Friends and enemies

That decision by the United Nations to effectively give the Castro regime a clean bill of health when it comes to human rights has been declared a "historic victory" by Havana, as you would expect.

In reality, it's nothing less than yet another shameful abdication of its responsibilities by the very body that is supposed to protect and enhance human rights.

As prominent dissident Oswaldo Paya says in this interview with the Spanish news agency Efe, the decision by the UN rewards the regime "while punishing ordinary Cuban citizens".
