Now read this...

If this report is to be believed, Cuba's literacy programme 'Yes I can' has now been applied in 28 countries and has taught 6.5 million people how to read and write - more than any other literacy programme by any organisation anywhere in history. The programme has even been used in developed countries such as Australia, (see this article here) to help indegenous people.
Two questions spring to mind: Is knowing how to read and write a human right? And: Why is a country that does such a thing for the world's deprived branded a terrorist state by the United States?
