Sara Marta Fonseca, Cuban opposition leader and Lady in White, claims political asylum in the U.S.

http://asopazco.net/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/sara4-copia-300x197.jpg

Angélica Mora is reporting in Apuntes de una Periodista that Sara Marta Fonseca, a courageous leader of the opposition in Cuba and a Lady in White, has claimed political asylum in the U.S. shortly after arriving here. According to the report, Ms. Fonseca said that she gave the news of her exile with "a mixture of tears and happiness." She went on to say that although she was sad to leave behind her brothers in the struggle for freedom in Cuba, she was happy for her children, who she was certain would soon end up in a Castro gulag if they did not leave.

Over the last several years, Sara Marta Fonseca has been a courageous human rights activist in Cuba suffering innumerable physical attacks against her person, her family, and her residence. These Castro-organized mobs have vandalized her residence, pelted them with rocks and stones, and have even thrown human feces at her home.

The video below captures one of those attacks on Marta at her home by thugs sent by Cuban State Security:

We welcome Sara Marta Fonseca to the land of freedom and we thank her for her valiant efforts against the tyranny of Cuba's apartheid dictatorship. She has more than done her share for the cause, and we know many more courageous Cubans will rise up on the island to take her place.
