Tax reform and manipulators

Written by

As if it was an April fools´ joke, the National Government sanctioned a new tax reform last December 28, after an intense controversy, leaving in the air the feeling that none, not even the Ministry of Finance that had presented it, was fully satisfied with it. The criticisms sprang from all sectors, although in the end the majority seemed to conclude that it was a necessary evil, to which we must be resigned to in any chase. Another toad that the country will have to swallow[1].

No other man in history has ever battled so much for the interests of mankind. Until the last moments of his life, Fidel serenely warned of the dangers that beset everyone on account of the greed of big capital.

Victoria Sandino: To talk about Comrade Alfonso is to talk about love

In the morning of Wednesday the 28th, before heading for Havana, Father Carlos, a Jesuit, director of Villa Claver, the spiritual retreat house where we were staying on our trip to Cartagena, asked all present FARC delegates to gather in order to take a picture. With him and all the staff that works at the house.

The unfortunate presence of Kfir planes on the day of the signing of the Final Havana Agreement has already been widely discussed and commented.

And so the Havana Final Agreement was signed, this time in earnest, with no possibility for either of the parties to back down. It is final, and, above opponents of all sizes, nothing can stop the effects of the agreement. The armed struggle of the FARC is over, henceforth our only weapon is the word, said Timo with energy. And so it will.

Today we went to the Embassy of the Republic of Colombia in Havana. When walking through the door I could not help but to remember my international law teacher at the National University. By a fiction of law, the headquarters of embassies are considered part of the national territory, thus having inviolability status. I told myself that I was in Colombia, and so it was.
