The opening of Cuba seems all about more tourism, legacy building for Obama and regime support. Not much in terms of political and economic freedom. There have been more then 3,000 politically motivated arrests in Cuba since Obama announced the opening of relationships with this regime. The Cuban government has thousands of political prisoners, economic control by one family and severe violations of human rights. This opening was a great opportunity to put in motion very important changes for the Cuban people. At the moment the only beneficiaries are Obama, a legacy play and the Cuban regime being propped up to continue the current model of repression and corruption. Please do not confuse this political move as having benefits for the people of Cuban. This strategy will prove that an opening without accountability will bring about the same results as the embargo. We need to stop using people for political gain. It is going to blow up in our faces at a global scale.
