Cuban Ambassador Mingles With Local Marxists

While most ambassadors to New Zealand spend their thime addressing Rotary and the NZ Institute of International Affairs, Castro's local representative mingles with the Marxists.

Last week comrade Robaina was up in Auckland at Matt McCarten's UNITE HQ meeting the Auckland far left.

From the Global Peace & Justice Auckland newsletter.

Wednesday, 6 February, 11am, Unite Union, Level 12, Unite House, 300 Queen St

MORNING TEA TO WELCOME CUBAN AMBASSADOR: José Luis Robaina Garcia is the Ambassador of the Republic of Cuba. Mr Garcia’s last posting was as Minister Counsellor in the Cuban Embassy in the People’s Republic of China. From 2004 until now Mr Garcia was the Director of the Centre of Asia and Oceania Studies within the Department of International relations of the Central Committee of the Cuban Communist Party. He will be Cuba’s first Ambassador resident in New Zealand. CUBAN COFFEE, TEA, CAKES

UNITE has already admitted seeking money from Venezuela. Will they seek a little Cuban "aid" as well?

I'll repeat an earlier question.

Why has such a prominent servant of Fidel Castro been assigned to a strategic backwater like New Zealand?

Looks like Exxon is going to teach Chavez a lesson in international law.

Don't worry about this Cuban ambassador.

He's toast when Fidel croaks.

But none of Mccarten and Treen's SW friends were there- some of them think that Cuba is a State Capitalist dictatorship. Rumours abound, however, that SW is poised to change its position on this analysis. Die hard State Caps might dig in their heels though, drawing a "Neither Washington nor Havana" line in the sand over capitualting to the Castro regime.

Gee, an ambassador who moves beyond the cocktail circuit!
Let's all shit ourselves and cower in corners.

Thanks for that SWatch-that's interesting.

I can see how the Venezuela/Cuba thing must be creating some problems for the IST.

Fried of Amerika.....since when did any American corporations have respect for anything, let alone international law ?

That's why, along with the efforts of that guffawing thicko The Chickenhawk, the master of the Texan BBQ, and the master of "Baghdad BBQ of Iraqi Babies" come to think of it, that's why the USA is universally hated.

A "nation" so-called on the way down !
