The curtain rises and a well-known government opponent is writing a message to request money from a notorious Cuban terrorist. On the stage set the intercepted e-mails hang where everything can be clearly seen. (The curtain falls.)

The curtain rises and we hear the Chief of the U.S. Interests Section in Havana, Cuba saying something on his cell phone that indicates he will send money to the opponent in the previous scene. On a video screen the faces of both people are being watched. (The curtain falls.)

The curtain rises and we see the Minister of Foreign Affairs, in front of all the national press and the foreign journalists accredited in the country, denying the participation of the American government in this game. (The curtain falls.)

Suggested titles:
Who’s next?
Here, everyone is an idiot
My privacy is your privacy
Enemy sought
As noted, there will be changes

Reinaldo Escobar (1947), an independent journalist since 1989, writes from Cuba where he was born and continues to live. He received his degree in Journalism from the University of Havana in 1971 and subsequently worked for different Cuban publications. His articles can be found in various European publications, and in the digital magazines "Cuba Encuentro" and "Contodos."

Desde Aquí/From Here is a personal undertaking born from the need to write about those topics that fill my head every day but that cannot find a space in the official Cuban media.
