Elian Gonzalez Grown Up, Leaves Cuba, Speaks About ‘Uncle Fidel’

“Fourteen years after he made headlines as the subject of a bitter international custody battle, Gonzalez spoke to CNN on Tuesday.

It’s his first trip abroad since the U.S. government removed him at gunpoint from his relatives’ home in Miami and, after a legal battle, sent him back to Cuba to live with his father.

Gonzalez, who turned 20 last week, was just 6 years old when he was found clinging to an inner tube after the tiny boat he was traveling in from Cuba sank on the way to the United States. Gonzalez’s mother and nine other people in the boat drowned.”* The Young Turks hosts Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian break it down, including Cenk’s dramatic confrontation with Elian Gonzalez protesters in Miami during the height of the story.

U.S. President Barack Obama arrived on Sunday in Cuba, in a historic visit that could mark the beginning of a new era in U.S. relations with its neighbor after more than 50 years of Cold War-era animosity.
The plane touched down at 4:19 p.m. local time at Jose Marti International Airport, where Obama was greeted by Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez as well as other Cuban and U.S. officials.
Obama descended the plane accompanied by First Lady Michelle Obama, while holding an umbrella overhead due to a light rain coming down in Havana.
Havana Vieja, or Old Havana, the capital’s historic district, will be the first place Obama visited on Sunday on a walking tour of key sites, such as Havana’s Cathedral, Plaza Vieja and San Francisco Square, as well as the Museum of the City.
He will be accompanied by his wife and two daughters during the tour, which highlights the history, cultural significance, and beauty of the city, which is declared a World Heritage Site by the United Nations in 1982.
On Monday, Obama will lay a wreath at a memorial to Cuba’s national hero Jose Marti at Revolution Square before meeting with Cuban President Raul Castro.
The U.S. head of state will be welcomed by Castro at an official ceremony, before the two leaders hold a closed-door meeting, after which they are expected to hold a joint press conference.
Also on Monday, Obama will meet with Cuban and American entrepreneurs to hear about their experiences and explore opportunities to develop long-term relationships, despite the economic and trade embargo Washington continues to impose on Cuba.
Prior to his trip, the Cuban government ruled out the possibility of offering political concessions to Washington as a precondition to restoring full bilateral ties with the United States.
Havana stressed Washington’s economic and financial blockade of the island remains in force despite new measures announced last week by the White House to relax aspects of the embargo.
The visit which ends on Tuesday, the first by a U.S. president since 1928, marks the most important moment since Obama and Castro agreed in December 2014 to restore diplomatic ties and end half a century of hostility following Cuba’s revolution, which ousted a pro-American government in 1959.

The birthplace of Fidel Castro “Casa Natal de Fidel Castro” in Birán (Cuba) is now a museum

At the entrance of the birtplace (museum) you will be assigned a guide that shows you the property and gives a lot of information in English. Birán is a small village in the municipality Mayarí of the province Holguín, Eastern Cuba. The place is best known as the birthplace of Fidel Castro and his brother Raúl. They were respectively born in 1926 and 1931 on the 93 km² estate of their father. The estate, where the birthplace of Fidel and Raul Castro is, opened in November 2002 as a museum. If you visit this museum you must ensure you have your passport with you. You can`t pay with dollars in Cuba for years, but the old tickets are still used. The last visit of Fidel Castro took place on September 23, 2003, on the centenary of his mother Lina Ruz who died in 1963. You can see the bed where Lina Ruz gave birth of each of her seven children, but also the crib where the Castro `s the first months of their lives slept. A total of 1.175 museum objects are managed by the National Heritage Board of the Ministry of Culture. The estate was originally founded in 1915 by the father, Angel Castro Argiz,
as sugarcane plantation. Various properties of the family are still on the estate and a primary school. The school had only one classroom. The road to Santiago de Cuba ran over the property and for that reason he built a hotel, pub, post office, shop and arena for cockfights. The arena for cockfighting and the housing for workers from Haiti. The workers spent the money they earned in the pub, shop or at the cockfights. Eleven of the 27 original buildings have been preserved and the estate has been declared a National Monument in 2009. The original wooden house of Angel Castro Argiz was destroyed by a fire in 1954, but there was a replica built in 1974. On the estate are buried Angel Castro Argiz, Lina Ruz González, the grandmother and other family. The President Raúl Castro wants to be buried in the Mausoleum of the Frank País Second Front, in the mountains of Santiago de Cuba, with his wife Vilma Espin.

Montreal City is a place of movement, talent, and a great multi culture of music and arts all under one roof, it is also a place where anything can be seen or herd, especially in the underground subways.
Moving back and fourth everyday commuters go from their homes to their work and then from their workplace back to their homes; also when commuting they also hear in the distance or up close when passing by the special different talented performers that love to perform each day in the metro, each performer has their own special unique way of performing each day, from playing a guitar, flute, piano, sax, or even singing out loud.
Each performer performs for money and also to be heard or remembered.
Me as a photographer and video editor, I love to capture and preserve these special moments in time that I come across in my journeys.
