This weekend, horrific images of the extreme poverty experienced by the Cuban people are reaching social networks.
A video clip posted in cyberspace shows a group of people collecting bananas from a container, while one of them tells the event in astonishment.
“Look at this, mister, these bananas will be thrown into the trash and people will pick them up,” says the Cuban who filmed the unfortunate scene with regret.
“Look at the hunger here. Check this out. What disrespect. Look out for it. I’ve never seen it, sir,” he adds, touched by the incident.
In the background someone can be heard saying, “Upload it to Facebook,” as the group collects bananas from the trash and puts them in bags. }
“How awful”; “The fruits of communism”; “The revolution will remove even the garbage cistern”; “They believed in the representative democracy that Castro told them, let them take it now”; “Speechless,” was the reaction of some users.

The singer told her colleague: “Nacho, Cubans may have been the happiest people in the world, but Cubans have lost their joy because of the dictatorship that today makes them hungry and needy.”

“The Cubans do not need a festival to be happy, as you say, and they do not need artists to go and bring joy,” he said. “The Cubans need a government that cares for them and provides them with food and medicine.”
“There are many problems we have there, it is not a festival or a concert that will solve the problem in Cuba. Remember what I told you, go to Cuba and open Cuba’s fridge, anyone….”
