This is a GUEST article - this time by Antonia Darder and Peter Mayo.   Antonia is an internationally recognized scholar, artist, poet, activist, and public intellectual. She holds the Leavey Presidential Endowed Chair in Ethics and Moral Leadership in the School of Education at Loyola Marymount University. She also is Professor Emerita of Educational Policy, Organization, and Leadership at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Peter is Head of the Department of Educational Studies at the University of Malta.

Antonia and Peter interrogate the ways in which the Cubans have  resisted and adapted to almost 50 years of US embargoes, and economic oppression. Without glossing over the internal social and cultural restrictions that the Cubans have had to adopt to avoid and prevent the internal sabotage of their socialist regime, they detail the ways in which the government has developed alternaticve and non-exploitative economic relations withy other countries - offering a real alternative to the free-market capitalist system that has driven us to the brink of extinction. It was first published in Counterpunch Online, 7th-9th October 2011. To download the PDF click HERE.
