This Is Not from The Onion, but the UN

Posted by Juan Carlos Hidalgo

Cuba recognized in the UN Human Rights Council

The HRC’s press release states that:

    Cuba had withstood many tests, and continued to uphold the principles of objectivity, impartiality and independence in pursuance of the realisation of human rights. Cuba was and remained a good example of the respect for human rights, including economic, social and cultural rights. The Universal Periodic Review of Cuba clearly reflected the progress made by Cuba and the Cuban people in the protection and promotion of human rights, and showed the constructive and responsive answer of Cuba to the situation of human rights. Cuba was the victim of an unjust embargo, but despite this obstacle, it was very active in the field of human rights.

What can I say... yes the UN Human Rights Council is something of a joke.

For a fifty year old dictatorial regime, Cuba sure has an excellent human rights record... you're looking really, really ridiculous when you treat Castro as "Axis of Evil" material... not that that's reason enough to be jubilant if I were Cuban.

dead0man, no offense, but what makes you think human rights are violated in Cuba?  Most people I know who are from Cuba or have been to Cuba (my father included) have nothing but things to say about them.

Laughable assessment of the human rights situation there aside, it goes so far as to blame the U.S. for any imperfection in that record?

Is this real?

One small one is that you can't, you know, leave.

Last I checked, almost 10% of the Cuban-born population of the world lived elsewhere. Grin

I may remind you...

In 1995 the US government entered into an agreement with the Cuban government to resolve the emigration crisis that created the Mariel Boatlift of 1980, when Castro opened the docks to anyone who wanted to leave. The result of the negotiations was an agreement under which the United States was required to issue 20,000 visas annually to Cuban emigrants. This quota is rarely filled; the Bush administration has refused to comply with the act, issuing only 505 visas to Cubans in the first six months of 2003. It has also blocked some Cubans who have visas.

If I drove three miles north of here and stood on a street corner handing out pamphlets about Cuba's "respect for human rights", I'd get lynched.

Oh, I don't think anyone is denying that. Grin
