May Day



Niste prieteni mi-au povestit de curand cum a fost excursia lor in Cuba, in luna ianuarie. Este o tara ca o capsula a timpului, in care recunoastem vremuri trecute, cu masini americane din anii '50, cu oameni cu obiceiuri caraibiene, cu servicii turistice foarte bune, cu moneda pentru populatie si peso convertibil pentru turisti - CUC. O tara foarte interesanta dar care isi traieste izolarea cu mandrie si pe care nu o intelege si nu o sprijina mai nimeni din restul mapamondului. O tara fara resurse pentru ca nu au unde sa isi vanda produsele... Nici nu puteam sa gasesc o zi mai nimerita pentru a posta acest videoclip, destul de tulburator de altfel.

Citat: Before Che/Castro, "... in 1958, Cuba had a higher per capita income than half of Europe. It had double Japan's per capita income. Cuban laborers, the unionized labor - the Cuban labor force was more unionized than the U.S. labor force - had the eighth highest wages in the world. This was at a time when Cubans could get a U.S. visa for the asking. Any Cubans could leave their country, with all of their property, at any time. At that time, in the 1950s, there were fewer Cubans living in the United States than there were Americans living in Cuba. No country in the world can make that claim. Cuba had the 13th lowest infant mortality rate, not in the hemisphere but in the world. Cuba had more doctors and dentists per capita than Great Britain and the United States."
