    The laws are used by some citizens today like waste paper. If we take as

    an example the acts of repudiation — where citizens gather and scream at

    and even physically attack their fellow citizens or their homes — surely

    they would change their minds. To those who by Law are allowed to engage

    in this type of act.

    If we describe the acts that are undertaken and that enjoy immunity, we

    don't think about murder, manslaughter or robbery, because these are

    addressed in our Cuban Penal Code. We refer to violations and crimes

    that emerge from these illicit acts.

    These acts of repudiation are an act and to maintain a

    permissive attitude towards them is intentional. The

    could entail multiple crimes, such as public disorder, injury, threats,

    violation of the home; all with a high social danger.

    According to the text of the Constitution we are all obligated to remain

    in strict compliance with the law. Of course, if would be utopian and

    excessively confident to let the Governing Council of the People's

    Supreme Court resolve this problem as long as it is not independent of

    the Executive Power.

    If, indeed, in their role to administer justice and to ensure compliance

    with the law, the courts and prosecutors are those who allow these

    illicit and immoral actions to arise, and thus they confirm the

    suspicion of many that "the country is ungovernable." With contempt for

    the law we ask a question: What is a country without laws?

    The Organs of State Security belong to the Ministry of the Interior,

    which acts without impunity, sparing no expense. What happens is

    considered "collateral damage," and in this way any injuries are justified.

    The Cuban Penal Code in its first article defines as one of its

    objectives to contribute to developing in all citizens the conscience of

    respect for the law, of doing one's duties, and of correctly observing

    the norms of coexistence.

    In our criminal legislation there is no specific article that

    criminalizes this reprehensible act and hence the degrading acts against

    "the most dangerous for the Country," are without an doubt the work of

    many in a country located on Mars.

    As a starting point, we must internalize how difficult it is to create a

    true nation, with respect for the others, and forgetting all that

    visceral hatred for those who think differently. However, despite all

    the force of the government, every day the number of people who want

    change, but who out of fear don't demand it, is growing.
