Cuban priest to the European and American Left: socialism fails

Fr. Alberto Reyes Pías, a priest of the Archdiocese of Camagüey, asks leftists to recognize the failure of the socialist model imposed on Cuba 62 years ago. The island, he says, “has been for both the European and the Latin American Left, the dream and the ideal of what has never existed.” In reality, Cuba is like a nation at war “where everything becomes an exhausting odyssey: food, medicine, transportation, schooling, working conditions.”
