Yoani’s comment at point 2:11 –

“I think it is time for a responsible exile community [and] a now mature civil society to sit down and discuss what would be best [for Cuba].”

I don’t get it. Why is she promoting sitting down with a “responsible exile community” to discuss what would be best [for Cuba] and then privately meet with the leaders of the irresponsible exile community.

Yoani’s fan base in Cuba would have exploded if she had refused to meet with Cuban right-wing congressperson Ros-Lehtinen. Meeting with the individual responsible for negotiating the release and pardon of Orlando Bosch is not likely going expand Yoani’s fan base in the “now mature civil society” in Cuba.
