  • I suggest that Diaz-Canal is a mere place holder for the real dauphin, Alejandro Castro. As the boss of the Ministry of the Interior, Castro Jr. controls the political police who are
    the fist of the regime.

  • Food for the fortunate few. It has taken fifty five years to achieve this level of Socialismo.

    VIVA FIDEL
    VIVA RAUL
    VIVA LOS CASTROS
    QUE CONTROLA TODA Y TODOS
    How forrtunate the people of Cuba are to be protected from liberty, free speech and the standard of living associated with Capitalismo by their guardians. They can look forward to the system being maintained by Diaz-Canel, the personal selection of President Raul Castro Ruz. No need for elections, no need for free media, no need vto meet the UN definition of human rights. Socialismo provides everything for all.
