Some Yes, Others No

Miriam Celaya is second from right in the right hand photo. Images taken from http://www.europapress.es y cambiosencuba.blogspot.com/

I turned on the TV, in one of those fits of credulity which now and then assail me. I wanted to hear the evening news, to know some news, to feel closer to the reality of Syria, so distant and so near. But here information is not measured by its importance in the rest of the world… so, patience, great patience. First came a report about some agricultural crops whose growth we have not noticed on our plates; a story about the increase in beans, bananas or quarts of milk that are still playing hide and seek with our mouths. I endured it. I wouldn’t take my eyes from the screen until I had heard about the deaths in Homs, the declarations of the Arab League, and the deaths of two journalists resulting from a bombing.

The minutes passed, uninformed and anxious. Suddenly I see a photo in which the blogger Miriam Celaya and other acquaintances appear, surrounded with epithets such as “mercenaries” and “traitors.” The reason was their participation in a workshop on digital media, held at the home of an official from the United States Interest Section. Outside a group of restless official paparazzi were taking photographs of the event to illustrate their later telling of it, in their own way, on national television. Whenever something like this happens, I wonder why the Cuban government keeps open a representation of the United States on the Island if — as they say — it is a “nest of provocation.” The answer is contained within the question itself: they would not be able to govern without putting the blame for the growing discontent on someone else. And, in addition, if the thousands of people who line up each week outside this diplomatic site to emigrate felt that there was no other outlet for their frustration, most likely they would take to our streets, to our plazas. In short, the Foreign Ministry suffers a visible conflict of avoidance-approach, love-hate, get away from me-I need you.

I would also love to know what happens to American citizens who visit the corresponding Cuban office on the soil of our neighbor to the north. Are their faces also broadcast on the news, accompanied by insults? Diplomacy, despite what many think, occurs not at the level of governments or presidential palaces, but person to person. So every Cuban should have the sovereign right to visit the embassies of Iran or Israel, Bolivia or Chile, Russia or Germany. Given that these contacts are not a crime under the penal code, they should be allowed and encouraged. The job of the government would be to protect these exchanges, not to dynamite them.

Even more surprising, the next day on the same boring news show, I see images of Raul Castro meeting with two important United States senators. But in his case they do not present him as a “traitor” or a “worm,” but as the First Secretary of the Communist Party. I know that many will try to explain to me that “he can because he is a leader.” In response to which, allow me to remind them, the president of a nation is just a public servant, he cannot engage in an action that is prohibited or demonized to his fellow citizens. If he is empowered to do it, why is Miriam Celaya not. Why not invite this woman, an anthropologist and magnificent citizen journalist who was born in 1959, the year of the Revolution itself, to some public center to relate her experience in working in the digital press, rather than relegate her to some locale provided to her by “others.” Why not dare to allow her one minute — even if it is only in the worst hour in the middle of the night — to speak on the official television that censors and stigmatizes her?

The saddest thing is that the answer to all these questions will never appear in this dull newscast at one in the afternoon, nor in the morning, nor at eight o’clock at night, nor at…

  1. Unsoricel, post 136, well spotted. Expect more insults from the sore losers club. That’s what they do when they get a kick in their ovaries.

    It hurts to suck at everything, even spraying hatefully all over the computer while writing insults, well hidden and shielded by their old pentium 3 computers in a dark rented room at the back of a brothel in Miami…

    Keep kicking them. The more they scream and insult, the harder they suffer your kicks.

  2. Cuba Libre(La MENTIROTA & HOMOPHOBE & LAME CONSPIRACY THEORIST) said: “For the rest I guess Humbertito and his anonymous culo answered you at number #18… exactly my thoughts about your clique here that tries to be an oligarchy that controls this blog and the ‘information’ flow.. in order to serve you!! first… Cuba later!”

    WHAT AN INTERESTING CONSPIRACY THEORY AND WILL ADD POTTY MOUTH TO YOUR PET NAME! BUT ITS STILL LAME!! IM A LONE WOLF MY FRIEND!! DO IT MY WAY, AND ALONE! JE JE JE! BUT KEEP AT IT, INNUENDO/DEFAMATION IS YOUR REDUNDANT AND INNEFECTIVE TOOL!

  3. I just got a new job at my company as the chief honcho of the Department of Redundancy Department.

  4. When someone pointed out to me that “litte” and “preguntitas” was redundant, I tried to cover my dumb mistake by saying I was trying to be sarcastic. Sorry everyone I know that you can see right through me.

  5. A poor translation to english, probably by a non-english speaker, and a religious maniac trying to spread another failed ideology – religion…

    As if this site wasn’t already a disastrous collection of failures and brainwash.

    And the team “yoani” still hiding under the table, avoiding answers to my little “preguntitas”.

    (I am intentionally writing “little” and “preguntitas” together. Not that the sarcasm will reach empty skulls of the support brigade pioneers.)

  6. Yeah Humbertito and your Anonimous asss are the true heroes of the new Cuban counter- revolution … With Griffin the ‘righteous’ bullshitter in tow…. Guys that make promises that would forget the moment Castro falls … Do you guys have US politicians as Daddies?????? Since you pimp Cuba at every corner…. The other version might be you’re just gettin desperate and your bosses don’t want to pay you anymore….

    Don’t think I have hear anything more stupid in my life than a Cubano from Miami wishing there w no petrol in Cuban waters just because Castro is at the helm…. nice one boys … Keep at it democratically!!!!! i.e. in turns..

  7. Christ light was there and for 2000 years they did fight it…
    That is the reason that now is darkness everywhere.They killed the Christ,the truth,the light for 2000 years

  8. Sure, let those “two important United States senators” meet with the traitorous brother Raul to improve relation between our countries. In the meantime, this is what those “wonderful” brothers have in storage for us in the island of Dr. Castro, as shown in this excellent article “Biotechnological Development under the Castroit Tyranny”. It is a long article with three distinctive parts: Biotechnological Development; West Nile Virus, Biological Weapon used against the US, and The Mysterious Deaths in the Castroit Regime.

    The Biotechnological Development provide information on the large amount of money expend in the research centers used as a smoke screen for the “extensive research and development in the field of bioterrorism for military purposes.”

    The WNV provides irrefutable evidence of what they have in storage for us, “Since 2001 the WNV epidemic has killed more than 1,200 people, an average of 110 deaths a year… The spreading of the WNV, besides the loss of human life and public health impact, had a substantial ecological and economical impact.” This has been accomplished with a low level biological weapon. The devastation cause by a more deadly biological weapon will be enormous.

    The Mysterious Dead shows how the tyrannical Castroit regime deal with the so call “traitors” through the regime control “wonderful” health system. It is very simple and safe with the use of the “Bulgarian treatment” and inoculation of lethal diseases.

  9. The blind lead the blind…and often torture and kill them
    Why does this happen?
    Because they are blind maybe…They live in the dark and they need light,the Christ

  10. From early Christians,the followers of Christ there were created 3 main branches of Christianity…and doesn’t matter where the dictators were born,raised and have come from in the countries called Christian..and even later called atheist…Christ must look at all of them as one of his people…but they were not…at least for 2000 years

  11. Maybe the Jesuits should follow Jesus now…or at least Ignatius Loyola;

    and if they do that,they may love the truth and not let the planet be a prison or a big concentration camp..in Cuba,China..Soviet Union and other countries in EU,Africa,Oceania, North and South America

  12. Stalin was not educated by Jesuits. He attended a Georgian Orthodox seminary. There are no Jesuits in the Orthodox church.

  13. Maybe not only old Castros but all elites of the world need Jesus…including those who have his name…who are not like Jesus who was a great teacher of the truth…and the truth doesn’t need to be hated and fought and killed…as often happen in Cuba and here in this blog

  14. that is great info Humberto (we did not know);

    Castro’s daughter Alina is quoted as saying “During this last period, Fidel has come closer to religion: he has rediscovered Jesus at the end of his life. It doesn’t surprise me because dad was raised by Jesuits.”

    Stalin who killed 60 million people in his country was raised by Jesuits too and maybe Mao…Looking at these fruits…maybe we should change the roots…raise the Jesuits to be better educators and teachers or babysitters…

  15. Humberto,

    Brazil pulled out? Now that is interesting. Maybe not as much oil as advertised, or perhaps they didn’t like the terms of the deal (you foreign capitalists put up all the investment & take all the risks, we Castro-Corp takes all the profits and eventually seize your assets!)

    Interesting indeed.

    By the way, could you please pass some Risperdal to dissident? Those voices are starting to speak to him again, “FEMA, UN jails, Jesse Ventura, Zeus!”

  16. dissident! THE CASTROFASCISTS WONT LET THE U.N. INTO CUBA! NOR THE INTERNATIONAL RED CROSS! MUCH LESS LITTLE OLD ME WITH MY TRACK RECORD ONLINE, WHERE I USE MY REAL NAME AND PICTURE! I HAVE EVEN BEEN THREATEN ONLINE BY ONE OF THE CASTROFASCIST AGENTS Marta Berglund ON A FACEBOOK PAGE TITLED “CUBA”! HE/SHE LIVES IN SWEDEN, SO I SENT A LETTER TO THE SWEDISH EMBASSY IN THE USA AND THEY JUST RESPONDED WITH HOW TO FILE A POLICE REPORT ONLINE WITH THE SWEDISH POLICE! THESE AGENTS THINK THAT THEY ARE LIVING IN CUBA EVEN WHEN THEY LIVE ABROAD AND CAN PUSH THEIR WEIGHT AROUND! SUCH ARROGANCE!

    United Nations Commission on Human Rights Commission- Cuba Report- 11 January 1995Report on the situation of human rights in Cuba, prepared by the Special Rapporteur, Mr. Carl-Johan Groth, in accordance with Commission resolution 1994/71

    5. On 10 August 1994, pursuant to his mandate, the Special Rapporteur addressed a letter to the Permanent Representative of Cuba to the United Nations Office at Geneva requesting the collaboration of the Cuban Government in accomplishing his mandate and an opportunity to visit the country. To date, there has been no answer to this letter.

    9. As far as the Special Rapporteur has been able to ascertain, the authorities do not provide figures on the number of persons serving sentences for politically related crimes. A partial list prepared by non-governmental groups in the country in November 1994 and sent to the Special Rapporteur contains 1,195 names. With a few exceptions, this list does not include the names of persons sentenced for antisocial behaviour or because they attempted to leave the country illegally. The authorities have also continued the practice of releasing some of these persons before they have served their full time, on the condition that they leave the country. These are persons on whose behalf foreign Governments or institutions interceded as mediators with the Cuban Government. Some of them rejected the offer and are still in prison.

  17. “From 1959 through the late 1990s, more than 100,000 Cubans experienced life in one of [Castro’s] camps [or] prisons…. Between 15,000 and 17,000 people were shot”.

    This is a big crime against the humanity…and UN should not be indifferent…and so all dissidents of Cuba…Cubalibre,Yoani and pope…who should meet the humans in the jails and camps also when he go next month in cuba

  18. BUT Griffin! ITS VERY INTERESTING THAT BRAZIL PULLED OUT OF THE CUBAN “OIL FIELDS”! IS THIS SPANISH EXPLORATION A WILD GOOSE CHASE? ARE THE CASTROFASCIST TAKING A BIG STAB IN THE DARK? DID THEY LIE SOMEHOW ABOUT THE PROSPECTS? I DONT THINK THEY WOULD LIE, NOW WOULD YOU? JE JE JE! NO MATTER, THE OIL STILL HAS TO BE PUMPED, REFINED AND SOLD! DONT THINK THAT WILL BE OVER NIGHT! THE END FOR THEIR FASCIST DICTATORSHIP IS VERY NEAR!!

    MERCO PRESS: Petrobras abandons oil exploration in Cuba; all eyes set on Repsol-YPF – Brazilian oil giant Petrobras has withdrawn from an offshore oil exploration block in Cuba’s waters that it leased amid great fanfare in 2008, a Brazilian official said on Thursday, citing poor prospects.

    Marco Aurelio Garcia, foreign policy adviser to President Dilma Rousseff, told reporters in Havana exploratory work off Cuba’s northern coast had not shown good results and that Brazil wanted to concentrate on its own oil fields.

    Asked if state-run Petrobras had abandoned the offshore Cuba block, he said: ”Yes, that was already decided some time back. Petrobras withdrew from that (block). We’re sorry, but the truth is you have to work with tangible elements and there wasn’t any security of that in this block“.

    Petrobras signed up for one of Cuba’s 59 offshore blocks in October 2008 in a Havana ceremony attended by then Brazilian President Lula da Silva and Cuban President Raul Castro. Lula da Silva had vowed Petrobras would find oil for Cuba heavily dependent on imports from oil-rich socialist ally Venezuela.

    The Petrobras block was just offshore from Cuba’s biggest oilfield, east of Havana.

  19. Humberto should be one of Jesse Ventura crew and go to Cuba film and investigate all the jails and camps there because he speak spanish and he knows Cuba well…and he should be paid well by Jesse Ventura and us, the TV watchers who like the truth to be known…and even UN should help with money and people too…Why not? We all pay UN?

  20. Jesse Ventura..a champion surfing guy now in Mexico… should get his film crew and investigates FEMA and UN’s concentration camps in every country including Cuba’s.
    If he start a project like this it will be so big (many episodes)that he may need a bigger world group to investigate all the world concentration camp…where the ritual human sacrifices are going on like in China’s video example against the dissidents

  21. I WOULD NOT PUT IT PASS “THE MUMMY” FIDEL CASTRO TO BE THIS CYNICAL AND HYPOCRITICAL! AFTER ALL THAT IS ONE OF HIS TRADEMARKS! BUT CAN A DEAD, SENILE OR COMATOSE PERSON BE ABLE TO GO THRU THIS PROCESS?? IM NOT CATHOLIC, NOR VERY RELIGIOUS!

    AMERICAN ENTERPRISE INSTITUTE MAGAZINE “THE AMERICAN”: Will Castro convert to Catholicism?- By Marc Thiessen

    While it has gotten little attention here, the news media in Italy is abuzz with rumors that Fidel Castro will convert to Catholicism during Pope Benedict’s upcoming visit to Cuba. GetReligion.org reports:

    Fidel Castro will be received back into the communion of the Roman Catholic Church during Pope Benedict XVI’s visit to the island in March, the Italian press is reporting. If true, this is a remarkable story — and one that has yet to catch the attention of editors this side of the Atlantic.

    On 1 Feb 2012, La Republicca … reported that as death approaches, the octogenarian communist has turned to God for solace.

    ABC’s Global Note news blog is the only U.S. general interest publication I have found that has reported this story. It referenced the La Republicca story and said that Castro’s daughter Alina is quoted as saying “During this last period, Fidel has come closer to religion: he has rediscovered Jesus at the end of his life. It doesn’t surprise me because dad was raised by Jesuits.” The article quotes an unidentified high prelate in the Vatican who is working on the Pope’s Cuba trip: “Fidel is at the end of his strength. Nearly at the end of his life.… We know that in this last period he has come closer to religion and God.”

    Some Italian websites have even speculated as to when Fidel will make his confession and credo — setting the date as 27 March 2012 at 17:30 when the two ottantacinquenni, Pope Benedict XVI and Castro, will meet at the Palacio de la Revolución when the pope makes his official visit to the head of state, Raul Castro.

    If this actually happens, it would be nothing short of a miracle. Rarely does someone who has cooperated with evil so deeply and for so long achieve true repentance. Castro certainly has a great deal to confess. According to the Black Book of Communism, a groundbreaking effort by a group of French scholars to document the lives lost to Communism in the 20th century:

    From 1959 through the late 1990s, more than 100,000 Cubans experienced life in one of [Castro’s] camps [or] prisons…. Between 15,000 and 17,000 people were shot.

    And according to the State Department’s most recent human rights report on Cuba, the Castro regime continues the “harassment, beatings, and threats against political opponents by government-organized mobs and state security officials acting with impunity; [imposes] harsh and life-threatening prison conditions, including selective denial of medical care; arbitrary detention of human rights advocates and members of independent organizations; and selective prosecution and denial of fair trial.”

    Will Castro confess and repent of these and countless other crimes he has committed against the Cuban people? And even if he does, will he be willing not only to confess, but to accept the Church’s admonition: “Go and sin no more”? When Saul of Tarsus, the great oppressor of the early church, was struck blind on the road to Damascus and became the Apostle Paul, he did not simply convert—he immediately ceased his oppression. Will Fidel cease his oppression of the Cuban people? Will he, in the words of Isaiah, “bring out the prisoners from the dungeon, from the prison those who sit in darkness?”

    In 1994, Castro declared he “would rather die than abandon the revolution.” Perhaps as he finally nears death, he has reconsidered. If he truly has, we will know it not by some announcement during the Pope’s visit, but rather by what happens after the Pope departs Cuba. If Castro orders the Cuban gulags emptied; disbands his network of “committees in defense of the revolution” which police neighborhoods and orchestrate “acts of repudiation” against dissidents and their families; shuts down his brutal ministry of the interior and ceases the arbitrary arrest and detention of his political opponents; allows freedom of speech, assembly, and religion, and, ultimately, democratic elections, then—and only then—will we know that Fidel Castro has truly converted.

  22. Jesse Ventura investigates FEMA concentration camps..not me;

    and the so called…conspiracy is in fact the truth in these days…

  23. Humberto,

    Interesting report at FT. Put that together with the paper from Betancourt about how the regime is introducing these limited economic reforms, not to liberalize the economy, but to access a stream of hard currency to keep the regime afloat. The Castros know their Venezuelan sugar daddy won’t be around much longer and another “Special Period” is on the way. They’re hoping another round of repression will keep them in power long enough to get those new off shore oil deposits on line. If they can strike the petro-dollar goldmine, the dictatorship will have a new lease on life. Too bad for the Cuban people who just want some freedom.

  24. EL SAPO CHAVEZ IN HUNKY DORY!! FOR SURE! SO WHY ALL THE SECRECY??

    HUFFINGTON POST: Hugo Chavez Cancer Treatment: Venezuela President Recovering From Surgery In Cuba- By PETER ORSI

    “President Chavez is in good physical condition,” Vice President Elias Jaua told the main chamber of the National Assembly. “A total extraction of the pelvic lesion was done. … There were no complications.”

    Jaua did not say when Chavez had the surgery.

    Chavez, 57, announced last week that doctors in Cuba had found a new tumor in his pelvic region, in the same place where a baseball-size malignant growth was removed last summer.

    He traveled to Cuba on Friday and said he would undergo tests on the weekend and have the operation early this week.

    But until Tuesday there was no official word on Chavez’s health, leaving the rumor mills free to churn unchallenged. Some talked of a purportedly dire prognosis for the Venezuelan leader, but none could be confirmed or named their sources.

    Venezuelan journalist Nelson Bocaranda, who is considered sympathetic to the anti-Chavez opposition and first broke the news last week that Chavez was in Cuba, said the president had been operated on Monday night and was recovering in Havana’s Cimeq hospital.

  25. Cubas government(the ruling party) is who oppresses its population. People serve long jail terms for expressing unfavorable ideas. Whats missing in Cuba are books, internet, news papers and unbias information and available to ALL. Cuba is ONE BIG JAIL and the reason so many protest and jump into the Florida straits on make shift rafts.

  26. I am from the ancient Greece (we may be cousin)too but I see the world different…It look so much like Cuba now everywhere…but more censured maybe.
    At least most of the world concentration camps,their paranoid nations and governments,armies and police or intelligence look equal with those in Cuba…I have experienced them, and they called me all a dissident and conspiracy theorist

  27. Good you are becoming much better and international,not just a hired men to do nothing else all day…but hit Cuba. You better hit everywhere your fire strikes like Zeus did…
    Yoani as socialist and smart should do the same not as Zeus,but as Athena…
    Who know you both may be from the ancient Greece…who later moved to Spain and Cuba

  28. Oh wonderful… now we have a FEMA concentration camp paranoid conspiracy theorist. Any chemtrails alarmists out there?

  29. EVEN THE F.A.R.C. TERRORIST GROUP IN COLOMBIA CAN READ THE WRITING ON THE WALL AND HAVE MADE SEVERAL CONCESSIONS THAT MIGHT END THEIR VIOLENT ATTEMPT AT A MARXIST STATE! BUT OF COURSE THE CASTROFASCIST OLIGARCHY IS STILL USING VIOLENCE TO STRETCH OUT THE RECKONING DAY THAT IS COMING!

    THE BOSTON HERALD: Dozens of dissidents reported arrested in Cuba-By Juan O. Tamayo
    “There’s a kind of state of paranoia” in which security agents are sweeping up anyone they consider a threat, said Havana human rights activist Elizardo Sanchez Santa Cruz, who put the confirmed weekend arrests at more than 100.

    Most were freed hours or days later, not in time to join protests marking the Feb. 23, 2010, death of political prisoner Orlando Zapata Tamayo after a lengthy hunger strike or the deaths of four South Florida men whose Brothers to the Rescue airplanes were shot down by Cuban fighter jets on Feb. 24, 1996.

    One surprising crackdown was against the Ladies in White in Havana, which have been largely unmolested over the past two year when they attended Sunday Mass at the Santa Rita church and then afterward marched around the neighborhood.

    But police and pro-government mobs have not allowed the women any other type of protests, and swiftly arrested 20 of them when they appeared to be taking their march outside their usual boundaries, Soler told McClatchy Newspapers.

    “We walked to our usual bus stop and about 15 got on a bus that filled up, so the rest of us started walking to another bus stop, and all of a sudden we were surrounded by police cars, motorcycles, buses, everything,” she added.

    Two of the buses were filled with people in civilian clothes who would have staged a so-called “act of repudiation” against them if necessary, Soler added. Instead, she and 19 others Ladies in White were shoved into the empty third bus and driven away.

    They were held on the bus for more than four hours, Soler said. Most were then driven close to their homes, but one was dropped off in a farming area about 20 miles from her home.

  30. GREAT ARTICLE RELATING TO CUBA! UNLIKE SO MUCH OF THE TROLL GARBAGE HERE!

    FINANCIAL TIMES: Chávez, his friends and life after death- by John Paul Rathbone

    One of the more interesting lines of speculation about Hugo Chávez’s deteriorating health and possible death is what it might mean for the socialist Venezuelan president’s many foreign allies. These include Cuba and Nicaragua in the Venezuelan near abroad, to further-flung friends in Syria and even China.

    By opposition estimates, Mr Chávez’s government has disbursed some $80bn in grants and subsidies since 2005, much of it
    ideologically-driven gift-giving to friendly Latin American nations. On top of that largesse, Venezuela has also bought some $5bn of arms from Russia, and borrowed over $30bn from China in return for supplies of oil. This month, a Venezuelan oil tanker also called at the Syrian port of Baniyas in the midst of the popular uprising against Bashar al-Assad.

    Most of Mr Chávez’s allies can cope with a change of regime in
    Caracas. But not communist Cuba. An end to its $5bn of annual
    Venezuelan aid, equivalent to about a quarter of Cuban GDP, would produce at the very least a severe recession.

    When I met last month in Havana with pro-democracy blogger Yoani Sanchez, she thought this would force Raúl Castro’s government to push ahead faster with its limited market reforms. Now, though, she seems to have changed her mind. Ms Sanchez tweeted last week that it could lead to a second “special period” – the severe belt-tightening and political crackdown in Cuba that followed the collapse of the Soviet Union.

    Both of Ms Sanchez’s scenarios are equally plausible – which
    highlights again how so much of the musing about Mr Chávez’s health is just speculation layered on top of more speculation. For one, nobody really knows how ill Mr Chávez is, except for his Cuban doctors. (And maybe not even them, as shown by a clutch of recent WikiLeak emails from Stratfor, the US security consultancy.)

    Even so, speculation can bring about concrete changes in the real world.

    It may only be a coincidence, but this Sunday the Marxist FARC guerrillas that operate in neighbouring Colombia said they would release some of their remaining hostages and desist from civilian kidnappings – all as an opening to possible peace talks with Bogotá.

    It is too much to call the Farc “allies” of Mr Chávez. Still, in the recent past they have enjoyed his tacit succour and support.

    By offering an olive branch to the Colombian government, might even the Farc – who are shrewd and canny enough to have kept an insurgency going for 40 years – also be preparing for a post-Chávez future? It is an intriguing thought.

  31. Humberto,you are right in your work…but to get a nobels price as the Truthfighter, your beam of light should be much bigger and lighet in every country, not just Cuba…because there are countries worse than Cuba in every continent who suffer humans and they make 90% of the UN members…with North Korea,China,USA,Cuba,and some African and Euroasia countries on top of the list.

    Yoani…should go also international with her scope and hit direct and not indirect.
    There are million people like her who have no voice,no one to finance or help them.
    Yoani and Humberto must help them…spend time with their suffering and their diets

  32. Cuba Libre(La MENTIROTA & HOMOPHOBE & LAME CONSPIRACY THEORIST) said: “And MY Nobel Dynamite for pimping Cuba to the American media goes to….Humbertito and his Anonymous Asss!”

    I WANT TO THANK ALL THE LITTLE CASTROFASCITS AGENT/APOLOGISTS FOR THIS HONOR! YOU REALLY LIKE RIGHT NOW DONT YOU!

    YOUTUBE: Sally Field winning Best Actress for “Norma Rae”

  33. UN was involved to make a film about Cuba but doing nothing but just watching crimes

    I think that pope does a mistake…to visit a country with such a past,where people are tortured and killed for nothing…and the criminels rule still as capitalists…
    UN should go to Cuba and force to open borders so who like to leave,must leave Cuba by the UN big ships…Why doesnt this happen? Because UN is the leader of the crimes commited in ever nation and financed not to stop but to create,let to grow the crimes so more good humans are killed in the modern ritual human sacrifices

  34. YeahYeahYeah!!! I CAN SEE I HAVE GAINED A NEW FAN! THANK YOU BABY!! AND LETS NOT FORGET MY OTHER DEVOTEE Cuba Libre (La MENTIROTA & HOMOPHOBE & LAME CONSPIRACY THEORIST) ! JE JE JE!

  35. Many countries with the help of FEMA and banks,corporations who create and finance and run the governments are building;

    – hunderts of concentration camps
    – have hunderts of old and new jails
    – have many sofisticated torturing tools
    – very sadistic,experienced staff-beasts

    and they are waiting for the moment when at least 1-2 billion of humans,mostly innocent and good people,truthlovers … will be in their hands and many of them bloggers, freemedia people in internet;in facebook, youtube…or who spoke in the street,office,market. There are prepared lists for them…and they are going to be all deleted or tortured for a while…just for fun,mostly to emploey the human beasts and grow fear,censure and autocensure

  36. This video shows that Cuba was like many other nazi-communist country.Even Che cud be jaled,tortured and killed…by them..and maybe he was somehow.Many others ended jailed or killed too;

    Not just Humberto but all Cubans,Yoani too should tell about what happen in the world…in all countries where humans are in jails,tortured and killed…as in;
    – Central America
    – North America
    – South America
    – Europe
    – Asia
    – Africa
    which cud be a big number of humans to talk about; 2 billion
    That should be a good blog and maybevget a nobel price for such Truth

  37. It is wrong and shameful for what has happen in Cuba until now decade after decades…but it is also shameful that only YES is let in the comments in the blog,but is not let any…NO at all and that is hypocrisy.
    (same as the regime’s media brainwashing and censure)
    To bad the truth has no media…and this is why there are so much tyranny, tyrants and censure today as yesterday in the world

  38. Oh definitely, give the Nobel Peace Prize to some terrorist from Gaza shooting rockets at Israeli kindergarden.

    But I’m puzzled why Un Soricel would endorse the people in Homs. After all, the Castro regime supports the dictator Assad, as they did Gadaffi. They had the Cuban ambassador to the UN vote against a resolution condemning the Syrian gov’t repression. And Castro’s buddy Hugo Chavez has sent two tankers full of diesel to Syria to keep the army rolling over the people. Cuba’s other new best friend forever, Iran is even sending their IIRG assassins to kill the Syrian people.

    Clearly, Un Soricel missed the memo from the Cuban central committee: the butcher of Damascus is an ally of Cuba. You better correct those counter-revolutionary thoughts immediately!

  39. @UnSoricel:

    That entity does not exist, you are a complete and utter bore.

    @Help:

    That they don’t see the hypocrisy of such notions is a source of constant amusement.

  40. I love Yoani’s line:

    “I would also love to know what happens to American citizens who visit the corresponding Cuban office ”
