About Ron Ridenour
Short stories



Born in the US Military Empire (the Devil's Country), 1939, I rejected the American Dream following a four year-stint in the US Air Force. My first demonstration was against the US invasion of Cuba, April 1961. Since then I have acted as an anti-war, civil rights, solidarity, and radical activist (Long Hot Summer, 1964, in Mississippi; Wounded Knee American Indian Movement 1973; anti-Vietnam war organizer; solidarity with Cuba, Sandinistas, Chavistas, Indigenous President Evo Morales).
I have lived in many countries and worked as a journalist-editor-author-translator for four decades, including for Cuba’s Editorial José Martí and Prensa Latina (1988-96).;
