HAVANA TIMES — Berta Soler, the head of Cuba’s Ladies in White organization, declared that “every negotiation process requires concessions from both parts. However, the United States has given everything while Cuba has offered nothing (…) They haven’t set down any conditions and we’re already seeing the results of this. No dissident was invited to the embassy reopening ceremony.”

“Following a decision stemming from pressures applied on Washington by the Cuban government, Cuba invited over 500 people to the official reopening of the US embassy in Havana. Everyone is entitled to invite who they please to their own home, which is why it’s a little disquieting this isn’t the case in the home of the United States in Havana. It is yet another demonstration of the pressure Cuba is applying on the US to keep us out of the loop. They’re only going to invite some civil society representatives to a more private function at the residence of the US ambassador in Cuba,” said Soler.

  • Except in the USA where an African American life is not worth very much anywhere; another Black kid got shot 6 times last week for “trying to escape false arrest by White cops while Black”, there wasn’t even a chase. What a contrast, one Cuban “dissident” with a small but bloody face laceration and a 17-year old Black kid shot at 10 times and hit 6 times by cops investigating a call of a disturbance and “possible gun” which was never “found” until 2 days later somewhere in the opposite direction of where these children where coming from. There is just no comparison, Cuba has a much better civil and minority rights record than you do in the USA by a country mile!

    I cut my teeth in the Civil Rights Movement of the USA, tried to contribute positively to that country before I realized what a waste of time it is; maybe Charlie Manson was right after all and there is going to be a Race War in the USA.

  • To certain degree, I stand corrected.

  • Plenty of Cuban dissidents have shed blood, Moses. Did you not see the photographs of Antonio Rodilas a few weeks ago?
