Havana Times

open-minded writing from Cuba
  1. Raul Castro dedicated the heart of his latest speech - at the National Assemby - to the self-employed sector which is considered to be a motor for the economy, but as fishermen say, there are people who fish and then get scared of fish eyes.
  2. I’m at the Barquisimeto bus terminal in Lara State. Next to me, there’s a dog. She drags along a paw and she has myiasis on some parts of her body. I suddenly think about what I can give her to eat...
  3. The debate has revealed an overwhelming rejection of smear campaigns published in two or three Cuban blogs, where half a dozen gloomy officials self-promote themselves as the ideological guides of all Cuban revolutionaries.
  4. I interviewed the young actress and filmmaker Camila Carballo. Her last short movie “Lobos” (wolves), tells the story of two men who break into an old man’s apartment after he has just passed away, and they do this for the simple reason that they want to extend their homes.
  5. Today in Managua the Nicaraguan government celebrates the 38th anniversary of the Sandinista Revolution, which includes special guests from different countries. Cuban VP Miguel Diaz Canel represents the island at the event.
  6. Pro-capitalist speculation and instructions from “saviors” of the Revolution are appearing in the pro-capitalist media on a regular basis. These “saviors” are proposing on changing, very gently, the current system of government in a transition period where capitalism will slowly be reinstated...
  7. This audiovisual by Lesnik Allen brings us the work process of Cuban artist Stefania Diez.
  8. The international community will not be able to establish an effective policy for the defense of human rights as long as it remains influenced by the political and economic interests of one country or another.
  9. Several days before Raul Castro’s speech, lawmakers designated from above, were sent to “investigate the non-agricultural cooperative experiment” and they paved the way for this crafty attack on the few freedoms that non-agricultural cooperatives have.
  10. Today in Cuba, like in the rest of the world, children’s toys have nothing to do with what they once were in past eras. Likewise, obtaining them is something that has become an extremely difficult task here on the island.
