Yoani Sanchez urges Brazil to be tougher on Cuba

Cuban blogger and dissident Yoani Sanchez urged the Brazilian government, which for years has coddled the brutal Castro dictatorship, to be tougher on the Cuban regime.

Via Folha de S.Paulo:

Dissident urges criticism of Cuba by Brazil

The Cuban blogger and activist Yoani Sánchez urged the government of Dilma Rousseff in Sao Paulo yesterday to take a " more energetic" and "tougher" position to address the issue of human rights with the government of Raúl Castro.

"There is a lack of toughness or frankness when talking about the subject of human rights on the island. There has been too much silence. The people do not forget," said Sánchez.

In Brazil since Monday, in her first foreign trip in nine years, Sánchez became a topic of clashes between protesters and MPs for and against the communist government of Cuba, provoking protests and tense situations.

    Oh, I'm sure Brazil will really clean up its act. And there hasn't been silence; there's been collusion and deliberate complicity with evil. Ask Lula, who dismissed the dead Orlando Zapata as a common delinquent.
