HAVANA.- Cuba’s adversaries are warned about the danger of “totalitarianism“in the agreement signed between the governments of Colombia y Cuba in matters of education.
Cuba and Colombia signed a memorandum of “exchange of good practices in public policies, programs, experience and knowledge” in the field of Education.
The memorandum of understanding was signed on December 4 between the Secretariat of Education in Bogotá and the Ministry of Education of the Republic of Cuba and established the terms of a strategic alliance in this field.
According to the agreement, the collaboration consists of curricular design and pedagogical monitoring plans, programs for postgraduate academic training for teachers, the strengthening of family capacities for parenting and the focus on human rights in public education.
The president of Corriente Martiana, Moisés Leonardo Rodríguez, said that the memorandum draws attention to the human rights approach and warned that that is the danger.
“That method of human rights is used there to praise the so-called achievements of the revolution and that space is used to then show that the capitalist system is a system that, from its very design, is made to violate the human rights of the people ,” he Rodríguez, reviewed martinoticias.com.
He added that it would be “the entry key” for “ideological and political interference” and prepare the conditions “for what the Sao Paulo Forum proposes… a totalitarian system in Colombia.”
According to its founders, the Sao Paulo Forum “intends to create a set of concrete actions to deepen the rights and demands of the peoples of the world, in addition to confronting imperialism.”
For his part, the general coordinator of the opposition Cuban Reflection Movement, Librado Linares, doubted the good intentions of Havana’s collaboration with the South American country.
“In recent years, the regime has tried to create soft influences to continue exporting its arsenal of ideas, the rhetoric of Castro, the budgets based on the totalitarian Cuban regime and then it will happen that this president (Colombian Gustavo Petro) likes to use a more trained partner, who has experience in how to mentally colonize the student because education is a powerful weapon,” he said.
“In Cuba an educational service is provided, but as a tool of domination to indoctrinate, colonize and mobilize the student body in favor of the regime and at the same time prevent protests and other forms of demand from the student body that happens at. any level of education,” he said.
Linares also emphasized the “human rights approach to public education.”
“I do not doubt that all this is a screen for Cuban teachers to influence and shape Colombian teachers politically, legally and culturally in front of a possible project of a ‘new man’ or a something similar that Petro is looking for in Colombia” , he introduced.
