An attempted color revolution is currently underway in Cuba. The media has claimed “hundreds” of the 11 million Cubans are protesting seeking to overthrow the socialist government. Videos have circulated showing tens or at most a hundred protestors. In response, president of Cuba has called for defenders of the revolution to take to the streets to counter protest and show the popular support for the government. The counter-protests seem much larger then the anti-government protests, chanting “I am Fidel” and “This road for Fidel.” These videos are not being circulated on popular US news or social media. Instead, hundreds or thousands of seemingly fake bot accounts swarm Twitter threads in disdain for the government.
The Communist Party of Cuba (PCC) has over 700,000 thousands members, consisting of ~6.25% of the Cuban population. Furthermore, over 8.4 million Cubans (~75% of the population) are members of the Committees for the Defense of the Revolution (CDR). The Cuban people are overwhelming in support of the Cuban revolutionary government.
A few weeks ago the Director of the CIA met with Brazilian President Bolsonaro to discuss the pink tide in Latin America. Haitian President Moïse was assassinated in his home less than a week ago. And now this weak attempted color revolution in Cuba. Make no mistake, the Yankee Empire is scared of a red Latin America and they will try their hardest to destroy all progress. “America is back.”
Para todos mis hermanos y hermanas en Cuba,
Hasta la victoria, siempre! Venceremos!

Rules for /c/communism
Rules that visitors must follow to participate. May be used as reasons to report or ban.
This subreddit is here to facilitate discussion between marxists.
There are other communities aimed at helping along new communists. This community isn’t here to convert naysayers to marxism.
If you are a member of the police, armed forces, or any other part of the repressive state apparatus of capitalist nations, you will be banned.
Do not attempt to justify your use of oppressive language.
Doing this will almost assuredly result in a ban. Accept the criticism in a principled manner, edit your post or comment accordingly, and move on, learning from your mistake.
We believe that speech, like everything else, has a class character, and that some speech can be oppressive. This is why speech that is patriarchal, white supremacist, cissupremacist, homophobic, ableist, or otherwise oppressive is banned.
TERF is not a slur.
Posts that are low-effort or otherwise irrelevant will be removed.
This is not a place to engage in meta-drama or discuss random reactionaries on lemmy or anywhere else.
This includes memes and circlejerking.
This includes most images, such as random books or memorabilia you found.
We ask that amerikan posters refrain from posting about US bourgeois politics. The rest of the world really doesn’t care that much.
Posts asking entry-level questions will be removed.
Questions like “What is Maoism?” or “Why do Stalinists believe what they do?” will be removed, as they are not the focus on this forum.
Marxists of all tendencies are welcome here.
Refrain from sectarianism, defined here as unprincipled criticism. Posts trash-talking a certain tendency or marxist figure will be removed. Circlejerking, throwing insults around, and other pettiness is unacceptable.
If criticisms must be made, make them in a principled manner, applying Marxist analysis.
The goal of this subreddit is the accretion of theory and knowledge and the promotion of quality discussion and criticism.
