Cuba is going to GORBACHEV next week Anonymous 04/08/2021 (Thu) 00:02:19 No. 1332818
>>Raul Castro said Thursday that he expected his successor Miguel Diaz-Canel to serve two five-year terms as Cuban president, and eventually take his place as head of the Communist Party when he retires from the position in 2021. >The Eighth Congress is scheduled to take place 16 to 19 April 2021. >>In his speech to the nation, the new president pledged to preserve the island's communist system while gradually reforming the economy and making the government more responsive to the people. >He said Cuba was, as always, prepared to negotiate with the United States but unwilling to cede to any of Washington's demands for internal change. >He emphasized that reforms would follow a 12-year-plan laid out by the National Assembly and Communist Party that would allow moderate growth of private enterprise while maintaining the important sectors of the economy in the hands of the state.
>>1332818 No, that is literally word for word what China is doing. https://www.telesurenglish.net/opinion/China-A-Revolutionary-Present-20171004-0015.html >The reforms allow for a sphere of capitalist development, while the commanding heights of the economy remain under public ownership and the firm control of the socialist state. Following their introduction, China has achieved unprecedented economic growth, building a modern, moderately prosperous country and becoming the second most powerful economy in the world. More power to them. Keep building the anti-impiralist coallition.
RIP, but it is not surprising since they are just an island in the caribbean. Losing the Soviet Union may have doomed all socialist projects.

>oh no, an ml regime is getting too capitalist >>1332841 >no worries brah, it's just like china
>>1332854 >>1332841 Cuba is weathering the storm, from my perspective, and they are doing this in lieu of mutual aid. I imagine if the United States ever had a leftist administration (unlikely), Cuba would change course.
To be expected. Latin American socialism was always a bit wierd. Juché is still the last hope for humanity.
>>1332818 >He emphasized that reforms would follow a 12-year-plan laid out by the National Assembly and Communist Party that would allow moderate growth of private enterprise while maintaining the important sectors of the economy in the hands of the state. What are they liberalizing and what are they maintaining ?
Truth is that the Cuban revolution wasn't really a proletarian revolution to begin with. And without the USSR to help them, or without revolution spreading in the Americas, it was always going to happen.
>A small, socialist, island nation under blockade and sanctions is forced to conform with some capitalist measures to survive Absolutely shocking
Take the hope pill, Cuba will make it, they have experimented with markets before, they have always reversed course when the private sector tried to get power.
>>1333216 >Truth is that the Cuban revolution wasn't really a proletarian revolution to begin with. Proofs? >And without the USSR to help them, or without revolution spreading in the Americas, it was always going to happen. Where's the USSR now?
I can see why some people are dooming in this thread, but Cuba going in a direction like Vietnam wouldn't be such a bad thing and would still make them better than the neighborhood of neoliberal hellholes in Latin America.
>>1333304 >china >vietnam Better yet! >better than the neighborhood of neoliberal hellholes in Latin America Clearly they're just doon it rong. Gotta get those prodonktive farces pumpin'!
>>1332841 China was enormous, though, and could stomach western and native capitalists. Not saying it's not possible, but they'd need to purge party real thorough before attempting such a thing and not risking getting couped
>>1333434 >risking getting couped Against the DGI ? Cuban secret intelligence is very strong because of the cold war, and Cuba is a small island that makes protection easy. A successful coup in Cuba is extremely difficult and unlikely.
>>1333478 Its rather surprising, but the DGI is actually one of the most advanced intelligence services in the world. You would expect that say America, or England to be there, not some Caribbean island.
