The article states "When Cuba entered the Soviet camp Soviet advisers
forced the government to arrest and imprison the Cuban Trotskyists,
and in jail they created branches to support Castro and the Cuban
Revolution. This history demonstrates that Trotskyism is the genuine
tradition of working class struggle that the Cuban Communist Party of
Julio Antonio Mella was set up to defend, and did defend before the
influence of Stalinism ruined the CP."

So since the influence of Stalinism ruined the Cuban Communist Party
would not the very same influence likewise affect the Castro regime?
Or are you implying the Fidel was a follower of Leon Trotsky?  And
this is inspite of the fact, as the article points out, that Cuban
Trotskyists were suppressed by Castro?  What did Che say about this
