    I read this book. Brother, it was horrific being in prison in Cuba for being a dissenter.

    Being a political prisoner is tough... ask Assange or Snowden or any of the people in Guantanimo Bay held without charge...

    Imagine he was a communist and was being held in a US prison for wanting to overthrow democracy and bring in communism to the United States of America... if we just listen to what Maria Butina had to say about her time in US prison for nothing like that sort of crime... solitary confinement... being told you were going to be be raped by the guards... and her crime was to get to know people in the NRA and Republican party because she wanted Russian gun laws to be changed to be more like US gun laws... how evil is that?

    Gitmo's oldest prisoner was released recently after serving 16 years WITHOUT ANY CHARGE!

    Robbing 16 years of a persons life without any criminal charges laid - how fucked up is that!

    Protests in Cuba were gestated from abroad through social networks, 14.07.2021

    An operation on social networks made an intensive use of bots, algorithms and newly created accounts to chorus the messages of the campaign against the government of Cuba in recent days and that led to the protests last Sunday, says Internet specialist Julián Macías Tovar, in a wide thread on Twitter, also cited by the portal Cubadebate.

    The analysis of the plan, composed of three phases, studied the more than 2 million tweets with the hashtag #SOSCuba, which began asking for humanitarian aid, and detected that it was launched from outside the island, since the first account that used that mention with information related to the Covid-19 crisis in Cuba was located in Spain.

    The first profile detected has a flag of Spain in his profile biography, he posted more than a thousand tweets on both July 10 and 11, and automates retweets by putting more than five per second, explained Macías Tovar, a Spanish national. More than a thousand 500 accounts that participated in the operation with the hashtag #SOSCuba were created those two days.

    The first part consisted of launching the campaign with the label denouncing the collapse of the health system due to cases and deaths due to Covid requesting help through fake and automated accounts that massively mentioned international artists, many of them using the label and positioning it as a global trend.

    The second phase was to publish in the media that dozens of artists joined in a campaign to ask a humanitarian corridor, the same that tried to do in Venezuela, a situation that only occurs in military conflicts usually, the more when Cuba has figures 15 times better than countries such as Spain, Ecuador or the united States, or 40 times better than Peru, where not made this type of campaigns.

    The last phase are demonstrations in principle with few people, but with the mention #SOSCuba being a global trend with maximum impact that helped them grow and with a final campaign on the part of the coordinators to request a military invasion of the United States.

    The campaign, according to Macías, was launched from abroad and has as reference the Argentine Agustín Antonneti, political operator of the right, member of the Libertad Foundation, who has participated in several operations against leftist processes in Latin America, including against President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, and the coup against the former Bolivian president Evo Morales, in November 2019.

    Media laboratories, fabricated news and publications inciting chaos from abroad flood the environment over Cuba on social networks to promote humanitarian intervention with the manual of soft blows, said Prensa Latina news agency.

    Other facts fabricated on social networks served to ensure that the Guantanamo naval base, territory usurped from Cuba, received flotillas of combat boats awaiting an intervention order.

    There were false announcements of illegal departures with boats coming from the United States to search for rafters and invasions waiting at the limits of Cuban territorial waters. Images that were attributed to Sunday's protests in Cuba, which were actually from the celebration in Buenos Aires for the recent triumph in the America's Cup and from the protests in Egypt two years ago, circulated in networks.

    The Cuban protests are not spontaneous and not anywhere the scale claimed. I suppose the NATzO fake stream media
    has realized that showing images of actual protests defeats their propaganda narratives, so from now on they will just
    use fakes. Expect the next "protests" in Russia consisting of a few thousand to be puffed up near a million with cut
    and paste photos and videos of other protests. The average NATzO FSM consumer does not have the mental acuity to
    notice the fakery.

    I suppose he is addressing these idiocies to the Cuban minority voters he has there.
    Political refugees are always the most polarized ones.
    Why Canada is one of the most anti-Russian countries on the planet?
    Because it hosted a vast number of Ukrainian nationalists, with the actual biggest number being nazi collaborators who had to flee after WW2.
    Descendants of nazi scum who were never juried, form the spear of Canadian public opinion now.

    Russia calls on the U.S. not to intervene in Cuba's internal affairs and to end the blockade of the island, 15.07.2021.

    Washington's discriminatory measures against Havana have been further exacerbated by the conditions of the coronavirus pandemic, lamented Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova.

    The spokeswoman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia, Maria Zakharova, commented on Thursday the relationship of the current social situation in Cuba with the blockade of the island by the U.S.

    The diplomat criticized the" open insolence " with which the U.S. authorities attribute the protests registered in Cuba last weekend to the actions of the local government.

    "A particular cynicism of Washington is that during the entire period of the existence of revolutionary Cuba, it deliberately pursued a strategy of suffocating the country, discriminating against its people and destroying the economy," Zakharova said.

    These " endless and absolutely illegal sanctions "have severely affected even the supplies of" the most essential consumer goods, including food and medicines, " lamented the spokeswoman, who stressed that the measures have been further intensified during the coronavirus pandemic.

    According to the diplomat, it is a strategy to promote the so-called 'color revolutions' that has already been applied in other countries with governments that were not to the liking of Washington.

    "The logic is simple. [...] First, [ ... ] sanctions are introduced, artificial problems are created or brought from outside, but they exert pressure on the socio-economic situation of the country. On this basis, tension is created, anti-government sentiments are fostered. And when the 'critical mass' accumulates, all the blame falls on the national Government," Zakharova described.

    Maria is my front runner for replacing Lavrov when he retires.

    If the US doesn't like you they first try to destroy your economy and if that doesn't work, they bomb you back into the Stone Age - then use that as an example of a failed "communist" State.

    The virulence in Canada is not a passive result but proactive. Canada hosts all sorts of militant minorities such as the Sikh Calistanis
    and Tamil Tigers. The Ukr Nazis are par for the course. This comes from the British centuries old policy of divide and rule. It was
    the British that created the Tamil problem. The British also used the Iroquois as tools against the French in the early days of North American
    colonization. This resulted in the genocide of the Huron people.

    BTW, Canadian Ukr Nazis were trained in the UK after WWII to be used as "jihadis" in Ukraine. There was a guerilla war there during
    the late 1940s and early 1950s. Stalin in this case was an idiot. He should have quarantined this pustule of anti-Russian hate instead
    of pushing it inside of Soviet Ukraine.

    Chile's socialist militants repudiate Bachelet's stance against Cuba, 17.07.2021.

    Socialists repudiated the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights and Chile's former socialist President Michelle Bachelet, for her stance towards Cuba while she remains silent about repression and imprisonment in Chile.

    The official called for the release of detainees in recent incidents in Cuba, but remains silent about the prison held by dozens of Chileans following protests in 2019, they said.

    At the same time, she described as peaceful demonstrators the vandals who staged acts of violence, looted shops and injured members of the security forces on the island last Sunday.

    Rafael Urrejola, former Press Chief of the Information and Broadcasting Office of the government of former Chilean President Salvador Allende, denounced that the prisoners in Chile have been without trials or evidence against them for almost two years and Bachelet has not said anything exhaustive to demand their freedom, as he does today in the case of Cuba.

    Speaking to Prensa Latina, Urrejola said he is not surprised that Bachelet ‘denies her past or that, since she took office (at the UN), her gaze has always gone in the same direction as that of the greatest human Rights violator in the world: the United States, which put her there and pays her salary’.

    He recalled that she has also not mentioned the flagrant violation of those rights in Colombia, where hundreds of social leaders were murdered.

    Among many other cases, Urrejola also pointed to the silence of the senior United Nations official about the horrors perpetrated at the illegal U.S. naval base in Guantánamo, Cuba.

    For his part, Jaime Lorca Tobar, President of Chile's Memory and Future Training Center, said Bachelet has lost all shame by stating that she 'forgot her revolutionary youth'.

    The brother of the Chilean hero of the Socialist Party Carlos Lorca, detained-disappeared since 1975, warned ‘’ Do not mess with socialist Cuba‘, and asserted that those who do so’ will receive the repudiation of the popular and true left and of the socialists at heart'.

    Likewise, Carlos Margotta, human Rights lawyer, recalled that those who today blame the Cuban government for the shortcomings of their people, omit the criminal effects of more than six decades of the U.S. blockade, which Bachelet's communiqué does not mention.

    The jurist stressed that the blockade against Cuba ‘is a constitutive act of the crime of Genocide, within the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court, as established by the Rome Statute’, which the United States has refused to sign.

    Its omission, he said, constitutes an act of complicity with the perpetrators of one of the most serious international crimes contemplated by International law.

    The west is all about "human rights" when it suits its agenda. Julian Assange, Gitmo, and clearly all sorts of other cases of incarceration
    with trial and vindictive "judicial" persecution in the "normal" western countries is not to be paid attention to. So much for western

    Actually it is even worse at Gitmo... a lot of people held there just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time and are not known to have done anything at all, but they couldn't release them now because obviously they might feel they owe it to the US to do it some damage for the time they spent away from their families and their lives.

    Assanges crime and Snowdens crime and Mannings crime was revealing warcrimes committed by the west in general and the US in particular... none of which were followed up or prosecuted...

    And of course lets not forget the rendition sites all round Europe for the CIA to torture political prisoners that often the countries politicians probably don't even know about... till they find themselves in one of course... kidnap people from a country and then take them to eastern europe for torture...

    Psaki claims Biden seeks to close Guantánamo forever, but still has no plan, 19.07.2021.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) - The government of Joe Biden aims to close the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, for good, while working to move the remaining detainees off the premises, White House press Secretary Jen Psaki said during a new conference on July 19.

    "Indeed, our goal is to close Guantanamo Bay (...) I don't have a schedule for you. As you know, there is a process, there are different layers of the process, but that is still our goal and we are considering all the possibilities available to responsibly transfer detainees and, of course, close Guantanamo Bay," Psaki said.

    US Secretary of State Antony Blinken announced in June, during a congressional hearing, that he is seeking to re-establish the office of the special envoy to facilitate the closure of Guantánamo Bay prison.

    The territory occupied by the U.S. Naval Base at Guantánamo (910 kilometers east of Havana), was occupied in 1903 by the U.S. army, as a result of an Agreement for Coal and Naval Stations signed between Washington and Havana, in circumstances in which the island was not absolutely independent, so the Cuban authorities consider its occupation illegal.

    Since 2002, this U.S. military base has been turned into a prison where they hold alleged terrorists from various countries in the Middle East.

    More details: 88 tonnes of aid - including food and personal protective equipment, and over 1 million medical masks.

    Note: The remaining of the article is the typical anti-Cuba rhetoric of Western media and we do not need to read.

    Going by the figures submitted to the OECD, Russia seems to provide Cuba with more aid than everyone else put together. Interesting fact.

    Of course I think it masks the true picture, because there are many types of aid, not only development funds. Russia provides military equipment for free or practically for free to Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan

    Not to mention the military equipment and assistance to Syria and the Central African Republic
