Fidel's Reflections

I'm sure these things keep you up at night, case you ever wondered what Fidel Castro's opinion columns, dubbed Reflections, look like in print, here are a few examples, one from Granma, the other from Juventud Rebelde.

Granma doesn't print all of Fidel's "Reflections," although all of them do appear on the website CubaDebate as well as on Granma's digital edition.

By Antonio Martínez.

It seems that Fidel Castro currently writes only for foreigners and the relative handful of Cubans with Internet access, as the communist island’s official media - there are no independent outlets - have neither published nor reported on the erstwhile leader’s latest opinion columns, known as “Reflections.”

Those articles have appeared on the government-run Cubadebate Web site and Cuban officials have alerted foreign correspondents to their presence there, but they no longer appear in the Granma and Juventud Rebelde morning editions like they had over the previous two years.

Fidel’s latest musings are available on the Web pages of the two Communist Party publications.
