Spanish

Tras la muerte de Fidel Castro, a los 90 años, muchos cubanos han iniciado los nueve días de luto por el que fue el líder de su país. Sin embargo, para algunos cubanoamericanos, su fallecimiento representa más bien el fin simbólico de uno de los personajes más prolíficos de la historia.
Su record en abusos de derechos humanos, así como el hecho de haber destruido la economía del país bajo su medio siglo de mandato, fue el catalizador de un éxodo masivo de más de un millón de cubanos a los Estados Unidos.

After the death of Fidel Castro, at the age of 90, many Cubans have started the nine days of mourning for which he was the leader of their country. However, for some Cuban-Americans, his death represents rather the symbolic end of one of the most prolific characters in history.

His record of human rights abuses, as well as the fact that he destroyed the country's economy in his half-century, was the catalyst for a massive exodus of more than a million Cubans to the United States.

Che Guevara? Fidel Castro? Are they just icons or men in stickers? In a moment where the Left wing movements in Latin America are losing power against Right-Wing governments – Kirchner against Macri in Argentina, Mujica against Tabaré Vazquez in Uruguay; Ricardo Lagos in Chile, maybe –  , we should ask ourselves what Latin America populations remembers from Cuban revolution of 1959?  As reported in Spanish newspaper El Mundo.

What happens when an artist tries to understand a politician? Famous film-maker Spike Lee interviews Senator Bernie Sanders to discuss Donald Trump victory, what the Democrats did wrong, and how the US is going to survive 2017.

Spike Lee: Let me ask you another question. How can you tell another country that they’ve got to pay for a wall? Or fences? How does that work?

The US needs to hire more Mexican workers instead of deporting them, according to many owners of small businesses around the nation. From small construction companies in Dallas, Texas, to chains of Mexican restaurants in San Francisco and orange farms in Florida: all these small businesses confirm they are dependent on low skilled workers (like Mexican workers) to keep growing, according to a report elaborated by The Wall Street Journal.
