Piero Gleijeses: Why South Africa Loves Cuba
Tuesday, January 14, 2014

"While the American news media recently focused on “the handshake” between President Obama and Raúl Castro, it is worth pondering why the organizers of Nelson Mandela’s memorial service invited Raúl Castro to be one of only six foreign leaders—of the ninety-one in attendance—to speak at the ceremony," notes Professor Piero Gleijeses, of John Hopkins. The U.S. scholar and author explains that "not only was Raúl Castro accorded that honor, but he also received by far the warmest introduction: "We now will get an address from a tiny island, an island of people who liberated us ... the people of Cuba" Read More...

Message from Cuban Five Antonio Guerrero
Tuesday, December 24, 2013

"I remember when I first came to the penitentiary in Florence, Colorado, in the middle of a severe winter in 2002. I arrived carrying a life sentences on my shoulders, and soon learned that some inmates called that prison "a cemetery of living men".Violence was a daily part of the routine inside the walls of Florence USP and it was really hard just to find somebody there who was a quiet peaceful person.

They explained that is the time when physical and psychological problems start to appear.
