Program Title: What's behind Cuba's protest movement
Description: The historic protests that exploded across Cuba a week ago — and the government crackdown that followed — have cranked up pressure on both the Cuban and U.S. governments to fix the dire situation currently facing people on the island.

But while almost everyone agrees change is urgently needed, questions about what that change should look like, and who's to blame for the current crisis, are hotly disputed.

Today, Havana-based reporter Ed Augustin joins us to talk about what the protesters want and how Cuba got to this point.
