Bush, hunder, and death

For the first time, just before the UN discusses Cuba’s proposed resolution condemning the blockade, as it does every year, the president of the United States has announced that he is to adopt new measures to accelerate the “transition period” in our country, equivalent to a new conquest of Cuba by force.

On the other hand, the danger of a massive world famine is being aggravated by Mr. Bush’s recent initiative to transform foods into fuel, while at the same time, citing strategic security principles, he is threatening humanity with World War III, this time using atomic weapons.

These crucially important issues are the ones that interest the representatives of the countries that will be meeting on Tuesday, October 30, to discuss the Cuban resolution condemning the blockade.

In elections where voting is not mandatory, our people have just delivered their verdict, with more than 95 percent of the electorate casting their vote at 37,749 voting stations, in ballot boxes guarded by schoolchildren. That is the example provided by Cuba.
