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.
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.
