Viva July 26! 20 Reasons to Support Cuba

http://www.systemiccapital.com/20-reasons-to-support-cuba/

[Cuba] is an exceptionally safe country, with very little in the way of violent crime. With a high level of participation in local administration, social stability, social welfare, low unemployment and a media that promotes unity rather than disunity, Cuba’s sense of community is something that visitors quickly notice.

Ms. Assata Shakur mentions this, and contrasts it with the US:

“My experience in the United States was living in a society that was very much at war with itself, that was very alienated. People felt not part of a community, but like isolated units that were afraid of interaction, of contact, that were lonely. People didn’t build that sense of community that I found is so rich here [in Cuba]. One of the things that I was able to take from this experience was just how lovely it is to live with a sense of community. To live where you can drop in the street and a million people will come and help you. That is to me a wealth that you can’t find, you can’t buy, you have to build. You have to build it within yourself to be capable of having that attitude about your neighbours, about how you want to live on this planet.”

By Overpass Light Brigade: I watched as the police dragged this woman down the hall and onto the elevator, despite the fact that she had recently had hip surgery. She was pleading with the police to either let her use her crutches or support her weight. They didn't care!
