Thought of the day

Today’s Thought of the day comes from Cuban human rights activist and former prisoner of conscience Pedro Argüelles Moran, on the exclusion of the Cuba government at the upcoming Summit of the Americas (via Hablalo Sin Miedo – my translation):

Cuba is not excluded from the Summit of the Americas, the one who is actually excluded is the totalitarian Castro regime because it does not represent the Cuban people. The Cuban people are all Cubans, regardless of where we live or how we think. The totalitarian Castro regime represents the unpunished violations of the rights and liberties inherent to the dignity of a person.
