Dilma's Agenda

“I prefer a million critical voices
before the silence of the dictatorships.”
Dilma Rousseff

Choosing the time for a presidential visit can be an exceedingly thankless task in this so unpredictable and changeable world. When the date of the visit of a head of state is placed on the agenda, announced, and reconciled with the hosts, life commonly offers up the unexpected. The government palaces don’t control chance, nor anticipate the surprising events that strain the arrival of a dignitary. Dilma Rousseff knows this well. Her presence in Havana was coordinated for weeks and was even preceded by that of the foreign minister, Antonio de Aguiar Patriota. Everything seemed neatly tied up: a fast timeframe, efficient, protocol, focused on economic themes, ending with her boarding her flight to Haiti. But something complicated it.

Several days before the Brazilian economist and politician landed at Jose Marti Airport, a young Cuban died after a prolonged hunger strike. The official media threw itself into presenting him as a common criminal, although he had been arrested at an opposition march through the streets of Contramaestre. The radicalized discourse of power and the political temperature reached those levels where our rulers perform so well. In that context, the recently concluded Conference of the Cuban Communist Party became more an act of reaffirmation than of change, a statement of unity rather than an opening. Many who were waiting for an announcement of political transformations of great significance, realized that the event was, instead, the ultimate lost opportunity for the generation in power. One day after its closure, Raul Castro — General Secretary of the only permitted party — received Dilma Rousseff, the former guerrilla who today leads a country with diverse political forces and a highly critical press.

Dilma’s Cuban agenda includes inspecting the construction work at the Port of Mariel and the possible granting of new bank credits. Brazil is our second largest trading partner in Latin America, but it’s not just a question of resources. The Raul regime also has the urge, at this time, to be legitimized by other presidents in the region. So there will be smiles, handshakes, commitments to “eternal friendship” and photos, lots of photos. The civic activists, for their part, will attempt a meeting with the woman who was tortured and imprisoned during a military government, though there is little chance that she will receive them. Dilma Rousseff will converse with Raul Castro, she will be very close to him at exactly this delicate juncture in which chance has placed her. We hope she will not miss the opportunity and will comport herself consistent with the clamor for democracy, instead of opting for a complicit silence before a dictatorship.

Note: I will not know until Friday, February 3, whether the Cuban authorities will finally allow me to travel for the presentation of the documentary “Cuba-Honduras Connection” in Jequie, Bahia, in Brazil. Thanks in advance to all who have done something so that I might make it to Brazil. Special thanks to Senator Eduardo Suplicy, to the filmmaker Dado Galvao, to @xeniantunes, and to other Brazilian citizens.

  1. 289 prior posts makes this the BEST BLOG on PLANET EARTH. Yoani Sanchez and her BLOG will be part of CUBAS history forever. Thanks to everyone here for making this Historic BLOG possible. GOD BLESS YOU ALL.

  2. Buenas Yoanis y a todos los demas activistas y blogers en la isla:

    “La revolte contre le pére”,un libro que por su extensión no se puede leer rapidamente.

    “Esta calle es de Fidel”.??? Que significa eso?

    Fidel alimenta a la población solo hace falta gritar “esta calle es Fidel” y cuatro idioteses más que nunca nos han llevado a ninguna parte,le ronca el tallo como le dirían los jóvenes o como decían en Cuba los guajiros hace un tiempo atras.

    Mientras mas pobreza y miseria menos probable una solución pacífica.Los hermanos Castro quieren seguir chupando a los trabajadores cubanos que despues seran obligados a cantar “esta calle es de Fidel” sin nada de comer en la casa, hay que tener una resistencia tremenda o una locura temporal que no se acaba, Porqué?

    Hay que volver a lo que los cubanos-americanos añoran; los tiempos donde al menos la comida era diaria aunque no con calidad.La salud y la sanidad de la sociedad cubana es impresendible.

    Sí tenemos una sociedad enferma; hay que curarla de la mejor forma que sea posible, hay muchos tratando de encontrar la sanidad social y eso no va a ser facil.

    Sinceramente,

    Julio Gonzalez Jr.

    Muchos estan sin comer pero por una lasca de queso y jamón (muy finas)y un vaso de wachipupa ya es suficiente para esperar por el próximo acto de repudio en contra de las Damas de Blanco que pueden llegar a ser de hierro.

    Yo no lo puedo creer.La realidad es tan dura que no podemos pasarnos el día deprimidos hasta que nos molestemos. Pero algunos retirados del Minint no tienen comida suficiente en casa y entonces limpian las oficinas con el objetivo de un almuerzo mediocre y algo de comer durante la noche.

    Esa señora era Coronel del Minint y tenía cierta autoridad antes del período especial.A ese punto hemos llegado.No le dicto pautas a nadie ni quiero que todos piensen como yo, pero solo sentados todo el día vamos “encubando” una depresión peligrosa.

    Piensen como les parezca, decidan hacer lo que crean mas factible pero no se les olvide por favor que en ambos lados hay niños y viejos en esta trifulca ideológica pero no podemos ser tan guaposos ni ser tan bravucones.Los niños y ancianos necesitan mas de alimentos que de torturas.

    Esta es una trifulca económica en especial una guerra de las monedas que nadie entiende pero esta ahi muy cerca y no nos hemos dado cuenta que entre el euro, el dolar y el oro como las reservas monetarias de los países mas avanzados y los demas?: ese pudiera ser un tópico a discutir sin manipulaciones del régimen.

    Sinceramente,

    C.L.! NOW WE SEE YOUR TRUE COLORS! JE JE JE! JUST LIKE YOUR MASTERS THE CASTROFASCISTS WHO PUT THE GAYS, DISSIDENTS, WRITERS AND JEHOVAH WITNESS’ IN THE UMAP CAMPS! YOU LIKE THEM ARE PURE TRASH!

    Mauvaise Conduite or Improper Conduct is the title of a 1984 documentary film directed by Néstor Almendros and Orlando Jiménez Leal. The documentary interviews Cuban refugees to explore the Cuban government’s imprisonment of homosexuals, political dissidents, and Jehovah’s Witnesses into concentration camps under its policy of Military Units to Aid Protection. The documentary was produced with the support of French television Antenne 2 and won the Best Documentary Audience Award at the 1984 San Francisco International Lesbian and Gay Film Festival.

  4. John, Cuba Libre cannot afford Mirabar. Maybe Guanabo, but there too many poor people living in this town, so I am not sure if he will consider moving there

  5. Cuba Libre #280! Hey, you’re still here!! I thought you’d be house hunting in Miramar by now. Tell us when you’ve moved in. If you’ve got a spare room we’ll come and stay.

  6. Cuba Libre, Soopermouse – Unsoricel is a declared bisexual, ( JE JE JE as I fat lesbian I still have a chance with her) so please start calling her a faggot too. And FYI I have no obsesion with dirty underwear. Unsoricel offered to mail me her dirty underwear. Here is Unsoricel’s contact information…feel free to go over for a tea flat 2 ,37 springfield road, Leicester, leics LE2 3BB, GB phone 44.07742394232

    PS: please respond to my challenge of taking a trip to Havana into a luxurios hotel for 2 weeks that only serves breakfast and then live off with only (1 CUC a day that is still more then Cubans make). You’ve stayed in Cayo Guillermo where there are no cuban cities, just resort. You could learn more about Cuba from TV then you learn from your Cayo Guillermo stay.

  7. Cuba Libre

    Go. Back. And. Read. The. Post. To. Which. You. Are. Referring. S-L-O-W-L-Y.

    I was quoting your friend UnSoricel.

    Wow, the unbridled stupidity.

  8. Glad to see that there is no denigrating from the likes of UnSoricel, Cuba Libre and Damir.

  9. An(al)omino @273 …I think that making threats says it all about who’s who…and what are you… reverse psychology worked again… keep at it see where it gets you!!! To tell you to learn to use a computer if you really want to call yourself snitch is a waste of my time !!! you are justBS…and incompetent in that department too… So much for putting your nose where you mouth is again….the…proof from a little poof that you just denigrate since that’s what your kind does… .. From now on you get no quarter from me too for you BS and cheap skate character!

  10. 256 Anonimo,
    Whats with the obsession of your dirty underwear?? I mean we all have our preferences and we all know that “El Ciber Raton” is a faggott, and that Yoani is a sado-masochist, she keeps on begging her government keep on mistreating her. It`s all good.

  11. I think Fidel had his colon cancer because he only used Granma, so it should NOT be used as toilet paper

    John you are right, although people with mental problems ( Unsoricel, Damir )should be taken care of. The other one seems normal living the canadian hell, being oppresed here in Canada thinks he could have a better life in Cuba. He still has to respond my challenge of going into a luxurios Havana hotel for 2 weeks that only serves breakfast and then live off with only (1 CUC a day that is still more then Cubans make).

  12. Granma is a bias news source. Its a tool of the Dictatorship, used to manipulate ideas and sell Castro propaganda. Not a reliable source by any means. Best use is toilet paper or a liner for a bird cage.

    Las Damas de Blanco and Yoani are Whats happening in Cuba today.

    What happens in Cuba and how Cubans are treated is SHAMEFUL.

  13. Anonimo et al, I think the best thing to do with Unsorical is to completely ignore her, because she is completely bonkers. It’s a waste of time responding to her nonsense. I would also suggest ignoring Cuba Libre and Damir. Damir is deranged and dangerous. As for Cuba Libre, nobody could be that stupid. I’m beginning to think he’s joking with us all, just to get everybody fired up. IGNORE!

  14. Unsoricel, please stop projecting your feelings in the online environment. WTF is wrong with you and your scatology, anal sex, lesbians, dirty underwear and so on ? I thought that you will come oyu your senses. I will make your real identity, names, addresses, phone number known on ALL blogs and websites were you bother people.

  15. Humberto, Raul and the other party liders are afraid that if the mummy dies there will be an uprising at his funeral, as he nation is expect to gather ( maybe forced to go ) for his funeral. On the 21st of dec 1989, Ceausescu had the idea of organizing a huge rally to condemn the revolution that started in other cities. Well, that rally marked the begining of Ceausescu’s last 24 hours in power, cause 24 hours after that meeting both Ceausescu and his wife were prisoners.

    So, you can bet that Fidel will “live” as long Chavez is in power. When Chavez is gone, Cuba will be free as well.

  16. FINANCIAL TIMES: Cuban blogger riles with her weapon of words- By John Paul Rathbone in Havana

    Yoani Sánchez is Cuba’s best-known blogger and, for many outside the island, also its opposition’s most important voice. She is also, however, a philologist whose refusal to mangle the Spanish language is matched only by her love of 140 character tweets.

    Resolving that contradiction is one of the lesser challenges Ms Sánchez faces as an internet-based activist in a country that, by some metrics, has less internet connectivity than even Haiti.

    “I try to tweet with the brevity and elegance of classical Spanish, while only using whole words,” she jokes of herself on a recent evening in Havana.

    Such humour is characteristic of the 36-year-old, whose mordant and highly personal vignettes of Cuba’s quotidian drabness have long angered the regime – even as her writings’ literary and political merits have turned her into an international star.

    Her blog Generation Y, begun on a whim in 2007 but now visited up to 14m times a month, ranges from piquant observations about lemon shortages to the human rights implications of the visit to Havana by Brazilian president Dilma Rousseff last week. She has 200,000 followers on Twitter. Last year, Foreign Policy magazine voted her one of the world’s Top 100 Thinkers.

    Cuba’s state-run media meanwhile accuses Ms Sánchez of conducting cyberwar. Fidel Castro has called her the leader of a group of “special envoys of neo-colonialism, sent to undermine” the Castro brothers’ rule.

    Sitting in a Havana state-run restaurant with independent journalist Reinaldo Escobar, her longtime partner and collaborator, Ms Sánchez, with her slight frame and toothy grin, hardly cuts a typical figure of a counter-revolutionary agent.

    “I consider myself an independent citizen,” she says, pointing out that in Cuba’s one-party system there are “no crimes against thinking or opinion – only against the state”.

    Precise attention to language is a hallmark of her conversation. Ms Sánchez puns that Cuba’s irregular Communist party congresses are “less a parley-ment than a listening-ment: there’s not been a single “No” vote in 50 years”.

    But perhaps the greatest puzzle about her work is technology. How does social media operate in Cuba given the state’s information monopoly, only 2 per cent of people have access to the internet and sending a single Tweet can cost up to $1 – a fifth of the average weekly state wage?

    Critics say that explains why Cuba’s fragmented opposition movement is better known outside the island than inside. Even a copybook Facebook site is a government-run intranet.

    Ms Sánchez, who earns her living from a bi-weekly column in El País, the highest-circulation newspaper in Spain, says mobile phone technology, and the “echo chamber of abroad”, amplify social media’s local impact.

    “I send an SMS text to 70 people, they send to 70 more, and so on. Texts can also be uploaded directly on to the internet. It is tweeting blind, but the tweets get mentioned in news stories abroad, which are broadcast by Hispanic TV and watched by Cubans on illegal satellite dishes here. The echo chamber is crucial.”

    She writes the blog only once a week, she adds, “to let myself breathe”.

    This ingenious network works both for incoming and outgoing news. “We were the first to learn of Gaddafi’s death,” she says. “My phone was red-hot with texts.” As Etecsa, the state telephone company, has just cut phone charges, she adds her “text newspaper” may get more effective still.

    Even so, the system has limits. Ms Sánchez rolls her eyes at suggestions made by Republican party candidates campaigning in the Florida primaries last month that they wanted to reverse President Barack Obama’s loosening of travel restrictions, tighten the US embargo and promote a “Cuban spring”.

    “It is far too early for that,” she says. The Arab world “spent years integrating technology into their lives. We are still in an embryonic state”. About 10 per cent of Cubans use a mobile phone; in Tunisia, it is more than 75 per cent.

    “I’ve also learnt that the more restrictions there are, the less people have and the more subservient they become to who dispenses it – the state,” she adds. “We are a long way from the banality of internet ubiquity – although I am all for a bit more frivolity.”

    Pope Benedict XVI’s scheduled visit in March, Havana’s recent freeing of political prisoners and her own international profile help protect Ms Sánchez. Pluck and a sense of humour meanwhile seem to keep her spirits up.

    She says she was not realistically expecting Ms Rousseff to voice any human rights concerns while in Cuba – or for Havana to allow her an exit visa to visit Brazil, the 19th time permission has been denied.

    “I never want to become bitter,” says Ms Sánchez. “I tweet, I blog, I write. I wake happier than most. Everyday is a new scenario.”

    AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL: RESTRICTIONS ON FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION IN CUBA- Amnesty International Publications 2010
    STATE MONOPOLY OF THE MEDIA
    The media is a key arena in which the right to freedom of expression is exercised. It plays a
    critical role in any society, for example raising awareness of human rights and exposing
    human rights violations. The media has the potential to help shape public opinion and to
    monitor and assess the performance of those holding public office at all levels; it is an
    important tool for scrutinizing government practices in all societies no matter their political
    ideology. The absence of an independent media is a serious obstacle to the enjoyment of
    freedom of expression and the adequate review of corrupt and abusive official practices.
    Restrictions on the Cuban media are stringent and pervasive and clearly stop those in the
    country from enjoying their right to freedom of opinion and expression, including freedom to
    seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of
    frontiers.8 The state maintains a total monopoly on television, radio, the press, internet
    service providers, and other electronic means of communication.9 According to official
    figures, there are currently 723 publications (406 print and 317 digital), 88 radio stations,
    four national TV channels (two devoted to educational programming), 16 regional TV stations
    and an international TV channel. All are financed and controlled by the government.10 Three
    newspapers provide national coverage: Granma, which is the organ of the Cuban Communist
    Party, Juventud Rebelde and Trabajadores.

  21. Men are too evolved and mature for that sort of thing instead they use phrases like dicktater and offer to send their smelly underwear through the mail.

  22. Griffin… no I am not a serious person, you are right… I left that behind… and it is the biggest achievment in my little pointless life..

  23. An(al)omino, as I was saying put your NOSE and MONEY where your MOUTH so to clarify if I am the person who you actually try to slander here… You sound a lot like a girl in how anal you are and take revenge on people you do not know without discerning scrupules – Someone pointed that below just as well that you use soemone’s identity without approval… In many respects you feel a bit like Pamela that’s how I recall her style!… I didn’t take Cubanos for vengeful liars and stupid for that but there is always the exception that ‘helps’ the rule!

    Nevermind from my side.. a sour loser is a sour loser..is a sour loser!… so go for it girl if that makes you happy… !!

  24. Un Soricel,

    You are not a serious person. There is no point even attempting to discuss something with you.

    Good bye.

  25. Indeed, Cuba Libre please admire Unsoricel for her brightness. But she also wrote the following 6 years ago. We all know she is mentally unbalanced, her facebook profiel ann her neverending online rants on hundreds of other blogs are a good proof. I just hope one day somebody will take her to the laughing academy.

    We remembered the pain and the cold. The lack of any choice, empty shops,lack of electricity, fear. We remembered growing up wit it, the terror present at each step, parents begging the children to never ever tell anyone what was being talked at home. The children who did talk too much… their parent(s) would one day disappear. How can I explain to anyone who hasn’t developped his/her own consciousness under these auspices what it was like? How can I tell anyone how I felt after our revolution when the shops actually had food? How can I tell anyone about the enjoyment I felt when I could buy eggs- until a week before a luxury product, and brought them home like the most sacred thing? How can I explain to anyone the Transition- from terror to poverty? I was 14 in 1989. I grew up hard, in a highly dysfunctional environment. I learned things no child should ever learn.
    I have been out of Romania for 7 years now. But communism is still with me. I still have nightmares at night, I remember it.

  26. Anonimo.. I guess no chance for me that you would put your NOSE where you mouth was then! I wish you WAS a big fat lesbian the ones Bob Crumb draw – so my victory was even sweeter!

  27. Griffin ..Truth according to Humberto… NO contest there!! haha… I can imagine the doc he sent… done by American gringos for gringo Americanos… commie bad had nukes, old days good… Batista nice man with no luck… Castro evil lurking… Che.. silly boy who couldn’t be a doc… ahh!!

  28. Huberto,

    I just watched the documentary, “Las Torturas de Castro” …a truly horrific account of the evil Castro regime. Thank you for posting that link. I will be forwarding it to the many useful idiots I know who admire Castro.

    Truth is a powerful weapon.

  29. Cuba Libre,

    You are an idiot if you take the word of a “blogger close to the Cuban government”.

  30. Right Cuba Libre, an(al)nomino and dicktater and I’ll send you my smelly underwear are the marks of someone who has a lot of credibility, of an adolescent that is.

  31. Here’s Fidel at the latest book signing, his English is still good. Hope I’m not violating Granma copyrights by posting this:

  32. And here is but more reading for all you who still doubt the wonders Mr. Castro has accomplished as far as health care is concerned.

    Oh yes I forgot to ask, who is it that`s treating the dissidents as terrorists at Guantanamo Bay. Not the Revolutionary Government for sure. They are being treated as terrorists by the U.S. Navy. Now who is to doubt U.S. Intelligence, maybe they are terrorists.
