Quote of the day – Cuba’s future must not include the Castros

In an interview with out friend Joan Antoni Guerrero at Punto Cuba, Cuban dissident punk rocker Gorki Aguila explains how a free and democratic future in Cuba can only be realized once the Castro family is completely removed (translation by Capitol Hill Cubans):

“I think everything that guy [Raul Castro] does is cosmetic so that he can keep governing.  That’s the strategy.  We’re not going to allow someone who has destroyed the country to have more opportunities.  The future of Cuba should be tied to the absence of the Castro family from power.  I want changes with people who can propose new things.  We might make mistakes, but we need to be able to make mistakes on our own, not this tyrant who has proven to be ineffective, and who has destroyed the country and entire generations.”
