  • Is CUBA a Growing Threat to the Caribbean

    To be clear, Cuba is no longer the cold war proxy, challenging socio-political stability, but rather the country has emerged as a growing threat as a location for foreign direct investment and development inputs from the outside world. The unveiling of a mega-port in Mariel -- that famous hub for the export of Cubans to the United States -- should serve notice to Jamaica, The Bahamas and the Dominican Republic that in their midst is a trans-shipment hub that may one day soon directly compete with them for one of the few industries in which they have an advantage, which is the movement of goods to and from the US. For Jamaica, Cuba's Mariel may make it that much more difficult to find the financing and shipping partners necessary for that country to position itself as a major hub, though P...

It was as if for the first time in my life, I had the power of choice, of deciding for myself what I wanted to do. As part of that generation, I felt I could not miss out on that once-in-a-lifetime chance of capturing so much beauty and revealing them through my photographs. My pictures were born after listening to a song or after an embrace. They depict real life, freedom in its purest form--only love and music."

To be clear, Cuba is no longer the cold war proxy, challenging socio-political stability, but rather the country has emerged as a growing threat as a location for foreign direct investment and development inputs from the outside world. The unveiling of a mega-port in Mariel -- that famous hub for the export of Cubans to the United States -- should serve notice to Jamaica, The Bahamas and the Dominican Republic that in their midst is a trans-shipment hub that may one day soon directly compete with them for one of the few industries in which they have an advantage, which is the movement of goods to and from the US. For Jamaica, Cuba's Mariel may make it that much more difficult to find the financing and shipping partners necessary for that country to position itself as a major hub, though Panama Canal delays may be helpful in buying time to address environmental issues and funding needs for the locations currently under consideration. More critically, however, is the interest by entities such as the European Union (EU) and others in determining ways to work with Cuba. The fact that the EU now seeks to deepen relations with Cuba on trade and investment should be worrying to Caribbean governments and organisations. This, especially considering the increasingly fractious relationship that exists between many countries and the EU. A relationship that brings new capital and technical assistance to Cuba should not be ignored, as Cuba's efforts at free market reform offer the EU and others an opportunity to position their companies for future market openings while the wider Caribbean region continues to stagnate and lose ground as a place to do business. As it relates to the improving of EU relations with Cuba, the lifting of sanctions in 2008, visits by various EU government officials, and a push to recalibrate the relationship with the country all highlight an EU interest in expanding its role as Cuba's biggest foreign investor. A large market in need of infrastructure and private sector investment, Cuba remains largely untapped and it is opportunities for investment rather than trade that drives the EU agenda. Much like with the rest of the Caribbean, Cuba exports little to the EU. For the Caribbean, there is the perception that the region is weak in executing initiatives and, further, that it is a space seen as increasingly leaning towards mendicancy. Efforts by some countries to sue for reparations do little to position the region as friendly to an EU which, in its own evolution, now includes countries with no shared history with the region, and who are increasingly likely to view the Caribbean as hostile. Sadly, all of the above can only serve to allow EU policymakers to see Cuba as an easier partner to deal with -- even with its human rights issues -- than, in particular, the English-speaking Caribbean countries that make up Caricom.

More at Malamirrors.com Interview filmed in Lima, Peru. Mirrors is the second album by endlessly influential South London producer Mala. It follows his 2012 Brownswood release where Gilles Peterson invited the producer to soak up Cuba’s music and culture to turn the results into Mala In Cuba. But Mirrors is less Mala In Cuba Mk II and more the realisation of a creative method that works for this most understated and intuitive producer: digging deep into the roots of a culture, recording local musicians and sounds, and using the recordings as source material and storyboard for a record. The product of repeated visits to dive into Peru’s music, it revolves around tempo and flow, working local Afro-Peruvian percussionists, grassroots tap dancers and an Andean soprano into its fourteen tracks. Mala went there for a month, visiting Lima along with Cusco and the Sacred Valley just outside of the capital. “I was introduced to music from the jungle, music from the mountains, Andean sounds, native sounds, Afro-Peruvian music,” says Mala. “It all goes back to the roots and the rhythms and I related instantly. That primal rhythm is in all of us.” Dancers bring another sound to Mirrors’ palette. Colectivo Palenke are masters of Peru’s stomping battle-dance, zapateo, and their feet-first percussion graces the track titled ‘Sabateo’. On ‘Sound of the River’, meanwhile, you can hear field recordings of a stream running through the Sacred Valley and soprano-anthropologist Sylvia Falcon. It’s a fragile and human performance that soothes and uplifts in equal measure, and it’s a most subtle production.“ Mirrors is a bridge joining Croydon and Lima. It creates a link between traditional instruments made from donkey jawbone and dried-out pumpkins and the contemporary box of tricks inside Mala’s laptop. Like all bridges it links the past to the present, giving a clear view of where Mala has been – and where he’s going next. All Music Taken from Mala - Mirrors. Released on Brownswood Recordings.

Although all threats directed at the Cuban leader are taken seriously, the pro-Castro camp in the Dominican Republic believe the security risk is minimal. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) 'Well, I believe that the real guarantee (or security for Castro) is the people's mood and the support for the Cuban revolution here in the country and the attitude of the Dominican people.

One plan organised recently was at Isla Margarita (Venezuela) for the Presidential summit and Fidel has always faced that." SUPER CAPTION: Narcizo Isaconde, President of Fuerza de la Revolucion (pro-Castro organisation) The city has been the scene of heated debate between Cuban exiles who have asked the Dominican people to reject his visit, and between those who sympathise with his socialist cause. Anti Castro demonstrators clashed with supporters outside a hotel where a pro-Castro press conference was due to take place. The press conference was later cancelled. It is the first time Castro has visited the island since he took power in January of 1959, overthrowing Fulgencio Batista to set up a communist regime. During the '60s and '70s the leftist movement in the Dominican Republic rose up against its communist neighbours in a turbulent period in the country's history. Feelings still run deep among many Dominicans who have protested at Castro's presence at the meeting. But the pro-Castro movement is also strong. During his trip, the Cuban leader will visit the statue of one of the Dominican Republics great revolutionaries, Maximo Gomez. Gomez, born in the Dominican Republic, went on to lead the liberating armies of Cuba against the Spaniards. He is seen as a national symbol of freedom and liberation. To many on the island, Castro stands for the same things today. Castro is renowned for rousing deep seated loyalties wherever he goes, and this visit will be no exception.

"The first time I held a camera in my hands," Zoe confesses, "I felt something strange and unforgettable, something that I cannot describe as sensation but as emotion. It was as if for the first time in my life, I had the power of choice, of deciding for myself what I wanted to do. As part of that generation, I felt I could not miss out on that once-in-a-lifetime chance of capturing so much beauty and revealing them through my photographs. My pictures were born after listening to a song or after an embrace. They depict real life, freedom in its purest form--only love and music." Call it destiny, karma, divine intervention or human effort, we are sometimes lucky enough to be present when great things happen or to live in a time of decisive events. This is the case of Zoe Alvarez, who lived not only in the 1960s, but in Cuba in a time of significant change. One morning, the slender, delicate and very blonde Zoe got into her 1955 Chevy and headed for the usual photo session with one of the great photographers of the time, Alberto Korda, who took the world-famous picture of Che Guevara. Zoe's image was that of the spirit of the times--liberating and revolutionary. Every day she would come home dreaming of being part of a unique moment, a turning point. In the late 1960s, she had already been seduced by the irresistible force of photography and began to capture innumerable special moments and important figures in Cuba.

Spanish/Nat Cuban President, Fidel Castro, let bygones be bygones on Sunday when he held remarkable meeting former Dominican Republic strongman, Joaquin Balaguer. Castro, a loyal Communist and 92-year-old Balaguer, a conservative who ruled the Dominican Republic for 22 years put politics aside as they exchanged compliments and chatted for about 40 minutes. Castro's meeting came at the end of a five day summit of Caribbean nations who signed a trade pact to increase economic growth. This is the first time Cuba has been invited to take part in the summit. The Cuban President Fidel Castro demonstrated his strong standing in the Caribbean when he attended the regional summit held in the Dominican Republic. It is Castro's first official visit to the country since he seized power in Cuba in 1959. It's also the first time he has participated in the Caribbean Community's (CARICOM) summits. A CARICOM free trade accord, signed on Saturday, will eventually remove most tariffs between the Caribbean Community - whose 15 nations have a combined population of 14 (m) million. The trade agreement was timed to coincide with negotiations for a free trade zone encompassing the entire Western Hemisphere by 2005. The formerly insular Dominican Republic is trying to become a linchpin of the Americas. It has to its advantage an Hispanic culture, Caribbean location, and ties to the United States - where more than one (m)million Dominicans live. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) "This accord represents the second link in the chain of free trade that we have committed to achieve in our hemisphere and at the same time it represents the triumph of Caribbean solidarity" SUPER CAPTION: Leone Fernandez, Dominican President Castro, largely isolated from his neighbours since seizing power in 1959, ended a triumphant tour three weeks ago that took him to Jamaica, Barbados and Grenada. His newfound acceptance results in part from Caribbean frustration with U-S policy perceived as lacking leadership, vision and generosity. The ambitious Dominican President, Leonel Fernandez, has seized a leading role in the unprecedented Caribbean embrace of Castro - a once avowed enemy of more conservative predecessors. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) "Cuba has been participating as an observer in this event therefore we cannot predict the future of U-S foreign policy towards Cuba, the only thing we can say is that there is no connection between what we have done today and what the future of U-S policy may be" SUPER CAPTION: Leone Fernandez, Dominican President The CARICOM leaders issued a declaration at the end of the summit expressing deep disappointment with the United States over textile trading. They believe President Clinton has not made good on promises to extend the same preferences for Caribbean textiles as those enjoyed by Mexico under the North American Free Trade Agreement. The statement - a clear challenge to the U-S embargo of Cuba - extended a warm hand of friendship to Cuba and underscored the significance of Castro's participation at the summit. Castro reiterated that the small island nations of the Caribbean must oppose the unbridled capitalism he attributes to the United States, by showing a sole unity and strength. That struck a deep chord in a region where people fear the vagaries of a global free market in which their small economies cannot compete. Castro found that he also had supporters among the people of the Dominican Republic who gathered on the streets of Santo Domingo. Castro laid a wreath at the monument of the Dominican Republic's independence hero. But, that occasion ended in some clashes when police refused entry to a number photographers who had gathered to wait for Castro.

English/Nat Australian marathon swimmer Susie Maroney says she is very happy she has achieved her goal of being the first person to swim from Cuba to America. Although the 21-year-old stopped 12 miles short of Key West on the Florida coast she did make it into U-S waters and into the history books. Just hours after she was plucked from the water suffering from exhaustion, dehydration and seasickness, Susie Maroney was celebrating her marathon win that takes her into the history books. She is the first person to swim from Cuba to America even though she did not quite make it to dry land in Florida - stopping just 12 miles short of Key West. SOUNDBITE: (English) Yeah a lot of people had the message that I came short of Florida but the swim that we did was from Cuba to America and we passed American waters and were in America and that is the orificial thing that we were praying for. So when people know and I explain it to them that it is official they understand it and they are really good about it and they are happy for me. SUPER CAPTION: Susie Maroney, Australian Swimmer After 39 hours in the water and swimming 89 miles from Havana, Maroney was plucked from the sea Sunday afternoon as she entered U-S territorial waters. She swam in a wire cage attached to a motor boat to protect her from sharks. During her swim she was not allowed to grab the side of the cage, touch the bottom or get on board the boat for a break. She did not sleep, treading water for a rest and eating a liquid diet of mashed bananas and yoghurt. When a storm blew up Saturday night already harsh conditions became even worse. SOUNDBITE: (English) Because we had a very bad storm we were actually put of course there was no way we could go in the direction of Key West because it was just, totally away from it, our observer and our official told us that anywhere in America if we go past American waters ,you are in American waters you have officially made the swim and from where we finished there were islands around there so I am very happy with that and I am glad it is official. SUPER CAPTION: Susie Maroney, Australian Swimmer To the sounds of boats blowing their horns in celebration, Maroney was helped from the sea as soon as she entered U-S waters. SOUNDBITE: (English) She did in fact set the record for a swim unaided and uninterrupted from Cuba into American waters SUPER CAPTION: Tom Hetzel, Official Observer Maroney left Havana before dawn on Saturday. Within the first six miles she became seasick and suffered depression along the way and occasionally cried, but she managed to keep up her spirits. SOUNDBITE: (English) As soon as I arrived in Cuba the people were just so friendly towards me and I knew it would be fine because you know I am a swimmer and I have nothing to do with the political side of it is just a stretch of water that has not been done. SUPER CAPTION: Susie Maroney, Australian Swimmer As soon as she stopped swimming Maroney was rushed by boat and ambulance to hospital. After achieving her goal, Maroney says she has no plans to try it again.
