Another human rights group in Cuba that lives under the jackboot of Castro tyranny who is not aware that the U.S.-based Council of the Americas knows better than they do what is good for them and their country.
There seems to be confusion. It’s illusory and unreal to think the so-called ‘cuenta-propistas’ (‘self-employed’ licensees) form part of a ‘broad spectrum of civil society.’ The laws enacted in our country do not recognize rights, nor economic freedoms, that guarantee the free exercise of a market economy. In Cuba, the totalitarian regime has made some concessions within an environment and legal order that is under the absolute control of the government. To support and applaud this logic of no-rights is an act of complicity that infringes, precisely, against the potential birth of a real ‘civil society.’
