The ' Revolución es' (Revolution is) poster it's just one of the many elements you will find reminding people of the revolution, it's principles and keeping the new generations connected with the revolutionary ideals.
From my interactions with people on the street, it became clear that the younger generation, confronted with lack of possibilities and fully aware of what those are due to the impact of globalization and the internet, is struggling to connect with the ideals of the revolution.
It’s also true that beyond what they hear from their parents, most have no reference point of what life was like in the island before the revolution. It’s notorious the different perspective you hear from those that are old enough to remember; from those that actually lived in the years of Batista.
It’s hard for me to take a stand on which direction this system should go. One thing it’s certain, the Cuban people are magnificent, warm, joyful and strong. I have no doubt in my mind that they will find in their destiny the right social and economical model that best works for them. As for me, I continue to search for a working system by which I feel more fully represented. Hopefully one that will combine the best of both worlds, one where I will feel more enthusiastic and committed, in a more explicit and direct way.
