IEA Podcast: The Cuban uprising – what’s next?

Last month, food and medicine shortages sparked riots in Cuba, with people rallying against the communist regime. Protesters were heard calling: “We have no fear” and “Down with the dictatorship” as they staged the biggest revolt against the government for decades. IEA Communications & Marketing Assistant, Kieran Neild-Ali, sat down with Head of Political Economy Dr Kristian Niemietz to discuss the Cuban uprising, asking why some politicians on the left are often apologists for Castro’s revolution. They discuss the history of the brutal regime and predict what could happen next for Cuba.
