“My son and daughter don’t have any business, they are normal citizens in this country, workers, and with their salaries they can’t think about whether they are going to build a house because it’s impossible. They can’t do it, not even she who is married, nor he who is single and can still live with me here. So, I don’t know what the truth is.”

“I have the money but haven’t been able to buy yet, because they are still ‘behind the curtain’. Do you understand me? You had to give the lawyer a thousand “FULAS” (referring to US dollars) and the other side 500 more. If they find out about this, the house is confiscated and you lose everything. That is still what goes on today – buying and selling in secret.”

Cuba’s government has pledged to legalise the buying and selling of homes to bring the country’s informal housing market out of the shadows.
A chronic housing shortage has caused Cubans to get together to strike illegal deals that often involve thousands of US dollars in under-the-table payments for properties.
They are breaking not just the law but communist doctrine by trading and profiting in property, but now President Raul Castro has promised to legalise the purchase and sale of homes part of an economic reform package.
Cuba already is letting islanders go into business for themselves in 178 designated activities, as restaurateurs, wedding planners, plumbers, carpenters.
An above board housing market promises multiple benefits for the cash-strapped island: it would help ease a housing crunch, stimulate construction employment and generate badly needed tax revenue.
The Cuban government puts the housing shortfall at almost 500,000 homes.
The result is legions of bickering divorcees trapped under the same roofs; newlyweds forced to bunk up with siblings, cousins, uncles, aunts; old people unable to repair their crumbling homes.
Juana Ines Delgado’s plight is typical. She shares her tiny studio in Old Havana with her grown son, married daughter and 4-year-old granddaughter, while her son-in-law spends nights at his aunt’s place down the street.
While they wait for the new law to be enacted and the specifics to be announced, Cubans’ legal options are few.
They can enrol in cooperative construction projects, build on existing properties or join the long waiting list for government housing.
Raul Castro has said home ownership will be limited to one per individual to avoid accumulation of wealth.

Cuban Cars – Real vintage cars as seen in Cuba ‘s streets

This movie shows the vintage cars of Cuba as seen on the streets with all its flaws and beauty.

Cuba is famous for its old cars and trucks, which can be seen in daily use throughout the country. For the first part of the 20th century, most new vehicles came to Cuba from the United States. The flow stopped in late 1959 when economic reforms by the then-new government of Fidel Castro prevented Cubans from buying cars on credit. A subsequent U.S. trade embargo, instituted in October 1960 in response to Cuba’s seizure of U.S.-owned properties, not only ensured that new vehicle exports would remain halted, but also denied Cuban motorists a direct source of replacement parts. As a result, Cubans became expert at adapting or fabricating parts to keep on the road cars that in other countries would long since have been recycled.Their pastel colours, tall fins and extensive chrome make them a favourite subject for tourist

The Soviet Union supplied the island with Volgas, Moskvich 1500s, Ladas and other Eastern Bloc cars, mainly for state use.

The Soviet Union also sent heavy trucks such as the ubiquitous ZIL and the rugged KrAZ. Cars also trickled in from Europe and, in later years, Asia. Since 2009, Cuba has imported sedans from Chinese automaker Geely to serve as police cars, taxis and rental vehicles.

As many as 60,000 American vehicles are in use on the island, nearly all in private hands. Pre-1960 vehicles remain the property of their original owners and descendants, and can be sold to other Cubans providing the proper traspaso certificate is in place. Such transactions can be difficult, but in 2010, reforms approved by a Communist Party congress were expected to legalize the sale between Cuban citizens of all cars, as well as real estate.

Of Cuba’s vintage American cars, many have been modified with newer engines, disc brakes and other parts, often scavenged
from Soviet cars, and most bear the marks of decades of use. Others, however, have been lovingly preserved in their original condition, and would be coveted by collectors in other countries. Apart from a brief period in the 1990s, however, the Castro government has forbidden the sale of Cuban vehicles to foreigners.

Termed “the best look at Cuba since Castro toppled the Batista regime” by the news agency United Press International, this ground-breaking work of international advocacy journalism was one of the first independently produced documentaries to be broadcast on national television.

The first American television crew to be allowed into Cuba since the 1959 revolution, DCTV toured the country for six weeks to produce this candid portrait of life in Castro’s Cuba. With his direct approach, Jon Alpert interviews ordinary people – farmers, factory workers, housewives – to elicit their stories of life before and after the revolution.

A powerful historical record, Cuba: The People, Part 1 details how the Cuban revolution addressed the issues of housing, medical care, and education at the time and presents a counterpoint for comparison to the Cuban situation today. Issues related to human rights, freedom of the press, and religion are also examined.

Produced with one of the first 1/2- inch color video systems available, Cuba: The People, Part I also made broadcast history as the first 1/2-inch color videotape to be aired nationally on public television.
