    Re: Cuba Celebrates 59th Anniversary Of Revolution

    you talking about cuba still????cuz the video i posted proves that completely wrong,unless you are comparing 1859 cuba instead of 1959 cuba to castro cuba.
    No it did't

    It acheived almost 100% literacy (before thre revolution 25% was illiterate)
    It has a higher life expectancy than the rest of latin america and the carribian
    Only 1.4% unemploymenet rate (Before the revolution you had about 40% unemployed or underemployed ...)
    High on human development index compared to the rest of the carribian
    Healthcare is one of the best in the regions.

    UNICEF - Cuba - Statistics
    Cuba | Data
    List of countries by Human Development Index - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Healthcare in Cuba - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    BTW aid form the USSR was about the same as US aid to other latin american countries CUBA TODAY

    Before the Revolution
    The GULLY | Americas | CUBA | What Castro Found

    • 25% of the labor force was chronically unemployed.

    • 1 million people were illiterate ( in a population of about 5.5 million).

    • 27% of urban children, not to speak of 61% of rural children, were not attending school.

    • Racial discrimination was widespread.

    • 75% of rural dwellings were huts made from palm trees.

    • More than 50% had no toilets of any kind.

    • 85% had no inside running water.

    • 91% had no electricity.

    • There was only 1 doctor per 2,000 people in rural areas.

    Look photos are not evidence for a country ... I can find plenty of pictures from the poor United states, that doesn't matter ... what matters is numbers.

    SO yeah ... people are poor in Cuba, every on in the carribian and central America is poor, but Cuba is doing better, and is doing better than it was under Batista (for most cubans), yeah Cubans immigrate to AMerica ... So do other people from other countries in Latin America ....

    Pictures don't count for ****.
