Here is what he said in his visit to Chile: "Since taking office, I’ve announced the most significant changes to my nation’s policy towards Cuba in decades. I’ve made it possible for Cuban Americans to visit and support their families in Cuba. We’re allowing Americans to send remittances that bring some economic hope for people across Cuba, as well as more independence from Cuban authorities."
"Going forward, we’ll continue to seek ways to increase the independence of the Cuban people, who I believe are entitled to the same freedom and liberty as everyone else in this hemisphere. I will make this effort to try to break out of this history that’s now lasted for longer than I’ve been alive."
"But Cuban authorities must take some meaningful actions to respect the basic rights of their own people — not because the United States insists upon it, but because the people of Cuba deserve it."
Message to Barack Obama: It is not your island and American imperialism no longer rules it. If you really wanted to do something constructive, rather than constantly whine, you would lift the genocidal Cuba blockade/embargo. The Cuban people repudiate and condemn you, and I add my voice to theirs.
