Helen Jaffe, Sujatha Fernandes and Ian Ellis-Jones discuss the the July 11 protests in Cuba, the corporate media's distortions of them and what is happening in that country now.

Cuba still stands as a symbolic pole, reminding us that human society can be organised on the basis of solidarity, cooperation, and respect. This is a profound vision that stands clearly at odds with the individualist, profit-driven mantras of far-right leaders like Trump and Bolsonaro.

I spent my first days in Havana walking down the broad, leafy streets of el Vedado, going past stores with long queues but little on the shelves.

Across India, more than 40 million children work in industries making such products as bangles, fireworks, matches, carpets, glass, hosiery and leather.
