CDR Meeting, Las Tunas, Cuba. By Martin Reid (Canada). Camara: Lumix LX7


How you can participate in the Photo of the Day

HAVANA TIMES – You don’t have to be a professional photographer, just send a picture (in black and white or color), that you consider with quality to be published. Indicate where it was taken (city and country), type of camera or cell phone you used and a short description of it.

For our format it is better that the photos are of horizontal orientation, since we have problems with verticals when they are on the cover.

  • Jap, further to your question, the CDR was established on September 28, 1960 when Fidel Castro declared its purpose as:
    “A collective system of revolutionary vigilance so that everybody knows who lives on every block, what they do on every block, what relations they had with the tyranny, in what activities are they involved, and with whom they meet.”
    It was based upon the East German Stasi with guidance from the KGB. There is a President of the CDR on every block of every village, town and city in Cuba. Reports are made by those Presidents to the Ministry of the Interior – actually to Alejandro Castro Espin, Raul’s son, who is Head of Security both internal and external (the “Cuban Five” for example) upon the activity of every person living on their block at a maximum interval of one year – usually quarterly. MININT maintains a computer record of every person – I have by chance, seen my wife’s one and it is detailed – five pages, including even our date of marriage.
