  1. WOW WOW WOW VAL!!!!! IT’S HAPPENING BRO THIS IS THE START OF EVERYTHING NO TURNING BACK NOW IT’S GOING TO SNOW BALL. LOOK AT THEIR FACES THATS WHAT I CALL HOPE!!

    p.s. So you met my co-worker and friend Martha last night. She can’t stop talking about how nice you and Maggie are.

  2. Reporters Arrested

    While the delegates are meeting at the Assembly, fidel continues to round up journalists as they arrive to cover the event. So far six Polish journalists and one Italian report they have been arrested.

  3. This is Cuba’s Revolution beginning.

    castro cannot stop these pictures. And they are circling the entire world now, inspiring every soul on earth. They will be in every newspaper in America and every media in existence.

    Bloggers like Babalu and Stefania have held the leading torch of freedom alight.

  4. A.M. Mora y Leon:

    It might well be, it might well be. I am sure the system is so rotten that it won’t take too much to go away.

    There is another post letting us know that Fidel is boring his big CAPTIVE audience with another TV paliza… One of these days we learn he is on the TV while the government is falling apart.

  5. Wouldn’t it be nice if he goes down yakking? The Great Cuban TV set just flicks the ‘off’ switch and poof! He’s gone.

  6. BLOGGING THE CUBAN REVOLUTION

    Val Prieto has got a party and revolution going over at Babalu blog with the twin Cuban Nostalgia Festival and the Assembly for Civil Society simultaneously happening. It may sound farfetched but they are closely related. The nostalgia festival is Cuba…

  7. Congrats!!!
    the people doing this are true heros. By the way the first pic has a guy with the US flag in his t-shirt.
    castro may have a heart attack, please send him the pic :)))

  8. Thank you for the Coverage, Val!

    This is wonderful, its literally made my weekend. I’ve been reading of attempts to crack down on them before the meeting…but they failed!

    The dissidents are openly defying el barbudo!
    The Spanish Socialists are demanding an explanation from Castro as to the explusion of their diplomats. He is losing the European props.

    Viva Cuba Libre!

  9. they only can get 200 people to show up in a city of 2 million?

  10. To say these people are heroic is an understatement. They are really “walking the talk.”

    Marta Beatriz Roque Cabello has the spirit of “La Ni?a del Escambray.” Check this link out to see who she was, and to learn another group of brave Cubans who “walked the talk” against all odds – they should not be forgotten: http://www.latinamericanstudies.org/escambray.htm

  11. RickSchwag,

    I was about to write to you privately to give you an explaination about the 200 delegates and not 200 direct voters who attended the assembly. Those two hundred delagates were representing the voters that cannot vote in Cuba for an indepentend candidate, they were 200 delegates in a city of two million.

    Kerry got far less than that in my town. He got 0. No repression here, and I am in a blue state.

    You have the oportunity to meet Cubans who are opposed to cagastro in Cuba and to read ideas of those of us that are not in Cuba in this blog and elsewhere, and you instead are free to support any person of your choice, and still you do prefer the tyrant, even though he is the only responsible for the destruction of Cuba and the miseries of its people.

    So, since you don’t deserve any explaination because you talk and walk like a cagastrist agent, my message is public instead of private: asshole.

  12. Notice that asshole cannot even spell Caribbean…and he can’t count either. Typical lefto-loony-shit-for-brains.
