    Prostitution – Made in Cuba?

    The news spread through the international media, except for Cubans, of
    course, because it pertained to the “secret,” a word that in the last
    days, after the congress of journalists, has been fashionable. To top it
    off, they were the same political leaders who tried to blame the
    communicators for informing without their consent, and even more,
    without their will.

    What’s certain is that in Ecuador they have discovered a network of
    trafficking of Cuban women, who — deceived by the dream of getting to
    Miami — were taken off the island and later obligated to sell their
    bodies in a chain of brothels.

    Fate again mocks these women, who prostitute themselves in Cuba in
    exchange for almost nothing. The majority are cheap, who work on the
    dark corners of the barrios. A few make it to the big leagues, which is
    access to tourism.

    Always victims — be it in Havana or in Quito — the Cuban government
    should influence their legal situations, and shouldn’t make expatriation
    mandatory for them. In particular, it’s Mariela Castro, from Cenesex,
    who should take care of the fate of these young women, those who suffer
    and pay for the social whims imposed, first by her uncle, Fidel, and now
    by her father, Raul. To be saddled with their last name is a stigma that
    would take several generations to clean.
