Cuban Exiles News

Many Cubans who have come to the US disapprove of Castro's government, preferring our system of capitalism.  Many of those who fled in 1959 were from very wealthy, established families.  Exile groups exist for many reasons and have varied goals, but many share a strong determination to do whatever possible to bring about Castro's fall. 

Because of their strong activism, and generally extreme views, Cuban exile groups are a frequent source of news.
