Govt to let Cubans travel freely
What I enjoyed about this article from the AP was the intrinsic blame ascribed to the US for the abuse that Cuba afflicts on its citizens. Citizens wish to leave Cuba—but that’s the fault of the “interventionist and subversive plans” and the “theft” of “the powerful,” and “the revolutionary State” must “defend itself” against those powerful subversives—and thus prevent its citizens from leaving.
Reminds me of our current national leadership in The Episcopal Church.
The decree still imposes limits on travel by many Cubans. People cannot obtain a passport or travel abroad without permission if they face criminal charges, if the trip affects national security or if their departure would affect efforts to keep qualified labor in the country.
Doctors, scientists, members of the military and others considered valuable parts of society currently face restrictions on travel to combat brain drain.
“The update to the migratory policy takes into account the right of the revolutionary State to defend itself from the interventionist and subversive plans of the U.S. government and its allies,” the newspaper said. “Therefore, measures will remain to preserve the human capital created by the Revolution in the face of the theft of talent applied by the powerful.”
