Quote of the Day: Cuban Regime Hasn't Shown Slightest Sign of Real Openings

Wednesday, September 9, 2015
I greatly doubt that we are facing a genuine change towards more opening from the regime. We are facing a government that in the rest of its actions has changed nothing; it is still conducting its internal dynamics as an authentic dictatorship. It still systematically represses, with the greatest impunity, dissent in ideas and other basic human rights. It has not shown the slightest sign, in the rest of its facets, that would give us reason to believe that these measures can engage a change of mentality leading to real openings.
