The truth and example of Cuba will prevail

Cuba niños

The more resolutely the Cuban people demonstrate their refusal to retreat in the face of hostility and the tightening of the blockade, our enemies’ campaigns grow increasingly more crude and shameless. They now presume to attack Cuba raising banners, incredibly, in defense of the poorest members of the population, in particular Blacks and those of mixed race. Today the Revolution continues to be, as Fidel said on April 16, 1961, on the eve of the Playa Girón invasion (on the Bay of Pigs).

Soberana is a go!

Canel cientificos

There is a small island country, bathed in the waters of the Caribbean. A country as small as David, with the same courage when the time comes to face a giant.

Vilma chose to live on the side of duty

vilma espin

Death is a definitive word, but there are beings for whom it is hardly fitting, since dying means that something has ended.

Geo-semiotics of human rights

Colombia Derechos Humanos

The law is not the same for peoples who have never experienced social justice. The objective conditions in any given place determine the degree of awareness and practice of human rights, no matter how many specialized organizations are active there. What does the Charter of Human Rights mean where illiteracy, hunger, unemployment and insalubrity reign? Little or nothing. The defense of the rights conquered by humanity cannot be reduced to demagogic declarations that adorn the reformist verbiage and market philanthropy that abound.
