Fariñas (Updated)

No word yet this morning on the state of Guillermo Fariñas health. Last report was around 3 AM where his mother stated that he was receiving medication via IV.

Will update as news comes in.

Ive received quite a few emails from folks asking what they can do to help. We all feel a bit useless and frustrated right now given that we're outside Cuba and feel that we cant take some kind of action to help Fariñas.

But we can and there is something we can all do. Yesterday evening the term "Fariñas" reached the number 2 Trending Topic spot on Twitter in the USA. That may not sound like much but it's actually super important.

Twitter is used by almost 100 Million people throughout the world and the more exposure anything gets on twitter, the greater the likelihood that the story or event or person being tweeted about will make headlines in the MSM, and the more headlines in the MSM, the more pressure on the regime.

So get tweeting, folks, and while youre at it, facebook the hell out of this as well. You can use TweetDeck and post to both twitter and facebook simultaneously. These are the new weapons we have against totalitarianism and everyone needs to be armed to the teeth and proficient in their use.

Update:If you think that these new technologies dont have the commie creeps in Cuba shittin' pickles, check out the #Fariñas search on Twitter. The regime has sent its sycophantic vendepatrias in to do damage control. All of whom are desperately trying to discredit Fariñas, Tamayo, etal...At first I got angry and began responding rather passionately, but now, after reading their tweets, I just feel real sorry for them. They are blind to the world around them.

Update: Here's a blog set up specifically for information on Guillermos Fariñas.

Petition for the release of Cuba's political prisoners.
