"Nobody is in agreement…It’s that, no one says it and no one takes the risk to say it, to speak the truth. That’s what is happening. In other words, one of the foundations, of what are the regimes in the entire world, in all of history, has been fear and lies. In other words, once you are in fear that's when you don’t take a risk, where you collect yourself and don’t unite…understood? To be in fear is not to offer help to anyone because that signifies risk." -Gorki Águila Carrasco, lead singer, guitarist of the music group Porno Para Ricardo and political prisoner
"Socialist ideology, like so many others, has two main dangers. One stems from confused and incomplete readings of foreign texts, and the other from the arrogance and hidden rage of those who, in order to climb up in the world, pretend to be frantic defenders of the helpless so as to have shoulders on which to stand." --Jose Marti

Here are some of the statements made in this video and its captions:

“Those who sing to Fidel despite everything”

“Attorney “Human Rights Defender” goes to Cuba to sing Happy Birthday to Caribbean Jackal”

“We remind Gutierrez the savage crimes of the totalitarian dictator that has been in power for over half a century”

Deaths attributed to Fidel Castro:

More than 5700 executed with or without trial

More than 2000 dead in prison

More than 2000 disappeared

In the exterior of Cuba, in wars, more than 13,000 dead in Africa, Latin America, Granada and the Middle East

The dead during the Bay of Pigs invasion in 1961

Feb 24 1996 4 killed in Brothers to the Rescue Airplane peaceful missions looking for rafters

Escapees: more than 77,000

Castro’s government according to testimony of a rafter, would drop sacks of sand from helicopters on fleeing rafters in hopes of inundating the rafters and causing them to drown

One man who testifies at the White Crosses Display commemorating the deaths of those who lived under the Castro regimes, states: ‘Of 20 person imprisoned they were shot by firing squad’; another woman testifies that her mother spent 8 years in prison….the list goes on…

Castro’s government never informs family members when an execution will be carried out nor where the person is buried

Castro isn’t responsible just for the deaths of 100,000 Cubans, but also responsible for training terrorists and guerrilleros (warriors) responsible for thousands of deaths in Latin American and Africa

President of El Salvador (until 2004), Francisco Flores Perez speaks about Fidel Castro’s murder machine…”Therefore…it is totally intolerable that you involved in the deaths of so many Salvadorians that you trained many to kill Salvadorians…that is absolutely intolerable…”

In Peru the Truth Commission estimates that more than 70,000 deaths in Peru can be attributed to Cuba’s interventionist policies

The guerrillas of Colombia trained by Cuba, have resulted in more than 200,000 deaths in Colombia

The list goes on:

Nicaragua, Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Guatemala, Bolivia, and others

The Cuban government, directly and indirectly, has caused approximately more than half a million human deaths...all ignored by the world and the press
