Cuba in crisis: The people have the word

The relaxation of the rules for importing food recently announced by the Cuban dictatorship, the electricity restrictions in Havana and the new working conditions in state centers show the lack of options to face the collapse of the economy while citizen protests proliferate and there is no new messiahs or lenders, the external debt accumulates and foreign businessmen established on the Island have their money withheld.

The headline of the story about the start of the blackouts as a “gesture of solidarity from Havana to Cuba” was the biggest political mistake in the “continuity” period. The capital had been benefited fundamentally so as not to anger its two million inhabitants and remain as a showcase for the exterior.

The inflamed displays of disgust throughout the archipelago caused the statement to be changed to another: “act with greater responsibility to contribute to the country’s efforts.” The four-hour blackout every three days imposed on residents of the capital was outrageous, while other Cubans were imposed 10-12 hours a day of power cuts.

In the last month, protests have proliferated, such as the one that happened in the Altamira neighborhood, in Santiago de Cuba, where Governor Beatriz Johnson attended a dialogue to calm the protesters. Human rights activists and independent journalists had been repressed before and after July 11, 2022 so that the first anniversary of 11J would not be commemorated, but the leaders of the Communist Party have provoked consequences that they cannot blame on the opposition or Miami.

The relaxation of the rules for non-commercial imports of natural persons was published as part of the 75 measures announced “to advance the economy” by Vice President Alejandro Gil, at the meeting of the National Assembly on July 21. These are the new tariff rates for those who receive non-commercial air, sea, postal and courier shipments, as well as non-commercial imports carried out by natural persons. In addition to the changes in weight and payment, the items and quantities of household items, household appliances, computer equipment, cell phones, musical instruments, furniture, motor vehicles and parts and pieces, mopeds, bicycles, electric skateboards or similar and others were expanded. .

The normalization of electricity generation will take indefinitely. The useful life of thermoelectric plants is 30-35 years of exploitation, while the Cuban ones have 30-40 years and capital maintenance has been postponed for more than 10 years. This means that when the hotels that will not be occupied due to the fall in tourism were built, investments were not made in this important branch with an impact on the entire economy, nor were they made in the obsolete industries of vital productions or complementary to other branches.

The Castro’s puppet, Miguel Díaz-Canel, explained that types of businesses had been found that would guarantee technology for electricity generation in a short time, and there were other negotiations for investments, such as renewable energy sources, but “there are no immediate solutions.” , as reported by the state newspaper Granma on July 23.

The hundreds of measures to encourage agricultural production and state enterprises, in order to supply the domestic market, substitute imports and export, have failed like everything else in communism. The sale of slave doctors and tourism are at a minimum with no hope of a boom in the short term.

The absolute political, economic and social crisis that Cuba is suffering imposes an opening and places the people as the only protagonist. It is in the hands of ordinary Cubans to take to the streets and initiate the collapse of communism.
