17. Fidel's 1999 Speech at the Abssynian Baptist Church in Harlem
he spoke about change in the world and said:

...Now powerful mass movements are being created. They'll use different tactics, not Bolshivik tactics, or even our tactics, because the world has changed. The era when weapons solved problems is ending. A new period is beginning in which the people's political conscience, historical needs and ideas will change the world.

He is light years beyond anyone in this country.

Folks can listen/watch at this link. Move the slider to 19:05

Latin America has changed tremendously since he made this speech--powerful mass movements, people's political conscience, etc. All true today in LatAm as the article confirms.

Interesting that Fidel did not agree with Morales nationalizing petroleum, but his is the wisdom and perspective of his own experience in his own country.

So good to read that the GUSANO is not wanted by Cuba or the USSA. :7
