Technology and Protest in Cuba ft. Antonio Garcia Martinez

How should we think about the recent protests in Cuba?  Author and commentator Antonio Garcia Martinez joins the show to discuss politics in Cuba.  We discuss the fascinating history of the internet in Cuba, how technology led to the recent round of protests, how the state has reacted to this new wave of protests and technology, and what the US should do to help everyday Cubans.   Links: Inside Cuba's DIY Internet - https://www.wired.com/2017/07/inside-cubas-diy-internet-revolution/ Articles from The Pull Request - https://www.thepullrequest.com/p/the-invisible-boot https://www.thepullrequest.com/p/running-internet-to-cuba https://www.thepullrequest.com/p/the-contrarevolucion-will-be-livestreamed   To make sure you hear every episode, join our Patreon at https://www.patreon.com/neoliberalproject.
