The two islands of Cuba: Splendor for the elite, starvation for everyone else
As photographer Michael Dweck documented in his book Habana Libre, the elite members of Cuba's ruling class enjoy a life of splendor with bountiful meals, flowing champagne and cocktails, and decadent parties that can last for days.
For the rest of Cuba's people, however, poverty, misery, and starvation is all they have to look forward to.
In Cuba: Long lines, lots of wait and no food (Video)
A new video filmed inside of Cuba by the Patriotic Union of Cuba (UNPACU) shows the long lines which form throughout the island in order to “receive food”, which many times- as occurs in this video- never appears. As a result of this shortage, various women turn to the camera to protest. They are voices of hunger, desperation and discontent.
