Cuban Youth Agree with Change of Relations with U.S.

BBC’s Will Grant spoke with Cuban youth during a rally commemorating the life of Jose Marti. The discussion was to get the opinions of the youth of the nation on the changing relations with the United States. Many of the youth that were talked to agreed that opening ties is the right idea. Many of them seemed to think that the isolationist trend that has dominated the last few decades was of a conflict bore by their fathers and grandfathers, not them. A consensus seems to be that there is no problem between the average person in Cuba and America. Rather the only problem lies between the pasts that the government has led. In other words, it is the attitude of the older bureaucrats that have kept the countries apart, not the attitudes of those people actually living in the country.
