The unbearable hypocrisy of the Party of the European Left towards Cuba

According to news reports, in the inauguration of the 5th Congress of the Party of the European Left (EL), which takes place in Berlin, the participants kept a minute of silence as a tribute to the late Cuban revolutionary Fidel Castro

The Party of the European Left, which is composed by social democratic (e.g. SYRIZA, Die Linke etc.) and opportunist parties (e.g. French Communist Party), tries to pose as a "friend" of Socialist Cuba. What an irony!

However, in 2013, the same "European Left" was applauding the known Cuban anticommunist Guillermo Farinas when he was receiving the Sakharov Prize at the European Parliament! The award ceremony, back in 2013, had been attended by Gabi Zimmer, member of the German 'Die Linke' party and president of the GUE/NGL European Parliamentary Group.
