The reforms of the Castro dictatorship as described by a Cuban

If you want to know how the reforms of dictator Raul Castro are coming along in Cuba, you can listen to Reuters, the AP, and the "Cuba Experts," or, you can listen to an actual Cuban who lives in Cuba and has experienced the "reforms" of the Castro dictatorship firsthand and in the flesh.

Ladies in White leader Berta Soler as translated by Capitol Hill Cubans:

The police drag us around, beat us, pull our hair, scratch us and humiliate us... They simulate executions with a gun to the head and leave us dumped at dawn on the road or the beach, tied up with belts.

-- Berta Soler, leader of The Ladies in White on the Castro regime's repression against the peaceful female pro-democracy movement, AFP, 3/21/13

Those are the "reforms" in Cuba everyone is whoopin' and hollerin' about.
