Those of you who have been to Cuba!
Would you help me with some useful information?
I'm going to make a large photographic project there. May be you have some good acquaintances there? Some insiders (fixers) who can coordinate us when we come? English speaking guides? Owners of night clubs or just persons who have many contacts in the area?
maybe some cheap lodgings?
Guys who can help?
Or interesting personages who can become the heroes of the photo-story (maybe some musicians or auto-mechanics for example)
My best regards,
So, I am a newbie to your community... I saw the last time someone posted was the 17th September, or something like that SO I decided to just write this... I am strange, I know... Ok, so, that's me rambling.
I joined it because it seemed interesting. Che intrigues me in a way no other "modern hero" does, I have yet to read a few of the speeches and books he wrote. I want to know what motivated him to go to Bolivia to fight for the cause he believed in, knowing that he would probably be chased all the way down there...
So, just introducing myself...
The most happily brainwashed people in the world.
I think the matrix is an obvious metaphor for capitialism.
Think about it. We are all plugged into the machine.
I have read only some things from Che Guevara. The best book I ever read was the Che Guevara reader. I have some Che Books, but I never got around to reading them. I read parts of Guerilla Warfare and I know a lot about Bolivia from a documentary on him, El Che. I've read his account of the Cuban Revolution. It makes one wonder if Che sabataged himself by going to Bolivia. Bolivia liked it's form of governemnt at the time. For a revolution to occur, oppression and domination must occur to where the people have no choice but to revolt. When the Cuban Revolution occured, Che was the only foreigner in the mission. For he had medical training. With Bolvia, eight Cubans were on the mission. Even the Bolivian communist part back out from support with them. But he kept going on with the mission. It make sone wonder why he kept going on with the mission.
i also came across this, which pissed me off but i do see some actual valid points in this...
As much as i love Castro i admit he does have some qualities that of a dictator...
i just dont know what to think????http://www.weisbord.org/Castroism.htm
i just keep thinking to myself...he had good intentions , right???
Have you heard about Bush paying journalists with taxpayer money to distort the truth?Congressional ReportWhite House paid commentator to promote lawPundit got $240,000 to pitch education reform
By Greg Toppo
Seeking to build support among black families for its education reform law, the Bush administration paid a prominent black pundit $240,000 to promote the law on his nationally syndicated television show and to urge other black journalists to do the same.
The campaign, part of an effort to promote No Child Left Behind (NCLB), required commentator Armstrong Williams “to regularly comment on NCLB during the course of his broadcasts,” and to interview Education Secretary Rod Paige for TV and radio spots that aired during the show in 2004.
Williams said Thursday he understands that critics could find the arrangement unethical, but “I wanted to do it because it's something I believe in.”
The top Democrat on the House Education Committee, Rep. George Miller of California, called the contract “a very questionable use of taxpayers' money” that is “probably illegal.” He said he will ask his Republican counterpart to join him in requesting an investigation.( Read more...Collapse )
In 1962, U.S. military leaders had a top-secret plan for committing terrorist attacks on Americans in Miami and Washington, D.C. while blaming Fidel Castro and Cuba. Codenamed “Operation Northwoods”, the plan was intended to provide the propaganda necessary to create popular support for an invasion of Cuba.
The 9-11 attacks were a modern-day Operation Northwoods, used to create popular support for the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq and the brutal state terrorism of their people — in order to get total control of the massive Persian Gulf and Caspian Basin oil reserves.
what gives? this community is dying, much like my own - redstarrevolt
