Cuba restricted access of the prisons to the international human rights monitors and the International Committee of the Red Cross. The justice system is heavily overworked and this caused it to try and finish up cases as quickly as possible. This causes many innocent people to be behind bars and makes it easier for people to be framed for crimes for crimes they didn't commit. This is important to Cuba because it tarnishes its image in the international perspective. Also, Cuba wants to become more humanitarian and ending prison torture is a good place to
In the late 1800’s, Cuba was fighting for its independence and striving to break free from Spain’s control. On February 28, 1898, the U.S.S Maine mysteriously exploded, which was stationed on the coast of Cuba. This led to the U.S involvement in the Spanish-American War. There were many economic reasons why the U.S joined this war, however, there was nothing significant that would require their involvement. The U.S was already keeping a close eye on the battle between the other two nations; waiting for a reason to intervene.
We should not feel unsafe and suppressed in our homeland. We cannot continue to remained trapped on this island. We did not give up democracy during the Cuban Revolution to be oppressed by a communist government for half of a century (The Cuban Libre Story). Let the following evidence depict our grievances.
Lower class Cubans were treated as criminals, even though only 1% were actual criminals, and were left with barely any economical opportunities. The flow of Cubans into the U.S continued and still continues today but the U.S has set new policies to deal with the immigrants. I was shocked to learn about the challenges that Cubans had to deal with while trying escape their bad situations. I was stunned that the U.S could be so biased towards people. They welcomed Cubans but when the lower class started to arrive and the more people sought refugee, the more the U.S started to reject them.
Life on the plantations was not only exhausting, but a slave’s life was often cut short due to the rigorous demands of crop and factory production. Slavery was finally abolished on the island in 1886, but had already left its indelible mark on Cuban society. This essay will cover the different facets regarding slavery in Cuban society and its effects on modern day Cuba.
The United States has had an ongoing embargo with Cuba. An embargo is when there is a ban against a trade from a particular country. The United States has imposed it upon Cuba. This happened on October 19th, 1960, signed by John F. Kennedy. The US placed an embargo on Cuba except for food and medicine.
Therein lies the irony of solidarity mixed with ideas of superiority, a principle that De La Fuente should have emphasized rather than glazing over as it is crucial to examining revolutionary Cuba. In the other portion of the chapter, De La Fuente continues with Batista’s Cuba, but in a different light.
In Cuba, the tobacco farmers are required to give 90% of their crop to the government and they can keep the other 10%. Obviously, if there was more ability for them to trade with the United States their economy would flourish but they would still be hindered in the sense that their goods are not their own. In addition, who is to say that a boost in the economy wouldn’t make the government decide to take 95% of their
Another reason why America was aggressive is because for example, when there was a meeting on what action the US should take against Cuba and USSR, three out of the four proposals were ones that could probably cause another war. One of the proposals was to destroy the Soviet missiles in Cuba by an airstrike, which is a very intense act. Furthermore, another reason why I agree with Cuba’s point of view, is because America was unfair with its ‘regulations’ with Cuba. Castro was not allowed to keep Soviet missiles in his land, because Kennedy stated that it was a threat to the security of the US. While on the other hand, the US had all the nuclear power to fire at Cuba at any time without any conditions.
This was a very big decision that Kennedy made because Cuba and the U.S traded a lot of goods between the each other, and he knew that he would be cutting off that supply completely. A lot of people did not believe he was making the right decision, but Kennedy knew that if his judgement and thinking was corrupted by other people 's perspective than he wouldn’t be able to truly figure out what was the right
He apologize later when I ask him to have a spanish conversation with me and he wasn’t able not even to said a sentence. Cuba a country ruled for years by the regime f castro. They hope that with the renewal treaty of the U.S. and Cuba they may be compessated for all those years living under Castro’s government. They hope to get back their properties, and be able to live in peace. Cubans may not stop dreaming about a day they can be free from all the oppresion of its governor.
For one, even though Cuba had intense difficulties in the past, it 's been able to provide for itself and sustain its own economy. However as for Puerto Rico, it 's recently had a large decline in its economy. Due to the decline, it 's had to rely on the United States in federal aid, and as a consequence Puerto Rico 's “unemployment rate swelled to about 16% compared to that of Cuba, which stands at only 2.4%”. In fact, these unemployment rates have again changed the view of the islands. Puerto Rico is now viewed as an island that 's close to falling apart.
