Boycotting Cubans

There are some Cuban parlamentarians visiting Edinburgh. Citing hypocrisy, one of the councillors called for a boycott of the civic reception for these parlamentarians.

“It is an affront to democracy to entertain people from a regime that Amnesty describes as not tolerating opposition parties. The Cuban regime currently holds prisoners of conscience for their political opinions.”

In particular when the city council has previously condemmed regimes in Burma and Zimbawe.
