(p.75) Chapter 2 Good Cubans, Bad Cubans, and the Trappings of Revolutionary Faith
Visions of Power in Cuba

University of North Carolina Press

The chapter explores how the emergence of the Revolution as a fight between good and evil affected the potential for citizen participation. It discusses the reorientation of the armed forces and the impact of the Huber Matos affair, the mass demonstration of Catholic and civic activists, and cross-class conspiracies of faith and their consequences. The chapter also investigates the discrediting of public protests critical of state policy, through an analysis of the February 1960 visit of Soviet Vice-Premier Anastas Mikoyan and the demonstrations by students who denounced him for desecrating the legacy of José Martí.

Keywords:   Revolution, citizen participation, armed forces, Huber Matos, cross-class conspiracies, Anastas Mikoyan, José Martí
