Travel to Cuba: Marti's view

Jump to last reply

Jose Marti said that to visit the home of the oppressor is to sanction oppression. For 38 years one man has ruled an island nation with a steel fist.

Over 20%25 of the Cuban population has fled. Thousands and thousands more have been executed. Human rights are systematically denied.

If a Cuban citizen bad mouths a tourist he's looking at prison or worse. Ditto for the beggar. It is a crine to be homeless in Cuba. For moe inormation visit http://www.fiu.edu/~fcf/
