Castroism admits not having a short-term solution for blackouts in Cuba

In Cuba the blackouts continue and the dictatorship is not responsible. The Castro regime continues to blame the shortcomings on the sanctions imposed by the United States, on the high demand of Cubans in hot weather and, given the latest world events, now adds high fuel prices as an excuse. But there is no mention of the lack of investment in the country’s electricity system for decades, still dependent on the burning of oil derivatives.

In recent days, the Ministry of Energy and Mines admitted that there will not be enough capacity to meet the island’s electricity demand. Added to these aggravating circumstances is an alleged fire “of great proportions” that occurred on July 8 at a thermoelectric plant located in the province of Holguín. Repairing it will take more than a year. So, in the words of Minister Liván Arronte Cruz, the solution to the energy crisis has no immediate solution and will be “costly.”

“The operating reserves that we have in the electricity system are insufficient to cover the demand, so the effects on the service are inevitable,” he said in a televised broadcast.

Such is the seriousness of the blackouts that the official account of the agency publishes the available electrical power on a daily basis. The numbers simply do not cover the energy needs of the island, while the regime continues to talk about getting ahead by entrenching a communism that only causes misery.

Dark days


Parallel to the statements of Castroism regarding fires, high demand and high fuel prices, complaints continue about the inhuman conditions that Cubans go through due to the impossibility of cooking, communicating and in general, of living as a result of the blackouts. In this sense, the Cubanos Por el Mundo  portal broadcast videos of children sleeping on the doors of their houses due to the heat, while the father uses a piece of cardboard as a fan.

Not even the shipment of some 700,000 barrels of fuel oil from Russia is enough to help reduce the blackouts in Cuba, which days ago provoked several protests later repressed by the regime in its fear that the wave of claims that shook power would be repeated. by Miguel Díaz-Canel in July 2021.

Repression and omission is what characterizes the dictatorship in the face of this type of eventuality, because although the blackouts in Cuba were frequent, they have been getting worse. For this reason, to mitigate the criticism, the national union of Energy and Mine Workers awarded a recognition to the personnel of the Cienfuegos Electric Company, one of those that make up the National Electroenergetic System (SEN).

It is a whole propaganda apparatus to hide the inefficiency of Castroism, today led by Díaz-Canel.

While Cuban citizens suffer from the negligence and abandonment of Castroism, little has transpired in continuously sabotaged social networks, since the internet service is controlled by the State. A search reveals videos broadcast in mid-July due to protests in different locations. On the other hand, there are the images of children sleeping in the entrances of their houses. But beyond that, there is not much graphic content available.

A CNN report from Havana mentions people waiting up to eight days in lines to fill their vehicles with gasoline, since diesel is also in short supply. This leads to the disappearance of public transport. “If you leave, someone else takes your job and you have to go back to the beginning and start over,” said one interviewee.
