Raul Castro tells Cuban reporters on Sunday that he and Fidel, too feeble to stand up now, are heartened by the Chicago teachers’ strike, which started today.
Fidel and I send moral support to our comrades in Chicago in their ongoing struggle against capitalist oppression. We also send a High Five to President Obama for the great work he’s been doing, and we wish him well in the November elections.
The Cuban crowd chanted:
Viva Fidel! Viva Obama! Remember Bain Capital! Phooey to liberty!
Chicago teachers say they’re mad as hell, and they’re not going to take it anymore!
In the White House, Obama was overheard to say: You go, girls!
