La salud de los hermanos Fidel Batista Leyva, Anairis y Adairis Miranda Leyva se deteriora tras cumplir este lunes 21 días de huelga de hambre en la provincia de Holguín, según declaró a 14ymedio su madre Maydolis Leyva Portelles.

Miembros del Movimiento Cubano Reflexión, los tres hermanos experimentan “un grave deterioro” de salud.

En conversación telefónica, Leyva denunció el trato “cruel e inhumano” que ha recibido por parte de la policía política que no le permite ver a sus hijas gemelas, una de ellas ingresada en el Hospital General Universitario Vladimir Ilich Lenin de Holguín y la otra en el Hospital Clínico Quirúrgico Lucía Iñiguez Landín.

“Todos los pacientes tienen derecho que a las dos de la tarde les dejen ver a los familiares pero a mí me han dicho que hasta que mis hijas no depongan la huelga no las puedo ver” afirma la madre.[[QUOTE:“Todos los pacientes tienen derecho que a las dos de la tarde les dejen ver a los familiares pero a mí me han dicho que hasta que mis hijas no depongan la huelga no las puedo ver”]]14ymedio contactó telefónicamente al Hospital Lenin y pudo comprobar con el buró de Información que Anairis Miranda está internada en la sala de terapia intermedia, en la cama 2. Fuentes médicas reportan su estado como "grave".

La enfermera que se encontraba de guardia en la sala de terapia intermedia explicó que Adairis Miranda, hermana de Anairis, "no está reportada de grave", pero que continúa en “inanición voluntaria”.

 Leyva explica que su hijo está recluido en la prisión holguinera Cuba Sí donde este lunes cumple 21 días de días de huelga de hambre y cinco de sed.

“A pesar de la prolongada huelga lo mantienen en una celda de castigo durmiendo en el suelo”, dice su madre.

Los tres hermanos se encontraban cumpliendo penas de un año acusados el delito de desorden público y otro de difamación de héroes y mártires. Las autoridades los acusan de haber “hecho una provocación” el pasado 27 de noviembre, durante los días de duelo nacional por la muerte del expresidente Fidel Castro, una acusación que los tres niegan.[[QUOTE:Los huelguistas exigen la “libertad incondicional para los 10 presos políticos del Movimiento Cubano Reflexión” y la “absolución” del doctor Eduardo Cardet del Movimiento Cristiano Liberación]]Posteriormente los activistas fueron víctimas de un acto de repudio con allanamiento de su inmueble, golpes, y robo de propiedades personales que concluyó con el arresto de los tres hermanos.

Las gemelas Miranda Leyva fueron recluidas en la Prisión Provincial de Mujeres, mientras que Batista Leyva se encontraba prisionero en el Campamento de Trabajo La Ladrillera, desde donde fue trasladado hacia Cuba Sí, una penitenciaría con un régimen más severo.

Los huelguistas exigen la “libertad incondicional para los 10 presos políticos del Movimiento Cubano Reflexión” y la “absolución” del doctor Eduardo Cardet del Movimiento Cristiano Liberación.

El opositor Librado Linares que preside el Movimiento Cubano Reflexión aseguró a 14ymedio que los hermanos están presos “injustamente”.

"Los responsables por su vida se ubican al más alto nivel, desde Raúl Castro hasta las autoridades del Ministerio del Interior en la provincia por haberlos lanzado a esta situación", afirmó Linares.

El Torneo Internacional de bádminton Giraldilla ya tiene ganador y lleva en su atuendo los colores de Cuba. El atleta Osleni Guerrero ascendió a lo más alto del podio en esta XVIII edición del certamen que concluyó este domingo en la Ciudad Deportiva de La Habana. Es la sexta ocasión consecutiva que obtiene una medalla en esta cita.

La victoria de Guerrero no sorprendió a nadie, mucho menos a su madre, a quien considera su “fanática número uno” y que atesora en la sala de su casa todos los trofeos anteriores. Medallista de plata y bronce en los Juegos Panamericanos de Guadalajara 2011 y Toronto 2015, Guerrero no competía internacionalmente desde los Juegos Olímpicos de Río de Janeiro.

 Su aplastante victoria (2-0, con doble score de 21-15 ) frente al número uno del evento, el italiano Rosario Maddaloni, le permitió acumular 2.500 puntos lo que renueva sus esperanzas de regresar al ranking mundial con una mejor posición. Un listado en el que llegó a estar en el número 50 pero bajó hasta el 170 que tiene  en la actualidad.[[QUOTE:La victoria de Guerrero no sorprendió a nadie, mucho menos a su madre, a quien considera su “fanática número uno” y que atesora en la sala de su casa todos los trofeos anteriores]]Cuando todavía saboreaba su victoria en el single, Guerrero participó en la modalidad de dobles en combinación con su compatriota Leodannis Martínez donde también se alzó con el oro, luego de vencer a los italianos Lukas Osele-Kevin Strobl por 2-1 (21-11, 22-24 y 21-8).

El propio Martínez se asoció luego a la cubana Taimara Oropeza en el doble mixto para incrementar la cosecha de oro, al vencer a la pareja guatemalteca de Jonathan Solís y Mariana Paiz. La Isla aseguró también par de medallas de bronce, por intermedio de Oropeza y Ángel Herrera en los singles femenino y masculino, respectivamente.

En la competencia femenina individual, donde se inscribieron 22 deportistas, la húngara Laura Sarosi, 138 en el ranking mundial dio la razón a quienes la consideraban favorita, al obtener la medalla dorada luego de derrotar a la mexicana Mariana Ugalde por marcador de 2-0 .

La cita habanera de los volantes y las raquetas contó esta vez con 63 jugadores de Cuba, Estados Unidos, México, Guatemala, Panamá, Jamaica, República Dominicana, Trinidad y Tobago, Gales, Italia y Hungría.

El próximo compromiso del bádminton cubano tendrá lugar también en La Habana, durante el Campeonato Panamericano individual, categorizado como Grand Prix, que se jugará en abril. Posteriormente los atletas nacionales se presentarán en los Juegos Centroamericanos y del Caribe del 2018, en la urbe colombiana de Barranquilla.

A Month Without Machado Ventura

14ymedio, Reinaldo Escobar, Havana, 27 March 2017 — Just a month ago his
face disappeared from the Cuban government's family photo. The last time
he was seen, Vice President José Ramón Machado Ventura handed out orders
in an extensive agricultural area of ​​Pinar del Río. Four weeks later,
no official media has offered an explanation for the absence of the
second most powerful man on the island.

Now 86, this man born in Villa Clara's San Antonio de las Vueltas, has
stood behind Raul Castro for more than five years, in his position as
the second secretary of the Cuban Communist Party (PCC), which the
Constitution of the Republic consecrates as the "the highest leading
force of society and the State."

The man who was never absent from our television screens and newspaper
pages for more than 48 hours has failed to appear since 27 February. An
absence that feeds rumors among a people accustomed to giving more
importance to a lack of news than to the news itself. But above all, it
is a disappearance that comes at a bad time for the Plaza of the Revolution.

It is less than a year before Raúl Castro leaves his office as president
and every day the uncertainty of who will relieve him in his post
increases. Machado Ventura's departure from the game would force the
hurried naming of a second secretary of the PCC and put a face to one of
the most jealously guarded mysteries of recent years.

The next few weeks could be of momentous importance for clearing up this
question. If the first vice-president, Miguel Díaz-Canel, assumes the
second position in the Party it will prolong the tradition of
concentrating in a single person the highest positions in the
country. To choose among other names, such as Bruno Rodríguez, Lázaro
Expósito or Salvador Valdés Mesa, could open a bicephalic route,
unprecedented in communist regimes.

For decades, all power was concentrated in Fidel Castro, who placed his
brother in the rearguard of his countless positions. In 2006, already
with serious health problems, the Maximum Leader had to step away from
public life and Raúl Castro inherited that conglomerate of faculties
that placed him at the head of the Party and the State.

Nevertheless, during the Raul era "second positions" have
bifurcated. The first vice-president is no longer the same person as the
second secretary of the PPC, among other reasons so that no one person
could completely replace the General-President. A measure of protection,
but also an evidence of the lack of confidence of the historical
generation in its relief team.

In this new structure, Machado Ventura remained second in the
Party. Machadito, as his friends call him, has cultivated a public image
as the ayatollah and custodian of ideological purity. An orthodoxy that
in the Cuban case does not cling to the dogmas of Marxism-Leninism but
to the voluntarist* doctrine of Fidelismo.

Analysts blame this iron-fisted goalkeeper's presence at the top of the
pyramid on Fidel Castro's express wish, placing him behind his brother
to prevent the latter from veering from the path. This is how a man who
once qualified in medicine became, according to Soviet terminology in
the times of perestroika, the "braking mechanism" on the reforms Raul
Castro might have pushed.

Machado Ventura earned his reputation for immobility through
prohibitions and punishments. He was in charge of leading the provincial
assemblies prior to the last Communist Party Congresses, confabs where
the principle agreements were hatched, the delegates chosen and where
the key points of the Party Guidelines that today are the "sacred
commandments" of Raulismo were committed to.

However, that role seems to have come to its end. The man who ordered
the dismissal of high-level cadres and for decades banned Christmas
trees in public establishments has left the scene. Missing with him are
his harangues calling for efficiency and his visits to workplaces where
he advocated greater discipline and sacrifice.

It remains possible that Machadito – the guardian of orthodoxy – will
reappear at any moment like the phoenix, and leap between the furrows to
explain to farmers how to plant sweet potatoes or arrive to instruct
the engineers of some industry how to make better use of their
resources. The followers of the hard line would receive that return with
relief.

Translator's note: Voluntarism is the view that revolutionaries can
change society by means of will, irrespective of economic conditions.

An Unfortunate Article / Fernando Dámaso

Fernando Damaso, 26 March 2017 — In a mis-timed article, a journalist
from the newspaper Juventud Rebelde (Rebel Youth), a self-proclaimed
Cuban youth, visits Hiroshima and unleashes her personal feeling about
the events of 6 August 1945. She says she "is pained," that "August in
Hiroshima is forever" and shocked that a survivor, after the passage of
71 years, bears no grudge, and that "in Japan forgiveness is
long-overdue subject."

Then, instead of understanding that forgiveness is a sign of wisdom, she
speaks about "the fiery blood of Cubans," and says "it is hard to
understand it."

She's right: We Cubans lack the wisdom necessary to forgive, and what's
more, to ask for forgiveness. To forgive and to ask for forgiveness are
pending subjects here, despite the fact that our mambises — the original
freedom fighters of a previous century — at the end of a real war, knew
how to forgive.

These last 58 years are filled with bad examples. In Cuba hatred has
overcome love, even though Jose Marti made it very clear that love
builds and hatred destroys. The problem is that the example of Marti is
used according to political convenience: one part of his thinking is
manipulated and published and the other is hidden.

The journalist, to ride the wave, goes even further and addresses the
visit and words of President Obama, when he was here. She says, "But
that a victim of the Holocaust leans on his words to talk about the most
painful moment? That's more than I can stand."

Despite everything, I understand it: if she were not spiteful, filled
with hatred and a practitioner of intolerance, it would be very
difficult for her to write for Juventud Rebelde.

It is striking that "at this stage of the game," when it is already lost
and it will end very soon, instead of drawing useful conclusions from
her visit, she shows herself to be so dogmatic. These are times to
forgive and not to accumulate rancor and historical hatreds that, as can
be seen, contribute absolutely nothing: Cuba is an example.

You have to know how to "turn the page" and not get stuck in the past.
Japan demonstrates this with its spectacular development without losing
its national dignity. It would be wise to learn from them.

Evangelical Churches Booming In Cuba Amid Tensions
March 27, 2017 7:47 AM

HAVANA (CBSMiami/AP) — Fidel Castro's government punished Rev. Juan
Francisco Naranjo and sent him to two years of work camp for preaching
in Cuba where atheism was law. For years, Naranjo's church was almost
abandoned, with just a handful of people daring to attend services.

Naranjo died in 2000 but on a recent Sunday, his William Carey Baptist
Church was packed and noisy. Government doctors treated disabled
children at a clinic inside. A Bible study group discussed Scripture in
one corner of the building before a service attended by 200 of the faithful.

"In the 1960s, the few brothers and sisters who came here had to hide
their Bibles in brown-paper covers," said Esther Zulueta, a 57-year-old
doctor. "It's night and day."

Trump administration officials have repeatedly said religious freedom is
one of the key demands they will make of Cuba when they finish reviewing
former President Barack Obama's opening with the island. The
administration has never been more specific, but outside groups have
accused Cuba of systematically repressing the island's growing ranks of
evangelicals and other Protestants with acts including the seizure of
hundreds of churches across the island, followed by the demolition of many.

An Associated Press examination has found a more complicated picture.
Pastors and worshippers say Cuba is in the middle of a boom in
evangelical worship, with tens of thousands of Cubans worshipping
unmolested across the island each week.

While the government now recognizes freedom of religion, it doesn't
grant the right to build churches or other religious structures. It has
demolished a handful of churches in recent years, but allowed their
members to continue meeting in makeshift home sanctuaries. And like the
Roman Catholic Church, the island's dominant denomination, evangelical
churches have begun providing social services once monopolized by the
Communist government.

"There's a revival of these churches, of the most diverse denominations
in the country, and all of them are growing, not just in the number of
members, but in their capacity to lead and act in society," said
Presbyterian pastor Joel Ortega Dopica, president of Council of Churches
of Cuba, an officially recognized association of 32 Protestant
denominations. "There is religious freedom in Cuba."

Clergy and academics say Cuba's 11 million people include some 40,000
Methodists, 100,000 Baptists and 120,000 members of the Assemblies of
God, which had roughly 10,000 members in the early 1990s, when Cuba
began easing restrictions on public expressions of religious faith. The
church council estimates there are about 25,000 evangelical and other
Protestant houses of worship across the country. About 60 percent of the
population is baptized Catholic, with many also following Afro-Cuban
syncretic traditions such as Santeria.

Naranjo was part of that opening. After the work camp, he returned to a
church whose worshippers were barred from many state jobs. A thaw began
in 1984 when visiting American civil rights activist Jesse Jackson
stunned Cuba by taking Fidel Castro to a Protestant church service. In
1990, Naranjo was among a group of pastors who met with Castro to push
for a greater freedom, and his own church worked on building ties
between religious groups and the Communist Party.

The opening culminated in the 1998 visit of Pope John Paul II, which led
to new liberties for both Catholic and Protestant worshippers.

The Cuban constitution now recognizes freedom of religion, but the law
is silent on the issue of church construction. In a system where the
government has long monopolized public life, virtually all activities
are presumed illegal unless the law says otherwise. Authorities in some
areas have prohibited new churches, even as they allow worship in
religious buildings erected before Cuba's 1959 revolution.

The London-based advocacy group Christian Solidarity Worldwide issued a
report alleging the Cuban government committed 2,380 violations of
religious liberty in 2016, most linked to the declaration of 2,000
Assemblies of God churches as illegal, with 1,400 in process of
confiscation. The group says it based that information on a source
inside Cuba whom it would not name.

Juan Whitaker, the Assemblies of God's treasurer in Cuba, told The
Associated Press this month that none of its churches had been declared
illegal or were at risk of confiscation.

David Ellis, regional director for Latin America and Caribbean for world
missions of the Missouri-based General Council of the Assemblies of God,
told the AP, "We are in ongoing contact with the Cuba Assemblies of God
leadership and they have not reported any churches being confiscated.
Neither have they reported that churches have been threatened with
confiscation."

Kiri Kankhwende, a spokeswoman for Christian Solidarity Worldwide, said
its assessment hadn't changed and any statement to the contrary could be
explained by official pressure on churches in Cuba.

Christian Solidarity has also cited the case of Juan Carlos Nunez, a
minister in the Apostolic Movement in the eastern city of Las Tunas,
while other religious freedom advocates have cited the case of Bernardo
de Quesada, in the eastern city of Camaguey, as examples of religious
persecution.

Both men told the AP that churches they built in the yards of their
homes were demolished by the government because they were constructed
without permits. Both continue leading services inside their homes,
where hundreds of worshippers gather each week.

"They tolerate me, but they don't accept me," said de Quesada. "I'm not
shutting up or leaving. We have passion and no one will stop us."

Nunez said he was sentenced to a year of house arrest after neighbors
complained about speakers he set up to boost the sound of services in
his home. He blamed the situation on the vague status of new churches in
Cuban law.

"If there were a law on church activities, none of this would happen and
everything would be clear," he said.

Even so, churches are working on projects that once would have been
forbidden to them, including efforts on AIDS prevention, sustainable
agriculture, renewable energy, medicine distribution, training of farm
workers and disaster relief.

"The Cuban authorities have understood the necessity of our presence and
dialogue with the government, which still continues, even if we don't
always agree," said the Rev. Dorilin Tito, a 38-year-old pastor at
William Carey Baptist Church.

The best way to appreciate how that Cuba's economy today depends on the US more than ever before in its history is to engage in a very simple mental exercise: imagine that Washington banned travel, remittances and packages to the island, except for medicines and special visits by Cubans to see very sick relatives.
