The Cuban exiles in Miami are now confronted with the reality that Cuba’s most famous dissident is firmly against the U.S. trade embargo. Only a few hours into her first ever foreign trip, Yoani Sánchez has already been accused of being a Castro agent by some of Miami’s historic Cuban exiles.
By the time she gets to Miami, she may have become persona non grata, as happened to Nelson Mandela.
The Cuba experts in Miami, the majority of whom left the island over 50 years ago, should make an effort to listen to the voices that are now speaking from inside the island.
