Havana, Cuba: A well-earned hero’s welcome for comrade Fernando González of the Cuban 5 at the University of Havana, March 1, 2014.
Fernando spent more than 15 years in U.S. prisons for his work protecting socialist Cuba from the fascist right-wing in Miami. Three other members of the Cuban 5 remain behind bars in the U.S.

Iranian MPs cancel a visit to LatAm because the US denies its airspace to their plane.
The empire doesn’t want Iran to talk to Cuba or Venezuela.
So apparently we’re being children and making the flight nearly impossible (US airspace is range-necessary)

The most powerful country in the world is today experiencing the erosion of its hegemony. When faced with a similar situation in the past, the U.S reacted by attacking a small country. How might it respond today?
There were and are two possible reactions, then and now, said Ernesto Domínguez, from the University of Havana’s Center for Hemispheric and U.S. Studies (CEHSEU), speaking with Granma: “Assume the decline and attempt to manage it in such a way to preserve a privileged position, or try to detain the process by resorting to the use of force, with several concrete objectives, such as giving a show of power, reaffirming geo-strategic positions, controlling key resources or stimulating the economy with military spending.”"

This, from what I saw of Honduras last winter, is heartbreaking. US backed Capitalist supremacism continues to strangle the country….
Honduran students demonstrated Tuesday in front of the Autonomous University in Tegucigalpa to demand that the authorities of the Supreme Electoral Tribunal (TSE) recount of the votes in Sunday’s national election.
A student at the demonstration said that” the people on Sunday made a decision” and” Xiomara Castro is the president of Honduras, but as always the oligarchy continues to attack the people.”
On Monday, the Supreme Electoral Tribunal (TSE) of Honduras issued a bulletin stating that the trend of the votes counted is “irreversible,” placing the National Party and its candidate Juan Hernandez at the head of the contest.
Maduro: It’s an Outrage How Spain Celebrates the Holocaust of Our Ancestors
For those who unaware, October 12 is a national holiday in Spain. Once called “Día de la Hispanidad,” it’s that country’s national day and also its Day of the Armed Forces. They now call it “Fiesta Nacional,” or “National Festival.”
For us and many others, the fact that Spain has chosen this day to celebrate its nationhood is extremely offensive and illustrates how the racism of colonialism is still deeply a part of this country’s identity.
Venezuela President Nicolás Maduró agrees. On Saturday, Maduro told an assembly of military personnel how he felt about Spain’s Fiesta.
“In Spain, [they celebrate October 12] as their national day … I felt outraged and offended that elsewhere they celebrate the day that began the American Indian Holocaust,” Maduro said.
“Spain should reconsider this, as should the rest of Europe, because they cannot be celebrating the day that began the massacre, or the holocaust, of 100 million men and women who were our grandfathers and our grandmothers,” he said.
“That’s why today is neither Día de la Hispanidad, nor is it Día de la Raza, it is a day of resistance for our Aboriginal Peoples. Resistance to conquest, resistance to colonialism, resistance to the Holocaust,” Maduro added.
A salute to Nicolás Maduro, and to his predecessor, Hugo Chávez, for officially making October 12 Day of Indigenous Resistance in Venezuela!
