Cuba: We don't wanna play revolution anymore

CIEGO DE ÁVILA, Cuba, April (Nacho Valdés, APLA / www.cubanet.org) - In what some observers called a first, the Cuban government weekly La Vanguardia acknowledged a general lack of interest on the part of the population toward participation in Revolutionary organizations.

The paper reported a significant drop in membership at the Federation of Cuban Women, the organization led by Raúl Castro's wife, Vilma Espín.

A local supplement, El Invasor, on its April 17 issue, reported that in Ciego de Ávila province membership in the Federation dropped to 69.8 % during the first quarter.
