Starving Cubans angered by lavish meals served at dictatorship’s fake ‘San Remo’ festival

Socialism in action! Equity and equality, socialist style. The oligarchs and the jerks who attend their festivals get to enjoy all sorts of great food and drink while 99 percent of the population has to live on meager rations that can only be obtained by standing in line for hours.

Never mind the fact that this “San Remo” festival is totally bogus (it has nothing to do with the Italian festival after which it is named). And never mind the fact that this is an occasion for Castro, Inc. to make money and pretend that it cares about art and culture. The artists who have chosen to take part in it and those privileged few Cubans who get to join them for lunch and dinner don’t care. Everyone at the banquets is enjoying the benefits of their privilege.

And never mind the fact that this privilege involves eating crappy-looking food that could only be considered “sumptuous” or luxurious in a hell-hole like Castrogonia.

The angry reactions of users to the luxury that contrasts with the food shortages that Cubans face on a day-to-day basis have not been long in coming.

“And we are starving because of those miserable people who have ruined my country, your country, that of all Cubans. Miserables”, commented the writer Rafael Vilches in the publication.
