Tricontinental issue no. 154 contains several articles commemorating the 150th anniversary of the birth of Cuban revolutionary fighter José Martí. These include "José Martí, Latin American Patriot" by Armando Hart, who is a founding member of the July 26 Movement, and served as minister of culture for 20 years until 1997, and "Our America," written by Martí in 1891.
The issue includes articles on the fight against the Free Trade Area of the Americas pact; the experience of a Cuban doctor who volunteered as an internationalist fighter in Guinea Bissau to fight for the liberation of that country from Portuguese colonial rule in the mid-1960s; and a letter by René González Sehwerert describing the impact that Che Guevara’s example has had on his life. González is one of the five Cuban revolutionaries imprisoned in the United States on frame-up conspiracy charges.
There is also an article by Ulises Estrada, the director of Tricontinental Editions, announcing for the first time ever the identity of "Mercy"--the Cuban agent who worked under Che Guevara in Bolivia and who is referred to by Che in his Bolivian Diary.
Tricontinental, which has a cover price of $5, is stocked by Pathfinder bookstores (see page 12).
The magazine can also be ordered through www.pathfinderpress.com.
