For the first time ever Cuba has issued an invitation to a UN Human Rights special rapporteur. Article here. .
It looks as if the rapporteur being invited is only limited to looking at the “right to food”. Not as big as other rights maybe, but in Cuba that should be interesting.
If you have not followed the issue of human rights rapporteurs and Cuba, and really who has, for decades Cuba has simply refused to allow any one of them to visit the island. It went so far as lobbying successfully to have the UN abolish the position of human rights rapporteur to Cuba, only last June. And now this.
Is it a signal of change at the top? That’s my guess, but who knows.
