Why is there a single party in Cuba?

LOGO_PART_COM_CUBANO.svg

“… 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

Before you see this island nation, once off-limits to Americans, for yourself, you might find it useful to learn a bit about the history of its geography.

The 1600s and 1700s

Socialism in Cuba is deeply rooted – Via Granma International

f0022913

” 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:  | internet@granma.cu

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.

Cuba: Gender Equality, Marriage & Family in the New Constitution – Via Granma International

There were several central issues that generated proposals and suggestions, but if there was one which raised the temperature of the debate it was that of gender equality, marriage and the family, as part of Article 68.

Mariela Castro Espín, deputy from the Havana municipality of Plaza de la Revolución, commented that, in terms of fully protecting individuals regardless of their sexual orientation and gender identity, with this Article Cuba would be in the vanguard of countries recognizing and guaranteeing human rights.

“This protective proposal is the result of the maturity reached by the revolutionary process that legitimizes and safeguards social relations that exist in different types of families, from which derives the state’s duty to protect them and prohibit discrimination,” she stated.

With the premise that the 500th anniversary of the town of San Cristobal is not a goal but an opportunity and a starting point, historian Eusebio Leal urged the city to recover its dignity during the presentation of the communication campaign for the anniversary.

In his speech, the historian said that this city is today more democratic because it is more representative of the whole nation, “it is the capital, and therefore the head, is a superior among equals.
