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?

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

Cuba began with just two jurisdictions: La Habana and Santiago. Each province held equal power and ranking. However, as La Habana grew, Santiago came to depend on it increasingly for protection.

The development of video games in Cuba represents a fundamental area in the country’s computerization policy, an essential issue in today’s society, with entertainment and educational uses.

The majority of Cuban-produced video games are created for environmental, educational, therapeutic, mental agility, and knowledge purposes, aimed at a range of users, although the focus is on younger generations.

The priority of this industry is to create new, higher quality video games, despite the challenges associated with promotion and distribution on any of the current platforms. Progress has been made, but remains insufficient, explained Luis Enrique Cubela González, head of Computing at the Animation Studios of the Cuban Institute of Cinematographic Art and Industry (ICAIC), speaking on the Mesa Redonda television program.

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.

The fabulous scene of Havana’s Paseo del Prado – Via Havana Private Suite

fixedw_large_4x.jpg

Paseo del Prado dominates one of the most popular and well located streets in Havana. All along its extension, we can see some of the most interesting places in the capital for their history and heritage values.

It starts on Malecon, just by La Punta Castle, and almost two kilometers from there it ends, in front of the beautiful art work known as Fuente de la India (Fountain of the Noble Indigenous Woman), next to Parque de la Fraternidad (Fraternity Park). In the surrounding area there are the hotels Parque Central, Sevilla, Telegrafo, Inglaterra; and the magnificent Grand Theater of Havana Alicia Alonso.
