OEA caricatura

How can it be possible for an organization that violates its very own institutional procedures to assert that a state is suffering the alteration of its democratic order? This was the latest move made by the Organization of American States (OAS) this April 3, concerning the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.

The report presented by the Secretary General of the Organization of American States (OAS), Jose Miguel Insulza, about the situation in Paraguay passed today to a critical scrutiny by the member countries from that organization. Described as biased and intentionally far from the country’s reality by some Paraguayan politicians and social organizations, the report pretends to alienate any kind of condemnation to the parliamentary coup that removed Constitutional President Fernando Lugo from office. After Insulza’s statements were analyzed by different OAS member governments, a new special regional meeting will be held, to adopt a definitive resolution about the issue.

Remarks during the public segment of the Seventh Extraordinary ALBA Summit

Raúl Castro

Remember, you have to give me the floor so that I can thank everyone, especially those who have spoken, –and that includes Daniel, because he will speak likewise, as he has done throughout his life as a revolutionary– on behalf of the people of Cuba, for all the expressions of solidarity and support for our Revolution, for our people, and I think also for the Leader of the Revolution, comrade Fidel Castro, who is listening to us directly.

Speech at the Extraordinary Summit of the Rio Group. Salvador, Bahía, Brazil

Raúl Castro

I hope that Lula, comrade and dear friend, does not protest, because I speak less than Chávez does. (Laughter) Very simply, I had planned on asking to speak so that I could thank everyone, those who have spoken and those who haven’t spoken, all those who have been in agreement, this exemplary unanimity they have shown on the subject of Cuba’s entry into the Rio Group. I don’t know what you are thinking, but for us this is a very important moment in our history.
