Comrades, Let me say very clearly that my previous message was not a comment on, or response to any message posted on this list. This is exactly what I said in that message, twice. If I wanted to comment on another message, I would have said so. My previous message makes a general point about revolution and violence - it has nothing to do with Cuba specifically. I think it is sadly unavoidable because it it imposed upon us. And if anyone rejected the possibility of violence as a point of principle, then this person would be in a difficult position when the left is attacked violently (but I was *not* saying that anyone on this list had said anything to that effect; I simply do not know people's views on this issue). I also said that state terrorism (even if coming from a supposedly left-wing government) must be avoided and it is right to resist against it. Let me add that I have the greatest respect - personal, intellectual and political - for every member of this list. Disagreements are part of the reason why we are here, exchanging ideas and learning from each other. alfredo.
