    Gobierno de Cuba invita a todos los ciudadanos cubanos en el exterior a participar en el debate sobre el Proyecto de Constitución

    La participación de los cubanos residentes en el exterior en el debate del Proyecto de Constitución constituye un hecho inédito en la historia de la Revolución, afirmó este viernes Ernesto Soberón, director de Asuntos Consulares y Cubanos Residentes en el Exterior (DACCRE), a través de la red social Twitter.

    “Dicha participación ratifica la voluntad de nuestro gobierno de contar con las opiniones de todos los cubanos”, escribió el diplomático cubano.

    A partir de la primera semana de septiembre se habilitará una sección en el sitio web Nación y Emigracióndel Ministerio de Relaciones Exteriores (MINREX), “a través de la cual todos los cubanos en el exterior tendrán acceso a una planilla online para trasladar sus propuestas de modificaciones o comentarios acerca del Proyecto”, informó el embajador en un tuit.

    Horas más tarde, en conferencia de prensa en la Cancillería cubana, Soberón destacó que durante dos meses, los cubanos residentes en otros países podrán emitir sus criterios sobre el texto constitucional. “Y podrán hacerlo cuantas veces lo deseen, solo deberán ofrecer unos datos mínimos para validar que es un ciudadano cubano quien opina”, dijo.

    Alrededor de un millón 400 mil cubanos están presentes en más de 120 países, la mayoría en los Estados Unidos. En aras de que todos puedan participar, actualmente la DACCRE y las entidades competentes trabajan en la creación de todas las condiciones técnicas para el proceso online.

    “Mientras mayor sea la participación, mayor será el éxito de este proceso”, señaló el diplomático en La Habana. Además ponderó que el debate se realice a través de la plataforma Nación y Emigración porque así el diálogo será directo, con la menor cantidad de intermediarios posibles, aunque todos los funcionarios que laboran en las misiones y consulados cubanos en el exterior estarán dispuestos a ofrecer información y ayuda a su comunidad.

    Cuando se cumplen 40 años, de las primeras pláticas entre representativos de los emigrados y el gobierno cubano —celebradas en noviembre de 1978—, esta decisión es “una prueba fehaciente de la continuidad de la política soberana de seguir fortaleciendo los vínculos entre la Revolución y la comunidad en el Exterior”.

    En entrevista exclusiva con teleSUR, el presidente de Cuba, Miguel Díaz-Canel, afirmó que su país está dispuesto al diálogo, mientras no se condicione su soberanía, "porque nosotros no aceptamos imposiciones, menos con los EE.UU. (...) Si se mantiene esta aberrante actitud del Gobierno de los EE.UU. contra Cuba, no hay diálogo".

  • Revelan que EEUU utiliza Facebook para difundir “fake news” de Cuba

    ¿Designarán a Robert Mueller o a otro de su linaje para investigar estos abusos?

    Cuba Facebokk

    Por: Rosa Miriam Elizalde

    Mientras Estados Unidos arma un señor escándalo por la supuesta intervención rusa en las redes sociales para influir en las elecciones de 2016 que ganó Donald Trump, hoy se han destapado las evidencias de que el gobierno estadounidense utiliza a Facebook para difundir fake news de Cuba y fomentar clandestinamente la disidencia en la Isla.

    El semanario de la Florida Miami New Times reveló este miércoles que ha tenido acceso a documentos de la gubernamental Oficina de Transmisiones hacia Cuba (OCB), a cargo de Radio y TV Martí, donde se revela que la administración Trump desde hace dos años planea utilizarcuentas de Facebook que parecen “nativas” (de personas reales en la Isla) para difundir propaganda sin informarle a los usuarios cubanos de Facebook que es publicidad gubernamental estadounidense.

    Tales propósitos están detallados en los documentos presupuestarios para los años fiscales 2018 y 2019 de la Junta de Gobernadores de Radiodifusión de Estados Unidos.

    Según el informe obtenido por el semanario, debido al fracaso de Radio y TV Martí,

  • The United States’ interest in the Cuban market

    cuba bio tech

    by Jesús Arboleya

    HAVANA — Cuba is not China; that, we all know. What’s to explain, then, the unusual interest of U.S. companies in the Cuban market?

    A U.S. producer of grain gave me an answer years ago: “It’s the only country in the world that delivers the daily bread to 11 million people.” Nevertheless, as true as this assertion is, it’s insufficient to explain what goes on. The matter is a lot more complex.

    In a world where the development of commerce depended in good measure on the military domination of territories, the United States — during the first century of its existence — tried to expand within its own land borders. Attempting it beyond the seas was barred to the U.S. by the scant development of its naval force.
