Mensaje de Cockcroft a LA SEGUNDA CONFERENCIA INTERNACIONAL “POR EL EQUILIBRIO DEL MUNDO"

Mensaje de Cockcroft a LA SEGUNDA CONFERENCIA INTERNACIONAL “POR EL EQUILIBRIO DEL MUNDO,” enviado el 19 de enero de 2008. Fue recibido y se le dio lectura en plenario en el acto de clausura de la Conferencia al fin del mes.

Amigo Hart:

Acepto tu inesperada y amable invitación de enviar un mensaje al cual se le daría lectura en el plenario de LA SEGUNDA CONFERENCIA INTERNACIONAL “POR EL EQUILIBRIO DEL MUNDO,” pero con una cierta inquietud porque no merezco ni el honor ni la atención. Aprovecho esta oportunidad para saludarles a todas y todos trabajando allá en la ocasión del Aniversario 155 del natalicio de José Martí.

“Crisis del imperialismo y enfrentamiento en Venezuela”

“Crisis del imperialismo y enfrentamiento en Venezuela”
por James Cockcroft, artículo escrito para el boletín “El Siglo en Huelga” (Chile) y sometido también a Rebelión.org, La Jornada, Correspondencia de Prensa, Aporrea.org, & Mate Amargo. Por ejemplo, véase http://aporrea.org/actualidad/a47299.html

I. Planes de “un cambio de régimen” en la época de un imperialismo desesperado

En Indo América Latina Africana se ha intensificado el conflicto entre los nuevos movimientos sociales de la izquierda y la derecha internacional, o sea el imperialismo estadounidense y sus lacayos en las clases dominantes. Durante los procesos de rebeliones populares y de intentados cambios a las constituciones en Venezuela, Bolivia y Ecuador, el imperialismo ha tratado de fortalecer las oligarquías y elementos militares locales. Estando estancado en Irak y Afganistán, el imperio ha visto el reino mundial del dólar perdiendo estabilidad. En la III Cumbre de la Organización de Países Exportadores de Petróleo (OPEP) realizada en Riad, Arabia Saudita, los presidentes de Venezuela y Ecuador respaldaron la propuesta del presidente de Irán de sustituir el dólar por el euro. Así el gobierno del presidente George W. Bush, cada vez más impopular domésticamente, se encuentra en una situación bastante desesperada.

ENTREVISTA A JAMES COCKCROFT, por Emerson da Silva

Calls for Freedom of Cuban Five (English, French, & Spanish)

In the closing months of 2007 two new urgent Calls for the Freedom of the Cuban Five were issued from Canada. The one reproduced here in three languages resulted from the international conference "Breaking the Silence," and the other, directed to Canadians and available here in English, continued the momentum of that conference.

Honourable Members of Parliament,
Federal Parties of Canada,
Media Journalists and Intellectuals,
and All Honourable People Living in Canada

THE PROOF IS IN THE PUDDING

SUBJECT: THE CUBAN FIVE versus U.S.-SPONSORED TERRORISM (the case of
Luis Posada Carriles)

THE SOVEREIGNTY OF CUBA MUST BE RESPECTED (in English and Spanish)

Cuba Sovereignty PETITION, easy sign-in

SOVEREIGNTY OF CUBA MUST BE RESPECTED
In the face of President George W. Bush’s escalation of threats against the sovereignty of Cuba only days before the UN General Assembly’s vote for the sixteenth consecutive year against the inhuman and unjustifiable 47-year-old US economic blockade of Cuba, and in the world context of Bush’s recent threats of a nuclear “World War III,” we issue this call to US intellectuals and artists to join us in calling for a permanent dialogue and cultural exchange between the peoples of the United States and Cuba. We also call for making public the secret annex to the latest declaration of the “Commission for Assistance to a free Cuba,” presided over by Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. Ominously, the Department of State has emphasized that the plan includes measures that will remain secret “for reasons of national security” and to assure its “effective implementation”. It is not difficult to imagine the character of such measures if one considers the militarization of the foreign policy of the Bush administration and its performance in Iraq.

BREAKING THE SILENCE
This international conference is a result of recent momentum developed in the movement to free the five Cuban anti-terrorists unjustly jailed in the U.S. since 1998. The conference will take place Friday, November 9, and Saturday, November 10, 2007, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
On Friday, speakers will include the Cuban Ambassador to Canada, Leonard Weinglass, Elizabeth Palmeiro, Livio Di Celmo, Gloria La Riva and Soffiyah Elijah at the evening presentation at 7 pm to be held at the Council Chambers in Toronto City Hall. A press conference regarding the topics to be covered in the conference will be held on Friday at 11 am in the Committee Room #1, Toronto City Hall. It will include guest speakers Elizabeth Palmeiro, wife of one of the Cuban Five and Livio Di Celmo, brother of Fabio Di Celmo, Italian-Canadian killed in a terrorist attack against Cuba in 1997. Di Celmo has since become an activist for the Cuban Five. Representatives of the three organizing networks also will be in attendance.

JUNE-SEPTEMBER 2007 ACTIVITIES INTERRUPTED.

“Hace 40 Años Caminaba”

“Hace 40 Años Caminaba” por James D. Cockcroft
[2007, poema escrito en homenaje a Ernesto “Che” Guevara para el 40 aniversario de su asesinato; publicado el 26 de septiembre de 2007 en Rebelión.org y http://www.enlacesocialista.org.mx/]

I

Hace 40 años caminaba
en el campo de Antioch College,
perdido en mis pensamientos…

Cuando me saludó en voz alta un colega desagradable,
un profesor jovial de psicología,
un fanático anticomunista.

“El Che Guevara ha muerto,” me anunció con satisfacción,
y mi corazón se cayó,
mientras mi cabeza se levantó.

DECLARACIÓN DE COCHABAMBA

V Encuentro de Intelectuales y Artistas en Defensa de la Humanidad
Cochabamba, Bolivia, 22 y 23 de mayo de 2007
[Véase www.humanidadenred.org.ve]

DECLARACIÓN DE COCHABAMBA

En la transición desde las resistencias frente al neoliberalismo a las ofensivas contra ese modelo, el papel de los medios es trascendental. Por ello, hoy más que nunca nos manifestamos contra el poder sin control, no democrático e impune de los grandes medios de comunicación que intentan imponer su visión de la realidad y sus valores. Estos oligopolios sirven a intereses económicos y políticos de accionistas, financieros y anunciantes.

"Immigration, Family Destruction and Terrorism: the US-Mexican Case of Saúl Arellano"

“Immigration, Family Destruction and Terrorism: the US-Mexican Case of Saúl Arellano”

[Speech by Dr. James D. Cockcroft during the IX International Congress of Economists on Globalization and Development Problems, Habana, February 5 to 9 of 2007. Topic Block “Poverty, Inequality and Equity,” No. 6, “International Migrations and Development. Conditions and Effects on Receptors and Transmitters,” February 7, 2007, English translation from Spanish courtesy of Red en Defensa de la Humanidad, Caracas.]

[NOTE: After this speech was given, on August 19, 2007, after addressing a rally in Los Angeles, California, Elvira Arellano was detained and in one more act of terror swiftly deported to Mexico without any recognition of her legal rights. On August 31 she met her son Saúl Arellano at the Mexico City airport and said she would have him go to school in her home state of Michoacán so he could learn Spanish. Neither she nor her son withdrew from their campaigns in the United States and internationally to defend the millions of immigrant families whose rights were being violated in the ways described in this speech, as witness this report from "Democracy Now" [http://www.democracynow.org/article.pl?sid=07/09/13/1445232]:
