While most ambassadors to New Zealand spend their thime addressing Rotary and the NZ Institute of International Affairs, Castro’s local representative mingles with the Marxists.
Last week comrade Robaina was up in Auckland at Matt McCarten’s UNITE HQ meeting the Auckland far left.

MORNING TEA TO WELCOME CUBAN AMBASSADOR: José Luis Robaina Garcia is the Ambassador of the Republic of Cuba. Mr Garcia’s last posting was as Minister Counsellor in the Cuban Embassy in the People’s Republic of China. From 2004 until now Mr Garcia was the Director of the Centre of Asia and Oceania Studies within the Department of International relations of the Central Committee of the Cuban Communist Party. He will be Cuba’s first Ambassador resident in New Zealand. CUBAN COFFEE, TEA, CAKES
UNITE has already admitted seeking money from Venezuela. Will they seek a little Cuban “aid” as well?
I’ll repeat an earlier question.
Why has such a prominent servant of Fidel Castro been assigned to a strategic backwater like New Zealand?
