UNITED WORLD INTERNATIONAL: What is happening in Cuba?


Walter Lippmann
 

 

EXCERPT: 

Now it is possible to see part of what is behind the recent demonstrations in Cuba, for which the Cuban people have taken to the streets asking for “freedom”, but it is also possible to affirm that the majority of the Cuban people have taken to the streets, yes, to defend their Revolution. Demonstrations of solidarity with the Cuban Revolution have begun to multiply in Latin America and the Caribbean. In Mexico, for example, the president López Obrador has said: “the truth is that, if you really want to help Cuba, the first thing you should do is suspend the blockade of Cuba, as the majority of the countries of the world are claiming”.

We totally agree: That would be a true humanitarian gesture. Meanwhile there is no doubt that imperialism is the worst virus facing not only Cuba but all the peoples of the world.
