Raul Castro worried that Socialist Misery will not live on

HAVANA – Cuban President Raul Castro told lawmakers on Saturday in a harsh, critical speech that the country and its leaders must rectify the errors they have committed because otherwise the revolution and the efforts of entire generations will be lost.

“Either we rectify or our time for skirting the precipice will be over, and we will destroy, we will destroy...the efforts of entire generations,” Castro said at the National Assembly.

During his address lasting more than two hours, Castro made a review of the errors committed in the country, was critical of socialism being misinterpreted, and announced the very strict demands he was making of the country’s leaders with regard to reforms on the island.
