in Old Havana was considered a “tolerance zone,” until 1959, when life changed with the triumph of the Revolution. It was a neighborhood of humble people, harassed by the presence of Yankee Marines who came ashore in search of fun and cheap sex. Once the butt of jokes, San Isidro now has 14 family doctors’ offices, a traditional medicine clinic, a veterinary clinic, three child care centers, a kindergarten and four schools.
