All together now, chaps
You know, the students who used a meeting with Ricardo Alarcon to make the president of the rubberstamp Cuban parliament look like an incompetent, arrogant and out-of-touch fool?
Well, in case you thought the students were being in any way disloyal to the Castro regime, the UCI hierarchy has just issued a public statement (in Spanish) correcting such heinous misinterpretations.
The statement, which is supposed to have been approved by students and their tutors, criticises the world media (“imperialist lackeys”) for assuming that the tough questioning of Alarcon was a sign of discontent or unrest on campus.
Not at all.
In fact, the statement says that students and staff are 100 per cent behind the Castro brothers and the “revolutionary program”.
