(en) LETTER FROM A CUBAN ANARCHIST AFTER THE PROTESTS (ca, de, it, fr, pt)[machine translation]

Date Wed, 21 Jul 2021 09:26:53 +0300

There is a great deal of turmoil that cannot be put into a left-right pattern. It is a people who are discovering their capacity not to be a mere mass of support for a retrograde and cynical oligarchy which uses the words "revolution" and "anti-imperialism" to legitimize an ordinary despotism which is little different from n any tyranny. It is a people tired of inequalities and "revolutionary" and "socialist" privileges. Cuba, besides being a museum of the global left, is a society with a state, a police force, repressors, privileged and marginalized and a bureaucratic military oligarchy as rapacious as the others. The fact that we have had an enlightened and humanistic despot does not exempt him, nor his lasting heirs, from their despotism. A significant portion of this people said they had had enough. The lifting of the American blockade must take place, just like the end of the monopoly of the Castro oligarchy. It will be complicated and surely "impossible", but it is the most honest prospect that I see. Our companion

Leonardo Romero is currently missing, he is an enemy of the Cuban state for having publicly written on a sign "Socialism yes, repression no!" ". It is in this disappearance that the true face of this government can be found.
