“This blog opens a window to the English-speaking world on the debates and changes taking place in Cuba. I’ll be regularly posting original translations of selected documents, commentaries and letters to the editor published in Cuba’s revolutionary press, and inviting readers to comment on them. The other is to provide a space for discussion and debate among supporters, however critical, of the Cuban Revolution to sharpen our understanding and, hopefully, to inspire our ongoing solidarity”.
