As you may know, Cuba will now have a seat in the UN Human Rights Council:
“China, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Vietnam, Cuba and Algeria won seats Tuesday on the U.N. Human Rights Council, riling independent human rights groups who said their election undermined the rights watchdog’s credibility.
The General Assembly elected 14 new members to the 47-seat Geneva-based council, which can shine a spotlight on rights abuses by adopting resolutions — when it chooses to do so.
It also has dozens of special monitors watching problem countries and major issues ranging from executions to drone strikes.”
This is a travesty but what else do you expect from the UN? I can’t wait for Cuba to pass judgement on a member country that puts dissidents in jail or harasses citizens marching for freedom. Let’s see how Cuba votes when that issue comes before the council.
Again, this is a travesty and an insult to our intelligence.
