Comment & Analysis: Cuba and Fidel Castro: Beyond his 86th Birthday (Arturo Lopez-Levy/The Havana Note)

With Fidel Castro's death announced on Saturday 26 November 2016, we revisit an article written in 2012 by Arturo Lopez-Levy and which we posted at the time. We have an article by David Raby on Fidel Castro's legacy coming soon for the Alborada website. In the meantime, you can read the introduction to Raby's excellent 2006 Democracy and Revolution: Latin America and Socialism Today, here.

[Fidel Castro is not Cuba. Rather than focusing on an 86 years old revolutionary patriarch, the international community, particularly the United States, should look at the general trends operating in Cuba’s politics and economy.]

The Fight Against Femicide (Mariela Magnelli/Alborada magazine)

[In May 2015, an Argentinian radio journalist tweeted her dismay at yet another violent death of a woman in the country. Within a month, 300,000 people had taken to Argentina’s streets to protest the ongoing crisis of gender-based violence. The Ni Una Menos (Not One Less) movement has ignited the issue of women’s rights but, writes Mariela Magnelli, much still needs to be done.]

Alborada Magazine on Latin American Politics and Culture

"The launch of Alborada magazine is one of those landmarks of journalism. For me, the epic story of hope in our time is the rise of Latin America, as people and their movements shake off their chains, especially those tethering them to the United States."

- John Pilger (Journalist, author and documentary filmmaker)
