HAVANA TIMES – In a recent meeting of leaders of the Communist Party of Cuba, First Vice President Miguel Díaz Canel spoke about non-government media and other projects that seek to destroy the Cuban Revolution with underhanded methods from within.

Díaz Canel, considered the successor of Raul Castro in February of 2018, changed his sometimes conciliatory tone for the hard line approach of the historical leaders who accompanied Fidel Castro from the beginning of his arrival to power.

According to Diaz Canel many non-governmental groups and accredited media are seemingly unharmful, but are in fact doing counterrevolutionary work and could perfectly be closed. He said he had no fear of being accused of censorship.

Here is the filtered video (in Spanish) from the meeting of Díaz Canel with the communist leaders.

    The insiders are terrified of losing control. Only an assured hard liner would be allowed to ascend.

    There is no reason to annex a poor Spanish-speaking island of only 11 million people. We can sell billions of dollars of useless crap and let them remain independent.

    Your comment is ridiculously juvenile. Why on earth would you accuse me of being paranoid? Why are you taking my comment attacking a public figure in Cuba so personal? Are you related to Diaz-Canel? While I nearly always disagree with Castro stooges who respond to my criticisms of the Castro dictatorship, I limit myself to calling their comments “ridiculously juvenile”. I never attack the person. By the way, I have no reason to be paranoid.

    Well Michael, I think that you have read my own analysis of the potential power struggle between the political ‘Troika’ headed by Diaz-Canel and Raul Castro’s immediate family. For those outside Cuba it is an interesting discussion, for those within, it will determine their future. My preference would be for both the Troika and Raul Castro’s family to leave the scene and to allow open multi-party democratic elections – but that is a pipe dream! One of the five will become the next dictator. Incidentally, Alejandro Castro Espin’s sense of humour matches that of Diaz-Canel. Neither being a laugh a minute!

    The subject of the article is Diaz-Canel. Moses merely made an observation. But I suppose that as a communist adherent, you consider that nobody should be permitted to criticize the Castro regime or the CPP, reflecting that desire to stifle dissent and if possible as in Cuba to jail the dissenters. Were you one of the marchers to the statue of Robert E. Lee in Charlottesville along with the National Socialists?
