    Assembly in Ciego de Ávila


    With the Balance Assembly of the Provincial Committee of the Party in Ciego de Ávila, this March 25, concludes a balance process that has been taking place since November throughout the territory.                                          

    The critical look of the Report that will be presented to the more than 150 delegates and guests reveals the difficulties of the province in a peculiarly difficult year and some indicators collected in it come to confirm it.

    Exports fell short of expectations; especially sugar and coal. Net sales failed and entities with losses grew. The mortality of cattle increased, the birth rate only reached 46 percent and, on top of that, some four million liters of milk were not collected, even affecting the delivery to medical diets. Investments remained at 67 percent and the income of the territory did not allow covering the expenses, the deficit exceeded 2,700 million pesos.

    These are just some of the effects that aggravated the pandemic, the lack of resources and liquidity. Hence, the Party calls for a change of mentality to transform the work of companies and productive entities and recover economic indicators that allow sustaining the social work of the Revolution; and call for "a critical analysis of what remains to be done."

    This meeting on Friday, March 25, was preceded by the Party's municipal assemblies, exchanges to which Invasor gave detailed coverage and which it now summarizes in some of its main proposals.

    The first was on November 7. So we said that Ciro Redondo can (and should) do more.

    Such assertion rested, above all, on sugar cane, a fundamental line of that municipality that has not yet been able to couple Bioelectric and Central after many years.

    Producing sugar and generating electricity has not been a happy combination. Invasor already reflected it during one of the tours of the deputy Prime Minister, Jorge Luis Tapia Fonseca, to that enclave.

    However, the tricky part of the sector occurred long before that process: there is a lack of cane. There are more than 8,000 hectares (ha) that do not have grass planted and should have been planted... and a good part, even cut.

    Later, in Florencia, we said that the debate had a bunch of issues, and the term tobacco also qualified the process that could not focus only on the leaf, due to the "bunch" of problems.

    Invasor supported it with data from the Agricultural Company, located in the municipality, of the TABACUBA Group: “of the 26 units that are subordinated to that instance, 13 operate at a loss. And although all of them do not have tobacco as their fundamental activity, the environment is, precisely for this reason, worrying; because of the income not captured and because of the food shortage that this generates (or the obligation to “import” them from other territories of Ciego de Ávila)”.

    That was the verbatim quote of a process that also focused on food production and highlighted, however, the quality of the tobacco wrapper. Moreover, Invasor has just confirmed it in a recent note.By mid-November, we said that Chambas had the challenge of getting ahead on her own.

    We support it in the second paragraph of that informative note. Unadorned: “That the territory reaches a self-sufficiency of 29.2 pounds per capita of agricultural products, close to the goal of 30, is a positive result, but not complacent. The statistics are understood in this way, when in several communities, the supplies are not constant and the municipality fails to plant rustic crops such as cassava, sweet potato, taro and banana in all its varieties.

    In the other aiming sector, they presented a similar situation to Ciro Redondo; cane was missing. The Invasor reporter pointed this out when he pointed out that if the Enrique Varona were started up, after three years of being paralyzed, the available cane would be insufficient given the low yields that the plantations present.

    Then Invasor went to Primero de Enero and alleged that they had to put their feet on the ground there.

    The metaphor was exact; especially for the sugar cane growers that presented barely 25 percent of the hectares covered. The example of the Arnaldo Ramírez Agricultural Company contrasted with them and its director highlighted some ingredients of the “formula”.

    "It is that we are still waiting for chemicals and fertilizers, and it has been shown that, without replacing them, biological means, such as earthworm humus, for example, help a lot," Jorge Maceo Lorenzo admitted at the time.

    Meanwhile, in Baraguá, they opted for a Party that influences the solution of problems.

    During the coverage of that assembly, the great potential of the municipality in the agricultural sector was insisted on, with some 1,800 idle hectares (ha) that can be planted with crops, such as cassava, taro, sweet potato and plantain, which do not require many inputs.

    However, the common thread that guided the debates in the conclave, Invasor said, was “how communist militants, from their workplace, can act more decisively in solving problems despite the serious limitations they face; the keys are in three words: order, discipline and demand”.

    Later, on November 29, we pointed out that Bolivia was sailing in a sea of ​​difficulties. The housing situation in a territory hit by Irma's jolts reflected this. Of the 204 houses that had to be completed, only 26 had been delivered. The number "beat her hard", also, due to the drama of a context that Invasor remembered at the time.

    "Four years ago Irma took 681 homes and more than half are still pending, so the delay in the execution postpones a time that, for many, is already too long."

    The debts there reached the fishing industry, which failed to fulfill its capture plan, entangled by an epidemic focus that had it for two months with nine fishermen. As much as their indicators were enviable, they managed to deliver a ton of fish with the consumption of only 36 liters of oil, and the line of assortments increased to eight, time was not in their favor. With the delay of almost 90 days, and one month before closing the year, the catch was around 232 tons and the annual plan was still fixed at 300.

    Then, we told that Venezuela was on the way to transformation. In addition, the indicators in fishing evidenced it. The lack of fuel allowed the shrimpers to sail for two months, out of the six they had planned, and, even so, of the 8 million dollars they had to raise (per plan), they ended up contributing more than 10.

    Such merit, Invasor pointed out, did not rest on the shrimp changing its price in the international market (or it would not have been merit at all). 30 tons less were exported, which was a larger size shrimp and with adequate industrial processing.

    The Majagua militants, for their part, highlighted the need for political and economic growth.

    One of the concerns of the meeting was "the decrease in militancy, and how to reverse the trend, but without losing quality in the process of new incorporations."

    This newspaper drew attention to how the main quarry of the political organization, the Union of Young Communists, only added 30 percent of its potential, when it should be equal to or greater than half. The context also "justified" it: 41.6 percent of the militants in that territory are over 55 years old.

    In economic matters, we need that "the cadres have more entrepreneurship, initiative, make the most of the measures approved by the country's leadership, risk more, having as limits the principles of the Revolution." That was one of the calls.

    At the beginning of the year, on January 16, we published that, in Morón, the transformations had to be seen. So we began the coverage like this: “The path that goes from theory to practice has not been shortened in Morón and, even when the debates of the Municipal Assembly of the Party opted for the transformation of reality, the indicators that are handled in the municipality show that the distance between "the saying and the fact" has not been covered in all cases".

    That is why the title of the note... and the debate of its militancy committed to being noticed and holding a deep, real debate.

    One of the delegates supported it with an example: “there is no clarity in the new measures; they continue to act in the old way. Utility is paid without productive support and then there is more salary, but not more cookies or more bread. The control of the budget is avoided and we deliver, for example, a house, and then they sell it and that money is not returned. That is why the analysis cannot be based solely on whether or not the sales are fulfilled; the resources that the State puts in the entities must be protected.”

    However, this was not an absolute situation. The emblematic Turiguanó Genetic Company sought alternatives to be able to meet its sales in the face of the fall in Tourism during 2021 and achieved profits of 24 million pesos.

    The assembly process closed the debates at the municipal level in the main municipality. In Ciego de Ávila, a commitment was made to transform reality for the benefit of the people.

    Likewise, they agreed on “the need for communication made from Internet social networks to be built from a vision that is more coherent with reality; because, sometimes, and with the aim of highlighting the positive of something, we generate a bigger problem if we do not weigh the sharp edges of its context”.

    They also insisted on the need to influence more in the solution of the people's dissatisfactions, such as "the collection of solid waste, the state of deterioration and lack of hygiene of the cemetery, the improvement of the water supply and sanitation networks, the completion of the basic list of medicines, delivery of homes to victims and vulnerable people, as well as the excessive increase in prices of products and services.

    In the debate, projects such as Media Luna were also highlighted, which "speak of the appropriateness of promoting them further in order to substitute imports, generate jobs and benefits for the communities."
