HAVANA TIMES — In recent days a flood of workers have fallen like ants in the Latinoamericano stadium and its surroundings; masons, painters, electricians changing poles and wires, workers repaving, and even the telecommunications company ETECSA has created a Wi-Fi zone outside the stadium.

A few weeks labor will change the image of this stadium; it is very uncommon to see so many workers in one place. On March 22, the Cuban national team and the Tampa Bay Rays will play an exhibition game and President Obama will no doubt throw out the first ball.

Here are some pictures of what’s happening in the Latino and its surrounding streets.

    There is NO fear of anything of the sort. Repeating this charge 1000X won’t make it true.

    However bad the tragedy there are still legal remedies (both civil and criminal) available to citizens in a free society. Those recourses are unavailable to Cubans who are living under a dictatorship.

    I understand that the Department of Justice is to order a criminal investigation. Also the people of the City of Flint have to-day filed suit. Stay tuned. .

    The economic problems of Cuba are due mostly to the 55 year-old U.S. embargo which, you seem to have trouble remembering, was created and carried out specifically to impoverish the entire population.
    It continues to this day so counter-revolutionary hypocrites can point to Cuba as the cause of economic failure and low-intelligence readers will think it’s true.
    Lift the embargo and see if Cuba’s system is really a failure.
    You won’t recommend it and the GOUSA will not lift the embargo because you and they are scared stiff that Cuba’s systems WILL work and provide an alternative to the neo-liberal capitalism that is crushing the Third World and thereby kill capitalism .
