HAVANA TIMES – The situation of nearly two thousand Cubans who are stranded in Costa Rican territory is not news to virtually anyone.
The images of young children, pregnant women and not so young people fleeing the abuse of the Nicaraguan police have been around the world.

Those rejected by the government of Daniel Ortega are not criminals. They include engineers, teachers, doctors, housewives, carpenters, dancers and students… they are ordinary people with the same dreams and the same hope for a better life in the United States.
It’s not worth talking about whose to blame, but if I did, I would have put my name first on the list, also yours, the person next door and many more, for observing the events in silence.
