These dissidents are ENTIRELY Supported by the 'USAID' Division, of the American CIA.
Remember what the definition of a 'dissident', is?
If you don't, a dictionary will enlighten you.

The CIA and its Nefarious Divisions, have been supporting,(and financing) Dissidents, Insurgents, and their compatriots,(like Alan Gross, for instance), FOR OVER 50 YEARS, along with the US EMBARGO of Cuba.

They have also sponsored Assassins,(Jackals), to try and pop Fidel Castro, OVER 600-plus times, during the EMBARGO period.

Anything that you read, under the banner of,'The Babalu Blog', should be taken with a grain,(or maybe two), of salt, regarding ANYTHING IT SAYS, about CUBA!

They seem to be just a bunch of moaning, whining, Batista-Loving, Miami-Cubans, who got kicked out of Cuba, by Fidel.

They are just jealous of the Castro Boys' success, at keeping the US.,(and them), out of Cuba.

Kudos to the author. A well balanced article
""What is the government afraid of? That a few hundred people talking, listening to music and perhaps yelling anti-government slogans are capable of mobilizing thousands or perhaps hundreds of thousands of people, who will support them and overthrow the government in a massive, popular uprising? If that were the case, it would be a tacit acknowledgement of their political defeat."

Considering the rise in repression under Raul Castro's rule, it's clear that the regime isn't just afraid of these peaceful dissidents -- it is very afraid."

You really think so, Multi-Names?

I think the Cuban people are getting very excited, regarding the changes that have been forthcoming, and are also in the pipe, ready to be brought forth.

You can see it, and hear the talk, on the streets of Cuba.

It's too bad you couldn't go to Cuba to see and hear the excitement, instead of reading some downer, made-up story, in the Babalu Blog, Multi-Names.

I actually feel sorry for you, and your Batista-loving, Miami-Cuban, Anti-Castro friends.

It must be very upsetting to you people to see Cuba advancing so visibly, and not be able to be a part of it.(Except for financing the Dissidents, Insurgents, Jackals, etc., that are trying to overthrow the government, in order to bring in a US-Leaning President, through your 'Regime-Change, activities)!

IT is so blatantly obvious, It is absolutely hilarious!

Mandela's Message Didn't Make It to Cuba
In Havana a small white clique rules a majority black nation.
By Mary Anastasia O'Grady Dec. 29, 2013
Did Barack Obama bow to Raúl Castro when the two shook hands at a memorial for Nelson Mandela in South Africa earlier this month? It sure looked that way in a South African Broadcasting Corporation photo.
On the other hand Castro is a diminutive dictator. That may explain what seemed to be presidential stooping to the level of the tropical totalitarian. Let's hope so. After all, the Cuban military dictatorship, run by a white junta, held and tortured the black political prisoner Eusebio Peñalver for 28 years—one year more than Mandela endured.
Eusebio Peñalver
The world barely noticed when Peñalver died in exile in 2005. If he had enjoyed the kind of international support Mandela had, things might have turned out differently for him and for Cuba's predominantly black population. Government statistics in Cuba are unreliable but according to a 2009 report in the Inter Press Service News Agency, "most Cuban academics estimate that between 60% and 70% of the population is black or 'mulatto.'"
Cuba was thrilled with the Obama encounter. A Dec. 19 commentary under Fidel's byline, published by the state media, congratulated Raúl for "his firmness and dignity" when the two met.
That's not the only reason Cuba had to be gioddy about what went on in South Africa. The world used the Dec. 5 passing of Mandela to recall the courageous struggle for racial equality in South Africa. Cuba used it to brag about the close ties between Mandela and Fidel. No one mentioned Peñalver or the 55 years of racial exclusion under the Castro military dictatorship.
Cuba already had a long history of racial discrimination by the late 1950s, not unlike in the U.S. But after dictator Fulgencio Batista went into exile on Jan. 1, 1959 and Castro took over, things did not improve. In many ways, they got worse.
Peñalver was born in central Cuba in 1936, the eldest of six children. He had to give up going to school full-time in order to work. But he studied bookkeeping at night and graduated from a business school in Camaguey.
Peñalver opposed the Batista regime, like many young Cubans, and he fought with the rebel army in the hope of restoring the constitutional democracy. But when Castro hijacked the revolution for himself, Peñalver broke ranks rather than "sell my soul to the same devil that here on earth is Castro and communism."
Unlike Mandela, he never planned or launched attacks against civilians. But he took up arms against Castro's military in the Escambray Mountains, where he was captured in October 1960.
Peñalver became one of the legendary "plantados," prisoners who heroically resisted unfathomable cruelty at the hands of their jailers. In Oct. 1988, after almost three decades of incarceration, Peñalver was released and banished. From exile in Los Angeles he wrote about the "naked brutality" and round-the-clock beating and harassment that he had endured: "They made the men eat grass, they submerged them in sewage, they beat them hard with bayonets and they hit them with fence posts until their bones rattled."
Peñalver didn't carry the left-wing ideological identity card that made Castro a fan of
Angel de Fana, who is white, is another of the exiled plantados. He told me last week in an email that during his many years in prison with Peñalver, "I witnessed how he was a victim of 'additional' punishment simply for being black."

Are these things NOT a change in policies, Multi-Names?

These changes are indeed,'for the good of all Cubans'!

Did you not fall on your head, when still a baby?

If not, what is the answer to your idiotic statements!

Viva Cuba, Viva Castro!
