Un irritado Fidel Castro amenazó el domingo con protestas masivas y un
boicot a las próximas conversaciones sobre migración entre Cuba y Estados
Unidos a menos que Washington acuerde devolver al balsero de 5 años Elián
González dentro de 72 horas.

"Si son algo inteligentes, anunciarán el regreso del niño antes de las 72
horas", dijo el presidente cubano en un discurso televisado temprano en el
día. "Ya es difícil contener a nuestra gente".

"Espero que los numeroso amigos de Cuba en Estados Unidos y otras partes
comenzarán a organizar comités para poner en libertad al niño secuestrado
por Estados Unidos. Se moverán cielo y tierra".

An angry Fidel Castro on Sunday threatened mass protests and a boycott of
upcoming U.S.-Cuba migration talks unless Washington agrees to return child
rafter Elian Gonzalez within 72 hours.
''If they are halfway intelligent, they will announce the return of this
child before 72 hours, the Cuban president said in a speech broadcast early
in the day. ''It's already difficult to restrain our people.

''I hope that Cuba's numerous friends in the United States and in other
parts will begin to organize committees for the release of the child
kidnapped by the United States. Heaven and earth will be moved.

Castro said he was infuriated by the way his enemies in Miami had embraced
the custody case as their own, and criticized television images of the child
surrounded by toys and wearing a T-shirt of his nemesis, the Cuban American
National Foundation.

He promised a ''battle for world opinion'' to bring Elian home. The child
turns 6 today.

I've checked with various online editions of newspapers. Most base their
accounts on an Associated Press report that gravely distorts Castro's
message, making it seem as if it were some sort of terroristic ultimatum,
and leaves out Fidel's appeal for international solidarity.
