Recipe For Forgetting Fidel Castro / 14ymedio, Yoani Sanchez

14ymedio, Generation Y, Yoani Sanchez, Havana, 13 August 2016 – Turn on
the radio and the announcer reads a brief headline: "Fidel Castro, The
Great Builder." The man goes on to explain that the most important works
of the country have come from this head that for decades has been
covered by an olive-green cap. Weary of so much personality cult, I
decided to watch television, but on the main channel a lawyer was
detailing the legal legacy of the Maximum Leader and at the end of the
program they announced a documentary about "The Invincible Guerrilla."

For weeks, we Cubans have lived under a veritable bombardment of
references to Fidel Castro, which has increased in proportion to the
closeness of the date of his 90th birthday, this 13 August. There is no
shame nor nuance in this avalanche of images and epithets.

This whole excess of tributes and reminders is, undoubtedly, a desperate
attempt to save the former Cuban president from oblivion, to pull him
out of that zone of media abandonment in which he has fallen since
announcing his departure from power a decade ago.

We have left the man born in the eastern town of Biran, in 1926, in the
past, condemning him to the 20th century, burying him alive.

Children now in elementary school have never seen the once loquacious
orator speak for hours at a public event. Farmers have breathed a sigh
of relief on not having to receive constant recommendations from the
"Farmer in Chief" and even housewives are thankful that he does not
appear at a congress of the Federation of Cuban Women to teach them how
to use a pressure cooker.

The official propaganda knows that people often appeal to short-term
memory as a way of protecting themselves. For many young people, Fidel
Castro is already as remote as, for my mother in her day, was the
dictator Gerardo Machado, a man who so adversely marked the life of my
grandmother's generation.

Followers of the figure of Fidel Castro are taking advantage of the
celebrations for his nine decades of life to try to erect a statue of
immortality in the heart of the nation. They deify him, forgive him his
systematic errors and convert him into the most visible head of a creed.
The new religion takes as its premises stubbornness, intolerance for
differences, and a visceral hatred – almost like a personal battle –
against the United States.

The detractors of "Él," as many Cubans simply call him, are preparing
the arguments to dismantle his myth. They await the moment when the
history books no longer equate him with José Martí, but offer a stark,
cold and objective analysis of his career. They are the ones who dream
of the post-Castro era, of the end of Fidelismo and of the diatribe that
will fall on his controversial figure.

Most, however, simply turn the page and shrug their shoulders in a sign
of disgust when they hear his name. They are the ones who, right now,
turn off the TV and focus on a daily existence that negates every word
Fidel Castro ever said in his incendiary speeches, in those times when
he planned to build a Utopia and turn us into New Men.

Tired of his omnipresence, they are the ones who will deal the final
blow to the myth. And they will do it without hullabaloo or heroic acts.
They will simply stop talking to their children about him, there will be
no photos in the rooms of their homes showing him with a rifle and
epaulettes, they will not confer on their grandchildren the five letters
of his name.

The celebration for the 90th birthday of Fidel Castro is, in reality,
his farewell: as excessive and exhausting as was his political life.

A Cult Taken to Extremes / Fernando Dámaso

Fernando Damaso, 12 August 2016 — Despite some early warning signs, I
never imagined that the cult of personality in Cuba would surpass that
of Stalin, Mao Zedong and Kim Il Sung, to mention just three examples
from the "socialist bullpen." I forgot the wise words of the great
Dominican-born Cuban general Maximo Gomez, when he observed that "Cubans
either excel or fall short." On the good things we usually fall short
while on the bad ones we excel.

In 2016 "the elderly main character" has been called a great visionary,
a political genius, the most steadfast disciple of José Martí, an
invincible military strategist, a senior pioneer, an eternally young
rebel, a daring fighter, the eternal guerrilla, a fiery prophet of the
dawn, the reformer of Marxism-Leninism, a towering architect, a
prominent educator, an unbeatable thinker, an original writer, a
distinguished journalist, an innovative farmer, a senior public health
professional, a solid economist, a major athlete, a stellar scientist
and — to finally top it off — the creator of everything produced in the
country (due to his "inexhaustible initiative") for the last fifty
years. It appears that "the Esteemed," a term of praise reserved for the
20th century Cuban president Gerardo Machado, has conveniently been
declared off limits lest it be applied to a certain absent-minded
historical leader.

Every day mediocrities compete with each other to come up with new
"qualities" in a attempt to outdo their predecessors from past eras in
obsequiousness.

This year will go down in history as the year when many Cubans succumbed
to opportunism, ethical shortcomings and cowardice, traits which will
bring shame to their dependents.

This raises a simple question: How is it possible that someone with all
these attributes has been such a disastrous ruler, leading the country
into ruin and backwardness, and Cubans into poverty? Many, including
myself, consider him to be the worst president in all of Cuban history.

It would have been much better for everyone if normal leaders — people
with both virtues and flaws and without so many "qualities" — had been
elected every four years. People without messianic beliefs or
historicist pretensions. Rest assured we would not be in the predicament
we are now, throwing stones into the socialist void. We would have
preserved the accomplishments of previous generations and would be much
more advanced.

In academic terms, this circus is referred to as a "cult of
personality," one taken to the extreme. In the Cuban vernacular it is
known simply as guataquería* of the worst kind.

praising or granting favors to someone in order to obtain personal

Wake Up, America / 14ymedio, Pedro Campos

14ymedio, Pedro Campos, Havana, 11 August 2016 — Latin American
governments who are closing their borders to the crossing of Cubans
seeking to leave Cuba's state slavery to reach the United States are
complicit in the genocide that is increasing in the Straits of Florida,
the only escape route left to the island's new escaped slaves.

Don't they know that the border closures are forcing Cubans to risk
their lives at sea? Don't they realize, doesn't it pain them, don't they
feel remorse?

First was the government of Daniel Ortega in Nicaragua, unconditional
ally of the Castro regime, which was then was followed by other Central
American governments and joined by Mexico, Colombia and Ecuador, the
latter of which is now deporting Cubans.

These are countries with millions of its citizens in the United States,
a good part of them illegally, whose governments systematically condemn
our northern neighbor for its policy of closing its borders with Mexico
to try to prevent the arrival of Mexicans, Nicaraguans, Central
Americans, Colombians, Ecuadorians and other nationalities.

They scream about the, but now close they close their borders so that
Cubans cannot pass. This is called the politics of a double standard.

Where is the solidarity with Cuba? Or do they understand that this
should be addressed to the government responsible for this genocide and
not the Cuban people, its victim?

How long are they going to look away before the Cuban government's
repression against its own people, its guilt for the exodus because of
the absence of democracy and freedoms of every kind imposed on the
island in the name of a socialism that doesn't exist and whose mission
is to piteously and arbitrarily exploit the workers, who are paid
poverty level wages by the state that decides everything and is the
principal employer, for the primary benefit of an elite and corrupt elite?

Are they still afraid that the Castro regime will send them guerillas?
Do they know that one of the most famous Latin Americans of all time,
José Martí, called state socialism, later imposed on Cuba by the Castro
regime, "future slavery"?

Every day the international press agencies report on dozens of Cubans
intercepted on the high seas by the US Coast Guard and returned to Cuba,
or that dozens of others reach the coasts of Florida, but almost never
reported are those who leave and never arrive, who are not news because
their corpses never appear and their families in Cuba keep a desperate
silence, imaging that some day they will get a call from the United States.

Do they have any idea of how many thousands of Cubans have lost their
lives facing the waves, the Gulf Stream and the sharks, trying to escape
to the north? Latin Americans trying to do the same run other dangers in
the jungles, with the coyotes, whose existence is the responsibility of
those governments, precisely for making the passage through their
territories forbidden when it should be normal.

These governments should show solidarity with the Cuban people, open
their doors and allow them to continue their journey to the United
States in a safe way. This is their responsibility and I hope they
rectify their position.

There is already a certain resentment, a deep rejection among many
Cubans toward these governments for their attitude toward our fellow
citizens, who have been mistreated for the simple desire to get to the
United States, something very common among Latin Americans tired of the
misery and repression in their countries.

We Cubans have always shown solidarity with the just causes and
misfortunes of our Latin American brothers, we have always opened our
doors to Latin American victims of repression. Do the Cuban people
deserve this treatment from their governments.

It is well-known that many Latin Americans who arrive in the United
States have received broad support and collaboration from Cubans who
live there; Artists, businesspeople, media workers, simple employees. We
also know that Cubans are a wealthy and influential nationality in the
United States.

The demands made by some nations to end the US laws that favor the
emigration and settlement in the United States of Cubans, seem motived
more by the desire to have the same advantages conferred on their
citizens. Then fight for this and not for it to be taken away from the
suffering Cuban people.

Wake up, America.

The "Comandante's" Carnivals / 14ymedio, Marcelo Hernandez

14ymedio, Marcelo Hernandez, Havana, 12 August 2016 – After weeks of
anxieties and rumors, the Havana carnivals are starting tonight. A
popular celebration whose date* has again been postponed this year to
make it coincide with the eve of ex-president Fidel Castro's 90th birthday.

For several days, the floats that will parade in front of the stands,
bleachers and grandstands along Havana's Malecon, have been under
construction near the site. This Friday, the official newspaper Granma
published a note with the names of the streets that will be closed and
warned people not to "attend the festivities carrying glass containers,
knives or fire."

The choice of this day for the start of the carnival once again alters
its date, which for decades had been moved from its traditional
February. The first of these changes happened in 1970, when the
celebrations were moved to coincide with the celebrations for July 26
(the date of the failed attack on the Moncada Barracks in 1953, that is
considered the beginning of the Revolution), but over the years it has
been postponed again and again.

The increasing scarcity of domestic beers in the retail market and the
announcements of economic setback had made many fear that the
festivities would not be celebrated in Havana. However, the worst fears
have not been realized and now Havana residents say, half jokingly and
half seriously: "These are the Comandante's carnivals."

Cuban Government Lifts Censorship Against Revolico / 14ymedio, Zunilda Mata

14ymedio,Zunilda Mata, Havana, 12 August 2016 — With the same discretion
that eight years ago led the government to censor a popular Cuban
version of Craigslist, it has now lifted its electronic blocking,
without any announcement or public statements. The news of the unlocking
the Revolico, a site filled with classified ads, has revolutionized the
wifi connection sites.

Access to Revolico is also possible now from the computers in the Nauta
internet rooms managed by the government-run Cuban Telecommunications
Company (ETECSA), according to what this newspaper was able to confirm.

In several Havana hotels that offer internet access to their guests from
terminals in the lobby, one can go directly to Revolico's home page,
navigate its menu options and look at the classified ads without any
hitches.

However, users of Infomed, managed by the Ministry of Public Health,
complain that Revolico remains inaccessible from servers at that
institution.

Despite the government's long-standing censorship of Revolico, it became
the leading classified site on the island. Its main attraction is the
vast assortment of ads – 16 million accumulated from the start – for
property, the buying and selling of technology, job offers, and every
kind of home appliance, all scarce on the country's store shelves, can
be found on their pages.

The well-known "weekly packet" distributed in the informal market each
week, for years has included a copy of Revolico intended for users
without internet access, a solution that facilitates the posting of ads
via email and has helped increase users to the current 300,000 unique
visitors a month.

Hiram Centelles, cofounder of Revolico, is satisfied with the new
situation of the site and already anticipates possible improvements. "In
the near future we will launch a new version of the product and
platform, and we are getting many more users in Cuba, now that the site
is unblocked. Our goal is to continue providing the best classified ad
service to Cubans, as we have done these past eight years," he told
14ymedio.

Several digital sites that have been censored for years, such as
14ymedio, still remain inaccessible, unless the surfer uses an anonymous
proxy anonymous or other tricks to circumvent censorship.

Cuban Second National Conference Debates Principles of a "New Cuba" /
14ymedio, Reinaldo Escobar

14ymedio, Reinaldo Escobar, San Juan, Puerto Rico, 12 August 2016 — The
Cuban 2nd National Conference is meeting this Friday in San Juan, Puerto
Rico, under the slogan "United we will be free," with the presence of
nearly a hundred activists from the island and from exile.

The event seeks to "provide a space for reflection and dialogue among
the greatest possible number of opposition organizations" to discuss,
among other things, the principles of a "New Cuba." Throughout the
meeting, which will run until noon on Monday, there will be a discussion
of the creation a structure of unity of action in diversity inside and
outside Cuba.

The organizers of the conclave have predicted, at the end of the
discussions, there will be proposals of candidates for the elective
positions of the resulting structure, and a vote. The members elected by
the new organization will inform the plenary regarding the work to be
carried out both within Cuba and from the exile.

The meeting has as its antecedent the one held last year, where a
nine-member Coordinating Committee was created, with five members from
the internal opposition and four from the exile. Their principal mission
has been to communicate the contents of the Declaration of San Juan and
coordinate the current meeting.

On the eve of the conference and during the first day of work, attendees
focused on ironing out differences and finding common ground in order to
achieve the democratization of Cuba. Creating a coalition or common
front among the opposition is the larger challenge ahead of the
participants.

The Cuban 2nd National Conference is taking place at a time of intense
debate among Cuban activists on the island, a situation reflected in the
departure of at least two of the most representative opposition groups
on the island – the Patriotic Union of Cuba (UNPACU) and the United
Anti-totalitario Forum (FANTU) – from the Democratic Action Unity
Roundtable (MUAD).

A statement released this week by Boris Gonzalez, MUAD spokesperson,
sent a greeting to all the participants in the Second Conference, and
wished them "the greatest successes to achieve the democratization of
Cuba." The document recognizes "all efforts in this direction." This
opposition coalition is widely represented in the San Juan meeting.

Cuba, 5 August 1994: Spontaneous Revolt, Expected Response / Juan Juan
Almeida

Juan Juan Almeida, 5 August 2016 — In Cuba 1994 marked the low point of
an economic downturn which has been ongoing since the demise of the
Eastern bloc in 1989. At the time the government was anticipating social
unrest in the east of the country.

Discontent within the military had reached dangerous levels due to
layoffs and forced reassignments by the the Interior Ministry after
Cause I and Cause II* of that year produced the same rumblings as the
libertarian winds blowing into the island from Eastern Europe. The
crisis was exacerbated by a sugar harvest that barely reached four
million tons and by the untimely arrival of a polyneuritis epidemic,
which forced authorities to take extraordinary economic measures. In
terms of the volume of its transactions, the black market rivaled
state-run stores, but with prices twenty times higher.

Financial imbalance, budget deficits and an insolvent population turned
life into a daily drama. Cubans routinely witnessed unconventional
attempts at illegal emigration, such as the hijacking of the 13 de Marzo
Tugboat and the ferries at Regla and Casablanca.

It was a time of exhaustion, privation, hopelessness, anger and
blackouts. The government realized, all too well, that all these factors
could easily set off an explosion, which it believed would lead to
riots. It was prepared for this but it had no confidence in the loyalty
of the Interior Ministy's Special Forces. As we now know, it responded
by creating the Black Wasps, an elite and parallel military force that
included anti-riot units.

The anticipated popular uprising (which ordinary Cubans call the
"Maleconazo") began on August 5 but, to the astonishment of the Cuban
high command, it was not about overturning the government; it was about
leaving the country. The government reacted with its customary
brutality, counterattacking in every direction. Through lightning force,
trickery, viciousness and bloodshed it crushed the protests. It
infiltrated the demonstration with its own agents, who tempered the
group's fortitude in order to allow Fidel to later make an appearance in
the conflict zone, which made an impression both on those present and
world opinion.

Those implicated in the uprising were forced to publicly denounce it in
the national media, which decided to refer to the protests as "the
events of August 5."

They exhibited both a perfidious strategy and strength. For the rest of
that summer, helmeted anti-riot troops with shields patrolled Havana in
armored vehicles (especially the Old Havana, Guanabacoa and Tenth of
October neighborhoods), leaving the population with a sinister,
frightening and evocative vision of what could happen if there were ever
a repeat of a previous protest.

*Translator's note: On July 13, 1989 a high-profile general, a former
head of the Cuban Interior Ministry and two senior military officers
were executed by firing squad after having been convicted by a military
tribunal of drug trafficking and treason. Several of their associates
received long prison sentences.
