The Verdict of History: Sixty Years of Affirming Independence and the Cause of Peace and Justice! Print E-mail

Isaac Saney, National Spokesperson, Canadian Network On Cuba

July 26th, 2013 marks the 60th anniversary of the act that is annually commemorated all over Cuba as the beginning of the movement and struggle that paved the way for the Cuban Revolution. On July 26th, 1953, a group of courageous young men and women - led by Cuba's former president, Fidel Castro - attacked the Moncada Barracks in the city of Santiago de Cuba, and the Carlos Manuel de Cespedes Barracks in Bayamo, in an attempt to overthrow the U.S. supported puppet dictator Fulgencio Batista. As the island’s second largest military garrison, the Moncada Barracks was critical to Batista’s military control of southern Cuba. The goal was to seize the weapons and distribute them to the people and spark a national uprising that would not only overthrow the Batista dictatorship but also establish Cuba’s independence and sovereignty.

Re: Toronto man, 78, guilty of sex crimes against children in Cuba, June 15, 2013

The series of Toronto Star articles on sexual predators posing as tourists in Cuba comprise a campaign of outright deception. It is well known that Cuba has a zero tolerance for molestation of children. There is simply no comparison of Cuba with the countries where sex tourism is promoted, which implies child pornography and paedophelia. These are not tolerated in Cuba.

Cuba holds an admirable place in the international community as concerns the protection and promotion of the rights of children. In Cuba every child is guaranteed an education and access to universal and free healthcare. In Cuba there are no homeless children roaming the streets eking out an existence in a dog-eat-dog society. There is no child pornography industry in Cuba or tolerance of paedophelia, no priests or educators or sports coaches molesting children, no media preying on children or promoting gossips and yellow journalism about them. Rather than promote lies about Cuba, the Toronto Star would do well to remind its audience that anyone who violates Cuban laws as concerns laying a hand on a minor will definitely end up in jail.

Sincerely,
Isaac Saney
