Who is the Guilty Party?

Those traveling to Cuba should consider the news. In the middle of May the newspaper Granma, official publication of the Communist Party, began a series of articles about the worsening of the economic situation in the country caused by the international financial crisis. Two articles signed by the director, Lázaro Barredo, and another article in the first page of the newspaper reported the excessive consumption of 40,000 tons of fuels for the production of electrical energy. >>

Raíces de Esperanza’s guide to meaningful contact with Cuba




Generation ñ, Generation Y, Generacción RDE – call us what you want. But we Cubans, non-Cubans, Cuban Americans, students, and young professionals that make up the Raíces de Esperanza network, are a generation on the move. We are a generation nurturing, discovering, and/or reawakening our roots within and passion for Cuba. We may not agree on all things (ask two Cubans the same question and you’ll get 5 opinions), but we all share a fundamental belief that young people on and off the island should be the authors of their own futures; that together they can help promote a pluralistic and democratic Cuban society; that one day Cubans on the island, in the United States, and everywhere else on this earth (and we are everywhere) can unite and reconcile as one Cuban nation. It’s true. Harsh realities make such lofty ideals seem far off, impractical, and overly idealistic.

Yet change never comes easy; it’s the result of the accumulated and progressive effects of many varied and even countervailing actions. We can all do our part. How?
Simple: by reaching out to that island and exchanging stories, ideas, and know-how with its citizens – whether indirectly or directly, in person or over the phone, on or off-line. Cubans and Cuban Americans can benefit not only by learning something new, but also by challenging and exploring their own preconceived notions of what life is like inside or outside of Cuba.


1. Knowledge. Reaching out helps Cubans on the island gain exposure to information,
culture, resources, ways of life, and experiences from which they might have been isolated.

2. Perspective. Equally – if not more – important, reaching out helps us better understand and see Cuba’s realities with our own eyes – realities that are ever-shifting and always more complex than you might think. For those of us who were not born in Cuba, it is especially vital that we not only absorb the collective memories and experiences of our friends and families, but also discover and learn about the Cuba of today – politically, culturally, socially, and economically – for ourselves.

3. Activism and Education. Reaching out can help us shine a spotlight on human rights
concerns and identify sources of repression. It can also educate us to appreciate
Cubans’ often unique and varied hopes for their future – as well as how their ideas
compare to our own. Reaching out can help us understand the ways many Cubans in
the arts, academics, and even politics push boundaries in their own rights, forging
spaces for critical expression. Reaching out can help us better grasp a multi-textured
Cuban society that defies black-and-white narratives.

4. Dialogue. Reaching out can help us think critically and exchange opinions about “taboo”
issues - whether the role of the United States, other members of the international
community, and the Cuban Diaspora in Cuba’s future, or the legacies of the revolution
and its aftermath. Breaking down barriers through people-to-people exchanges is a must if reconciliation is ever to be a reality.

5. Family Ties. Reaching out to Cuba allows many of us to sustain, rediscover, or build
family ties – links that can overcome divisions of politics, economics, and time to form
the bedrock of the future reconciliation of the Cuban nation.

6. Community-Building. Reaching out also allows us to form friendships and continue
building a transnational community that moves beyond ideological divisions to find points of cultural and human connection.
