Naomi Karavani reports on the elections and what they mean for the global left. Castro’s husband had ruled as a centrist democrat. He was removed from power in 2009 over small reforms that offended the powerful. After a decade of corrupt leadership from the business community Castro won power as a democratic socialist and the imperialists are mad about it.
