The Candidate for Change

no-playing-2
Silvio was accompanied home with shouts of joy after the meeting to nominate the delegate from his district. He only received 15 out of a total of 120 votes, but his was the victory of the ant that manages to dig into the wall, the triumph of a small peep that can be heard over the din. Even though they had brought people not even on the voters list into the Punta Brava municipality, the official candidate enjoyed only 45 hands raised in his favor. Abstaining was how 50% of the crowd expressed their dissent – or indifference – to an election process with very little influence on real life.

I remember when Silvio Benítez spoke for the first time to introduce himself at the People’s Power elections in his district. Not even his closest friends cherished the hope that he would be nominated, or at least manage to get someone – outside his family – to publicly propose his name. The frustration, a priori, the reluctance to get our hopes up, has played too large a part in our lives. Thus, we feel defeated before even planning a way to transform our country. The raft sailing the sea, or complicit silence, remain the most common strategies for solving each individual’s problems, given that the national “problem” seems permanent.

That night in Punta Brava, however, the soap opera was less of a draw than the worn-out machinery of choosing “the best and most capable.” Curiosity filled the streets and sidewalks with people wanting to know if “the candidate of change” had managed to win. Silvio had promised them a different program, one marked not by ideology but by citizen management. Even though he did not succeed in getting his name on the list of the more than 15 thousand delegates from around the country, at least half the electors in his area felt compelled to abstain. Not daring to vote for him, many of his neighbors stuffed their hands in their pockets, stroked the heads of their children, or held their cigarette in front of their lips when they called for a show of hands. His victory was in all those folded arms, all those mouths that didn’t venture to mention his name, but that did not reject him.

  1. That is why yoani’s blog is just awaste of the internet space and ot will only attract the “awards” from the far right and “democratic capitalist” media which only delivers the brainwashing info, not the facts.

    Just come clean, grab the arms if you have cojones, like Fidel does, and go face him. There’s no other way.

    Or, go back to your ordinary ways in usa, Spain, France, wherever, be silent and enjoy what you have. Cuba is behind you. The new life is in front.

    Make a pick. But whichever it is, be honest about it and do not hide behind some moralistic tirades which only make you look quite bad.

    Really, really bad.

  2. Just keep in mind, everyone, that the capitalism came to power through the bloody armed revolutions. That discredits everything the anticastristas can and do say against Fidel and the co. And, as if that weren’t enough, the anticastristas discredit themselves further by preaching some high moral ground while the blood of the innocent people, many of them Cubans (the planes blown up, the armed invasions in Cuba, killed Cubans abroad, just because they were Cubans, etc.) is actually dripping off their hands.

    But wait, there’s more!!!

    Anticastristas also talk about “democracy”, yet the anticastristas in usa, for example, support and finance armed thugs who they want to send “back” to Cuba to start the revolution…Democracy is opposed to armed revolutions. Democracy means fight by peaceful means to change the system for the better, not to replace it with something else.

    And I am only getting started…

    If anticastristas were for emocracy, how come they never talk about the crimes done to the Cuban people in general, not just those few “dissidents” here and there? How come they never criticise those terrorists among them? Never distance themselves from the same methods they use yet complain about when Fidel raises his hand?

    Because in failing to do so, they simply justify whatever Fidel does. Because he is defending his country from the enemies external and internal. And in doing so, he is justified to do whatever necessary to protect the homeland. In that he is no different to any other president in the world.

    Au contraire, mon amis. He is doing the right thing. Becaused anticastristas are deeply soaked with the hipocrisy which discredits them whenever they say something against the Cuba and the government in Cuba.

    If one fights for the universal human rights, then one MUST raise it’s voice against every perpetrator, not just one side. As soon as you take sides, you are no longer “objective”. You are no longer truthful. You are simply ramping up for one side, whatever the cost. And thus you discredit yourself form “universal” human rights debate.

    Julio, Sigmund, Albert, etc, Why are you allowing Walter Lippmann to lead you around like children?
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Dear Simba…….. well, if you read my comments you will find that after taking the thug comment as motive I always turn my answer into a denounce of some of castrofascism crimes….. I have been making the same in Spanish across the web for years and always, always the foolish brigade ended retiring its thugs of the site for good…….. it didn’t happen because I am special or talented but because after days or month of trying to delete the messages we writes they understand that their tactic do not works and has a counter effect that cause an expansion of the information about regimen’s crimes and failures and contributing to spread information that dismantles all justifications and false reason castrofascism has assembled all this years…… the worst enemy of tyrannies is information…. to you it seems I follow the game of the thug…. to me he serves to send to the readers (millions) the information much of them do not have.
    The idea is put our information to work against the thugs lies…….. it is easy…… the thug’s lies are easy to demonstrate. In most cases thugs just writes ideological crap that readers easily identify as gibberish….. to oppose truly information with proves on this gibberish is practically an abuse and the thug (and its superiors) loses the patient and ends repeating same and same slogan or just old slogans…. they do that because they have to show to their superiors they are still convinced of the ideological crap they writes despite their counterpart in cyber (us) easily dismantles or rebates this crap making the readers more informed and more aware about regimen’s truly nature…. you self are a sample of this effect…. I remember you wrote somewhere that you were a reader for many time but when you decided to become a writer you did it convinced about regimen criminal nature.
    If you read my comments again you will find that comment #30 denounces the frauds in the fake voting castrofascism pretends present to the world as elections, #31 denounces castrofascism as criminal, #32 dismantle a lie of the thug by using the own castrofascist constitution and shows this constitution as discriminatory and elitist, #33 dismantles another lie of the thug and shows the huge difference of procedures between an exile organization that castrofascism present as criminal and the regimen real criminal deeds in last weeks, #61 shows the fraud of statistic and fake elections in Cuba, #62 shows the ridiculous way the indoctrinated mind of the thug works and explain to the readers the effects of indoctrination, #63 shows the terrorist nature of castrofascism….. and so on you always will find in my comment, “answering” thugs barking, a message that thugs can’t kill…… yes, they can’t kill those messages and the best prove that they can’t kill them is that they does not answer those comment. The better effect of this tactic is that thugs become monothematic….. if you read all answers of the thug to my comment you will find that he grabbed the Alfa thing as a hot nail and their last comment has to do with this thing ….. in this way thug has lost its argumentation capacity.
    By other side, thugs presence and controversy have a healthy effect for the site…… if you see closely you will find that the amount of comment increased, to the double I believe….. well, it happens in all site the thugs appears…… this curios effect place the foolish brigade in a hard situation….. they want to discredit the image of Yoani and all other freedom fighters in Cuba but they end in defensive mode trying to hide or cover castrofascim criminal history in front of an increasing amount of people and readers that makes their effort futile…… the increasing of comments in this site causes also the increment of international protection that Yoani and other fighter gets by the acknowledge about their lives and histories the public opinion earns.

    Sigmund:
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    All accusations you pretend me to back are lies created and propagated by castrofascism and you can be sure I will not back any lie of castrofascism….. the world never accepted those lies simply because castrofascism can not present proves of them…… anyway for the readers is not important what I back or not but know the truth about castrofascism crimes….. do you believe that by trying to link me to some fictitious crimes you will get the readers assume what I write is not true????…. don’t be silly thug, the readers can read in the world newspapers and see in TV and Internet what I write here…. the times when castrofascism could kill, beat, torture and repress in the shadows of disinformation are gone…. nowadays the Cuban people self has become the journalist, the denouncer, the graphic prosecutor and publisher of regimen’s crimes…. I am only a repeater your intents of killing me as massager are futile….. why not you try to argument on my comments instead?????……. Ahhhh!!!!….. you can’t!!!!!…… you can only do as your criminal regimen taught you: to kill…… a cyber- kill but a kill anyway.

  5. lets not forget che’s achivements:

    Not one economic policy that worked.
    Not one agricultural project that worked
    Not one manufacturing project that worked
    Not one “armed intervention” that succeded
    The many cubans executed in the “field of battle”
    The many cubans executed in La Cabana
    The many widows he created …
    The many orphans he created …
    The dissolution of the cuban judicial system

  6. … the face of che also appears in condoms … talk about comercial product & advertisment …
    What is it that the present regime “hacks” in their stores ? che pictures & all related garbage …

  7. Pineiro Losada. I have been enjoying your excellent dialectic approach to the Cuban situation; it does not cease to amaze me the extraordinary amount of information you display, either you are a very educated person, very old or someone is supplying you with a lot of data. I am going to call your bluff, you asked if cubans condemn acts of terrorism againts Cuba and its citizens, I do. Now, here in the States there is a judicial system that judge these matters based on laws promulgated in this country and that maybe are not perfect but are our laws, and no more nor less that the ones promulgated in Cuba which allows the government to consider a criminal anyone who opposes the regime or “present syntoms” that could convert him into a criminal. This last characteristic reminds me of my classes of Criminology in the Old University of Habana where we learned and discussed the theories of Lombroso (I know you know about these theories, discarded many, many years ago) So, here you go a cuban that agrees with you in regards to the terrorism question; now regarding the Ladies in White, here you dissapoint me, all your “brilliant points” become moot when you defend the treatment given to these ladies. The fact is that they were pushed, beaten and forcefully placed in the “air conditioned van” against their will so even accepting your “truth” that these ladies were “financed” by the US, this does not condone the horrible treatment they were submitted to.Before you tell about all the women in Latin America that have suffered beatings and bad treatments by all the bad goverments in our countries let me tell you that I opposed those treatment them like I oppose the treatment of the Cuban ladies now. In our previous conversation, a few days ago, you mention that you were proficient not only in English, but also in Spanish and Portuguese, so I am taking the liberty of sending you some Versos Sencillos of Jose Marti, Apostol of our Independence, and someone very frequently used by the Cuban government to justify their ideas. Here it goes: De Mujer? Pues puede ser-Que mueras de su mordida;-Pero no empanes tu vida-Diciendo Mal de Mujer. I hope women in your family never have to suffer what these ladies have gone through from any government no matter what ideology they represent. Always my respects.

  8. Ok Losada I am back

    “The de facto conditions in the US/UK make them much more like an oligarchy than a democracy. You can ask literally any working class person in the US (aside from the fanatic right-wingers, who are a minority) if they feel like they count at all in the political process and they will let you know how far this is from the truth.”

    Again here we go again with the comparison with US.

    I have voted in the US and I have thing that people that vote and they are normal people working class people all kind of people. In fact I will hard press to pick one in the crow of people who is independently wealthy. The reality is that the great majority in this country is the middle class and if someone wants to get elected in this country it needs to get the vote of that majority. So neither the rich or super rich even with all their money can sway an election. Example. Ross Perot.

    I am not sure what you are talking about on the above statement. Who do you think elected Barack Obama to the presidency in this country? Did it happen magically? Was this right wingers minority you talk about who elected Obama? You sure have multiple ways of spinning tales.

    Now talking about considering the US an oligarchy or a goverment by a small elite group. Wow I think you hit the nail. What you accuse the US and UK of doing is exactly what the Cuban regime does! The Cuban regime could be classify as an Oligarchy. It matches exactly that definition! Congratulation! I am sure I can find and show you a list of all the people in the central committee in Cuba and I will be able to show that all of them or mostly all of them have been in that or similar position for 50 years. That is an Oligarchy!

    Cuba, on the other hand, grants more rights to its citizens, and strives to eliminate class differences, rather than revel in the existence of stark class differences, as the US does.
    So are you saying that there is or there is not class difference in Cuba? By any chance do you know that some Cubans living in Cuba are millionaires?

    Sorry, but we can compare the capitalist dictatorships in Latin America during the latter half of the 20th century against Cuba — where tens of thousands were disappeared, many more tortured, entire governments seized by brutal regimes that are well-documented and (in many cases) prosecuted either domestically or in courts of international law (like Pinochet). And, it is also well-documented that these capitalist dictatorships only existed with the help of the US Government.

    I am against any dictatorship be capitalist or not. If a government like is the case in Cuba has not been elected democratically with opposing parties them their government is not legitimate. Because there is no way you can convince anyone that the majority are really voting for them for real. An election ballot that contains only one candidate is no election.

    The facts of capitalist economics are the migrations go from poor countries to rich countries. That’s just a fact of life in a capitalist world. You know damn well that many Cubans do not want to leave Cuba but they do want the dollars and they attempt to leave to make money and return.

    It is possible that some Cubans that migrate are economic migrants but I can easily show it is a very very small minority. My argument is the following. You will agree that the biggest concentration of Cubans outside of Cuba is in Miami.
    Have you who live in Miami see any manifestation of support towards the Cuban regime over there? Any?

    I rest my case.

    The majority except for a few isolated cases is political immigration!

    I am feeling that Simba on 87 is right it is a waste of time to argue with you on anything.

  9. ASSOCIATED PRESS: Obama calls on Cuba to respect its people’s rights

    WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is calling on the Cuban government to respect the rights of its people.

    In a statement Wednesday, Obama cited the recent jailhouse death of a dissident on a hunger strike, uniformed Cuban security agents blocking an opposition march by women demanding the released of jailed loved ones and harassment of those who speak out for their fellow Cubans.

    The president called the events “deeply disturbing” and said they show that, instead of entering a new era, Cuban authorities continue to respond to the aspirations of its people with a clenched fist.

  10. Julio, Sigmund, Albert, etc, Why are you allowing Walter Lippmann to lead you around like children? All of you are allowing him to take over this blog of Yoani’s. He talks little about Cuban politics, but lots about most other countries all over the world. He is leading you astray, away from Yoani’s topics of Cuba, and leading you in topics he is more familiar with than each of you. He is a master of obfuscation. Ignore him completely. There is no need to participate in his nonsense.

  11. Julio:

    What if I tell you this 1.3 billion Chinese are pretty much on the same situation as Cubans? So none of them are really giving their opinion but the opinion we listen as something coming from them is the opinion of a few in power?

    Of course, how can you go wrong?

    If people agree with your narrow viewpoint, that’s just natural.
    If people have a different opinion than you, it’s because they are brainwashed or lying or whatever.

    Please. No one can argue with the numbers in Latin America. Hundreds of millions of people have voiced their opinions at the ballot box and they overwhelmingly support the Bolivarian Revolution and the 21st-Century Socialist Revolution. Meanwhile, the right-wing in Latin America is being chased around the world, fleeing from prosecution for crimes against humanity.

    The momentum is on our side. We’re winning. Even in Miami, the old-timers and fanatics are being rejected by their children and grand-children, who support an end to the blockade and free travel to Cuba.

    Viva la revolución socialista!

  12. Sigmund:

    I never supported any terrorist group in the world but you does, you openly support castrofascism that is the bigger terrorist group in the world right now, with thousands of assassinations in its history….

    You write a lot of words but end up saying nothing.

    The questions are very simple:
    – Do you reject Alpha 66 and support their arrest on terrorism charges?
    – Do you reject the F-4 Commandos and support their arrest on terrorism charges?
    – Do you reject Luis Posada Carriles and support his arrest on terrorism charges?
    – Do you reject Orlando Bosch and support his arrest on terrorism charges?
    – Do you acknowledge that these individuals and groups (and many more) have terrorized Cuban civilians in service of the same agenda that you have?

    It’s really easy, Sigmund. Yes or no.

  13. Never mind that this efforts were clandestine & in violation of the particular country’s established goverment. I am sure the “end justifies the means”.

    Haha.. it is pretty hard to find defenders of the capitalist military dictatorships set up by the Latin American oligarchs and their friends in the CIA.

    You might have noticed but the people Che was fighting against are currently on the run around the world, trying to escape prosecution for war crimes and crimes against humanity.

    Meanwhile, Che is a celebrated hero all over the world … everywhere except Miami nursing homes and the Pentagon.

    Sorry, Albert. No one supports the capitalist dictatorships that you support. You don’t see people walking around with a Pinochet t-shirt but hundreds of millions of people support the memory of Che Guevara.

    Sorry, try again.

  14. Pingback: Tweets that mention Generation Y » The Candidate for Change -- Topsy.com

  15. If memory serves me right there werer more than a few people executed in the name of the cuban rebolution, no due process … just a signature on the paperwork: CHE.
    Perhaps I am going senile but I seem to remember that in the present cuban constitution there is a provision & promise of solidarian aid in the “struggle” any country (specially latin american) in its quest for socialism.
    But because of senility & faulty memory I have trouble remembering the results of incursions (solidarity?)in Angola, Central America & South America as well as Algeria.
    More than a few deaths … cuban deaths hand in hand w/the failure of each “effort in solidarity”.
    Never mind that this efforts were clandestine & in violation of the particular country’s established goverment.
    I am sure the “end justifies the means”.
    Never mind the most notorious failure (che’s) which ended in the EXECUTION of an invading enemy combatant, from another country in a non declared war.
    In other words:
    perhaps the goverment of Bolivia EXECUTED a non military, predominantly non bolivian armed group, with intentions of carring armed hostilities in an effort to overthrow a goverment means nothing … unless it happens to “that other country.
    Perhaps the idea that said group was supported by the present cuban regime has no bearing; training, weapons, intelligence, background support, communications …
    Or the idea that once captured, che was executed following orders from the legitimate president of Bolivia (at the time).
    But yet … che is made a heroe for invading countries & waging undeclared an armed struggles.
    This che fellow, caused the death of many a cuban in every rebolution he try to start, more widows were created by him than any other cuban rebolutionary.
    But what the heck …

    Support for Terrorism on Generacion Y
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Well, only thing I can say in my defense is that I’ve never sat and talked with members of Alfa 66 but you did…….. I never supported any terrorist group in the world but you does, you openly support castrofascism that is the bigger terrorist group in the world right now, with thousands of assassinations in its history….. so you are right, there era people that support terrorism on GY and you are one of them not me.
    Last week this terrorist regimen that you support deserved and got the condemn of the entire world for it criminal repression of a group of defenseless old women, this terrorist regimen you support is right now being condemned by worlds personalities for the assassination of Orlando Zapata…….. do you want to sign to condemn castrofascism crimes?????……. then sign here together with famous artists, films makers, Nobel Prize winners, Oscar Prize winners, politicians, writers of international recognition, communists like Ana Belen and Victor Manuel (!!!!), actives castrofascism supporters, ex-communists, etc…… the world is taking distance of castrofascism….. it stinker….. this is your opportunity of get clean….. sign the document…… by the way, I have never in my life seen so high repulse raised on Miami’s exile groups….. it is maybe the actions of those groups are not so criminal as castrofascism pretends…. We are used to see how castrofascism try to discredit its enemies and in much cases fabricates false accusations and false crimes to kill the messenger………. There is no site to sign to condemn Alfa supposed crimes, and those accusations are even not proven but castrofascism crimes are proven and well known….. sign the condemn thug and earn a bit of morality:

    Dirty agent, I am tired of explaining things in detail to the members of your foolish brigade……. better you make a effort and try to understand what’s writing here….. don’t let your dyslexia interfere with your mission.

  18. Support for Terrorism on Generacion Y

    Look closely what is written and see the truth about the “peaceful Cuban exile community” … when I ask “Sigmund” to renounce specific perpetrators of terrorism, he refuses to do so. He claims they are “small groups” which may or may not be true but they have certainly KILLED and MAIMED a LARGE number of Cuban civilians.

    The only other thing he says is how ineffective peaceful protest is.

    So, there you go. Perhaps this website should be monitored by law enforcement? Perhaps it already is? Perhaps we have some folks on here who have supported terrorists financially? Perhaps we have some folks on here who have given material aid to terrorist filth who would bomb, indiscriminately, men, women and children?

    What more needs to be said? You see the criminal element who are here.

    Alright, so then, do you denounce Alpha 66, the F-4 Commandos……….
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Those are very small groups of cubans that decided to fight castrofascism in the same way castrofascism fights the cuban people……. I believe in peaceful fight like Brothers to rescue did….. but they were killed by castro air force……. I believe in peaceful fight like Zapata did….. but castro killed him too….. I believe in Ladies in White peaceful fight…… but castro gave them a beaten and sent some of them to the hospital.

  19. Losada
    I do not have a lot of time now in the morning but I will get back to this later

    “Come on — shall we start with the 1.3 billion Chinese ” Wow that’s a nice one!

    What if I tell you this 1.3 billion Chinese are pretty much on the same situation as Cubans? So none of them are really giving their opinion but the opinion we listen as something coming from them is the opinion of a few in power?

    I guess that will invalidate your argument. I give you that China is a little closer to democracy than Cuba. Still people are repress and place in prison for thinking different and web sites are restricted specially those that are critical to the system. That is not the behavior of plurality.

    If you are to encompass all opinions you must have people in Cuba that have different opinions than the regime. There is many with different opinion than the regime. So what the Cuban regime tries to passed as unanimous vote on them is not so.

    Will continue later …

  20. And Fraud – who is this elected official you repeatedly referred to?
    “this new elected official will suffer same process”

  21. #56 Yobbo says “I did a similar line a while back. 20 years ago.
    You see Losada things have not change a bit.”

    Well you certainly haven’t – still stuck in the mental museum that you and your ilk visit daily.

  22. …I am puzzled … the present cuban constitution addresses the freedom of speech w/article #53.
    The freedom of assembly w/article# 54 & … but the “freedoms” are limited by the rule of law that applies on article #62.
    With the new reforms, the “state” is irrevocably communist, (single party)& all the “freedoms” are conditional to wheather they are exercised while not voicing any disagreement if the law is broken by expressed disagrement this will be reason for accusation thru to ludgement & applicable penalties of law.
    The law then entitles the citizen to “defence” however: once “accused” there is no provision for innocent till proven guilty.
    This small point added to many other points in daily life for cubans in cuba looks like an oligarchy.
    By definition, oligarchy: “is the power which a few citizens of state have usurped which ought by the constitution to reside in the people”
    The most simplistic difference between democracy & an oligarchy is than in democracy there is an actual competition for power.
    In an oligarchy the power is already in the hands of the few, the elite.
    In the case of present cuba, with a constitution not having a balance of power, not having check & balances within its functions and least of all accountability … what is the result?
    As I said before, there are only “artificial devices” in the present constitution with which the regime CREATES its own legitimacy supporting it with the years of indoctrination (compulsatory brain washing from school up) to the mayority of its citizens.
    To prove this wrong the simple matter would be to have true free election, monitored by the UN or anyone world organization … if the present regime is not an oligarchy but a “participatory democracy, there will be no problem right?

    Bolivian army adopts Cuba’s revolutionary slogan
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Not only the slogan adopted but the failed ideology and the failed and treacherous strategy of castrofascism….. imperialism should be applauding because the tryst Cuban history repeats in South America right now. Tell me how can fight the Cuban dictatorship against the imperialism and neocolonialism and make reality all those obsoletes slogans while at same time delivers the most of the national richness and natural resources to same empire it says fighting on ????…… Maybe you do not know that there is not major collaborator of the “imperialism” than castro brothers, they have destroyed all, absolutely all Cubans industries and impoverished Cuba in such way that the “imperialism” only had to work a little to build up in its own territory all destroyed Cuban industries. Not happy with this alienation of the national industries the tyranny delivered all national natural resources to the international capital mainly from Canada and Spain….. 20% of Cuba’s population was delivered to the “imperialism” in one of the most stupid alienation of human capital known in latiamerican history. For this reason the Cuban nation is today one with 2 governments…. one in the island….. the other in USA…. that minds that even the national sovereignty over the Cuban population were given to the imperialism. I believe it is time for you to find another idols……. this ones are despicable traitors to your “nobles ideals”.
    “Hasta la Victoria Siempre”….. Is it a joke???!!!…… What victory???!!!!….How can a regimen that grounds its power and control in the impoverishment of its own country to pretend a victory over the richest country in the world???!!!…… If the objectives of castro brothers wore to get a victory over the imperialism the logic indicates the first goal they had to achieve was to get strong economically!!!!…. but instead of getting economically stronger they dedicates all theirs effort to impoverish the country and destroy their industries despite a subside of 5 000 millions dollars they got annually from the USSR…. “Patria o Muerte”??? don’t be silly thug, they do not want to fight, they don’t need a victory over the imperialism but they only wanted and wants to control and dominate the Cuban people, the victory they want is over the people they harass and abuse. The victory they wants is already well guarded in banks of Gran Caiman, Panama, Spain, Chile, Switzerland and Russia….. they had also 3000 millions dollars in containers in Iraq but Us army took it.
    Patria o Mue….. bla, bla, bla……. crap for useful fools like you.

  28. Ladies in White: Who Are They Defending?

    Everyone here goes on and on about how the Ladies in White are merely defending people who were arrested for “speaking their mind.” The truth is a little bit different.

    In Manuel Piñeiro Losada’s new Generacion Y series, I present to you … WHO ARE THE LADIES IN WHITE DEFENDING?

    We begin with LORENZO ENRIQUE COPELLO CASTLE, BARBARO LEODAN SEVILLE GARCIA, JORGE LUIS MARTINEZ ISAAC:

    Put in jail for speaking their mind? Noooo
    Put in jail for saying something against Castro? Noooo

    So what ARE the charges?

    “Crimes against the Security of the State of the Popular Provincial Court of City of Havana and followed by the crimes of ACTS OF TERRORISM and CARRYING and ILLEGAL POSSESSION OF ARMS and EXPLOSIVES.”

    These folks hijacked a boat called the Baragua: “LORENZO ENRIQUE COPELLO CASTLE placed the firearm that he carried to the head [of the shipworker], insisting that he obey him, while the other codefendant managed to penetrate [the ship] and intimidated with a sharp instrument that IE had put in the abdomen of the helmsman, forcing both sailors to accede, since they were in fear of the danger to be injured and to even lose their lives.”

    One hundred and nine (109) French tourists were on board the boat when it was hijacked by these criminals.

    The truth about the “Ladies in White” … brought to you be Generacion Y … stay tuned for more explanations of the criminals and terrorists that the “Ladies in White” are defending … and why Cubans might be a LITTLE upset with them …

    The facts of capitalist economics are the migrations go from poor countries to rich countries. That’s just a fact of life in a capitalist world. You know damn well that many Cubans do not want to leave Cuba but they do want the dollars and they attempt to leave to make money and return.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Putting aside the fact that you don’t know that capitalism is the only economical system that exists in this world since the slavery passed to better live, we can then start explaining to you that there is no country in the world where capitalism has developed properly that experiments emigration in same way that other countries where capitalism has been abused, I mind, countries like Mexico, Salvador, Haiti, etc…….. countries like Chile, Panama, Costa Rica, Bahamas, etc; does not see its citizens emigrate because those countries handled capitalism in a better way.
    Cuba’s case is different, Cuba’s emigration is political in 90%….. it is easy to demonstrate when you compare the numbers after and before 1959…… before 1959 Cubans did not emigrate and Cuba one of the few countries in Latin America that received tens of thousands immigrants yearly. Immigrants from Spain, Italy, USA, Dominican Republic, Venezuela, Puerto Rico, Haiti and Jamaica used to emigrate to Cuba…… today not a single person in the world wants to immigrate to Cuba but are Cubans who left Cuba by millions…. the cause is political of course because only political causes has affected Cuba’s life condition in the last 50 years.

  30. it is the whole world, little thug, the whole world is supporting them and condemning castrofascism

    That is simply not true. Even the group that the Ladies in White model themselves after, las Madres de la Plaza de Mayo, have repeatedly condemned this phony association and called the Ladies in White a “symbol of death” and “supporters of US terrorism.” The “Ladies in White” are rejected by all of Cuba’s neighbors and countries all over the world.

    Now, if you want to talk about the “whole world” … we can talk about 20 years of United Nations support for Cuba, when EVERY SINGLE YEAR, there is a resolution passed against the US blockade against Cuba, supported by EVERY SINGLE COUNTRY IN THE WORLD except for the United States and Israel. Now, *that’s* the whole world.

    You are confused again, Sigmund.

  31. Sigmund:

    Of course I do not support terrorism against any country

    Alright, so then, do you denounce Alpha 66, the F-4 Commandos and the other groups who openly brag about committing terrorism against Cuba?

    Do you denounce Luis Posada Carriles as a terrorist scumbag who should be in prison, since he has also openly admitted that he has carried out terrorist acts against Cuba?

    Do you denounce Orlando Bosch for the same reasons?

    Finally, do you denounce the terrorist actions taken by the CIA against Cuba?

    It is very easy to say “of course I don’t support terrorism” … but now let’s get specific. Every group or individual I’ve mentioned above are well-documented terrorists. Do you denounce them as enemies of the Cuban people?

    As for the “terrorism of castrofascism” (?- completely nonsensical … I think most fascists would be quite angry with you for associating them with a socialist, who the fascists put to death in the concentration camps along with the Jews) … I have no idea what you’re talking about. A government that convicts individuals in a court of law are not “terrorists” … you may disagree with the decision, but that is not “terrorism” by anyone’s definition.

    “Ladies in White” and the Bush Administration: the best of friends

    While US President George Bush was rolling back international human rights to 19th-century standards, his wife, Barbara, was doing her own work to fight human rights by supporting the counter-revolutionary “Ladies in White”
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    To be couter-revolutionary is a honor degree because it means you are against castrofascism terror….. did you know that????
    By other way…… castro was raised to power with USA help……. why then it is a bad thing Ladies in White gets support (moral or of other kind) from US gov.???
    But is not only US gov who support the valiant and high estimated Ladies in White…… it is the whole world, little thug, the whole world is supporting them and condemning castrofascism as it are: a bunch of assassins that repress with extreme violence to cause terror in those old ladies…….. you don’t read international press????….. of course you not…… well, it is so, the world is against castrofascism and in favor of Ladies in White.

    Sigmund: do you support terrorism against Cuba or not?
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Of course I do not support terrorism against any country, that’s why I fight castrofascism …… castrofascism raised to power by terrorism, bombing civil innocent people in the same way terrorist does today, bombing innocent movies watchers, abducting people, assaulting people, killing all people that did not liked theirs method. Once in the power castrofascism killed tens of thousands Cubans just because they did not shared their ideology, hundreds of thousands were put in jail for decades for same reason….. along those 50 years of castrofascism it has never stoping the killing and terrorizing the Cubans. Some times to make Cubans afraid of leave the country they killed some people, other times for making people afraid of fight crimes back they killed some Cubans more……. sometimes they killed children with their mothers and siblings, sometimes they killed people that raised against abuses…… torture in jails has been a common thing all this year as well as assassination of hunger strikers…… of course I am against terrorism…. that’s why I am against castrofascism……… and you???…… do you support the terrorism of castrofascism??????

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    You still have to explain yourself ……. Jesus, why me???!!!!!…….. even in spite you are a bunch of semi slaves working with the help of the best technology are you incapable of understand things without expedite explanation?????
    OK….. I going to explain it detailed…….Read……

    You are writing, inexperienced thug, for millions of people in the free world. People that has been raised in politic-ideological free and plural societies where freedom of information is as normal as walk…….. for this people it is very hard to understand why can be incarcerated a person for telling to landsman and foreign the daily live in the country….. that’s what Yoani does, to give to her readers a chronicle of Cubans daily live….. then you come, with your narrow thug mentality produced for several years indoctrination and world reality isolation and spit to the readers the ridiculous idea that castrofascism is not an information repressor because Yoani is still free!!!!!……. little thug, try for a second to abstract your deteriorated thug mind off the barbaric reality of castrofascism and make an effort to understand that Yoani does not do nothing, NOTHING, N O T H I N G that can justify to put her in jail. The readers and all free thinkers see this question in that way.
    By other side we have a lot of people that has been assassinated, incarcerated, repressed, tortured and beaten just for express their mind…… those crimes, those atrocities committed along this 50 years of fascism is what you have to explain!!!!
    DID YOU GET IT NOW!!!!!!

    ………Cuba is a participatory democracy & a revolutionary democracy ……..
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    “Cyber thug deliranticus”…… it is a new classification for the turns that takes certain mental diseases that has to do with acute lack of ethical basements.
    Of course the world is aware about the frauds that are castrofascism voting…… math doesn’t lie…….. castrofascism always offers figures of participation in voting rounding 98% and always offers figures of pro regimen vote rounding 99%……. all this since the very beginning of dictatorship…… by other side we have 30% of the Cuban population emigrated risking their lives in most cases ……. something does not match…… I don’t know if our thug get it but I am sure everybody else get it and that is what matters. So maths shows there is no democracy or participation in castrofascism but fraud, pure and unmoral fraud.
    In addition the own castrofascist constitution says that castrofascism is a communist regimen and pursues the construction of socialism and communism, by studding communism we knows that the first (and only) phase of communism construction is the so called Proletariat dictatorship……. and all us of Cuban origin have study this crap for years in a mandatory way….. so, dear thug, who’s right????…… Maths and castrofascism’s constitution or you????
    Be careful with your answer…… your capo-thugs are watching you!!!!

  36. Bolivian army adopts Cuba’s revolutionary slogan

    Bolivia’s army has begun using the revolutionary motto “Fatherland or death, we shall overcome!”, angering some conservative former generals.

    President Evo Morales introduced the slogan, which was popularised by Fidel Castro and Che Guevara – the leaders of the Cuban communist revolution.

    Viva la revolución bolivariana! We have the momentum! Venceremos!

  37. Take a good look at this line. This is the never ending story of the Cuban people running away from the Castro regime! I did a similar line a while back. 20 years ago.

    Yawn, a flawed and oft-repeated argument that goes nowhere.

    The facts of capitalist economics are the migrations go from poor countries to rich countries. That’s just a fact of life in a capitalist world. You know damn well that many Cubans do not want to leave Cuba but they do want the dollars and they attempt to leave to make money and return.

    Thousands of Mexicans risk their life every day to enter the US — is that an overall indictment of capitalism?

    And, in fact, many Latin Americans strive to go to Cuba — for medical school, for the other excellent academic institutions they have there, etc.

    Regardless, as long as there is a currency exchange, and a person can work one hour on one side of a border for much less than working one hour on the other side of a border, there will be economically-motivated migrations. It happens from all kinds of countries around the US, it happens in Europe from poor countries to rich countries and it happens in Asia.

    Keep trying, Julio. Maybe you’ll find a convincing argument but … don’t count on it.

    By the way, “viva la revolución bolivariana!” probably can’t be described as trivial, considering the tens of millions of people who had that in mind at the ballot box all over Latin America over the past decade. The Bolivarian Revolution is growing stronger and stronger every day, while the Latin American oligarchies are perceived as the shame of the region as more and more people learn about what those oligarchies did. Your kind is on its way out… the future belongs to the 21st-Century Socialist movement.

  38. Julio:

    Are you not using the same methods you accused others in applying on you?

    Considering that I have been mostly patient with the non-stop name-calling and complete lack of interest in discussion here, I think I deserve a little dig — plus, it’s funny, instead of so mean-spirited. Regardless, that’s the most time I’ll spend defending myself on this issue.

    So you are saying that Cuba is a democracy but not what we understand by democracy and what the majority of the world understand by democracy.

    I think your own self-centric point-of-view is misleading you. The “majority” of the world? Come on — shall we start with the 1.3 billion Chinese and move on from there? You may be right that the majority of people in colonial countries have a narrow-minded view of what democracy is, even though many of them can parse the difference between liberal democracy and participatory democracy or revolutionary democracy … but they certainly do not make up “the majority of the world.”

    My definition of democracy includes the participation of everyone independent of what they believe. Either you be extreme right or left or whatever you have the right to participate in democracy. Your definition of democracy is that all the ones that support the Castro regime can participate all the ones that oppose it can not participate.

    Your comparison is flawed. In the first case, you state that democracy is defined by the rights they are granted. In the case of Cuba, you state that the de facto result (or, your interpretation of the de facto result) is how a democracy should be judged. In the case of both liberal democracies and Cuba, all citizens are granted the RIGHT to participate. However, if you want to judge the countries by the de facto result, you will have a hard time convincing anyone that the US/UK/etc are democracies. The de facto conditions in the US/UK make them much more like an oligarchy than a democracy. You can ask literally any working class person in the US (aside from the fanatic right-wingers, who are a minority) if they feel like they count at all in the political process and they will let you know how far this is from the truth.

    Cuba, on the other hand, grants more rights to its citizens, and strives to eliminate class differences, rather than revel in the existence of stark class differences, as the US does.

    I know people that have lost their right to education for expressing views contraries to the regime. I know of people who are denied to travel outside Cuba for speaking their mind. I know of people who are in prison for expressing their opposition to the regime. I know of people who may have lost their lives for opposing the regime.

    I can provide you examples of all of these cases in the United States, as well. Does that make it a totalitarian regime? Sorry, but we can compare the capitalist dictatorships in Latin America during the latter half of the 20th century against Cuba — where tens of thousands were disappeared, many more tortured, entire governments seized by brutal regimes that are well-documented and (in many cases) prosecuted either domestically or in courts of international law (like Pinochet). And, it is also well-documented that these capitalist dictatorships only existed with the help of the US Government. US foreign policy combined with, domestically, the US Government’s program of COINTELPRO and the illegal and violent repression of the labor union movement, black people and the indigenous population make the Cuban Revolution look like a bunch of pacifists. So, I don’t think you have much to go on there.

    Sorry, Julio. You have to do better than that.

  39. You know what I think would be really cool? A Cuban version of American Idol — staged in Havana, but with contestants selected from throughout the island via auditions. I would LOVE to see that. Can you imagine the frenzy? Maybe the winner could have a guaranteed pass to leave the island if he or she so choosed — to develop a professional career. The possibilities are endless.

  40. M. piñeiro losadA,

    “I thought Cuban-American men were supposed to have some machismo. I can’t believe they are so scared of unarmed women. Do you wake up in the middle of the night, scared from your nightmare that an unarmed woman comes over to you and asks you to get on an air-conditioned bus so they can take you home? OoooooOOOoooh! SCARY, HUH?”

    PEOPLE HERE CAN MAKE THEIR OWN INTERPRETATION ON MY STATEMENT. AS FAR AS YOU ARE CONCERNED “REVOLUTIONARY RAT”, KEEP TRYING TO TWIST THINGS AROUND BECAUSE WHEN YOU DO THAT IT SHOWS YOUR AIM MORE AND MORE, A DESPERATE ATTEMPT BY YOUR BOSSES “LA CHINA” & “THE MUMMY” TO SAVE THEIR LEGACY AND TRY TO COVER UP THEIR LIES. THE WORLD IS GETTING WISER BY THE MINUTE. TIME WILL TELL THE TRUTH, SLOWLY BUT SURELY!

  41. Hey Losada

    “viva la revolución cubana! viva la revolución bolivariana! viva fidel! viva raul!”
    you forgot Chavez! :-) since you mentioned viva la revolución bolivariana you should have also added viva chavez! :-)
    Hopefully those trivial statements should earn you a few points in your revolutionary score. :-)

  42. ASSOCIATED PRESS: Cuban attorney general out due to health reasons
    By WILL WEISSERT

    HAVANA — Cuba announced its second leadership shake-up of the month on Tuesday, replacing Attorney General Juan Escalona Reguera, who fought under Fidel and Raul Castro in the rebel army that toppled dictator Fulgencio Batista more than half a century ago.

    A brief statement read on Cuban state television said the 78-year-old Escalona Reguera was leaving his post for health reasons. He apparently remains a member of the Communist Party Central Committee.

    A lawyer by training, Escalona Reguera is one of the most veteran figures in Cuba’s revolutionary leadership, joining Raul Castro’s rebel column in eastern Cuba in 1958, and presiding over the wedding of Raul Castro and Vilma Espin the following year. He served as a brigadier general and top administrator before becoming justice minister in 1983, and head of parliament six years later.

    Escalona Reguera also acted as chief prosecutor during the controversial 1989 drug smuggling and treason case that led to the execution by firing squad of decorated war hero Gen. Arnaldo Ochoa, who had led Cuban troops on the battlefields of Angola and Ethiopia.

    Escalona Reguera’s replacement is Brig. Gen. Dario Delgado, who had been deputy attorney general.

    Tuesday’s statement said Escalona Reguera would be assigned “other duties” on the Council of State, Cuba’s highest governing body.

    On March 9, Cuba abruptly announced it had replaced another veteran revolutionary, Rogelio Acevedo, who had overseen its airlines and airports and as a teenager fought alongside the Castros and Ernesto “Che” Guevara.

    Unlike with Escalona Reguera, no reason was given for the removal of the 68-year-old Acevedo, who played a key role in expanding Cuba’s tourism industry.

    Escalona Reguera was born in the eastern city of Santiago in 1931, attended law school and became a member of the Communist Party. He said party officials balked at his decision to join the Castro brothers’ rebellion, which they initially viewed with suspicion.

    After Batista fled on New Year’s Day 1959, Raul Castro served as defense minister for nearly 50 years before taking over the presidency from Fidel — first temporarily, then permanently — in July 2006.

    Escalona Reguera helped organize the post-revolutionary trials of Batista government, military and police officials, as well as civilian supporters of his government, following the revolution. Many were convicted and executed.

    Escalona Reguera also was briefly punished himself — sent to perform manual labor — in the early 1960s, when he was accused of favoring former Communist Party members over other revolutionaries in assignments.

    Should I remind you of your post on #23 you said

    It is so sad how people here respond to facts — insults, deconstruction of who you think I am, name-calling — everything except for what goes into an authentic discussion. That is, one person presents some facts to form a conclusion and the other side presents their facts to form a conclusion.

    Now I am reading this on post #41

    I realize that the literacy rate in Miami is under 50% while the literacy rate in Cuba is above 99%, but come on.

    Are you not using the same methods you accused others in applying on you?

    It is very obvious and clear that you are!

    So you are saying that Cuba is a democracy but not what we understand by democracy and what the majority of the world understand by democracy.
    Let me be clear what you are saying is that you are using the word democracy but the meaning is different. The semantics of that word for you is alien to me and the majority here.
    My definition of democracy includes the participation of everyone independent of what they believe. Either you be extreme right or left or whatever you have the right to participate in democracy. Your definition of democracy is that all the ones that support the Castro regime can participate all the ones that oppose it can not participate.
    Obviously that is different so you should not called a democracy I am glad we have clear that up.

    Now is what they have a system that includes all? Simple answer NO.
    Why? because by its on definition it only includes those that want to be part of the system. What of those that do not like the system and that will like to modified it? what of those that want to go back to capitalism? Or anything else in between?

    Cuba’s democratic process is such that it doesn’t really matter that Fidel or Raul Castro serve as President of the Council of State of Cuba (a position that Fidel was elected to until his resignation).
    On this statement we can both argue forever. But sooner or later Castro will go away naturally I am very sure that what Cuba is now will not persist. The reason is simple. Is going against the will of the majority of the Cuban people. We will see.

    As for this

    The rights to free speech, the right to free assembly, the right to health care and education are all enshrined in the Cuban Constitution.

    You predicted correctly

    “Now, you may ARGUE that the Cuban Government does not fulfill those rights — but that’s another discussion altogether. ”

    I will do better. I will give you examples.
    I know people that have lost their right to education for expressing views contraries to the regime.
    I know of people who are denied to travel outside Cuba for speaking their mind.
    I know of people who are in prison for expressing their opposition to the regime.
    I know of people who may have lost their lives for opposing the regime.
    and so on.

    So your kind of democracy let us called revolutionary democracy is what we call totalitarian regime. A regime that does not like dissenter. A regime that punishes very harshly those people that dare to confront them and admits and accepts those that are with them.

  44. YOURE LUCKY THAT THIS IS CYBERSPACE AND NOT LIVE, BECAUSE MANY HERE WOULD LOVE TO TREAT YOU THE SAME WAY “LA CHINA” & “THE MUMMY” HAVE AND STILL TREAT “LAS DAMAS DE BLANCO”,

    Hahahaha, EVERYBODY’S a tough guy on the internet, huh? The “peaceful Cuban exile community” can’t even control themselves on an internet message board. Hahaha, thank you for proving my point … again.

    As for treating me like they treat the “Ladies in White” … what does that even mean? You want to send an unarmed woman over to escort me away?

    I thought Cuban-American men were supposed to have some machismo. I can’t believe they are so scared of unarmed women. Do you wake up in the middle of the night, scared from your nightmare that an unarmed woman comes over to you and asks you to get on an air-conditioned bus so they can take you home? OoooooOOOoooh! SCARY, HUH?
