  • Cuban IDs edited with digital suits and blouses

    (27 May 2016) Across Cuba and the world, tens of thousands of Cubans stare out of ID photos in elegant suits and dressy blouses they have never actually worn. Each imperceptibly altered photo is a tiny tribute to Cubans' finely honed ability to apply ingenious technical solutions to the problems of an island beset by economic scarcity. In this case the problem is relatively minor: how to look one's best in official photos when tropical heat, lack of air-conditioning and tight family budgets make it highly impractical to wear dressy clothes to the local photo studio. The answer: over-the-counter photo-editing programs and an informal sharing network of photo-shop owners who trade images of best-selling suits and blouses among themselves.

The answer: over-the-counter photo-editing programs and an informal sharing network of photo-shop owners who trade images of best-selling suits and blouses among themselves. Lian Marrero, a 27-year-old electrician who runs a busy photo-studio in the front room of the home he shares with his wife, said they had offered clients actual clothes to try on but people found it unappealing to wear suits that others had been sweating in. And so, new technology solved an old problem for many Cubans, eliminating a costly burden for those living on meager state salaries, at the same time giving many Cubans a chance to remake themselves and have a little fun.

SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) Martha Beatriz Roque, Cuban dissident: "We have a great absence here today. It is our 333 political prisoners that cannot be here to hear your words and to hear what we think." 10. Wide shot back of the room with audience watching Walesa on screen STORYLINE: Former Polish President and Nobel Peace Prize winner Lech Walesa advised Cuban dissidents to be ready for a transition to democracy Saturday, saying the collapse of communism in Eastern Europe had caught his own country off-guard. The former labor leader and political dissident under Soviet rule addressed opponents of Cuban President Fidel Castro via Internet during a morning conference at the Havana home of the top U.S. diplomat in Cuba. The Cuban government maintains that there will be no such transition on the island, and that the current economic and political systems will remain after the 79-year-old Castro is gone from power. About 100 people attended the event, including a dozen of Cuba's better known dissidents, diplomats from Poland and other Eastern European nations and international journalists. The government of Fidel Castro did not immediately comment on the event, but it has grown increasingly critical in the past year of Eastern European nations that have offered moral support to Cuban dissidents. Poland was one of several ideological allies of Cuba before the breakup of the former Soviet Union and subsequent collapse of communism across Eastern Europe. Walesa, 62, a former electrician and union organizer who was imprisoned during martial law in the 1980s, served as Poland's first popularly elected president from 1990 to 1995. Longtime dissident and former political prisoner Martha Beatriz Roque told Walesa that more than 330 people are jailed in Cuba as prisoners of conscience. "They have paid a very high price for liberty in Cuba," said Roque, one of 75 people - and the only woman - arrested in a crackdown on dissidents in March 2003. Roque was later paroled, but most of those 75 are serving sentences of up to 28 years on charges of working with Washington to undermine Castro's government - allegations they and U.S. officials deny. Fifteen have been freed for medical reasons. The meeting came just days after U.S. officials put up an electronic sign outside the American mission to broadcast human rights messages. Castro and other Cuban authorities have criticized a U.S. presidential commission report detailing how American aid can be used to promote a democratic transition on the island, calling it a thinly veiled blueprint for regime change.
