La reflexión de Leonardo Padura sobre la desesperación de la sociedad cubana.

El escritor cubano Leonardo Padura asegura que frente a la crisis de su país, donde vive, trabaja y crea, para calmar a los desesperados “el método no puede ser las soluciones de fuerza y oscuridad”.

Johana Tablada: entender las protestas desde el bloqueo de Estados Unidos como cubano.

The social problems, Tablada told us, derive from the U.S. blockade of Cuba that began in the 1960s but has been deepened by former U.S. President Donald Trump’s 243 coercive measures. “The United States has criminalized Cuban public services,” she said, “including our public health system and our public education system.” These sanctions make it impossible for Cubans to visit their families in the United States. They make it impossible for remittances to be sent into Cuba, and they make it impossible for Cuba to access essential goods and services (including fuel). On top of everything else, Trump designated Cuba as a “state sponsor of terrorism,” a decision which U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy called“frivolous.” The U.S. government claims that the blockade and these coercive measures are to punish the government, but—says Tablada—they “criminalize the country.”
