On Saturday evening, December 2, the Swedish public TV broadcasting company, SVT, will show a four hour salute in honour of Fidel Castro and Cuban communism. According to SVT December 2 is a day of celebration. It is Castro’s eightieth birthday and the fiftieth anniversary of the revolution. Because of this SVT has put together a four hour programme with documentaries about Cuba. A panel of so called experts will also share their opinions.
I think this finally settles the debate about whether Swedish public television is having a strong socialist bias or not. None of the documentaries will bring up the most apparent problem that the Cuban people suffer from, the absence of basic human rights. None of the invited “experts” are Cuban dissidents or others with a critical standpoint. Rather, the guests are communists themselves and outspoken supporters of Castro and his regime.
It is an outrage! To say the least. That is why I write this post in English. It is my hope that someone out there, outside the small pond named Sweden, should react to what is going on here. It is a cry for help. Come and see the madness that is going on in my country! Help us, please, because we do not know what we are doing!
