Building a wall
The dictator is building a wall in attempt to block out the ticker. For 47 years information has been controlled by this regime. Just as Lenin the founder of soviet communism stated "We are the real revolutionaries..! yes, we are going to destroy everything, and on the ruins we will build our temple" The dictator has destroyed everything, destroyed the worship of God, and basically built an altar to himself.
CB at Killcastro has excellent commentary concerning the wall and the implications. As always he pulls no punches and tells it like it is.
Val at Babalu has an excellent post concerning the Great Wall of Havana.
