Fidel Castro’s desperate take on the specter of barbarism and alternatives to such

Former Cuban president Fidel Castro’s 43-minute speech to Cuba’s university students, given in Havana on 3 September of this year.  His first public speech since having undergone surgery in 2006, his comments here address the thoroughly alarming possibility of war against Iran as well as the present climate catastrophe.  Desperate in its analysis but revolutionary in its conclusions, Castro’s speech is in this sense reminiscent of Noam Chomsky’s 12 June 2009 speech at the Riverside Church in New York City.

Apologies to those who do not understand Castilian.
