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 Venezuela
On Sunday, January 10, Venezuelan Vice President Aristóbulo Istúriz noted that Social Mission Bases are vital to combating poverty through their educational, health and food programs. “As in times of war, bases are used as storage centers, strategic battle and technical hubs. In regards to society, we must tackle poverty and need large storage and organizational centers, where the people’s strength is concentrated in the fight against poverty,” he stated, quoting the leader of the Bolivarian Revolution, Hugo Chávez.
The fate of a social revolution which has lasted 17 years, against the tide of the universal capitalist model and in resistance to foreign contempt and the boycott from the enemy within, hangs in the balance. Its immediate future will be decided by the balance of power resulting from the recent elections, which will signal either continuity or reversal.
I share the unanimous opinion of those who have congratulated you for your brilliant, valiant speech on the night of December 6, as soon as the election’s outcome was announced. In world history, the highest level of political glory which a revolutionary can reach, is that of the illustrious Venezuelan combatant, Liberator of America, Simón Bolívar, whose name now belongs not only to this sister country, but to all peoples of Latin America.
Message from Raúl to Maduro
We will always be with you, Army General Raúl Castro expressed, in a message sent to the President of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, following the legislative elections held this Sunday
We come with our morals, our ethics, to recognize these adverse results. We accept them, the constitution and democracy have triumphed, Nicolás Maduro Moros, President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, stated this Sunday night, having received the results of the parliamentary elections, announced by the President of the National Electoral Council (CNE), Tibisay Lucena.
The Agreement was signed in Caracas on October 30, 2000, by Comandante en Jefe Fidel Castro and the leader of the Bolivarian Revolution, Hugo Chávez, motivated by the desire to strengthen the traditional ties of friendship between the two countries.
The brutal U.S. blockade against Cuba must come to an end, Venezuela’s Ambassador to the UN, Rafael Ramírez, stated this Monday, adding that the international community will undoubtedly support this cause yet again this year. Speaking to Prensa Latina regarding the upcoming vote in the UN General Assembly on Cuba’s resolution seeking an end to the blockade, scheduled for October 27, the diplomat noted both his country’s and the world’s condemnation of the economic, commercial and financial sanctions imposed for over half a century on the island.
Venezuela is currently the source of the largest number of tourists to Cuba in the Latin American and Caribbean region, with an increase of close to 60% in 2015, according to Pablo Vázquez, representative of the Cuban Ministry of Tourism (Mintur) for this South American nation, Colombia and Central America. This places the country ninth place in the world in terms of the number of tourists to the island, he noted.
The two leaders authorized the immediate return of their respective ambassadors; agreed to an investigation of the situation on the border; will meet with ministers on Wednesday, September 23, to discuss border issues and the progressive normalization of the zone; as well as continue to hold talks facilitated by Ecuador and Uruguay, among other points.
The United States knows it has lost ground in Our America and wants it back at any cost, sparking a chain reaction to push progressive governments of the region out of power, those it considers “enemies” that should be overthrown by any means or through “soft, low intensity or violent coups,” it’s all the same.
