Cuba: Building collapses in Havana, two persons trapped

Punt de Vista is reporting that another building has collapsed in Havana, Cuba, leaving two people trapped under the rubble, one of them a 15-year-old boy. The building was located in central Havana on Arsenal street.

Unfortunately, these types of tragic events have become all too common in Cuba as the Castro dictatorship devotes all its resources to building new hotels and resorts for foreign tourists while neglecting the buildings where common Cubans live. Many of these buildings have been dangerously expanded with makeshift materials and shoddy construction in an effort to ease the severe housing shortage in the island's capital. Furthermore, most of the buildings have not seen any major repairs or maintenance since the "triumph of the revolution" in 1959.

    So? If they're hurt, they'll get free health care, of sorts, so STFU.

    If the mainstream media stopped making such a brouhaha about every minor restoration job done in Cuba [Eusebio Leal Spengler's office recently half-restored the Monument to the Maine Statue that was falling apart and that received plenty of coverage] maybe the world would know that Havana is actually falling to pieces. But then again, its all about smokescreens and complicity on the part of the docile American Mainstream Media not telling the truth.
