  • asombra: Let’s face it, there’s an AWFUL lot of people who will fall for BS, even blatant BS. This, of course, explains why...

Cuba: Democracy activist brutally attacked with machete by Castro State Security

The magnanimous "reforms" of Cuban dictator Raul Castro are proving to be more and more dangerous every day.

Via Capitol Hill Cubans:

Democracy Activist Suffers Machete Attack

A 30-year old democracy activist from Cuba's Christian Liberation Movement (MCL), Werlando Leyva, was brutally attacked by a Castro regime operative with a machete.

He was accused of being a "counter-revolutionary" and "gusano" (worm).

Leyva has been rushed to the hospital with multiple wounds.

Cuba's MCL was founded by pro-democracy leader Oswaldo Paya, who died last year pursuant to a mysterious accident.

International leaders, including Archbishop Desmond Tutu, former heads of state, and parliamentarians from throughout Europe and the Americas, have called for an independent investigation into Paya's death.

Paya's widow, two sons and daughter sought refuge in the U.S. this weekend, pursuant to receiving multiple death threats.
