Tema: Cuba

Dave Sewell: Fidel Castro 1926-2016
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 355, nov 16 
Note: Da den unge Fidel Castro stod anklaget for et væbnet angreb på Moncada-kasernen i 1953, udfordrede han retten: “Døm mig blot. Det betyder ikke noget. Historien vil frikende mig.”
Dave Sewell: Review: Cuba Libre?
International Socialism Journal nr. 136, okt 12 – side 221
Note: Sam Farber, Cuba Since the Revolution of 1959: A Critical Assessment (Haymarket, 2011), $24
Discussions around Cuba have an unfortunate tendency to generate more heat than light, particularly on the left. Sam Farber’s new book, in the same spirit as Jeffery Webber’s recent works on Bolivia, provides much-needed clarity.
Mike Gonzalez: Castro og Cuba
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 277, mar 08 – side 11
Note: Efter 49 år ved magten er Fidel Castro endeligt trådt tilbage fra posten som Cubas præsident. Vi ser tilbage på den indflydelsesrige, men ufuldkomne politiske figurs liv.
Mike Gonzalez: Frontlines: Cuba after Fidel Castro: Following Fidel
Socialist Review nr. 323, mar 08 – side 4
Note: Fidel Castro has resigned from his position as head of the government of Cuba after 49 years in charge. Even during the last 18 months when his brother Raul (five years his junior) was formally in power he has continued to control things, just as he has ever since he led the rebel army into Havana in 1959.
Castro and Cuba
Socialist Worker nr. 2090, mar 08 – side 13
Note: After 49 years in power, Fidel Castro has finally resigned as president of Cuba. Socialist Worker looks back on the life of this influential but flawed figure.
Mike Gonzalez: Cuba efter Castro
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 263, dec 06 – side 8
Note: Det er i disse dage 50 år siden, Fidel Castro startede den cubanske revolution. Startskuddet faldt den 25. november 1956, da Castro sammen med 80 frihedskæmpede om bord på den lille motorbåd Granma satte kursen mod Cuba. Godt to år senere kunne deres guerillabevægelse marchere sejrende ind i Havana.
Samuel Farber: Feedback: Cuban myths
International Socialism Journal nr. 112, sep 06 – side 224
Note: I am grateful for Chris Harman’s positive review of my book The Origins of the Cuban Revolution Reconsidered (Internatioanl Socialism 111). Nevertheless, I would like to address an issue that Chris mentioned almost in passing but which I feel requires clarification.
Chris Harman: Cuba behind the myths
International Socialism Journal nr. 111, jun 06 – side 83
Note: A review of Sam Farber: "The Origins of the Cuban Revolution Reconsidered" (University of North Carolina Press, 2006), £36.50 + Richard Gott: "Cuba: A New History" (Yale, Nota Bene series, 2005), £9.99
Oliver Stone: Han kan godt – lave gode film altså
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 220, okt 03 – side 9
Note: Men den 99 minutter lange dokumentarfilm om Fidel Castro, “Commandante”, er et tvivlsomt produkt.
Chris Harman: Thinking it through: Down and out in Havana (Pedro Juan Gutiérrez: "Anclado en Tierra de Nada" (Anchored to the Land of Nothing))
Socialist Review nr. 265, jul 02 – side 13
Note: Is Cuba free from capitalism? Chris Harman looks at the novels of a writer who does not think so
Jørn Andersen: Castros vej til magten
Socialistisk Revy nr. 3, apr 98 – side 26
Note: Da Fidel Castros guerillahær erobrede magten i Cuba i 1958, ville ingen have spået, at Cuba 40 år senere ville blive kaldt "kommunismens sidste bastion."
Mike Gonzalez: John Lee Anderson: “Che Guevara”: Che Guevara – den revolutionære helgen
Socialistisk Revy nr. 1, feb 98 – side 21
Note: Che Guevara er stadig et symbol for revolutionær kamp. Mike Gonzales ser bag om myten og manden, hvis strategi ledte til nederlag trods dens heltemodige karakter
Martin B. Johansen: Hvem var Che Guevara?
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 163, jul 97 – side 6
Note: Han dukker konstant op på plakater, T-shirts og badges og har fæstnet sig i den historiske hukommelse som en revolutionær helt på linje med Malcolm X, Spartakus og Skipper Clement.
Anne Mette Ougaard: Cuba: USA-blokade skaber kaos
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 107, sep 94 – side 6
Note: Den amerikanske blokade mod Cuba skaber tusindvis af flygtninge. Blokaden er USA’s forsøg på at få kontrol over Cuba.
Anne Mette Ougaard: Cuba: På randen af sammenbrud
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 104, jun 94 – side 7
Note: I tre årtier stod Cuba og Fidel Castro som et symbol for store dele af venstrefløjen. I dag er landet isoleret og i dyb social og økonomisk krise.
Jørgen Lund: Ernesto “Che” Guevara: Historien om en helt
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 86, nov 92 – side 10
Note: Che Guevara – leder i den cubanske revolution – døde for 25 år siden. Che blev en helt og en myte. Ideen og troen på guerillakamp som vejen til revolution inspirerede titusinder af unge på venstrefløjen.
Mike Gonzalez: Can Castro survive?
International Socialism Journal nr. 56, sep 92 – side 83
Note: US imperialism has its greedy eye on Cuba. Every socialist will hope that Cuba remains a thorn in the American ruling class's side. But does that mean uncritical support for Castro's repressive regime? Mike Gonzalez analyses a turning point in history.
Torben Mønster: Socialisme og den tredje verden
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 5, feb 85 – side 4
Note: Siden 2. verdenskrig har mere end halvdelen af jordens befolkning gjort op med gamle, før-kapitalistiske strukturer og kolonialismens lænker.
Vogt jer for efterligninger: Cuba, Nicaragua
Peter Binns: "Popular Power" in Cuba
International Socialism Journal nr. 21, sep 83 – side 135

Mike Gonzalez + Alex Callinicos + Peter Binns: Cuba, socialism and the third world. A rejoinder to Robin Blackburn (1980)
International Socialism Journal nr. 10, sep 80 – side 93
Note: Responding to Robin Blackburn’s contribution to the debate in these pages on Cuba, presents us with certain problems. While he himself raises a few factual objections to our account, some of which – including the role of the Communist Party and the working class – are serious and will be considered below the most significant points for him are clearly those of emphasis. According to him we dwell too long on Cuba’s economic structure, on the regimented and bureaucratised aspects of the regime, and not enough on its popularity, but that judgement depends on what political task he regards as most significant. As we shall see there are sharp differences between Blackburn and ourselves here, both as regards workers’ revolution and socialism in general and as regards the perspectives for third World revolution today.

Robin Blackburn: Class forces in the Cuban Revolution: a reply to Peter Binns and Mike Gonzalez
International Socialism Journal nr. 9, jun 80 – side 81
Note: “Cuba, Castro and Socialism” by Peter Binns and Mike Gonzalez (International Socialism 2:8) represents, in certain limited respects, an advance on the analysis of the Cuba revolution to be found in the pages of International Socialism.

Mike Gonzalez + Peter Binns + Nigel Harris: Notes and Letters: Cuba
International Socialism Journal nr. 9, jun 80 – side 128
Note: Letter from Nigel Harris on Cuba, Castro and and Socialism in ISJ 2:8 + reply from authors
Peter Binns + Mike Gonzalez: Cuba, Castro and Socialism
International Socialism Journal nr. 8, mar 80 – side 1
Note: Twenty one years have passed since the time Castro’s rebel army, backed by a loose coalition of intellectuals – the 26th July Movement – destroyed the US-backed Batista regime and began to effect fundamental changes in Cuban society. What exactly did it achieve? Does it provide the Third World with an alternative and viable road to socialism to that of Moscow’s stultifying bureaucrats? Can its methods be repeated elsewhere?

Nick Howard + Sergio Junco: Yanqui No! Castro No! Cuba Si!
International Socialism Journal (1st series) nr. 7, dec 61 – side 31
Note: A great deal of debate has been taking place concerning the nature and development of present Cuban society; not surprisingly, a number of half-truths have been used by both the capitalist attackers of Castro and by the defenders of the Cuban regime, particularly those defenders of the regime who are followers of the Russian bureaucratic line.
Revolution in Cuba
International Socialism Journal (1st series) nr. 3, dec 60 – side 4
Note: As this editorial was being written news was coming in of American preparations for the invasion of Cuba. By the time it is read the history of the Cuban revolution will have been taken a stage further. But some of the key reasons for defending the Cuban revolution will remain as valid as they are now.
