The Chilean President is scheduled to make a trip to Havana, during which she has declined to meet with a group of dissidents and former political prisoners. Child of the Revolution [1] is disheartened by the news, saying: “Given Ms Bachelet’s experiences under the Pinochet dictatorship and her long-held commitment to democratic values in Latin America, the decision to travel to Cuba is of concern, and her decision to snub the dissidents is well, disappointing, to say the least.”
