This is the time to end once and for all the U.S. unilateral blockade against Cuba

An Open Letter to the People of the United States from President Nicolas Maduro

February 6, 2019

If I know anything, it is about peoples, such as you, I am a man of the people. I was born and raised in a poor neighborhood of Caracas. I forged myself in the heat of popular and union struggles in a Venezuela submerged in exclusion and inequality. I am not a tycoon, I am a worker of reason and heart, today I have the great privilege of presiding over the new Venezuela, rooted in a model of inclusive development and social equality, which was forged by Commander Hugo Chávez since 1998 inspired by the Bolivarian legacy.

We Stand with Maduro and the Venezuelan People

We reject the coup attempt of the US government against the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, which ignores and violates the sovereign decision of the Venezuelan people who in an absolute democratic and transparent election, in the presence of international observers elected Nicolás Maduro as their legitimate President last May.

On January 22, U.S. Vice President Mike Pence sent a recorded message out that was broadcasted by 2527 media outlets for three days in coordination with the shadowy Organization of American States (OAS), calling for subversion against Maduro’s government.

I wish I could see the mass of young men put that energy into making this country really great.” Nathan Phillips, Omaha Tribe Elder and Vietnam War Veteran on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial

Once again we have an indelible image that will define the Trump period we are living in. Recently we gasped to see the image of a migrant woman running with her 2 young children from tear gas at the border.

Last night a full house at the Eric Quesada Center for Culture and Politics, in the Mission District of San Francisco, saw the first viewing in the U.S. of the new film by the Argentinian movie producer Maria Torrellas, Cuban Women in Revolution. After the 90 minute viewing many expressed the importance of getting this film out to a broader audience to compare and contrast the oppression and discrimination that women face under the neo liberal model around the world. If this movie has one message it is the strength and confidence Cuban women have from the earliest stages of childhood to seniors who still contribute to society.
