From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In March 2009, President Raul Castro of Cuba dismissed numerous government ministers.





Economic reforms

In the article Purge Aims to Halt Cuba's Economic Free Fall, Miami Herald suggested that the purpose was to get rid of the people who may have stood in the way of economic reforms.[3]

On the other hand, Yoani Sánchez wrote "If the intention was to stimulate progressive measures, no functionary in charge of a ministry could have slowed them down. The intention, however, has been to delay the changes, to dull them, to buy time in the game of politics, while we lose months and months of time in our lives."[4]

Hugo Chávez

Former Mexican foreign minister Jorge Castañeda Gutman, in his Newsweek article published in the March 23 2009 issue, suggested that Hugo Chávez was plotting a coup in Cuba.[5]

According to his thesis, Hugo Chávez asked Leonel Fernandez of the Dominican Republic to support the plot, but he declined.
