Alice Walker Sister Assata: This Is What American History Looks Like

Mariela Castro: Socialism with Discrimination is Inconceivable
We cannot believe that by eliminating homophobia we would be eliminating the problem of discrimination in Cuban society. We need to eradicate the trend, the archaic model of an exploitative society that makes up parameters to establish differences and inequalities. We cannot keep on reproducing these.

This is why the educational work we do is aimed at transforming our consciousness, our culture. I hope that at some point our conga against homophobia that is danced along our main avenues becomes a tradition. We’ll have to make it more artistic, find better ideas to make it richer as a cultural option, so that perhaps it becomes a historical tradition and one day, when there is no longer homophobia in Cuba, somebody would say, “remember when in Cuba this was done because there was discrimination and this conga was danced to call people’s attention to the need to eradicate homophobia!”…

Havana, Cuba, November 2005

Cuban young militant Elian Gonzalez delivers a speech during an event marking the 80th anniversary of the birth of the Cuban National hero, Argentinean Ernesto "Che" Guevara in Havana, Saturday, June 14, 2008. Gonzalez, the Cuban boy at the center of an international custody battle eight years ago, has joined Cuba's Young Communist Union. Communist youth newspaper Juventud Rebelde quotes Elian Gonzalez as saying he will never let down ex-President Fidel Castro and his brother Raul Castro, who succeeded Fidel earlier this year.

Famous for his endurance, he could recuperate and live to contend
with an eleventh US President and, who knows, a twelfth. Or not.
The irony is, it doesn't matter if Fidel Castro dies, because he already
has achieved a kind of immortality. History may or may not
absolve him--it depends on who writes the history--but he will not disappear,
any more than Che Guevara did. He will remain as an inevitable
point of reference for revolutionaries, including those who have
participated in the unprecedented political realignment of the
past few years in Latin America, and as an indispensable boogeyman
for the right.
