HAVANA TIMES — While the reaction to the price list for new and used car sales in Cuba is raging in the alternative online and foreign press, the local print media, which is what the 95% Internet-less population has access to, has skirted the issue completely.
Instead they are informing today on the progress of a caravan recalling Fidel Castro’s triumphant revolution 55 years ago and that the tomato harvest in some place called the Valley of Caujeri has begun.
During the last weeks it was big news that Raul Castro had decided to open the new and used car market with profits from the dealerships going to improve the highly deficient public transportation.
On Friday when the price list was made public and received across the board astonishment from those who saw it, the official Granma daily, which all the other newspapers take their cues from, is air tight.
