Diaz Canel and the Housing Deficit in Cuba

By Carlos

That’s perfect! Now, Mr. President, don’t move, please. Several thousand persons living for years in shelters are waiting for a home to live in and to take a picture with you.

HAVANA TIMES – Housing in Cuba has been deficient for decades. The revolution has never been able to meet the growing demand of the population.

Climatic events, thefts of building materials at construction sites or factories, and bureaucracy, have limited efforts to give some relief to the situation.

The current president Miguel Diaz Canel wants to give the image of progress in this sense; but there’s so much to be done..

  • The Castro regime has however been able to fund building lots of new houses and apartments for Alejandro Castro Espin’s MININT goons. It has been able to fund the construction of big memorials to supposed “Heroes” of the revolution. it found the funds to build the over-the-top memorial to the executioner “Che” Guevara at Santa Clara.
    The fact that even many of those Cubans who have a roof over their heads have to live in squalor is of little concern. When did the Poder Popular last discuss how to improve the living standards of the Cuban people? Can anyone remember?
    Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. The history of communism demonstrates the truth of that old saying. Diaz-Canel is reveling in his new found authority as Raul Castro’s puppet.

    • I know what you mean. Talk is cheap.
