Ros-Lehtinen Says That As The Cuban Tyrant Raul Castro Celebrates His 80th Birthday On Friday, The Cuban Nation Faces More Repression & Hunger

Washington, DC – Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) issued the following statement regarding the upcoming 80th birthday of Cuban dictator Raul Castro, noting how the Cuban people have nothing to look forward to and have nothing to celebrate as the octogenarian clique of tyrants that misgoverns them refuse to cede power after 50 plus years of failures.

Ros-Lehtinen’s statement:

“This upcoming Friday the Cuban tyrant Raul Castro celebrates his 80th birthday, of which 52 of those years he and his brother Fidel have been misgoverning Cuba and its 11 million inhabitants. While Raul, his family and the governing elite will enjoy rich and sumptuous festivities and meals to mark the occasion, the Cuban nation goes hungry and Cuban families struggle to put the most basic meals on their dinner tables.

Raul Castro and his family may celebrate but for the Cuban people there is no hope and nothing to look forward to other than more repression and hunger. The octogenarian clique that rules Cuba will not cede power through diplomatic niceties nor appeasement; they will only go when the international community truly bans together and sends a clear message that 50 plus years of dictatorship is enough.

On Raul Castro’s 80th birthday, let’s send the Cuban people the gift of reinvigorating our efforts to bring freedom to their island nation.”
