International solidarity with our cause is a key factor, that united with dissidence both inside and outside Cuba will give us victory – consider ex-ally Fidel Castro, prof. Perdo Fuentes Cid, spokeman of Politico Presidio Cubano
Gabriela IONIȚĂPedro Fuentes Cid had fought for the liberation of Cuba to free its people from under the corrupted hands of the dictator Batista. Soon he had realized that Castro had betrayed the revolution and was a tyrant. One day while he getting from a friends house the army fired over a hundred shoots into his car as he returned fire. In the end he said he could not believe he lived because there were over 140 bullet holes in the car. He said he is convinced he survived because of his faith in God. Now, Pedro Fuentes-Cid live in Miami (USA) and is one of the key-people in the negotiation for future of Cube.
Fidel Castro and Raul Castro - convinced the Communists, or the proclamation of a communist ideology for them is a necessary measure, as a way to preserve their own influence in the country by means of a strong Soviet Union?
Fidel Castro used the communist ideology as a way to remain in power and also for protection against the USA due to his anti american feelings. His favorite book was Mein Kamp by Adolf Hitler, but he could not steer the revolution in the Nazi direction, so resorting to a strong Soviet Union gave him also financial support.
Recently, Raoul Castro was in visit to Moscow and singned a treat with president Medvedev, but without reveals about. What do you thing ?
I think the main reason for Raul to visit Moscow was the same that drove him to Brazil and Venezuela, to ask for food. The Cuban government at that time did not have food to offer the population for the following week, and now after all his visits is still short.
What kind of goals had been pursue the struggle against Batista originally?
The main goal was to overthrow the dictatorship in order to bring Democray back to Cuba. There were not many premises set by the majority of the groups involved in the struggle. The constitutional government of an elected President had been violated and most of us just wanted to make the Constitution of 1940 prevail.
What was that - a revolution with the support of the majority of the population or a coup?
Batista was a self appointed general who was running for president at the 1952 elections. Polls showed him at the end of the list of Presidential candidates with very low popularity ratings, so he decided to contact his military friends and on March 10th, 1952 , a few days before the elections, took power by force sinking the nation in its worst nightmare.
What has played a major role in the establishment of the personality cult - the Castro's charisma, the instinct of preservation of the nation in transition, especially the national mentality, or something else?
Fidel Castro took over power from a discredited dictatorship on January 1st, 1959,with a very high popularity in the country, about 90% of the population was on his side. At the onset of his government his charisma was a decisive factor, then as the years went by and his opposition grew pure terror has kept him in power.
If Che Guevara responsible for repression, then how can you explain the phenomenon of Che - worldwide fame and popularity?
Che was directly responsible for countless deaths of Cubans who had opposed the revolution during the days of the struggle against the dictatorship and for many others who opposed it after 1959, some of which had fought on the side of the revolution. His philosophy was one of hatred and cruelty. The fact that many cherish his memory now is based on their ignorance of who Che really was or maybe because they know and they share his hate .
In some media, we can find the view that the death of Che was planned by the leadership of the USSR and F. Castro. What can you say about this?
If you study carefully the events that gave rise to the death of Che in Bolivia it is easy to see both the hands of Fidel and the Russians. Che came back from a trip abroad, shortly before his disappearance from public view in Cuba and had the audacity to talk to the Cuban press who published his comments, about how resources much needed in the nation were wasted in military mobilizations against an imaginary invasion from the USA. The whole Bolivian adventure was based on support which was never given and by logistics which never existed. Che died without knowing that his beloved mistress Tania, who was also killed was a KGB agent but the Russians knew. The figure of a dead Che has been far more valuable to both Castro and the Russians than his life could ever have been.
At what moment of the protection of human rights in each country ceases to be an internal affair of the country and becoming a global significance?
The protection of Human Rights must be a priority for each country, but it’s a well known fact that some do not care about them, but we are all members of Humanity so respect for Human Rights becomes OUR problem. A problem of global significance. Most NGOs denounce violations, meet in international forums and debate about them, a lot of theories are put forward but very little action.
The time has arrived for an international network of NGOs and other organizations worried about the subject to come together with a common strategy like boycott for products of viola toting nations etc. If we were to learn from our enemies, we would give rise the FIRST ANTI-COMMUNIST INTERNATIONAL as a possible solution for this problem.
Do you support an appeal of the leaders of some countries to enter restrictive measures against Cuba? What they may be consist? What are the results of this could lead?
If all nations who respect Human Rights would unite in a common front to avoid violations in Cuba they would find ways to at least minimize this crimes against humanity. But for some commercial and political issues prevail and take priority over the suffering of a whole nation.
Is currently dissidence, inside and outside the country, the phenomenon that may change the political situation in Cuba?
Dissidence alone could evolve into a social explosion. We have witnessed this fact many times in the history of the world. But the government with all its power of repression is a difficult enemy. International solidarity with our cause is a key factor, that united with dissidence both inside and outside Cuba will give us victory.
What is you opinion about the future of Cuba ? How can to heal fidelism of Cuba?
The future of Cuba after Democracy is restored will be an example of how fast a nation can evolve into wealth and financial well being for all its citizens. Tourism will play an important role and also Agriculture, Cuba has a very fertile soil that can be put to production after a moderate initial investment. Free people work happily.

Revolutia din decembrie 89: Pacatul originar, sacrificiul fondator este prima carte dintr-o serie de sapte volume dedicate ultimelor doua decenii din istoria României. Nu am pretentia ca sunt detinatorul unui adevar politic, juridic sau istoric incontestabil, si sunt gata sa discut si sa accept orice documente, fapte sau marturii care pot lumina mai bine sau chiar altfel realitatea. Educatia mea stiintifica si religioasa m-a ajutat sa cercetez faptele în mod obiectiv, eliberat de ura sau intoleranta. Recunosc însa o anume încrâncenare în ceea ce am scris venita din durerea unui om care a trait în miezul evenimentelor si se simte lovit de acceptarea cinica a crimelor, abuzurilor, coruptiei si minciunii, sau de indiferenta la fel de cinica cu care sunt înca privite de catre o mare parte a societatii românesti.... Am scris aceste carti de pe pozitia victimelor mintite sau speriate, care nu-si cunosc sau nu-si pot apara drepturile. Le-am scris de pe pozitia milioanelor de români cinstiti care cred în adevar, în dreptate si în demnitate. Emil Constantinescu (text preluat din Introducerea cartii).
MINTEA CEA SOCOTITOARE
de academician Mircea Malita, Editura Academiei Române, 2009 În volumul de eseuri Mintea cea socotitoare, aparut la Editura Academiei Române, acad. Mircea Malita formuleaza în crescendo o serie de întrebari grave ale timpului nostru: Daca omul este rational, de ce se fac atâtea greseli în economie
sau în politica?; Daca rationalitatea nu e de ajuns, care ar fi rolul întelepciunii?; Din viitorul imprevizibil putem smulge portiuni, daca nu certe, cel putin probabile?; Ce si cum învatam pregatindu-ne pentru viitorul nostru?; Este în stare omenirea sa îsi vindece crizele?; Ne asteapta oare un dezastru final? s.a. De-a lungul anilor, acad. Mircea Malita a staruit asupra acestor teme în lucrari recunoscute, însa acum o face raportându-se la dinamica realitatii imediate, inspirat de cuvintele lui Dimitrie Cantemir: socoteala mintii mele, lumina dinlauntrul capului. Eseurile sunt structurate pe patru parti - Mintea senina, Metaforele mintii, Mintea învolburata si Privind înainte. Finalul este de un optimism lucid care tine seama de potentialul de rationalitate si imaginatie al mintii umane si, fireste, de generatiile tinere care îl pot valoriza benefic.
Această carte de poezie este seismograful de mare sensibilitate care înregistrează cele două întâlniri ale sufletului, deopotrivă cu URÂTUL care ne schilodește ca ființă, ca neam, dar și cu FRUMUSEȚEA sufletească nepoluată ce stă ca o fântână cu apă curată pe un câmp plin cu peturi și gunoaie nedegradabile. Ce poate fi mai dureros decât să surprinzi această fibră distrusă de aluviunile istorice încărcate de lașități, inerții, apatii, compromisuri devenite congenitale ale românului? Vibrația versurilor, directețea lor, simplitatea dusă până în marginea cotidianului paradoxal n-au efect distructiv asupra tonusului moral al cititorului, ci produc neliniștea cea bună, cum ar spune Sfinții Părinți. Citești în revolta și durerea poetei un mănunchi admirabil de calități: o demnitate neînfrântă, o fiziologie a verticalității și, mai ales, o inimă creștină, o inimă din ceruri, cum ar spune poetul latin. Căci, în această inimă din ceruri, există lacrimi deopotrivă pentru românul umilit, distrus până și-n visele lui, dar și pentru copilul din Gaza, cu sufletul și trupul chircite sub șenilele tancurilor unui război ce tinde să devină mai lung decât viața lui, ale unui război-viață, lacrimi pentru copilul evreu ce nu a putut fi salvat de la deportarea bestială, lacrimi pentru Tibetul sfâșiat. Și toate acestea fără impostura unui ecumenism sentimental, ci izvorâte din acel suspin curat românesc ce face esența lacrimii creștine. (Dan Puric)
ISLAMUL SI SOARTA LUMII - Fundamentalismul islamic ca ideologie politica de Virginia Mircea "Islamul si soarta lumii - Fundamendamentalismul ca ideologie politca invita la o reflectie mai adanca asupra porceselor lumii contemporane. Judecata critica si independenta a autoarei a produs o lucrare de o veritabila investigatie stiintifica, exact la momentul in care tema tratata deseori fara solutii si perspective ocupa scena din fata a politicii si problemelor mondiale. Cititorii o pot aseza cu satisfactie in bliblioteca lor de referinta. Vor fi mult ajutati in intelegerea evenimentelor care ne sesizeaza in prezent si intr-un viitor in care tema nu se va desprinde de mersul lumii contemporane." (academician Mircea Malita)
