Tsunami Survivor Raudhatul Jannah Found Alive 10 Years Later

A girl thought to have died in the Indian Ocean tsunami has been reunited with her family after being found alive nearly a decade later, her parents said Friday. Raudhatul Jannah was just four when she was swept away as the disaster struck Indonesia on Boxing Day in 2004. After a month, her relatives assumed she was among the more than 230,000 killed. But in June, her brother spotted someone who appeared to be his long-lost sister walking down the street, according to German news agency DPA.
Now 14 years old, Jannah was being raised by an elderly woman, named Maryam, almost 80 miles south of her family. She now lives with her biological parents, father Septi Rangkuti and mother Jamaliah. "This is a miracle from God," her mother told DPA. Her relatives do not plan to carry out a DNA test. "It's a mother's instinct," Jamaliah Jannah told Reuters. “I knew she was the one and we also saw her photos from childhood when we picked her up, that's her."

Condenan en Bolivia a Cubana de Aviación por llevar ilegalmente a Cuba a una niña

Un juez boliviano condenó a la aerolínea Cubana de Aviación “al resarcimiento tanto del daño moral como económico” por transportar en 2006 a una niña de cuatro años desde Santa Cruz a La Habana sin el permiso de su padre, que tenía su tutela legal, ni de las autoridades bolivianas.
El demandante asegura ─aunque no aparece implicado legalmente en el caso─ que el delito fue cometido con la colaboración del Embajador de Cuba, Rafael Dausá, uno de los más curtidos diplomáticos del castrismo.
Según reporta el diario español El País, el juez Mario Gandarillas ha puesto punto final a un proceso de más de cinco años (2008-2014) al declarar probada la demanda de responsabilidad civil contra Cubana de Aviación presentada por el padre, Manuel Rodríguez ─ciudadano boliviano-español─ por el traslado de su hija Manuela del Carmen en un vuelo de cooperación humanitaria de la línea aérea estatal cubana, el 27 de septiembre de 2006.
En las próximas semanas se darían a conocer los daños económicos que deberá pagar Cubana de Aviación al demandante.
Desde septiembre de 2006 Rodríguez se ha visto separado de su hija pese a sus múltiples gestiones con la madre y sus familiares, con diplomáticos bolivianos, españoles y cubanos, contactos políticos, peticiones judiciales, mediación de la Iglesia católica, y denuncias ante los medios de comunicación.
Manuelita tenía cuatro años cuando fue llevada ilegalmente a Cuba por su madre, la médico Ivette Velaz Saba, y su abuela, Guadalupe Saba. La doctora Velaz Saba es cubana nacionalizada boliviana, e hija adoptiva, según varias fuentes, de un ex dignatario del gobierno de Fidel Castro.
Manuel Rodríguez asegura que esto ocurrió bajo el amparo de la embajada de Cuba en La Paz, y acusa directamente al entonces embajador Dausá.

¿"Valija" diplomática?

La niña Manuela Rodríguez fue sacada ilegalmente de Bolivia por su madre, una médico cubana, cuando tenía cuatro años. Hoy debe tener 12 años.
La niña Manuela Rodríguez fue sacada ilegalmente de Bolivia por su madre, una médico cubana, cuando tenía cuatro años. Hoy debe tener 12 años.
No existe registro oficial en Migración de Bolivia sobre la salida ese día de la pequeña ni de su madre y abuela, pese a que uno de los documentos de rutina en estos casos es el llamado flujo migratorio, donde se registra el nombre del viajero, la fecha de salida, la aerolínea y el destino final.
“En un informe se constata que el vuelo llegó de Cuba a Bolivia transportando medicamentos. Hay evidencia de que el embajador (Dausá) estaba allí. Estamos seguros que gestionó con su investidura diplomática el ingreso de mi hija al avión burlando todos los procedimientos requeridos por la norma boliviana”, afirma Rodríguez.
El vuelo que llevó a la menor de Santa Cruz a La Habana en septiembre de 2006 no tenía permiso legal de las autoridades bolivianas para operar con pasajeros ajenos al programa, pues se trataba de un vuelo de cooperación humanitaria internacional, destinado al transporte de medicamentos y personal cubano.
Las aerolíneas comerciales autorizadas a operar en Bolivia están obligadas por ley a requerir la autorización de viaje de menores firmada por un juez de la Niñez, en caso de no viajar acompañados por ambos padres.

Evidencia cubana y otras pistas

El diplomático cubano ha negado como “absolutamente falso” cualquier involucramiento, pero la fotocopia de un informe del Departamento de Inmigración de Cuba, facilitado de forma extraoficial tras una investigación realizada en la isla, fue incluida en el dossier de Rodríguez.
El embajador de Cuba en Bolivia, Rafael Dausá (c), y su esposa (i), celebran con el presidente Evo Morales.

El documento certifica la llegada a La Habana del embajador Dausá y su esposa, Mercedes de Armas, el 27 de septiembre de 2006, el mismo día y en el mismo vuelo no comercial –a bordo de un IL-62 de Cubana─ en que viajaron las mujeres y Manuelita, tal y como aparece en el listado de pasajeros.
Rodríguez cree que Dausá  abordó el vuelo para facilitar el acceso de su hija a Cuba, aprovechando su condición diplomática.

Rafael Dausá Céspedes es uno de los más experimentados diplomáticos cubanos. Ha sido viceministro de Relaciones Exteriores, dirigido la división de Estados Unidos y Canadá del MINREX y ocupado cargos en la misión de Cuba en la ONU y la Sección de Intereses de Cuba en Washington. Encabezó las charlas migratorias periódicas con Estados Unidos en 2002 y 2003.
Según el padre de la niña, también habría estado involucrado en los trámites previos para que su hija accediera al vuelo de Cubana de Aviación el representante legal en Bolivia de esa aerolínea.
Otros indicios presentador por el Sr. Rodríguez incluyen una confirmación facilitada por la empresa local de telecomunicaciones ─en respuesta a un requerimiento fiscal─ de llamadas telefónicas entre su esposa y cinco números que corresponden a la Embajada cubana, a la residencia del embajador en La Paz, y a teléfonos móviles privados del dilplomático, en los días previos al viaje de las dos mujeres con la niña.
Las tres viajaron en un vuelo comercial de Cochabamba al aeropuerto santacruceño de Viru Viru, donde abordaron el avión de Cubana.

Peticiones engavetadas

Después de reiteradas objeciones de la cónsul cubana, Oneida Baró, la justicia boliviana hizo llegar a La Habana hace varios meses dos exhortos suplicatorios en relación con el caso de Manuelita Rodríguez a través del Ministerio de Asuntos Exteriores de Bolivia.
Uno de ellos solicita a las autoridades judiciales de la isla que notifiquen a Ivette Velaz y a su madre, Guadalupe Saba, sobre el proceso judicial abierto por la sustracción y retención indebida de una menor de edad.
También se pretende que la madre reporte sobre la situación de la pequeña, cuya custodia fue asignada al padre por una juez de familia al término del juicio de divorcio en Cochabamba.
La Embajada de Cuba informó el pasado 4 de junio a la dirección jurídica de la cancillería boliviana que los exhortos "se encuentran en proceso de tramitación, respectivamente, en el Tribunal Supremo Popular y en la Fiscalía General de la República".

La madre fue investigada

La patria potestad de la pequeña fue entregada al padre durante el juicio de divorcio, ante la existencia de certificados médicos que constataban inestabilidad emocional por parte de la madre, como consecuencia de un persistente consumo de estupefacientes.
Los fiscales antidroga comenzaron una investigación sobre la conducta antijurídica de la doctora Ivette Velaz, bajo sospecha de consumo, tráfico, suministro y tenencia de sustancias controladas, delitos tipificados en la ley antidroga del país del altiplano.
“Nada ni nadie me va devolver los años perdidos sin Manuelita. Tampoco ella va a recobrar nada; ha tenido que crecer sin mi cariño, sin mi apoyo emocional, y económico también”, se quejó Manuel Rodríguez al matutino madrileño.

China's Massive Female Abortions Tied to Violent Crime by Unmarried Males

China’s one-child policy, instituted in 1979, has made it the most gender-imbalanced country in the world, with 117.78 boys for every 100 girls. Since the Chinese culture traditionally favors males, massive numbers of female babies have been aborted. 

While the policy is blamed for societal flaws such as a depressed “real exchange rate,” which damages the global economy, and a reduction in the labor force, perhaps the most disturbing outcome of having significantly more boys than girls is an increase in violent crimes.
Writing at the New Republic, Elizabeth Winkler reports that, in 2012, the Chinese government estimated that China had 40 million more males than females, with the difference growing larger each year.
While the country claims a reduction in the gender imbalance is a national priority, largely due to economic reasons, China, and much of the media, gloss over the fact that its one-child policy has been one of the great human rights atrocities in world history. As BBC.com reports, in 2000, for example, 90 percent of aborted babies were reportedly female.
Winkler writes that the resulting “gender imbalance” has likely led to the increase in China’s violent crimes.
In a recent study published in Asian Population Studies, economists Jane Golley and Rod Tyers determined that the higher number of males in China has led to excessive savings since families with boys are competing to match up their sons with girls, who are scarce. However, the investigators also found climbing rates of crime among unmarried males.
Projecting outward to 2030 using a global dynamic model, the researchers find “the proportion of unmatched unskilled Chinese men of reproductive age could be as high as one in four by that time.”
They write:
Policies to rebalance the sex ratio at birth will take decades to reduce the sex ratio at reproductive age and any associated allowance for higher fertility would slow growth in real per capita income. Yet our results suggest that more than offsetting gains could accrue from productivity improvements stemming from reduced crime.
The researchers tap into previous research that has determined that China’s crime rate has indeed doubled over the last two decades.
A March 2010 article in The Economist observes:
China alone stands to have as many unmarried young men—“bare branches,” as they are known—as the entire population of young men in America. In any country rootless young males spell trouble; in Asian societies, where marriage and children are the recognised routes into society, single men are almost like outlaws. Crime rates, bride trafficking, sexual violence, even female suicide rates are all rising and will rise further as the lopsided generations reach their maturity.
Additionally, George J. Gilboy and Eric Heginbotham, writing at Foreign Affairs in October 2010, noted that China’s economy has continued to grow and its per capita income increased as it has repealed taxes and invested in infrastructure and a social safety net; nonetheless, social tensions have grown more pronounced.
The authors write:
The Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS) estimates that incidents of social unrest have risen from about 40,000 in 2001 to “over 90,000” in 2009. CASS also reports that these incidents are becoming larger, more violent, more likely to cross provincial borders, and more diverse in terms of participants and grievances.
A 2008 study in Social Science Research Network links the increase in crime and violent behavior in China to the scarcity of females. The research indicates that crime rates almost doubled in the nation between 1992 and 2004, the same period in which sex ratios (males to females) in the age grouping of 16-25 years, which is characterized by a tendency toward crime, rose dramatically from 1.053 to 1.093.
The study found that "a 0.01 increase in the sex ratio raised the violent and property crime rates by some 5-6%, suggesting that the increasing maleness of the young adult population may account for as much as a third of the overall rise in crime."
As Winkler observes, anthropological studies confirm what instinctively seems true—that in cultures with excessive men, males tend to engage in risky, “wife-seeking” behavior. When the size of the pool of unmarried men is reduced and “normative monogamy” occurs more often, rates for rape, murder, assault, robbery, and fraud are all reduced.

Media Get Disappointing Look at TX and AZ Illegal Immigrant Detention Centers

breitbart

TUSCON, Arizona--Wednesday, June 18, marked the first day since over a thousand unaccompanied alien children (UACs) were shipped from south Texas to Nogales, Arizona ten days ago that reporters were allowed to see the inside of the Border Patrol holding facility, and the immigrants themselves. But this was not meant to be the dropping of the DHS veil that has opaquely covered the process by which these minors have been transferred, housed, processed, and subsequently released. Although reporters were impacted by finally seeing the UACs in confinement with their own eyes, they still left after a very short time feeling like they didn’t get the whole story.

Investigative reporter Michel Marizco from local Tucson news station KVOA tweeted a photo of about twenty journalists waiting to enter the Border Patrol holding facility. Then he tweeted, “But there’s a catch. Nobody from @DHSgov here is authorized to answer any questions. Meaning little context to what you’ll see today.” Just like elected officials before them, journalists were not allowed to bring in cell phones or electronic recording devices. Photojournalist Nick Oza tweeted, “Lots of media but no access; only pen and paper is allowed.”
Chris Sherman and Astrid Galván from the Associated Press were the first journalists to post a story about the visit. They described a clean but sad state of affairs inside: “Children’s faces pressed against glass. Hundreds of young boys and girls covered with aluminum foil-like blankets next to chain-link fences. The pungent odor that comes with keeping dirty travelers in close quarters.” They explained the minors were being kept inside a huge warehouse and segregated by age and gender with chain-link fences. They were being fed every six hours in groups of 200, and showering regularly with FEMA-provided facilities.
The moods of the UACs varied, according to journalists’ observations. Some were playing with a ball outside, others were sitting quietly, and some were crying. No one was allowed to speak to the detained minors. Sherman said via Twitter that officials wanted to make as little disruption as possible. His walkthrough at the Brownsville facility lasted little longer than ten minutes. Galván said her group of reporters in Nogales were strongly warned against speaking to anyone, and they were followed closely by Border Patrol agents. Her visit lasted less than half an hour. When asked if they learned anything really new, Galván just replied that there’s definitely “something to be said about seeing something first-hand instead of hearing about it from someone else.” Sherman said he got a “better sense of the efforts that have been made and why the law says they need to be sent to HHS in 72 hours.”
One journalist, however, was able to sneak in a few words with some teenagers out of sight of monitoring agents. Jon Justice from 104.1 KQTH in Tucson, AZ said via Twitter that many of the kids didn’t seem completely unhappy with being in the detention facility. When asked if it was because they were in a safe place and being fed better than they’re used to, he replied, “Actually its because they were headed to NY, New Jersey and Maine to meet family and knew they would be going soon, for free.” Justice added, “From the kids and what the agents were saying, most came for some type of ‘amnesty’ not because of conditions in Central [America].” 104.1 KQTH posted several photos—provided to them by one official photographer on site—on the station’s website.
Justice, the conservative radio talk show host of The Jon Justice Show, was deeply affected by the experience. “I immediately got a different perspective on the humanitarian part of it,” he said. “It doesn’t mean that I’ve changed my views as far as wanting to stop the flow of these individuals coming into the country, or enforcing our laws. But it certainly brought up some conflicts within me of, seeing the faces, looking at the children, and getting a better understanding of what we’re dealing with.”
But not everyone has been prohibited from making contact with the minors. Juanita Molina, director of the humanitarian organization Border Action Network (BAN), shared her visit to the Nogales facility with the Tucson Weekly. She explained that because her organization has such a close relationship with the Border Patrol’s Tucson Sector, she “was invited to tour the Nogales facility and participate in a discussion and evaluation process based on [their] shared values.” Molina also said, “As a humanitarian organization, BAN supports the ACLU in its action to bring light to the violations against unaccompanied minors in detention.”
While the Border Patrol and the Border Action Network may seem like strange bedfellows, Molina had generally kind words for the operation of the facility. She said that the agents were doing a good job of keeping the facility clean and the children fed and safe. But although their basic human needs are being met, she is concerned that agents are ill equipped to handle the emotional needs of the minors, especially since many of them have been traumatized.
But one has to ask why Molina was granted so much access—access that has been repeatedly denied to elected officials, reporters, and even church officials. Molina said her “tour and briefing lasted approximately 5 hours. [She] met with Tucson Sector Chief Manuel Padilla and the commanding officers in charge, and [she] had the opportunity to engage with all officers and ask questions at each station of the facility.” She was also “given access to the medical triage station, food preparation areas, and holding cells,” where she spoke to several children and frightened teen mothers.
Given that Molina’s organization supports the ACLU and shared her visit details with the left-leaning Tucson Weekly, one might expect a very critical picture of the situation in the Nogales holding facility, but quite the opposite was the case. The question remains if she was given completely unprecedented, extended, and exclusive access because the BAN has a “close relationship” with the Border Patrol and DHS knew they could expect a “good news” story; after all, Molina is not a journalist with certain duties and responsibilities to the craft, although one would expect her to have a critical eye. The fact remains Molina’s visit and the engaging narrative that goes with it still does nothing to truly increase the amount of transparency—or lack thereof—being displayed by DHS. Just ask any reporter who went on Wednesday’s half-hour tour.

Limbaugh: Use 'Elian Gonzalez Doctrine' on Children Illegals

Rush Limbaugh and one of his callers suggested that the Obama administration could resolve the crisis of children flooding over the southern border by reverting back to the “Elian Gonzalez doctrine.” Limbaugh pointed out that the Clinton administration “moved heaven and earth to return one kid to a Communist country” when Cuban refugee Elian Gonzalez was staying with his family in Florida, and “couldn’t wait to send this kid back.”

Back in 2000, armed Border Patrol agents stormed the house Gonzalez was staying in to take custody of the child and send him back to Cuba, while the current administration has promised to get lawyers for the children who have illegally entered the United States.

3-D Printed Hand Lets Haitian Boy Play Catch for First Time

NBC News.com
A 12-year-old boy born without fingers has become Haiti's first recipient of a 3-D printed prosthesis, enabling him to play catch with his friends for the first time.
Stevenson Joseph, who has lived at an orphanage since he was abandoned at the age of 3, had little hope of treatment in a country where programs for the disabled are rare.
But after he met John Marshall, a software engineer on a mission trip to Haiti for Florida-based Food for the Poor, his prospects changed. After months of work to perfect the design, a 3-D prosthesis was fitted to his left hand last month.
"It is a great hand," Stevenson says, ticking off his list of accomplishments. "Now I can take a balloon with it. I can score at basketball. I can hold a TV remote and push my friends on their wheelchairs. I can hold a water bottle, a bag. I like it a lot."

Aborted Babies Burned for Electric Power in USA

A shocking admission from authorities in Victoria, British Columbia reveals that the remains of aborted babies are disposed of in the US and sent to a facility that burns waste to provide electric power for Oregon residents.

According to LifeSiteNews, The British Columbia Health Ministry confirmed that biomedical waste is shipped to the U.S. for destruction. Such waste includes "human tissue, such as surgically removed cancerous tissue, amputated limbs, and fetal tissue."
"Kristan Mitchell, executive director of the Oregon Refuse and Recycling Association, told the B.C. Catholic that the 'biomedical waste' likely ends up at the Covanta Marion waste-to-energy facility in Oregon since it is the only facility that uses waste to power the grid," LifeSiteNews reports.
The Oregon Refuse and Recycling Association also confirmed the reports.
The facility reportedly burns 800 tons of medical waste a year, turning it into electric power for homes and businesses.
This new report comes only a month after it was revealed that 15,500 aborted babies were incinerated to provide power for Britain's NHS hospitals.

Rare Birth Defects Still Spiking in Washington State


Image: Baby receives treatment for spina bifida 
James Cheng / for NBC News
Olivia Jackman of Ellensburg, Wash., was born with spina bifida last fall and is considered part of a cluster of neural tube defects in the area that includes the fatal defect, anencephaly.

Seven cases of a rare fatal birth defect were reported in a remote region of Washington state in 2013, making it the fourth consecutive year that rates have more than tripled the national average, health officials said Tuesday.
There’s still no clear reason for the spike in anencephaly, a severe defect in which babies are born missing parts of the brain or skull, according to a statement from Washington state health officials. NBC News investigated the issue in February.
The rate jumped to 8.7 cases per 10,000 births in the area that includes Yakima, Benton and Franklin counties in eastern Washington state, far exceeding the national anencephaly rate of 2.1 cases per 10,000 births.
State officials, working in conjunction with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, say they plan to convene an advisory committee to review options for investigation and prevention — and they’ll hold “listening sessions” in the community to hear more about public concerns about problems in the region.
That hardly seems like enough, said one mother whose baby was born with spina bifida last year and was considered part of a cluster of cases of neural tube defects in the region.
“It’s good that they want to know everybody’s thoughts, but what are they doing about it?” said Andrea Jackman, 30, who lived in an orchard in Yakima, Wash., while she was pregnant but now lives in Ellensburg. Her daughter, Olivia, is 7 months old.
“Why are they going to put the time and money into chatting with people who don’t know? Do the research.”
The new count follows a report last summer that found more than two dozen cases of babies born with anencephaly and other neural tube defects in the region between 2010 and 2013.
Medical records indicate low rates of folic acid vitamin supplementation in the region, which has been linked to anencephaly. Other studies have shown ties between the defect and exposure to molds and pesticides. Critics have said state and federal officials need to do detailed interviews and a thorough investigation of the eastern Washington cluster.
Many local residents are convinced that leaking tanks of nuclear waste from the region’s nearby Hanford nuclear plant must be to blame, but Dr. Edith Cheng, a University Washington Medicine expert on birth defects, said there has not been a good evaluation of the plant’s impact on anencephaly or other problems.
Experts emphasize the need for all women of childbearing age to take folic acid supplements.

'Bizarre' Cluster of Severe Birth Defects Stuns Health Experts

Image: Mystery_Birth_Defects
James Cheng / for NBC News/ Andrea Jackman comforts her 4-month-old daughter, Olivia, after her MRI scan at Seattle Children's Hospital.
A mysterious cluster of severe birth defects in rural Washington state is confounding health experts, who say they can find no cause, even as reports of new cases continue to climb.
Federal and state officials won’t say how many women in a three-county area near Yakima, Wash., have had babies with anencephaly, a heart-breaking condition in which they’re born missing parts of the brain or skull. And they admit they haven't interviewed any of the women in question, or told the mothers there's a potentially widespread problem.
But as of January 2013, officials with the Washington state health department and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had counted nearly two dozen cases in three years, a rate four times the national average.
Since then, one local genetic counselor, Susie Ball of the Central Washington Genetics Program at Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital, says she has reported “eight or nine” additional cases of anencephaly and spina bifida, another birth defect in which the neural tube, which forms the brain and spine, fails to close properly.
“It does strike me as a lot,” says Ball.
And at least one Yakima mother whose baby is part of the cluster says no one told her there was a problem at all.
“I had no idea,” said Andrea Jackman, 30, whose blue-eyed daughter, Olivia, was born in September with the most severe form of spina bifida. “I honestly was really surprised that nobody had said anything. If my doctor hadn’t wanted us to see the geneticist, I wouldn’t have known.”
There’s no secret, state and CDC officials said, and they noted that small clusters of birth defects often turn out to be nothing more than sad coincidence.
The agencies released a report last summer detailing an investigation of 27 women with pregnancies that resulted in neural tube defects in Yakima, Franklin and Benton counties between 2010 and 2013. That included 23 cases of anencephaly, a rate of 8.4 per 10,000 live births, far higher than the national rate of 2.1 cases per 10,000. There were three cases of spina bifida and one with encephalocele, a sac-like protrusion of the brain through the front or back of the skull.
They publicly posted the results of the investigation in press releases and on state and federal websites. Those were picked up in news stories, including one in the local newspaper, the Yakima Herald-Republic. "State says no cause found for birth defect in Yakima County," the July headline read.
But it's not clear whether affected women saw those stories, and there was no effort to reach out to individual families, said Mandy Stahre, the CDC's Epidemic Intelligence Service Officer based in Washington state, who led the inquiry. “There were very few of us that could spend time doing this investigation,” Stahre said. “I’m not sure the women knew they were part of a cluster.”
Health officials originally were alerted to the problem by a nurse, Sara Barron, 58, who was in charge of infection control and quality assurance at Prosser Memorial Hospital, a 25-bed medical center in the farm town set on the Yakima River. A 30-year nursing veteran, she’d seen perhaps one or two devastating cases of anencephaly in her wide-ranging career.
“And now I was sitting at Prosser, with 30 deliveries a month and there’s two cases in a six-month period,” Barron said. “Then, I was talking to another doctor about it and she has a third one coming. My teeth dropped. It was like, ‘Oh my god.’”
At a regional medical meeting, there were more anecdotal reports. So Barron notified state health officials, who started looking into the problem.
“This is bizarre,” Barron said. “This is a very, very small area.”

A aquel hombre le pidieron su tiempo

para que lo juntara al tiempo de la Historia.

Le pidieron las manos,

nada hay mejor que un par de buenas manos.

Le pidieron los ojos

que alguna vez tuvieron lágrimas

para que contemplara el lado claro

(especialmente el lado claro de la vida)

porque para el horror basta un ojo de asombro.

Le pidieron sus labios

resecos y cuarteados para afirmar,

para erigir, con cada afirmación, un sueño

(el-alto-sueño);

le pidieron las piernas

duras y nudosas

(sus viejas piernas andariegas),

porque en tiempos difíciles

¿algo hay mejor que un par de piernas

para la construcción o la trinchera?

Le pidieron el bosque que lo nutrió de niño,

con su árbol obediente.

Le pidieron el pecho, el corazón, los hombros.

Le dijeron

que eso era estrictamente necesario.

Le explicaron después

que toda esta donación resultaria inútil.

sin entregar la lengua,

porque en tiempos difíciles

nada es tan útil para atajar el odio o la mentira.

Y finalmente le rogaron

que, por favor, echase a andar,

porque en tiempos difíciles

esta es, sin duda, la prueba decisiva.

Carta desde la carcel de Fidel Castro Ruz

“…después de todo, para mí la cárcel es un buen descanso, que sólo tiene de malo el que es obligatorio. Leo mucho y estudio mucho. Parece increíble, las horas pasan como si fuesen minutos y yo, que soy de temperamento intranquilo, me paso el día leyendo, apenas sin moverme para nada. La correspondencia llega normalmente…”

“…Como soy cocinero, de vez en cuando me entretengo preparando algún pisto. Hace poco me mandó mi hermana desde Oriente un pequeño jamón y preparé un bisté con jalea de guayaba. También preparo spaghettis de vez en cuando, de distintas formas, inventadas todas por mí; o bien tortilla de queso. ¡Ah! ¡Qué bien me quedan! por supuesto, que el repertorio no se queda ahí. Cuelo también café que me queda muy sabroso”.
“…En cuanto a fumar, en estos días pasados he estado rico: una caja de tabacos H. Upman del doctor Miró Cardona, dos cajas muy buenas de mi hermano Ramón….”.
“Me voy a cenar: spaghettis con calamares, bombones italianos de postre, café acabadito de colar y después un H. Upman #4. ¿No me envidias?”.
“…Me cuidan, me cuidan un poquito entre todos. No le hacen caso a uno, siempre estoy peleando para que no me manden nada. Cuando cojo el sol por la mañana en shorts y siento el aire de mar, me parece que estoy en una playa… ¡Me van a hacer creer que estoy de vacaciones! ¿Qué diría Carlos Marx de semejantes revolucionarios?”.

Liborio

Liborio
A la puerta de la gloria está San Pedro sentado y ve llegar a su lado a un hombre de cierta historia. No consigue hacer memoria y le pregunta con celo: ¿Quién eras allá en el suelo? Era Liborio mi nombre. Has sufrido mucho, hombre, entra, te has ganado el cielo.

Para Raul Castro

Cuba ocupa el penultimo lugar en el mundo en libertad economica solo superada por Corea del Norte.

Cuba ocupa el lugar 147 entre 153 paises evaluados en "Democracia, Mercado y Transparencia 2007"

Cuando vinieron

Cuando vinieron a buscar a los comunistas, Callé: yo no soy comunista.
Cuando vinieron a buscar a los sindicalistas, Callé: yo no soy sindicalista.
Cuando vinieron a buscar a los judíos, Callé: yo no soy judío. Cuando vinieron a buscar a los católicos, Callé: yo no soy “tan católico”.
Cuando vinieron a buscarme a mí, Callé: no había quien me escuchara.

Un sitio donde los hechos y sus huellas nos conmueven o cautivan

CUBA LLORA Y EL MUNDO Y NOSOTROS NO ESCUCHAMOS

Donde esta el Mundo, donde los Democratas, donde los Liberales? El pueblo de Cuba llora y nadie escucha.
Donde estan los Green, los Socialdemocratas, los Ricos y los Pobres, los Con Voz y Sin Voz? Cuba llora y nadie escucha.
Donde estan el Jet Set, los Reyes y Principes, Patricios y Plebeyos? Cuba desesperada clama por solidaridad.
Donde Bob Dylan, donde Martin Luther King, donde Hollywood y sus estrellas? Donde la Middle Class democrata y conservadora, o acaso tambien liberal a ratos? Y Gandhi? Y el Dios de Todos?
Donde los Santos y Virgenes; los Dioses de Cristianos, Protestantes, Musulmanes, Budistas, Testigos de Jehova y Adventistas del Septimo Dia. Donde estan Ochun y todas las deidades del Panteon Yoruba que no acuden a nuestro llanto? Donde Juan Pablo II que no exige mas que Cuba se abra al Mundo y que el Mundo se abra a Cuba?
Que hacen ahora mismo Alberto de Monaco y el Principe Felipe que no los escuchamos? Donde Madonna, donde Angelina Jolie y sus adoptados around de world; o nos hara falta un Brando erguido en un Oscar por Cuba? Donde Sean Penn?
Donde esta la Aristocracia Obrera y los Obreros menos Aristocraticos, donde los Working Class que no estan junto a un pueblo que lanquidece, sufre y llora por la ignominia?
Que hacen ahora mismo Zapatero y Rajoy que no los escuchamos, y Harper y Dion, e Hillary y Obama; donde McCain que no los escuchamos? Y los muertos? Y los que estan muriendo? Y los que van a morir? Y los que se lanzan desesperados al mar?
Donde estan el minero cantabrico o el pescador de percebes gijonese? Los Canarios donde estan? A los africanos no los oimos, y a los australianos con su acento de hombres duros tampoco. Y aquellos chinos milenarios de Canton que fundaron raices eternas en la Isla? Y que de la Queen Elizabeth y los Lords y Gentlemen? Que hace ahora mismo el combativo Principe Harry que no lo escuchamos?
Donde los Rockefellers? Donde los Duponts? Donde Kate Moss? Donde el Presidente de la ONU? Y Solana donde esta? Y los Generales y Doctores? Y los Lam y los Fabelo, y los Sivio y los Fito Paez?
Y que de Canseco y Miñoso? Y de los veteranos de Bahia de Cochinos y de los balseros y de los recien llegados? Y Carlos Otero y Susana Perez? Y el Bola, y Pancho Cespedes? Y YO y TU?
Y todos nosotros que estamos aqui y alla rumiando frustaciones y resquemores, envidias y sinsabores; autoelogios y nostalgias, en tanto Louis Michel comulga con Perez Roque mientras Biscet y una NACION lanquidecen?
Donde Maceo, donde Marti; donde aquel Villena con su carga para matar bribones?
Cuba llora y clama y el Mundo NO ESCUCHA!!!
