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.

Beginning in June 2017, the Trump administration announced a series of measures which have undermined and, in some instances, reversed the diplomatic and travel liberalizations put in place under President Obama. Most crippling for U.S. travel have been the State Department’s official Travel Warning advising “U.S. citizens not to travel to Cuba,” the steep cuts in diplomatic personnel in the U.S. Embassy in Havana and Cuban Embassy in Washington, and the bans on specific types of travel and business transactions.

Pastors for Peace prepares next trip to Cuba


Pastors for Peace, Interreligious Foundation for Community Organization of the United States, prepares your next trip to Cuba. Executives of that institution, which has contributed so much to the strengthening of friendship ties between the two peoples, had to postpone the traditional caravan of solidarity due to problems in reserving tickets.

Gail Walker, executive director of Pastors for Peace, said that as another consequence of the blockade imposed by the United States on Cuba, the aircraft fleet that was available this summer was reduced and they could not secure the necessary seats.  However, he added, we do not desist and we remain determined to continue solidarity with the Cubans and now we are planning the November trip, which will be between the 16th and the 25th of that month.  Continue reading “Pastors for Peace prepares next trip to Cuba”
