Position of the Taller Libertario "Alfredo López"

Regarding the release of prisoners and the re-establishment of diplomatic relations between the Cuba and US governments


1. The”normalization” of diplomatic relations between the governments of the USA and Cuba should help eliminate many antiquated impediments imposed by these very same governments upon basic human bonds in both countries.

2. We celebrate, together with those freed from the prisons and their families who have just received their love ones at home, free - at last! - after many years of “legal” incarceration.

3. Nevertheless, we do not know the terms of these negotiations. It has been done for effect and fosters a miracle mentality leaving us as passive spectators.

4. We are also worried about new opportunities emerging for more and improved capitalist exploitation of our people.

5. Which will increase submission, insignificance and misery by way of more consumerism, more ecological depredation and more mass culture; and it’s because…

6. United States' imperalism still stands.

7. Cuban authoritarianism still stands.

8. The Guantanamo naval base has not been dismantled and continues to house an international prison, complete with torture center.

9. Therefore, it is not enough to release a group of prisoners; closing a particularly hideous prison would not be enough, all prisons all over the world must close.

10. Neither is it enough for the governments to end their “cold war” and come to agree on a number of points: true reconciliation among the people will come when there are no more states.

11. Even less by unblocking the markets so that the owners of the means of exploitation of other people’s labor and of nature be able to commerce among themselves.

12. Therefore we hope that, now that the possibility of the end of the embargo floats on the horizon, this will not be worked out just by the executive powers alone, but that every Cuban and every US citizen participates willingly.

We will keep up our struggle against all domination: ecological, anti-imperialist, anti-capitalist and anti-authoritarian struggle, in solidarity with our comrades all over the world.

Liberty without socialism is privilege and injustice; socialism without liberty is brutality and tyranny.
