Photo of the day – Cuba’s ‘nouveau riche, mercernaries of totalitarianism’

In a classic case of do as I say, not as I do, Cuban dissident Martha Beatriz Roque snapped this revealing photograph of Roberto Verrier, the president of the Castro regime's National Association of Cuban Economists having lunch and plenty of beers at a restaurant that only accepts foreign currency. As an elite member of the Cuban dictatorship, Verrier promotes the apartheid system of dual currencies on the island, where the elite members of Castro society are allowed to earn and spend foreign currency while typical Cubans are paid in a worthless secondary currency.

As Martha calls them, these elitist Castro officials are Cuba's "nouveau riche, mercenaries of totalitarianism."
