Here is the whole interview with Fidel Castro, translated into english. Isn't that what this thread is supposed to be about? I had a really hard
time finding it.
Link to full interview, with Fidel Castro, July 2010
I found him to be very rational and insightful. Although the translation in the beginning of the video is very bad, making it a little hard to listen
to. He does not seem at all senile or ranting, like some MSM reports declare him to be.
In my search for the full video, I also ran across some old interviews from 20/20, and these bits caught my attention.
1977 Barbara Walters interviewed Fidel Castro, he stated,
"I have nothing to hide. If you asked us if a paper could appear here (in Cuba) against Socialism, I could say honestly no, It could not appear. It
would not be allowed...In that sense, we do not have the freedom of the press that you possess in the U.S."
2002 Barbara Walters interviewed Fidel Castro, she stated,
"You still do not have freedom of the press... Newspapers, television, everything is controlled."
"have you ever seen a demonstration in Cuba that has been suppressed with tear gas?"
They then proceed to argue about how each country "allows" or does not allow demonstrations.
My point is that while Castro may have been a bit tyrannical, at least he was honest about it. The US and Canada profess that they allow free speech
in the press, and in public demonstration. But if that is really true:
Why do so many of us come to a site like ATS in search of "the truth" ?
Why are we so skeptical of things said in main stream media?
Why did the G20 security budget, aimed at suppressing "violent" protesters, ring in at $930 million???????
