Cuba: economic updates + the new Constitution

Sin título

Related: HERE

Since the beginning of the constitutional reform process, much has been written about the reasons change is needed, and foremost among these is the need to adjust the country’s fundamental law to our current reality, especially the transformations underway as the Policy Guidelines from the Seventh Party Congress are implemented, in accordance with strategic projections outlined in the Conceptualization of our economic model.

Thus it is no surprise that, as the popular consultation began on Monday – to continue through November 15 – many have noted that this reform is consistent with the economic updating underway, and that there are many connections to documents approved during the Seventh Party Congress which point toward a more just, sovereign, socialist, democratic, prosperous and sustainable society.

Why is there a single party in Cuba?


“… Multiparty systems are imperialism’s great tool to keep societies fragmented, divided in a thousand pieces; making societies incapable of solving problems and defending their interests.

A country divided in ten pieces is the perfect country to dominate, to subjugate, because the nation is without will, since the will of the nation is divided in many fragments; the strength of the nation is divided in many fragments; all intelligence is divided; and what it has is a constant, interminable battle among parts of the society.

A Third World country cannot afford this luxury. Actually many do give themselves this luxury, clearly for quite a while they have, and for quite a while a large part have been subjugated and dominated.

Clearly, for a society that must confront the problems of underdevelopment and develop under the difficult conditions for development existent in today’s world, unity is essential…

… Thus I have the most profound conviction that the existence of one party is, and must be, for a long historical period – no one can predict how long – the form of political organization of our society “

Fidel Castro Ruz , National Assembly of People’s Power Third Legislature’s 10th period

If I had the privilege of living my own life again …

“If I had the privilege of living my own life again, many things would make them different from how I did them until today, but I can assure them that all my life I would fight with the same passion for the same goals that I fought for today”

Fidel Castro Ruz

Fidel: The grateful, we meet once again … Via “La Joven Cuba”

By René Portuondo

In the life of every human being there are moments that are never forgotten, that are always remembered as if they were fixed in our memory.

For Cubans such a moment was the night of November 25, 2016. And it could not be otherwise, because a news like the one that hit us all that night, although natural, did not stop being extremely painful.

Almost 2 years have passed, and the grateful we meet again, not to mourn death, but to honor life. For the men who carry within themselves the decorum of an unjust people and dedicate all their existence to the dignity of that people never die.

A man like that was Fidel.

Socialism in Cuba is deeply rooted – Via Granma International


” Our socialism is not an arbitrary imposition, accepted by a docile people, but rather the result of a conscious, popular decision, upheld for generations, and reaffirmed forcefully in 2002 when more than nine million people signed a petition to include its irrevocable nature in the Constitution” From the Author:  |

Constitutions can also tell the story of a country – a history that takes into account every right won, and the struggles waged to gain them. The letter and spirit of all such texts are a clear reflection of the society they govern, through what is included in their articles and what is not.

The evolution of Cuban constitutional history is an inseparable part of our revolutionary tradition, of the legacy of our independence struggles that have brought us thus far, and that in a January almost sixty years ago, opened the way to take the socialist route with a Revolution “with all and for the good of all,” deeply tied to the thought of Martí and Fidel.

Cuban Government invites #CubanCitizens abroad to participate in the debate on the #ConstitutionProject / UPDATE

Sin título

The project of the new Cuban Constitution represents a total reform of the Magna Carta enacted since 1976, on the issue of citizenship as one of the conditions that change.

The present law of laws does not admit double citizenship, while the initiative that goes to popular debate from August 13 to November 15, proposes the principle of effective citizenship.

Article 32 of the present Constitution says: ‘Double citizenship will not be admitted. In consequence, when a foreign citizenship is acquired, Cuban citizenship will be lost(…)’.

Guantanamo: Resisting an illegal occupation for 120 years


Via Granma Cuba

The Guantanamo Naval Base is evidence of U.S. geopolitical and economic interests, riding roughshod over Cuba’s sovereignty and harming the Cuban people.

This was noted by historian Jose Sanchez Guerra, during the “Theoretical Encounter: 120 Years of the Yankee Military Presence in Guantanamo,” held at the University of Medical Sciences of this territory; as part of which professors, social science researchers and university students discussed the damages caused as a result of the United States’ oldest overseas military base.
