Yahoo News reports that the postponed birthday party for fidel is on again. As Stefania reports, Dr. Darsy Ferrer is calling for peaceful resistance beginning on the 13TH. What do you think, is fidel’s birthday going to be the day the wall of silence cracks?
Also, chavez says he’s exchanged letters with fidel. So where’s the note to “the people”? And, it looks like the US is squeezing chavez a little. El univeral reports that the US wants Chavez to join calls for democracy in Cuba.
Thomas Shannon, US Assistant Secretary of State for Western Hemisphere Affairs, would like Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez to advocate also democratic transition in Cuba and doubted that he can keep similar relations with Fidel Castro out of power.
“Our hope is that Venezuela, as a country signatory of the Americas Democratic Charter, joins the rest of the hemisphere to express its desire for a successful democratic transition” in Cuba, Shannon told reporters in the State Department.
The diplomat wondered about future relations between President Chávez and Cuba after Fidel Castro’s office.
We’re all wondering about that.
