Anddy Sierra Alvarez, 24 August 2015 –The Obama administration
apparently betrayed the deep grief of many Cubans who have suffered the
“welcoming” hospitality of the Cuban government. Everything points to
economic interests, but as of now US government officials may enter
Cuba. What will happen?
Cuba opened the doors of its prison and in the future it will bring
consequences. With the imminent Internet, there is no one that can stop
it. Social networks have the power to inform about what is hidden.
It is also true that the Cuban government benefits from this
reestablishment, its removal from the US List of Sponsors of Terrorism
attests to this. But there is still a long way to go and Cuba asks for a
lot in exchange for nothing.
The Obama administration has its strategy. The embargo, what has it
achieved? Nothing. Its effect was on the people and not on the communist
leadership. This embargo (blockade, according to the Cuban government)
only enriched the communist propaganda: “Everything the people of Cuba
are suffering is thanks to the existence of the blockade.” This
discourse of the Castros, aren’t they obligated to change it? Difficult,
no, because in order for the US embargo to see modifications, Americans
need to see significant changes in the controversial issue in respect to
human rights in Cuba. An endless topic.
American companies want to invest in Cuba
This is another benefit, but it will have its clashes. How will these
companies handle the recruitment of Cuban personnel? By CUBALSE? (Cuba
At the Service of the Foreigner). And the salaries; Will the American
dollar devalue in the Port of Mariel in order to avoid the worsening of
social classes on the island?
Every day the information circulates in Cuba with an immediate power,
something that has not happened in the past. They do not believe that
this can increase the discontent of the Cubans and begin to analyze all
the events that occur which they see with their eyes closed.
The Castros Lose Strength
The Cuban Revolution loses strength, the Committees for the Defense of
the Revolution (CDR) don’t work. And in the high places of government of
the grand caiman differences exist. What do they tell me about the hot
year 2018? What will Raul Castro do? Quite a dilemma, who will lead us?
Perhaps, Miguel Diaz-Canel Bermudez, it is not known? Maybe Lazo?
In any event, Cuba’s future is very uncertain. Not even the Cuban
government knows what to expect.
