At a time when the Cubans are fighting for their revolution and national sovereignty, saying Patria o Muerte - fatherland or death; in Britain we should fight for national sovereignty, in the understanding that Britain is its working people.
I hate when people say “the West is inherently reactionary, we can’t organise workers in the imperial core” out of some perceived act of solidarity with the global south. As if people in those countries benefit from us completely abandoning a workers movement on our own soil.
It is hard to understand, till we see things in terms of what side we choose in the class war; the consistency & determination we have in pursuing the interests of our class; and who owns the main source of information/ misinformation.
I do not understand how people can look at Cuba with universal healthcare, free education, the lowest infant mortality rate in Latin America, producing vaccines for lung cancer etc. And think, out of every country in the world this is the government people need to be freed from ?

The choice is socialism or fascism. Pick a side!
The revolution defends itself.
