  • asombra: Maybe next time “those people” warn Latrines against electing a Castro groupie, they’ll listen. Or not.

  • asombra: Like Mrs. Clinton says, “What difference does it make?”

  • asombra: Reminds me of a hardcore “miliciana” type who definitely did nocturnal CDR guard duty, among many other such things,...

  • asombra: There’s no outrage or call for action because it’s not “progressive” to give a shit.

Diaz-Balart Condemns Brutal Arrest of Pro-Democracy Activists Antonio Rodiles and Ángel Santiesteban

Diaz-Balart Condemns Brutal Arrest of Pro-Democracy Activists Antonio Rodiles and Ángel Santiesteban

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) today condemned the brutal arrest and imprisonment of Antonio Rodiles, director of the Cuban free opinion program entitled, “Estado de SATS,” and fellow pro-democracy activist, Ángel Santiesteban.

“It is an outrage that the Cuban dictatorship violently arrested dozens of pro-democracy activists last week as they expressed their desire for fundamental human rights and freedoms in Cuba.  Antonio Rodiles, a bright, young pro-democracy activist, leader of the “For Another Cuba” campaign, and director of the cutting-edge program “Estado de SATS,” was severely beaten and remains in prison along with fellow pro-democracy activist and protester Ángel Santiesteban.

These brave pro-democracy leaders, and all other political prisoners in Cuba, must be released immediately, and any baseless, trumped up charges facing them must be dropped without delay,” said Diaz-Balart.
