I call your attention to an interesting item:
At the recent CATO Conference featuring Cuban dissidents Yoani Sanchez and Orlando Luis Pardo Lazo, when the latter starts explaining the Castro-regime’s “fraud reform” and how sad it will be if this “fraud reform could facilitate the flow of foreign capital into Cuba”–he’s suddenly interrupted by a moderator-translator?
(go to 27.20 on speech)
Despite the damaging effects it would obviously have on his delivery, Orlando Luis Pardo Lazo chose to speak in his (surprisingly good, but obviously heavily-accented) English rather than let his speech and answers be filtered through a moderator…(who perhaps had an agenda???)
I don’t know Mr Orlando Luis Pardo Lazo, and it’s entirely likely that–if he’s even heard of us– he regards us all as insufferable intransigents, beyond the pale–but so what? He’s an edgy and ultra-sharp dude. He’s remained immune to most of Castroite “education” (indoctrination) and he had an important message…wish he could have expounded on it further…
