Anyone aware of the concert in cuba?

I am watching it now, I was born in Cuba, but I have lived in the US for 50 years, I am emotional at seeing this type of event that has not happened in Cuba in 50 years! Giving these oppressed people a chance if only for a few hours to forget their lack of freedom, and lack of dignity, not to mention their lack of necessities, like food!

  • I was in Cuba a few years ago, on vacation. loved it ! Instead of going on tourist trips, I got around on local buses to places not on the tourist itineraries and had a wonderful time. Everyone was so helpful and friendly. No drugs, no MacDonalds, all the food was fresh, but what really made it was the people.

    I hope to again someday as it was the nicest vacation I ever had in the Americas, and the chearest.

  • Janet116, I am glad you liked it, it is a beautiful Island, but are you aware that there is a facade for the tourist and another for the people? Those firendly people are not allowed to swim in Varadero beach, because it is a tourist attraction, they are not allowed to eat in those restaurants. That fresh food you talk about is never consumed by the people of this country, only if they are lucky enough to have relatives in the Us that send them $ to be able to buy it in the black market.

  • Anon, The military base is good you will be living and seeing the beautiful Cuba shown to tourist.

    The sad part is the poverty and hunger the Cubans live with, aside from any type of freedom.

  • I saw the concert for PEACE online from Cuba.
    I hope to visit some day. Cubans as a whole have much better education and healthcare than others in Latin America. And there is much less disparity in wealth from the richest to the poorest like in other Latin countries. and the arts have flourished there.
    ¡Viva Cuba!!
    Linda que linda es Cuba, '¡quien la defiende la quiere mas!!

    Time to lift the embargo!
