Breaking news

Word from Cuba is that Coco Fariñas has been transferred to a hospital after losing consciousness. Will post more as news comes in.

More here from raw story:

Farinas, in an interview with the Spanish daily El Pais Tuesday, defiantly vowed to press on with a hunger strike "until the final consequences" to demand the release of sick political prisoners.

"Yes, I can die. The time has come for the world to realize that this government is cruel. There are moments in the history of a country when there must be martyrs," Farinas told El Pais.

    Like I said with Tamayo, It's infuriating we can't do anything. That's unacceptable! I wish we all just woke up, got out of our comfort zones and did something! Same goes to the Cuban people.

    Felix,

    The sad part is that the Cuban people need to stand-up first and then we can offer our support from here.

    Unfortunately the people in the island don't want to revolt.

  • Mr. Mojito

    Felix, the question becomes what can we do? Even if you had 500 exiles in Miami willing to risk their lives it wouldn't be enough. The regime is entrenched, armed to the teeth, has a nationwide CDR system ov every block, has some of the best intel and spies in the world, and has a standing army/militia of over 1,000,000 people. 82 men on a yacht won't do it this time. The regime has to be strangled and collapse from within.

  • Felixthe3rd

    Yeah and that's what irks me more than ever.
