Urgent plea for Cuban activist Jorge Luis Garcia Perez “Antunez”

Urgent plea from Yris Tamara Pérez Aguilera, from Placetas, where she advises that Jorge Luis Garcia Perez Antunez is semi-unconscious in the seventh day of a hunger strike for the freedom of Jorge Vázquez Chaviano and cessation of repression against internal resistance.

One thought on “Urgent plea for Cuban activist Jorge Luis Garcia Perez “Antunez”

  1. While in college I once had my picture taken with Harry Wu, who spent nearly two decades in the Chinese gulag and later snuck back in to document the repulsive scene (I knew about this because, when I was young, I read about it in Reader’s Digest — then a sheer propaganda mag according to certain liberals).

    I remember feeling vaguely unworthy to so much as share a photograph with this man. I did it anyway because, really, how many times in one’s life is one able to share a picture frame with such a hero?

    We can’t say we haven’t been told about Cuba, and China, and elsewhere. We can pretend not to notice it. We can prefer not to think about it (as ignoble as that is). But I get tired of hearing about how admitted heroes like Solzhenitsyn “opened people’s eyes.” Good for them, I suppose. But why were their eyes closed to begin with? Did it really take a literary genius to make them see sense?
