    The regime’s impudence

    The regime’s impudence
    DDC | Madrid | 18 de Enero de 2017 – 09:42 CET.

    A regime like Cuba’s – which has never tired of discriminating between
    nationals and foreigners, treating its own people like second-class
    citizens, and imposing nationality-based policies of apartheid – now
    considers it a victory to have undone the only preferential treatment
    Cubans enjoyed in the US.

    In its declaration, the regime endorses regional stability on a
    continent on which it has been meddling politically and militarily since
    1959. Directly responsible for the destabilization and chaos
    wracking Venezuela, it claims to be concerned about the use of violence
    with a “disruptive extraterritorial impact” arising from Cuban
    emigration to the USA. This doubletalk is nothing new: in the Colombian
    peace process, it purports to function as a guarantor of the solution to
    an uprising that it actually supported for decades.

    Raúl Castro seeks to distract attention from violations of Cubans’
    rights by adopting a role as an international mediator. In that same
    role, he negotiated the “dry foot/wet foot” policy as if he were a
    Latin-Americanist and not the ultimate representative of power in Cuba.
    Posing as a geopolitical player, he seeks to draw eyes away from Cuba’s
    pressing internal problems.

    His regime managed for the US to lift its policy of preferential
    treatment for Cubans, under the pretext of egalitarianism. As always, he
    did not attempt to create new opportunities, but to undermine those
    opportunities that have been achieved. It was with that same logic that
    it fought Cuban proprietors and industrialists during the 60s, and which
    with it suppresses private entrepreneurs now.

    Under the guise of supporting non-violence and non-interference in other
    countries, it returns to its bread and butter: repressing Cubans.
    Capable of sinking boats carrying emigrants and children, as in the case
    of the tugboat 13 de marzo, and of, in 1980, fomenting the repudiation
    of people who only wanted to emigrate, it now claims that it is worried
    about the horrors of human trafficking. Incapable of offering its
    citizens well-being, or even allowing them to reach it by their own
    means, it persecutes their attempts to find it far from the Island.

    The “Declaration of the Revolutionary Government” masks, under a layer
    of false humanism, the regime’s habitual scorn for the individual.
