Carlos Franqui is now 86. Son of Cuban peasants who worked in the sugar cane fields, he was a militant from a young age. Refusing the opportunity to go to university, he became an active member of the Cuban Communist Party, which he left in 1946. As a journalist, he then joined the "Movement of the 26th July" founded by Fidel Castro, where he was in charge of propaganda at the National Direction of the Movement. He took an active part in the underground struggle in Havana. He fought side by side with Castro, Che Guevara and Cienfuegos in the Sierra Maestra where he was director of Radio Rebelde. After the victorious battle of Havana, he became director of the daily paper "Révolucion", a position that he lost a few years later. In self-exile in Italy from 1968 to 1992, he now lives in Puerto Rico.
Carlos Franqui is a crucial witness of the Cuban Revolution and its drift towards the USSR. Today, from his home in Puerto Rico, he continues to fight for democracy in Cuba.
