Elian Gonzalez joins Cuba’s Young Communists

Filed under: Immigration,Politics — Tranimal @ 4:56 pm


The Cuban boy at the center of an international custody battle eight years ago has joined Cuba’s Young Communist Union.

Communist youth newspaper Juventud Rebelde quotes Elian Gonzalez as saying he will never let down ex-President Fidel Castro and his brother Raul Castro, who succeeded Fidel earlier this year.

Now 14, Elian was 6 when Miami relatives lost their fight to keep him in the United States and he was returned to Cuba in mid-2000 with his father.

HAHAHA. I feel like Elian just stuck it to US’s faces for what happened. Irony.



  1. Oh Tranimal. Alanis Morisette has failed you as the U.S. had failed Elian Gonzalez’s family. I’d say this is more of a self-fulfilling prophecy.
