Message to the National Assembly read by comrade Fidel

At the beginning, only eight weeks ago, I thought there was no possible
solution to the imminent danger of a war. The situation before my eyes
was so tragic that I thought there was no other way out but the
possibility to survive –quite likely perhaps- in the region of this
hemisphere that for no reason could become a target of a direct attack,
as well as some isolated regions of the planet.
It was very difficult to figure that out, knowing that human beings always cling to some sort of perspective, however remote.
Despite everything, I tried.
Fortunately, I did not take long to realize that there was one hope –as a
matter of fact, a very profound one. However, if that possibility was
missed, the disaster would lead to the worst consequences. Then there
might be no possible salvation for the human species.
Nevertheless, I strongly believe this would not be the case. Quite on
the contrary, the conditions for what seemed to be only until very
recently an undreamed-of situation are right now in the making.
One man, the President of the United States, will have to take this
decision on his own. Quite certainly, given his multiple occupations, he
has not realized that as yet, but his advisors have started to get an
understanding of the situation, judging by the simple actions that have
been taken, such as the ceasing of the tortures imposed on Gerardo,
something that had not been done during the last twelve years of
implacable hatred by the system against Cuba and against him. Today one
could predict that the next step would be the authorization that would
allow Adriana to visit him in prison or his immediate release or both.
It was through Adriana that I learned that, after twelve years of unjust
and cruel imprisonment, his morale is now higher than ever.
Given the fact that Iran will not give an inch to the demands of the
United States and Israel, which have already mobilized several of the
means of warfare to their disposal, they will have to launch the attack
as soon as the date agreed by the Security Council on June 9, 2010 -with
the established rules and requirements- expires.
There is a limit to all what man hopes to achieve, which he can not surpass.
In this critical case, President Barack Obama is the one who would give
the order to start the so much announced and publicized attack,
following the rules of the gigantic empire.
However, just at the moment when he gives that order, which would be,
besides, the only one he could give, taking into account the power, the
speed and the uncountable number of nuclear missiles accumulated as a
result of an absurd competition among powers, he would also be ordering
the immediate death not only of hundreds of millions of persons, among
them an incalculable number of citizens of his own country, but also the
crew members of all the vessels of the US fleet deployed in the seas
surrounding Iran. A war will break out simultaneously in the Near and
Middle East as well as in all Eurasia.
Fate would have it that, on that precise moment, the US President would
be a person of African and White, Mohammedan and Christian descent. HE
WILL NOT GIVE SUCH ORDER!!! , unless we help him become aware of it. And
this is what we are doing here.
The leaders of the most powerful countries in the world, whether allies
or adversaries, with the exception of Israel, would encourage him not to
After that the world will bestow upon him all the honors he might deserve.
The order that has been currently established in the planet shall not be able to last. Soon after, it will inevitably collapse.
The so called hard currencies will lose their value as the instrument of
the system that has exacted a contribution of wealth and unlimited
sweat and sacrifice from the peoples.
New forms of distribution of goods and services, education and
management of social processes will peacefully emerge, but if a war
breaks out, the current social order will disappear abruptly at a much
The population in the planet could be regulated; non-renewable resources
could be preserved; climate change could be prevented; all human beings
could be guaranteed a useful employment; the ill could be assisted;
essential knowledge, culture and science to the service of man could be
guaranteed. The children, adolescents and youth of the world will not
perish in that nuclear holocaust.
This is the message I wanted to convey to you, dear comrades of our National Assembly.
I am now ready to account for my words, answer the questions you may want to ask me and listen to your opinions.
Thank you, very much (Applause).

El debate de los dos tercios
por Héctor Vega (Chile)

La convicción central y clave del 18 de octubre de 2019, día de la revuelta social en Chile, fue que frente a una clase política fracasada y corrupta la participación popular marchaba por carriles diferentes. En ese escenario la Convención Constitucional fue la moneda de cambio para que el presidente Sebastián Piñera siguiera en La Moneda hasta el fin de su mandato.

Nuestro país, y en especial sus gobernantes, tiene una enorme deuda pendiente con el pueblo saharaui, pero también con el pueblo español y con la comunidad internacional.»
