Chernobyl, Cuban Revolution

Thanks for the article on Cuba’s assistance to the victims of Stalinist mismanagement in Chernobyl. Teaching at the community college in Miami in the first decade of this century, I had several students who were among the children and youth rescued by Cuba who had taken advantage of opportunities to immigrate to the U.S., as well as several people who left that area and immigrated to the U.S. from the Ukraine and Russia after that disaster.

Even those who professed anti-communism to get into the U.S. remain amazed at the solidarity and utter humanity of the Cuban Revolution and the difference from the alienated self-centered mentality they had experienced under Stalinism, as we all have under U.S. capitalism. What wonders will humanity experience when we can all follow the road of the Cuban Revolution.
