Here at Huck, we want to talk about Cuba. As Obama embarks on a historic visit to the island, the next step in the restoration of diplomatic relations between Cuba and their most powerful neighbour, there are changes afoot for this island nation.
Sure, there’s been a lot of talk about the government in Cuba, and what this new relationship might mean for U.S. corporations and the powerful in both states. But what does the end of trade embargoes, increased access to the internet and the continued repression of dissenting voices really mean? This week we’re looking at life from the ground up. The rebels, punks, skaters and firestarters paddling against the flow to make their voices heard. As the week goes on, we’ll be speaking to political dissidents, artists, entrepreneurs and people going against the grain to get an insight into what’s happening in Cuba in 2016.
Keep an eye out here for all our Cuba week stories, but we’ll be adding the highlights below throughout #CubaWeek.
