Havana, Aug 9 – Two books will be launched in this capital on August 13 and 14, to honor the leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro, on his 87th birthday.
“Fidel Castro, soldado de las ideas” (Fidel Castro, a soldier of ideas), “Tecnologias y medios de comunicacion” (Technology and media), and “Seleccion tematica 1959-2011” (1959-2011 Thematic Selection), by Omar Perez Solomon, will be launched on August 13 in the capital’s Cuba Pavilion “Salon de Mayo”, the Cuban Book Institute stated.
The book includes a selection of texts taken from speeches, reports, and interviews, categorized by topics such as free speech, commercial advertising, access and distribution of content on the Internet, digital divide, brain drain, and the recreation industry.
On the other hand, Serbian journalist and writer Dragoslava Koprivica will launch on Wednesday, August 14, the Spanish edition of “El inmortal Castro y el linaje serbio” (The Immortal Castro and the Serbian descent), at the headquarters of the Cuban Institute of Friendship with the Peoples.
The volume, which makes a literary and historical review focused on Fidel Castro’s personality, is also dedicated to the five Cuban antiterrorist fighters tried and convicted in the United States to high prison terms.
Gerardo Hernandez, Ramon Labañino, Fernando Gonzalez, Antonio Guerrero and Rene Gonzalez were detained in Miami in 1998, for alerting their country on plans by violent groups based in southern Florida, whose actions have caused more than 5,000 dead and disabled people on the island in the last 50 years.
Rene Gonzalez is in Cuba after renouncing his U.S. citizenship, a requirement set by U.S. authorities to modify the conditions of supervised release he should comply with after he was released from prison in October 2011.
