The streets are Cuba’s last chance to rid itself of the Castros

Joan Antoni Guerrero Vall in Punt de Vista (my translation):

The streets are Cuba's last chance to rid itself of the Castros
I believe the struggle for democracy in Cuba moved backwards yesterday. From the moment Sebastian Piñera turns over the CELAC presidency to dictator Raul Castro, that struggle will take 54 years or steps backwards. The images from the event in Chile where the dictator was awarded, as it is done in parliaments, the reports where they talk about CELAC as an instrument that searches for, among other things, the preservation of democracy, have all turned out to be in reality a very bad joke. For Cuba, for Cubans, all they have left are the streets, a popular uprising, to stand up against and expel the Castro regime from power. Only the streets, the streets, and the streets.
