El PSOE y Podemos impiden que Parlamento español condene represión en Cuba

El Congreso de los Diputados de España rechazó condenar las detenciones arbitrarias de disidentes en Cuba, la segunda votación consecutiva en que los gubernamentales PSOE y Podemos hacen valer su mayoría y favorecen al castrismo.

Nov.25.– El Congreso de los Diputados de España rechazó condenar las detenciones arbitrarias de disidentes en Cuba, la segunda votación consecutiva en que los gubernamentales Partido Socialista Obrero Español (PSOE) y Podemos hacen valer su mayoría en un tema que concierne a la isla.

La primera votación estuvo relacionada con la censura de los crímenes del comunismo, que también rechazaron. Para las organizaciones exiliadas en España, resulta inexplicable que la extrema izquierda haya conseguido “imponer su agenda” en la política exterior.

Así lo explicó Yaxys Cires, director de Estrategia del Observatorio Cubano de Derechos Humanos (OCDH): “Honestamente, que el partido de Pablo Iglesias, que es de extrema izquierda, no condene la represión de jóvenes artistas e intelectuales en Cuba, no nos sorprende. Eso va con su esencia estalinista”.

India-China border disputes & Tibet

Nehru was a blundering and impractical politician. He complicated not only Tibet and India’s North East, but also Jammu & Kashmir state. [The latter was left to the current prime minister, Narendra Modi, to act decisively and display courage and competence. He tackled its on-going separatist and terrorist “culture” and ended its “special status” by abrogating the temporary Article 370 of the Indian Constitution, and brought it in line with the other Indian states.] Nehru, in his idealistic fervor and utopian dreams, had not acted like a patriot or a statesman and had surrendered much to China and also to the separatist Kashmiri Muslims. In his era, the favorite political slogan was “Hindi–Chini bhai bhai” (“Indians and Chinese are brothers”). It proved to be one-sided and disastrous to India with a big betrayal by China.

Left to Nehru, he would have messed up the relations between just-free India and the 500 odd princely states the British left in 1947 as “independent kingdoms.” It was due to the wisdom and diplomacy of then-Deputy Prime Minister Vallabhbhai Patel, who integrated the states with the Indian Union.

India had excellent relations with Tibet for centuries, and there were deep religious, educational, cultural, and trade ties between them. Actually, two of India’s most sacred and ancient places of pilgrimage— Kailash and Man Sarovar —are in Tibet and are still visited by Indians, though in a very restricted number because of the Chinese policies.

There have long been Indian scholars visiting Tibet, conducting research, studying there, and also bringing valuable material for Indians to study. This kind of relation was much less with Tibet and China—a distant land.

When the British left in 1947, India had “inherited” the British influence in Tibet, but soon Nehru gave it up.

A Ray of Hope

by Teresa You

Teresa YouWhen I was nine, my parents were arrested before my own eyes from our home in Beijing. They weren’t criminals: just Falun Gong practitioners.

My mother, a hospital worker, had just been looking for a spiritual practice, a way to live around her many illnesses. My father, a professor and Chinese Communist Party (CCP) member, followed suit after he saw my mother’s improvement in health.

When I was younger, my mom would tell me stories about how people would commit suicide during the Cultural Revolution because they were so humiliated. And before that, how the landlords had all of their money taken away, simply because everyone had to be “the same.”

My parents used to tell me these stories about other people, but when the Falun Gong persecution began, it finally happened to them too—even though my dad was a Party member who taught communism, socialism, and Marxism in school.

Diálogo Político publica amplio informe sobre los Derechos Humanos en Cuba



Pese a la reforma constitucional de 2018, los derechos

fundamentales siguen muy restringidos.

La reforma aprobada en 2018 dio mayor sustento a los derechos fundamentales en la Constitución cubana; un tenue rayo de esperanza para la población. Pero, en la práctica, los cubanos siguen sometidos a fuertes limitaciones. Sobre todo la libertad de expresión y la libertad de asamblea se limitan considerablemente. De hecho, el Gobierno las impide activamente. El lento progreso digital en Cuba y la crisis causada por el coronavirus generan aun más restricciones para los cubanos.

En Cuba los derechos fundamentales no son evidentes

Desde los tiempos de Fidel Castro, el gobierno cubano ha tenido una visión muy limitada de lo que son los derechos fundamentales y cómo la población cubana puede gozar de ellos. Si bien la reforma constitucional de 2018 garantiza más derechos fundamentales, dos años después la esperanza de que se incrementen las libertades en el país no se ha hecho realidad.

Washington DC, Aug.28.– An angry mob in the vicinity of the White House, Washington DC, surrounded on Friday Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and his wife as well as other lawmakers, including state Georgia Rep. Vernon Jones, a Democrat who supports President Donald Trump.

Video footage showed Paul, who also has a history of being brutally assaulted by his democrat neighbor several years ago, being protected in this instance from the crowd by police officers.

Paul and several women stood in place for at least 5 minutes until more officers arrived.
