Someone threw a letter through the window of the principal’s office, in a nylon bag with a stone inside. Rows and rows of cramped handwriting, restless, denouncing the diversion of resources in the dining room. There was a meticulous description of the “private” storeroom where the products that never made it to the students were kept. And the huge number of servings that, each week, ended up in barrels to feed the administrator’s pigs. On eight pages it betrayed the tricks to make the numbers add up at the end of the month and even the names of those warned about possible inspections.

The anonymous person forced an urgent meeting. The surprise kitchen audit had confirmed what the incognito vigilante had said. On Thursday, a unanimous show of hands expelled those implicated in the embezzlement and new workers were appointed to their positions. From the chairs of the large space few believed that the stolen food would end up on the trays and that the students’ lunches would recover the ounces and flavors lost.

When Monday came the new kitchen staff already had their own embezzlement dynamics. They hid the sacks of beans and bottles of oil at a distant site undiscovered by the auditors. For at least three days they put the established quotas on the trays, but gradually they took away an ounce here, a gram there. The pigs in some distant sty started to grow fat again with the soup and rice so bland that many of the scholars wouldn’t eat it. Adulterating the accounts guaranteed that the embezzlement wouldn’t show up in the paperwork, while an informant – close to the principal – warned if there was going to be an inspection by the ministry. The anonymous accuser managed only that the thieves had new names and that the diversion of resources put the power in other hands.

  1. THE CASTROFASCISTS STILL HOLDING ON TO THE HOPE OF TRADING HOSTAGE ALAN GROSS AS FOR “THE CUBAN 5″ OR SHOULD I SAY “THE CUBAN 12 WHO ARE NOW 5 BECAUSE THE OTHERS RATTED ON THEM AND/OR FLED THE COUNTRY”!

    MIAMI HERALD: Cuban spy appeals his Miami conviction – Convicted spy Gerardo Hernández argues that the U.S. government broadcaster paid journalists to write negative stories about the Wasp Network. – By Juan O. Tamayo

    The five confessed that they are Cuban intelligence agents but insisted they were only monitoring radical exiles who might stage terrorist attacks on the island. Two reported on U.S. military flights out of the Florida Keys and Tampa, and the network tried repeatedly to infiltrate the Pentagon’s Miami-based Southern Command.

    All five were convicted of 23 spying-related charges. Hernandez, Ramón Labañino, Fernando González and Antonio Guerrero remain in U.S. prisons. René González finished serving his 13-year sentence in October but is now serving three years of parole somewhere in the United States.

    The habeas corpus appeal, filed earlier this year, is Hernandez’s last-ditch effort to overturn his conviction. The U.S. Supreme court already has refused to consider an appeal that the five did not get a fair trial in Miami.

    The Cuban government has maintained a long-running publicity campaign defending the “Five Heroes” and all but offered to swap them for Alan Gross, a U.S. government subcontractor serving a 15-year sentence in Havana.

  2. Medicare fraud’s Cuban connection gets the attention of Congress

    On June 20, federal prosecutors in Miami detailed charges in a scheme under which $31 million in Medicare funds were stolen and moved to Cuban banks. “This startling announcement raises serious questions about how widespread this type of activity may be, and how many Medicare dollars may be frequently diverted to other countries,” the letter stated.

  3. ONLINE PETITION: Request directed to the International Community to clarify the circumstances of the death of Oswaldo Paya and Harold Cepero

    On Sunday July 22nd 2012 Oswaldo Payá Sardiñas, founder and leader of the Christian Liberation Movement (Movimiento Cristiano Liberación), and Harold Cepero Escalante, member of this movement, lost their lifes in the Las Tunas-Bayamo road of the island of Cuba. With them in the car traveled also Ángel Francisco Carromero and Jens Aron Modig, a Spanish and Swedish citizen, respectively.
    Due to the lack of credible information from official sources that allows the families of the deceased to know the true causes of the accident that took the life of Oswaldo Payá and Harold Cepero, we request, as the respect for truth requires, as well as the duty to consider the pain caused to the victims of this unfortunate event, an investigation and inform about the actual facts involved in this event.
    According to Ofelia Acevedo, Oswaldo Payá’s widow, co-founder and current leader of the Movimiento Cristiano Liberación, the families of the two deceased dissidents are not looking for someone to blame, but for the truth. We join them in this request and demand that an international investigation is opened in order to find out the truth. Only in this way the doubts and contradictions that have produced by the death of Payá Sardiñas and Cepero Escalante from the beginning will be dissipated. We also request, that according to International Law and to the elemental duties of justice of every government in the world, that the process of investigation warrants the right of Ángel Francisco Carromero of a right to consular assistance and legal defense.

    Best regards,

  4. Did an Embezzlement Scandal Put an End to Cuba’s Internet Plans or Was it Fear of An Uprising?

    The answer seems to be that no one really knows. Two months after the big ceremony, the system was supposed to have gone on line, but that clearly did not happen, and what happened to the $70 million intended for the project?
    Theories of what went wrong range from telecommunications execs cutting corners and pocketing the money to the government worrying about the rise of a Cuban Spring, similar to that of Arab countries who used have been successfully using the internet, specifically social media, to spread news of their causes and support.
    “Secrets are over … We are facing the most powerful weapon that has ever existed, which is communication, Fidel Castro told Mexican daily news source La Jornada during an August 2010 interview.
    Some have even suggested the cable is online, but with only a selectively chosen few being permitted use.

  5. Damir

    Perhaps Granma would love to publish “Screen Shots from Dictator’s Boot Licker.”

    They could publish it in a series, doling out your insanity bit by bit.

    And I’m sure you would have absolutely no problem with the fact that no one can comment on Granma. You know, the “democracy in action” that you so bitterly complain about when your posts don’t show up here.

  6. Have never been Gloria, that was a delusion made up by you, Damir.

    I was Pamela, and for some reason cannot post under that name now.

    Pamela to Pam does not denote a lack of originality, it denotes common sense.

  7. And isn’t this amusing? The pioneers suggesting to me some “wonderful” medicines (there is no such thing in your “beautifu;” de MOCK RATSY” gulag. Your dictators are forcing you to call them what they really are: DRUGS. medicines you get in Cuba, for example nd among other countries. you don’t.) for mental problems.

    Reading their bullshift, one realises they know

    A LOT

    about those DRUGS adn their effects on mental problems.

    One cannot but wonder how.

    And the only logical answer is: for THEY ARE OBVIOUSLY CONSUMING THEM EVERY DAY

  8. Self-congratulating losers.

    Being usanians means that you are all over-uneducated. (I have to use forest gump’s language for you do not understand anything les dumb).

    If you did have some education, you would recognise a blatant copy of an antic Greek story about the leeches in teh above supposed “true account” of Cuban “reality”.

    The usanian nazists who write this rubbish for publication under the terrorist’s and traitor’s name, thought in their immense stup***y that no one would remember the story.

    After all, 2500 years have passed, right…???

    Dumbos all of you.

    Now go and keep congratulating yourselves for that st*** d **y of yours. Nothing can change it anyway. You are damned to die brainless and in delusional oblivion.

    Gloria, hiding under Pam now?

    That originality is the lack of inteligence I am talking here about.

  9. Oops, that should have read “may” have been lost for all eternity.

    Cuba Libre: Not very bright, are you? Of course the note was signed “anonymous.”

    That’s the way things must be done to protect oneself when one lives under a brutal dictator.

  10. Yet more lies from Generation Y. Every time you post an article that is another lie, you say it is an Anonymous person who said this or that, or who saw this or that. I know that if I witnessed the above lies you state, I would denounce them to the authorities on the spot personally, and not sign Anonymous. We all know what the response of the revolutionary government would be, cause they have very little tolerance for mischiefs like these.

  11. PAM, That was very funny, and all soo true. SOCIALIST regime apologist are so full of it.

  12. Damir !! CAN YOU GIVE US A LINK TO ALL THESE SCREENSHOTS! WOULD LOVE TO SEE THEM, YOU SEE I GET PUT INTO MODERATION TOO IF I PUT 2 LINKS OR TWO OF ANYTHING RESEMBLING A LINK. I ALSO GET PUT INTO MODERATION IF I USE FOUL LANGUAGE THAT KICKS IN THE SYSTEM’S PROFANITY LIMITS! THE FACT THAT YOU CAN POST SO MANY OF YOUR RANTS PROVES THAT FREEDOM OF SPEECH IS ALIVE AND WELL IN GENERATION Y!!

  13. WASHINGTON POST EDITORIAL: Getting at the truth of car crash that killed Oswaldo Payá

    Mr. Payá’s family is not satisfied. Although Mr. Payá was no longer at the forefront of the Cuban dissident movement, he was an authoritative voice for democracy, and he often received death threats, according to his daughter, Rosa Maria Payá, 23. Only weeks before, in June, Mr. Payá and his wife were driving in Havana when they were hit by another car on the rear passenger side. They suffered minor injuries, but the crash added to their anxiety and suspicions.

    On the day of Mr. Payá’s death, his family received a text message at 3:18 p.m. from friends in Madrid inquiring about reports of a car wreck. The people in Spain did not know that Mr. Payá was in the vehicle with Mr. Carromero and Mr. Modig. According to Ms. Payá, the text message says that the car was “forcefully hit and pushed off the road.” It does not say by whom. A photograph of the Hyundai after the accident shows a vehicle crushed from behind.

    The two survivors were interrogated at length by the Cuban state security apparatus; Mr. Modig acknowledged bringing about $5,000 to support Mr. Payá’s political work. Neither survivor may feel comfortable saying what happened as long as Mr. Carromero remains in a Cuban prison. But the suggestion in the text message that the car was forced off the road is sufficient to cast doubt on the official version.

    Mr. Payá’s family has called for an independent investigation of the crash, although it is not likely to get one from Mr. Castro’s police state. The two survivors might eventually have more to say, and we’ve heard there are additional text messages from the scene. We think an outside investigation could shed light on whether Mr. Payá’s inspiring torch was snuffed out by a vengeful state.

    “My father dedicated his life to fight for citizen rights for all Cubans,” Ms. Payá told us. “I am afraid that some evil force took my father’s life. But I think his passion for freedom is now alive in people. Cubans are awakening.”

    A first step toward fulfilling Mr. Payá’s promise would be to determine the truth about how he died.

  14. Screenshots of every post you make Damir? Thank goodness, for they make have been lost for all eternity!!!!

    Perhaps you could turn all of those screenshots into a book entitled “Delusions of a Lithium-Deprived Madman.”

    Or “Collection of Rantings That I Thought So Important That I Bothered To Take Screen Shots of Them, LOL.”

    Or “Screenshots of a Self-Appointed Cuba Expert Because I Vacation There.”

  15. Dear Damir,

    There are some wonderful new medicines available nowadays. Ask your doctor which ones are right for you.
    You will feel much better.

  16. And my post got deleted again?

    Long live censorship!!!!!!

    Hypocrites.

    It hurts you to read the truth, doesn’t it?

    Especially when Damir Adds a link to the huffington post own article that rains the yellow tuff over your terrorist and nazist philosophy!!!

    Bunch of jokers and losers.

    Hey, why no one is counting the Cuban sportists defecting and askin for political, or any other. asylum?

    Coz there was NOT ONE to do so?

    Despite your “predictions’ of a MASSIVE EXODUS by Cuban teams…

    Jokers no more. Just losers.

    Now go delete this post too. I am taking the screenshots of evry post I make so you will do me a favour and shot yourselves into your empty skulls.

  17. Dear deluded Cuba Liar:

    Fidel and Che were the biggest embezzlers in all of Cuba. They stole the revolution, they stole the property, freedom and future of the Cuban people. Now Raul shrinks the meager rations the people slave for, while the pigs in power grow fat.

  18. oh wow, Cuba Libre, you’re post sends chills down my spine. I think the point that Mrs Sanchez is trying to make is that there is a bigger problem then dishonesty here. In ‘civilized’ countries you wouldn’t need to steal food from others because you are paid enough to buy your own food. And if out of greed you stole it anyways, you would be easily replaced by someone who wouldn’t do such a thing. No need to resort to something so barbaric as a firing squad…. The people that commit these deeds need to earn a dignified living. They need to take pride in their work. That is impossible if you yourself are worried about how you will eat and clothes your own kin. I read Mrs Sanchez post and automatically see the desperation of the situation. People aren’t inherently evil, they are products of their environment. Mass corruption is not a disease that can be eradicated through violence and punishment, it is indicative of a system failure.

  19. great post Miss Sanchez. And this is a good example of the kind of people that Che Guevara and Fidel Castro sent to the firing squads. In other ” civilized” countries the wrong doers would be just scolded and told not to do it again. There is no excuse for anyone taking away food destined for children to feed their pigs instead. The people who comitted these deed deserve nothing less than be put to prison and throw away the keys. But of course then you will complain about the human rights violations done to these people by the revolutionary government.

  20. Good post Yoani. There are no exceptions in Cuba to what you described.

    Fidel’s great accomplishment is universal corruption. Another Marxist success story.
