BERNIE Dwyer, the Irish journalist who worked at Radio Habana Cuba for many years, died in Ireland on July 10. She was the director of a number of documentaries, including Mission against Terror and The Day Diplomacy Died. Bernie interviewed dozens of international figures, among them Noam Chomsky.
Her profound investigative work on acts of aggression and terrorism against Cuba and in defense of the Five Cuban patriots unjustly sentenced in the United States constituted an important denunciation for the work of international solidarity.
Her smile, her words in English and Spanish, her profound articles, her participation in international events, her fertile work, even when she was very sick, will remain with all of us who had the enormous privilege of knowing her as she was: a great woman, a great compañera, a great documentary maker and revolutionary.
We send to her daughters and son, grandchildren, family members and her beloved Irish people a strong embrace from the family members of the Five, from all of her compañeros, from everyone in Cuba and in the world who had the honor of knowing, respecting and loving her.
