Granma is the official newspaper of the Central Committee of the Cuban Communist Party.

Its name comes from the yacht Granma that carried Fidel Castro and 81 other rebels to Cuba's shores in 1956 launching the Cuban Revolution.

Editions

The newspaper is published daily and is widely read. Several weekly international editions, available in English, Spanish, French and Portuguese, are also distributed abroad. Also, news stories from Granma often are carried later in the Spanish-language sections of periodicals with a similar political base, such as People's Weekly World.

Granma regularly features:

  • Speeches by Raul Castro and other leaders of the Cuban government, including former President Fidel Castro's columns
  • Official announcements of the Cuban government
  • Popular sketches highlighting the history of Cuba's revolutionary struggle, from the 19th to the 21st century
  • Developments in Latin America and world politics
  • Steps by Cuba's workers and farmers to defend and advance the socialist revolution
  • Developments in industry, agriculture, science, the arts, and sports in Cuba today
  • TV listings for that day

The normal edition is published six days a week (not Sundays) and runs to eight pages plus occasional supplements. Recent supplements have included one marking the electricity company's purchase of vans and trucks from China, and another marking the start of the 2006 FIFA World Cup.
