The End of the End of the Revolution
Castro’s Cuba is turning 50 and has been dying for years. What can Obama - or anyone else – do to help bring the island in the 21st century ?
« Revolution was supposed to mean equal opportunity for all, but it has become a word the Castro brothers own. Young Cubans don’t believe in the Castros’ version of revolution. They don’t believe in a world where the internet is forbidden and your whole world is Cuba with the rest blocked out » says Giselle Palacios.
