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.

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).

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.

For a World of Rights

cuba derechos humanos

On December 10, 1948, once the World War II ended, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was signed. Therefore, the UN chose that day to celebrate human rights every year. If we make a moderately responsible research on the reality after that date, it immediately comes to light, that the United States has appropriated those two words –right and human– and turned them into political instruments to impose sanctionsandcarry out military aggressions, a practice it has maintained until the present day.
