22 April 2018. It’s Still the Island of Freedom

________________________

It’s interesting to note that al-Jazeera ran a critical piece on the new Cuban President, an attack piece on Nicaragua, and outright lies on Hungary. By the way, it doesn’t report on Honduras, where there’s open American interference in the local politics. Although it often posts good material, this site is often a lapdog for US foreign policy… don’t forget, American troops occupy Bahrain and they could topple its ruling kleptocratic régime in a heartbeat. Have a care with this source.

The new Cuban President is its first leader born after the Revolution (1960), which means that he’s lived all his life in socialist Cuba and knows that it can survive American economic and political pressure. He’s the son of a worker and a schoolteacher, which means that he didn’t grow up in privilege. He’s worthy of our support.

14 August 2015. Two Russian Demots on Comrade Fidel’s Birthday

______________________________

The RuNet* is full of birthday greetings to Comrade Fidel. Russians still support Cuba! Hell, HH supports Cuba, NOT the USA! HH sent birthday greetings to Comrade Fidel… not to Donald Trump… not to Rush Limbaugh… not to John McCain… not to Sarah Palin… you catch my drift. You can stand with His Holiness and stand with Free Cuba and the Peoples Republics in Novorossiya… or you can stand with Potapov, Paffhausen, and Dreher, who stand for Langley’s oppression throughout the world and for the fascist junta squatting in Kiev. That IS the choice…

Che Guevara’s Daughter Urged Russian and Cuban Peoples to Unite for Struggle

______________________________

On Wednesday, Aleida Guevara, elder daughter of legendary Cuban and Latin American revolutionary Che Guevara, made a brief visit to Moscow. She spent several hours of her stay in the Russian capital in meetings with Latin American diplomats, Cuban students, teachers of the Institute of Latin American Studies of the RAN, and representatives of Russian public associations. She said, “Disunity of the peoples is very dangerous in the face of contemporary threats”. Guevara recalled her legendary father, a symbol of revolution in Cuba and in Latin America, and of Latin Americans’ struggle for independence. She quoted her father, “Unity amongst nations is the only way that we can put up resistance to a common enemy”. Guevara, a paediatrician who spent her whole life saving and assisting children, said that human civilisation is now going through an incredible period, a renewal of history. She stated, “I thank the Russian people for their warm reception and hospitality”, adding that Russians still remembered and loved her great revolutionary father. She also said that people in Cuba were unreservedly well-disposed towards Russians.

Russia Hopes that the USA may Eventually Lift Cuban Embargo


______________________________

According to Russian Ambassador to the UN Vitaly Churkin, Russia hopes that the Americans will follow their decision to ease their blockade of Cuba with other moves that’d fully lift the blockade. The UN General Assembly adopted a resolution urging Washington to give up its trade embargo, which is now in its 51st year. Recently, the USA somewhat eased the blockade. Specifically, it’s removed the restrictions concerning visits by US citizens to their relatives in Cuba, as well as allowing cash remittances. Churkin feels that the unilateral US sanctions have proved incapable of affecting the Cuban people’s choice of the model of social development, but have only served to lower the island country’s living standards.

Once again, the UN General Assembly demanded that the USA “in the shortest possible time” lift its commercial and financial embargo against Cuba. The USA started the blockade 51 years ago, and it seriously undermined the island’s economy of the island. 186 UN member states supported the resolution; three countries voted against it (the USA, Israel, and Palau), and two abstained (Micronesia, Marshall Islands). The resolution calls on the international community to refrain in future from destructive actions such as those taken by Washington against Cuba. As the resolution emphasised, these actions are contrary to all countries’ obligations under the UN Charter, and under international law.
