Radio Rebelde

In February 1958, Che Guevara, a leading revolutionary in Cuba, set up Radio Rebelde, to help the cause of the July 26th movement. Led by Fidel Castro, this movement had been encamped in the hills of east Cuba, the Sierra Maestra, fighting a guerrilla war against the Cuban army forces of General Fulgencio Batista, the Cuban Dictator. This war had been waged since December 1956. A small band of exiled Cubans had returned to the island under the leadership of Fidel Castro. They sailed from Mexico aboard the Granma. A young Argentinian doctor called Ernesto ‘Che’ Guevara, formed an integral part of this movement. ‘Che’ would eventually lead his own column in the march out of the Sierra Maestra to the Llano in the final offensive on government forces to seize control of the Cuban cities. In the new Cuban Revolutionary Government, Che would have leading roles. His literate mind and eloquence would make him the most famous revolutionary in the world. In his later job for the Cuban government he would address the United Nations as well as form a key member of the Communist ruling elite. He was to hold the position of Minister of Agriculture and he would also be the key Cuban contact in their relations with the Soviet Union, participating in particular heavily during the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962. This ‘face of the revolution’ was an idealistic thinker. He was an intellectual. A thinking man’s fighter. Che had been inspired to join the July 26th movement as a result of his motorcycle travels through Latin America where he witnessed the social struggle of the poor and felt directly the effects of US imperialism. In Guatemala, Che witnessed the CIA overthrow of the régime of Jacobo Arbenz. Che had realised the importance of the CIA’s clandestine radio operation in Guatemala. They had set up a station, La Voz de la Liberación, which broadcast propaganda. In Cuba, Batista had been utilising propaganda, manipulating the course of the war, falsely reporting casualties of the Rebels, and lying to the people in general. Censorship had been introduced and correct information was difficult to determine. Several journalists had visited the Rebel bases in the Sierra Maestra but this would not suffice for the anticipated revolution. At Che’s command post, Pata de la Mesa, some radio equipment arrived and the first broadcasts of Radio Rebelde were transmitted. Radio Rebelde was…

James Bond: Quantum of Solace (Spanish)

James Bond es espía ingles que viaja por todo el mundo luchando contra los criminales y los enemigos del Reino Unido. El vigésimo Segundo parte de Bond se llama ‘’Quantum of Solace’. Por esa película las aventuras de alta voltaje de James Bond continúan. Bond investiga una organización que está intentando a cambiar el gobierno de Bolivia. Esta organización de criminales quiere controlar la provisión del agua en el país latinoamericano. Bond trabaja en esta película con una mujer que se encuentra en Haití. La organización se llama ‘Quantum’ y MI6 (la agencia inglesa de los espías) la descubre en Italia cuando Mr White, que está bajo interrogatorio por M, intenta asesinar el jefe de Bond. Esos criminales son mucho más peligrosos de lo imaginado. Hay naturaleza secreta y oculta de villanos de la película a diferencia de las antiguas películas con los personajes de Jaws, Blofeld y Scaramanga. El peligro de que el Mr White y su la banda tiene contactos de alto nivel en el gobierno británico y la CIA, así como en los propios empleadores de Bond. Nuestro héroe tiene que funcionar clandestinamente en contra de los deseos de su país durante la mayor parte de la historia, añadiendo al suspenso. El viaje de Bond pasa por muchos países: Haití, Austria, Italia y Sudamérica. Hay otra razón porque Bond quiera encontrar Mr White es la traición de su novia, Vesper. En Casino Royale, la anterior aventura de Bond, alguien chantaje Vesper, la mujer que amaba Bond. ¡Ahora es el momento de la revancha! La mujer de Bond en esta película se llama Camille Montes. Ella tiene un rencor personal contra la siniestra organización. El principal villano se llama Dominic Greene y es él quien proporciona la última amenaza a Bond y sus aliados. Él es el presidente de una organización ecológica llamada Greene Planet y parte de la sociedad el mal. Greene era el amante de Camille y trata de tener su asesinado. Daniel Craig juega James Bond. La mujer de Bond está jugada por la actriz Olga Kurylenko. Judi Dench es, como siempre, ‘M’. Mathieu Amalric juega Greene y dice que el modelo de su mal carácter en “la sonrisa de Tony Blair y la locura de Sarkozy.” El director se llama Marc Foster. Los productores se llaman Michael G. Wilson y Barbara Broccoli. Yo creo que ‘Quantum of Solace’ es una película buena y la…

Justice for the 96 – Hillsborough

On April 15th 1989 Liverpool FC played an FA Cup Semi-Final fixture against Nottingham Forest at Sheffield Wednesday’s ground, Hillsborough. A disaster occurred at the ground and 96 Liverpool fans were killed. As a Liverpool fan who was 11 years old at the time, I wasn’t at the match, but watched at home on television. To watch your team go down playing football is one thing but to watch your supporters die at the match transcends any sport. It is horrific and Hillsborough is one of the greatest calamities in British history. Today is the twentieth anniversary of the disaster and like many people all over the world I will sadly be commemorating the tragedy. Twenty years on and families of the victims feel that they have not received justice. Justice for the 96 is an organisation at the heart of Liverpool football club. It is something I endorse and fully support. I am a keen fan of Liverpool and have watched many games at stadia all over the world. With my Aston Villa supporting Uncle I was actually in the seated area of the Hillsborough stadium a couple of months before the disaster watching Aston Villa play Sheffield Wednesday. From direct personal experience I can say that it was an eerie place. I didn’t feel safe going to the ground, walking through the streets of Sheffield and inside the stadium it didn’t impress me much, certainly the look of those enclosed terraces to the left of where I sat did scare me. At the time it was standard procedure due to the football violence problems in England, that fenced in pens were set up at football grounds. These pens kept supporters from invading the pitch. They were to tall to climb, especially with the way they angled back into the terraces. As a regular attender of rugby stadia I couldn’t understand why the supporters had to be stopped from going on the pitch. At rugby games the most exciting part of the match as a young fan was when the final whistle blew and you could charge onto the pitch to get your favourite players’ autographs. Football was a more sinister sport. Liverpool had been part of the Heysel Stadium disaster of 1985 where 39 people died, a clear demonstration of how dangerous a sport football can be. At Hillsborough, even though Liverpool had a larger support than Nottingham…

Vestal virgins are dancing around the sacred fire in preparations for an exciting summer of music festivals. In the UK at this time of year bands are extremely busy hounding festival promoters in order to fill up their summer calendars. The winter hibernation is over and the whole music industry comes to life. The Miami Winter Music conference has just finished and DJs and dance acts are groggily filling planes across the world, returning with their tales of mayhem, and the tracks which will be lacing the summer dancefloors from the Punta Del Este to the streets of San Antonio. The creative spirit comes alive in spring, as flowers blossom and trees flood the countryside with green luminescence from their returning leaves. Like squirrels just run out of nuts, here at KryKey we are plaguing the landscape in search of new food to feast on as we bask in the sun’s rays. At festivals across the globe there is a mad rush by emerging bands and artists to fill the bill in new stages. They need to showcase their music and gain new fans. We have decided to support these emerging artists and have opened the floor of four prime KryKey radio stations for this purpose. London Web Radio, Desert One, Oz Radio and DJ, are all seeking out music from artists to fill the airwaves. We believe that exposing new talent to the masses is a critical aspect of the music industry. Our growing radio network now has a significant impact on the music industry (there are now over 230 global KryKey radio stations) and we…

Cambodia and the Khmer Rouge – Beauty and the Beast?

Last week the trial began of Comrade Duch, one of five former Khmer Rouge senior personnel to go before a special UN-led war crimes tribunal, investigating the atrocities that were committed in Cambodia during the 1970s. I have studied Cambodia in depth and find it a very interesting subject so I thought it opportune to include an article in the blog. The ancient Angkor kingdom prospered much during the Middle Ages and leaves us remnants today of a magnificent Khmer civilization which was highly advanced and produced some of the greatest architecture ever known to our planet. The highlight of this culture can be seen in the magnificence of Angkor Wat which is one of the most architecturally precise monuments of all time and lies locked away in the Cambodian jungle. During the 1970s, when the US was fighting the North Vietnamese, neighbouring Cambodia became involved in the conflict. As a result of Cambodian government policies at the time, the US were carpet bombing much of the country. The King of Cambodia, Norodom Sihanouk, sided with the political opposition in an attempt to save his country from peril. With massive rural support the Khmer Rouge army, led by Pol Pot, entered the Cambodian capital Phnom Penh on 17th April 1975, and seized control of the state. What followed in Cambodia is one of the most startling incidents in human history and resulted in the deaths of approximately 2 million people out of a population of 7.3 million. The Khmer Rouge were communists and had developed their political theories through the study of marxism in foreign universities. Most of the Khmer Rouge leadership had in fact studied in Paris, the capital of the former colonial masters of French IndoChina. Pol Pot, however, the regime’s leader had remained in Cambodia where he had built up his armed forces to a position whereby they were able to seize power. The Khmer Rouge had developed a version of Marxism loosely based on that of Chairman Mao, who had successfully swept his Red Army into power in China in very recent memory. The Khmer Rouge declared Cambodia as the People’s Republic of Kampuchea and set about instantly imposing their political ideals. Under the guise of protecting the people from the ongoing carpet bombing by the Americans, the Khmer Rouge forcibly removed the entire population of Phnom Penh, and indeed the other major cities, into the…
