Cuban dissident savagely attacked by mob, chapter 89,734,915
Ana Luisa Rubio beaten by neighbors; police do nothing
Here is a suggestion for all people-to-people Cuba tour operators: add acts of repudiation to your schedule, right in between the visit to the cigar factory and the dance lessons. So much fun for everyone, especially if you add the Hemingway touch to the event and provide lawn chairs and mojitos for every tourist. If the tour operators remind the tourists that Papa Hemingway used to watch executions in Cuba in the same way, a thrill will go up every tourist's leg, for sure, as they watch dissidents being mauled.
Tour operators need not worry about the complexity of scheduling such events. Pinpointing where and when these demonstrations of street justice will happen should not prove too difficult. These events are far from spontaneous. Someone, in some office, is planning these with the utmost care and precision. The planners will gladly give the tour operators the information in exchange for a few dollars slipped under the table. And, in good old Castrogonian fashion, both parties will be able to say: "resolví mi problema" (I solved my problem).
From Net for Cuba:
Actress, dissident and blogger Ana Luisa Rubio was accosted and beaten by a dozen of her neighbors in Havana, at her own doorstep, on the evening of September 6. Her injuries were serious enough to require medical care.
When she lodged a formal complaint with the police, two officers came to her house, took down precise information on the neighbors who were responsible for the attack (two of whom live on the same street as the victim), and then did nothing.
As all Cubans know, attacks such as this --which are directly orchestrated by the Castro regime -- occur every day in Castrogonia. Good luck finding this news story on Reuters, AP, CNN, AFP, etc.... No foreign news bureau in Cuba will ever report such events. No people-to-people tour will ever take tourists to witness these so-called acts of repudiation.
