As a socialist, it’s no surprise Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez is doing all he can to protect Cuba’s murderous socialist dictatorship. Nevertheless, it is no less despicable.
Pedro Sanchez Prevents Spanish Monarchs from Meeting Cuban Dissidents
According to the orders issued by the Prime Minister, Spanish monarchs will not meet those opposing the communist regime during their visit to Cuba
Havana is commemorating the 500th anniversary of its founding. Spanish monarchs will visit the island on this occasion. However, they will not participate in the events of the foundation day itself because socialist dictators Daniel Ortega of Nicaragua and Nicolas Maduro of Venezuela will attend that day. This decision was made by Pedro Sanchez, the Prime Minister of Spain, and a member of the Spanish Socialist Workers’ Party.
Sanchez was the first prime minister to visit the island after 30 years, and he approved an extension of the 300 million euro debt on investments by Spanish business owners in Cuban infrastructure.
The Spanish luxury hotel chains benefit the most from the infrastructure on the Caribbean beaches. The impoverished Cubans have no access to these, and their monthly earnings are lower than the average hourly wage in Europe.
On behalf of the Cuban dissidents, the PanAm Post spoke with Claudio Fuentes, photographer, and producer of the Cuban channel, SATS State, which exposes the abuses of the dictatorship. Fuentes was labeled as a “counter-revolutionary” by the communist regime and is therefore prohibited from leaving the island.
Commenting on the fact that the Spanish monarchs’ Cuba visit will not coincide with that of Ortega and Maduro, Fuentes said that it is Sanchez’s way of masking the cynicism. “The cynicism should not be concealed because we can all see them devoid of morality.” You cannot reject and condemn Maduro and formally meet and do business with the puppet owner in Havana.
He believes that their visits are scheduled separately to circumvent the criticism and media scandal that they cannot altogether avoid.
Fuentes said that on behalf of the Cuban dissidents, he wants to send out a message to the King of Spain that he believes the monarch has betrayed democratic values, which should ideally be prioritized over any financial or commercial interests.
He added that Spanish business owners had done the same by accepting the investment perks the Cuban regime offers them and thereby being complicit in the exploitation of the Cuban workers.
