Another arrest in Cuba

calixto

On Friday, Reporters Without Borders denounced the arrest and imprisonment of yet another independent journalist in Cuba. Calixto Ramon Martinez Arias was arrested on April 23rd and is still awaiting to see what charges the state police will bring against him since they have yet to make up their minds which crime would be most convenient for their purposes.

It is interesting to note that while the slave masters in Havana continue to crack the whip on their slaves with no sign of abatement, lawmakers in D.C. are spending their time and energy crying about losing millions of dollars in revenue due to the US embargo. Then again, it is not like Calixto Ramon Martinez Arias is a human in their estimation--he is just a Cuban. So, in a twisted and perverted way, one can understand why the concern in D.C. regarding Cuba is centered around cash and not the people on the island.

Marc over at Uncommon Sense has more on this latest victim of oppression in Cuba.
