    NY Times is useful for once: Cubans Denounce ‘Misery’ in Biggest Protests in Decades

    Cubans Denounce ‘Misery’ in Biggest Protests in Decades

    MIAMI — Shouting “Freedom” and other anti-government slogans, thousands of Cubans took to the streets in cities around the country on Sunday to protest food and medicine shortages, in a remarkable eruption of discontent not seen in nearly 30 years.

    Thousands of people marched through San Antonio de los Baños, southwest of Havana, with videos streaming live on Facebook for nearly an hour before they suddenly disappeared. As the afternoon wore on, other videos appeared from demonstrations elsewhere, including Palma Soriano, in the country’s southeast. Hundreds of people also gathered in Havana, where a heavy police presence preceded their arrival.

    “The people are dying of hunger!” one woman shouted during a protest filmed in the province of Artemisa, in the island’s west. “Our children are dying of hunger!”

    One clip circulating on Twitter showed protesters overturning a police car in Cardenas, 90 miles east of Havana. Another video showed people looting from one of the much-detested government-run stores, which sell wildly overpriced items in currencies most Cubans do not possess...
    Freedom is an anti-government slogan. Governments are supposed to protect freedom. In reality governments inhibit freedom. People living under communism understand very well how government is anti-freedom.

    I am a libertarian. I am advocating everyone enjoy maximum freedom on both personal and economic issues as long as they do not bring violence unto others.

    Lol -

    I'm surprised this obvious Freudian mistake slipped through the NYT editors... I'm sure they'll fix it in a revision.

    What is clear is that the NYT sees shouts of freedom as being anti-government. And they line up on the side of government.
    "And now that the legislators and do-gooders have so futilely inflicted so many systems upon society, may they finally end where they should have begun: May they reject all systems, and try liberty; for liberty is an acknowledgment of faith in God and His works." - Bastiat

    "It is difficult to free fools from the chains they revere." - Voltaire

    It's a ClA color revolution until confirmed otherwise.
