A Ray of Hope

by Teresa You

Teresa YouWhen I was nine, my parents were arrested before my own eyes from our home in Beijing. They weren’t criminals: just Falun Gong practitioners.

My mother, a hospital worker, had just been looking for a spiritual practice, a way to live around her many illnesses. My father, a professor and Chinese Communist Party (CCP) member, followed suit after he saw my mother’s improvement in health.

When I was younger, my mom would tell me stories about how people would commit suicide during the Cultural Revolution because they were so humiliated. And before that, how the landlords had all of their money taken away, simply because everyone had to be “the same.”

My parents used to tell me these stories about other people, but when the Falun Gong persecution began, it finally happened to them too—even though my dad was a Party member who taught communism, socialism, and Marxism in school.

Diálogo Político publica amplio informe sobre los Derechos Humanos en Cuba



Pese a la reforma constitucional de 2018, los derechos

fundamentales siguen muy restringidos.

La reforma aprobada en 2018 dio mayor sustento a los derechos fundamentales en la Constitución cubana; un tenue rayo de esperanza para la población. Pero, en la práctica, los cubanos siguen sometidos a fuertes limitaciones. Sobre todo la libertad de expresión y la libertad de asamblea se limitan considerablemente. De hecho, el Gobierno las impide activamente. El lento progreso digital en Cuba y la crisis causada por el coronavirus generan aun más restricciones para los cubanos.

En Cuba los derechos fundamentales no son evidentes

Desde los tiempos de Fidel Castro, el gobierno cubano ha tenido una visión muy limitada de lo que son los derechos fundamentales y cómo la población cubana puede gozar de ellos. Si bien la reforma constitucional de 2018 garantiza más derechos fundamentales, dos años después la esperanza de que se incrementen las libertades en el país no se ha hecho realidad.

Good and Evil Clash at the Feet of Saint Louis the King

St. Louis, July 1.– On a blistering June 27 in St. Louis, Mo. forces of good and evil clashed at the feet of a majestic statue of the city’s patron. Fueled by emotion over substance, around 150 Black Lives Matters (BLM) proponents cried obscene slogans to a tribal drumbeat demanding that the statue be torn down, despite its iconic status. Indeed, the statue is formally named: “The Apotheosis of Saint Louis.”

In the face of this, around 50 faithful Catholics arrived at noontime, to pray the rosary in unison, beseeching heaven to maintain the statue and thus, defend St. Louis’ Catholic heritage. Six or seven priests were among the faithful. The contrast between the two groups was razor-sharp.
