古巴的聲音

今天跟鐵志討論古巴,不由得想起我朋友 Jorge 在古巴的集體網誌計畫:「現在的古巴!」(AhoraCuba.com)裡面的一篇文章:「外國人 vs. 古巴人」(Foreigners vs. Cuban citizens)

For example, how can it be possible that I, as a Cuban citizen, cannot buy a car or rent a hotel room? Or that living in Cuba I cannot visit certain of our beautiful keys and beaches… or how to understand that I am harassed as I enter the lobby of a certain hotel just because I am a Cuban citizen.

Thousands of times I have wondered to myself: why? They say it is because of the embargo… I cannot be rent a room in the Hotel because of the embargo, I cannot buy the car because of the embargo, I cannot travel abroad because of the embargo, I cannot have a cellular phone because of the embargo, I cannot have Internet at home because of the embargo.

But the difference is that if you are a foreigner in Cuba, if you want a car, the embargo offers it to you, thus also the embargo offers beaches, the keys and the hotels to you. It is an implicit contradiction of the “idea of the embargo". that only is understood by some ¨illuminated civil servants¨…

直接聆聽古巴人們多元地眾聲喧嘩,有這種可能嗎?
