The El Paso Diary is written by José Pertierra--an attorney who represents the government of Venezuela in its request for the extradition of Luis Posada Carriles. Pertierra´s journals describe the testimony, evidence, legal skirmishes, quirks and follies of this very historic trial that features for the first time the close collaboration of the United States government with Cuban authorities to prosecute an ex CIA agent who is one of the masterminds of the fifty-year old dirty war against Cuba.

Articles of Fidel Castro Ruz
On the afternoon of September 30, Comandante en Jefe Fidel Castro Ruz received His Excellency José Mário Vaz, President of the Republic of Guinea Bissau. During the fraternal encounter the visitor expressed his gratitude for Cuba’s solidary and unforgettable contribution to the independence struggles of the people of Africa, especially that of his country; as well as the role played by compañero Fidel in that regard.
On September 22, Comandante en Jefe Fidel Castro Ruz received His Excellency Shinzo Abe, Prime Minister of Japan. The distinguished official, leading a delegation from his country, expressed his pleasure on visiting Cuba for the first time to the leader of the Cuban Revolution. He also recalled Fidel’s visit to Japan and its significance in strengthening the ties of friendship between the people of Japan and Cuba.
President Dwight D. Eisenhower broke diplomatic relations with Cuba on January 3, 1961. Fifty-four years later, on Monday the 20th of July, the United States and Cuba will advance toward normalization of diplomatic relations. Presumably, the US will no longer treat Cuba as its enemy and treat the island simply as its next-door neighbor. Maybe … The raising of the flags at the embassies on the 20th of July is much anticipated. But what does this all really mean?
On January 11, Maradona spoke about the letter I had sent him and showed the document that had aroused curiosity but he didn’t mention the details. Last week-end he again mentioned the letter in Telesur. To set things clear, I include the full texts of my exchange with Maradona.
I do not trust the US policy, nor have I ever exchanged a single word with them, something that in no way means a rejection to a peaceful settlement of conflicts or war dangers. Defending peace is a duty of all. Any peaceful and negotiated solution to the problems between the United States and peoples, or any people of Latin America, which does not involve force or the use of force, should be addressed according to international standards and principles.
Maybe the empire thought that we would not honor our word when, during days of uncertainty in the past century, we affirmed that even if the USSR were to disappear Cuba would continue struggling. World War II broke out on September 1, 1939 when Nazi-fascist troops invaded Poland and struck like a lightning over the heroic people of the USSR, who contributed 27 million lives to preserve mankind from that brutal massacre that ended the lives of 50 million persons.
Havana, Apr 15 (Prensa Latina) The historic leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro, held on Saturday afternoon a fraternal meeting with former Argentine soccer star Diego Armando Maradona. Maradona arrived in Havana on Friday night from Caracas, occasion in which he visited the Mountain Barracks where he paid tribute to the Supreme Commander of the Bolivarian Revolution Hugo Rafael Chavez Frias, and met with the President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro.
Some days ago, on May 28, the violent battle waged at El Uvero was commemorated with well deserved references. An elemental duty forces me to clarify the facts. During those weeks, Manuel Piñeiro, “Red Beard”, as the leopard, who never changes its spots, as the saying goes, managed to send to Santiago de Cuba.
I took a good look at Obama in the famous “Summit Meeting”. Sometimes he was overcome by tiredness, he unwillingly shut his eyes but, at times, he slept with open eyes. The Cartagena Summit was not a meeting of a trade union of misinformed presidents, but a meeting among official representatives of 33 countries of this hemisphere.
The leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro, and Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez held a fraternal meeting in this capital. During their conversation on Tuesday, the two leaders remembered moments of previous meetings, Cuba’s nightly TV news program reported. Some of Chavez´ relatives also were present at the meeting.
