Alpha 66 is a Cuban political group who did carry guerrilla
expeditions not againts Cuba but against the communist regime.
None of his members consider himself anti-Cuban, actually they
consider themselves very good Cubans by opposing a dictatoship.
Juan Martin, 1 April 2002
The emblem of the movement was designen by Cuban artist José
María Mijares. This armed movement has offices in Florida,
California, New York and New Jersey.

I have some information on an opposition Cuban group settled
in the United States that calls itself "Comandos F-4".
The source is an article in Spanish on the "Miami
Times" that appeared in 2003 witha story on the group. On
the newspaper artcile as well as on the internet, the name of
Rodolfo Frometa appears as the frontman of this group.
E. R., 7 April 2004
The flag is green-red-black-green. The hoist triangle is blue.
Information on this group as translated from <www.comandosf4.org>:
"The F4 commandos are a group of men, women and children who dream and fight for the freedom of Cuba.
F4 commandos are worthy, combative, fragile, painful and self-sacrificing, a weapon always aimed toward the horizon, seeking the perfect target to liberate Cuba from all the fears, all the pain, all the betrayals of the tyrant that humiliates it, opresses it, jails it and murders it. The F4 commandos are a dream full of love for their motherland, and a great sacrifice for all those that have joined it and have dedicated their souls to its great cause: to see their people free again of their chains.
In genetics, "F4" means the union of two components to make of them something better, in this case the best of those in exile, united for the best of the Cuban people."

In a breeding scheme, F4 means the fourth generation (I guess
that F stands for fertilization) of descendants after the initial
crossing between two parents P, which gave the F1 generation.
Using individuals from the F1 as parents gives F2 etc. Whether
the result of the cross is better than the mean of the parents
(heterosis effect) depends on the selected character and on its

I just stumbled on <www.autentico.org>
. It is the site of the 'Organización Auténtica' - I don't know
whether it is Cuban or not.
Jarig Bakker , 22 December 1999
It is listed by Smith (1975) [smi75c]
as a Cuban party. I guess it is a satellite of the Cuban
communist party or one of the pseudo-non-communist parties, if

In regards to the Partido Auténtico, it was a political party
prior to 1959 when Castro took power. It was the rival of the
Partido Ortodoxo with which Castro sympathized.
Carlos M. Ramos , 7 Febuary 2000
The Autentico Party was a populist, almost social democrat
party created in the 1930's. They had two elected pressidents
(Grau 1944-48. and Prio 1948-52, the second was ousted by a
pustch). While much can be said about his leadership (or lack of)
the Autentico gobernments respected free enterpise, free press,
didn't try to control unions, allowed the existence of political
parties (including the comunist one, called at the time PSP
Partido Socialista Popular).

Does anyone know anything about that unusual flag that the
demonstrators surrounding Elian Gonzalez' home in Miami, Florida
have been using?
Description of the flag:
Just like the Cuban national flag but with the addition of crossed olive(?) branches underneath the star near the hoist.
Ben , 8 April 2000
I was told that the Crossed olive branches are added when
confronting tyrants. That it is ordered in the Cuban
constitution of 1940.
