Les Cubains quittent le Club Med!

Vous avez entendu la nouvelle? Le Petit Frere en Chef  de la Republique (socialiste) de Cuba vient d’annoncer que presque tous  les Cubains seraient dorenavant autorises a voyager a l’etranger. Selon la rumeur, la Colombie, l’Equateur et le Peru vont bientot  emboiter le pas a Cuba en ce domaine et permettre a leurs ressortissants de quitter a volonte le territoire national. C’est formidable!

Oh non ! J’avais oublie: Les citoyens Colombiens, Peruviens, Equatoriens ont toujours eu le droit de voyager. Quel con je suis!

About Jacques Delacroix

I write short stories, current events comments, and sociopolitical essays, mostly in English, some in French. There are other people with the same first name and same last name on the Internet. I am the one who put up on Amazon in 2014: "I Used to Be French: an Immature Autobiography" and also: "Les pumas de grande-banlieue." To my knowledge, I am the only Jacques Delacroix with American and English scholarly publications. In a previous life, I was a teacher and a scholar in Organizational Theory and in the Sociology of Economic Development. (Go ahead, Google me!) I live in the People’s Green Socialist Republic of Santa Cruz, California.

    This could be huge. It’s not being covered much, even here in Florida. It remains to be seen how difficult the Cuban government will make the return trip, but this could be a big deal. Maybe Yoani Sanchez will be among the first test cases. I know it’s premature but this could be something worth celebrating.

    • Bruce: (This is a comment to my little snippet in French) My best guess is that it’s not going to be huge because few Cubans have any money at all and because they will need tourist visas to enter most countries. It seems to me that there are not enough Cuban-Americans to foot a huge travel bill. Also, many government, beginning with ours, will not be eager to grant visas to people who have little reason to go home.

      Perhaps, this will be turned into an embarrassment for the US: ” See they don’t want you.”

      Yoni Sanchez ( a brave Cuban dissenter, her blog linked here as Generation Y) will not leave, I think. I am guessing she has too much invested in the demise of the tyrannical regime.
