Forgive me, I’m at work and don’t have time to translate this properly. Cubanet is reporting that commie whore numero uno, Medea Benjamin says that they are not there to protest internal conditions in Cuba, only the violations at Guantanamo, although they do support Human Rights everywhere.
This piece of shit dismisses Martha Roque, who is the real deal, who risks everything to stand up to the regime in Cuba and these spoiled, self-serving whores of Satan won’t take the time to acknowledge the open letter to Sheehan? This shows just what these putas are made of. (Excuse my french, but this is a clean as I can come up with for these bitches. Sorry Val.)
La Habana, 9 ene (EFE).- La delegación pacifista encabezada por la estadounidense Cindy Sheehan no se reunirá con las “Damas de Blanco”, el colectivo de esposas de disidentes presos, ni visitará cárceles cubanas durante su actual viaje a Cuba para exigir el cierre de la prisión de la base norteamericana de Guantánamo.
“Estamos aquí como ciudadanos de Estados Unidos, sintiéndonos responsables por lo que hace nuestro Gobierno”, dijo a Efe Medea Benjamin, de la organización Global Exchange y de “Codepink (código rosa): Mujeres por la paz”, que acompaña a Sheehan en su visita a la isla.
“No estamos aquí para ver los problemas que hay dentro de Cuba sino para protestar por los abusos que se están cometiendo en Guantánamo, aunque defendemos el respeto a los derechos humanos en todo el mundo”, añadió Benjamin, quien dijo desconocer la existencia de una carta abierta de las “Damas de Blanco” dirigida a Sheehan.

UPDATE (Robert): Here’s the translation of the article, although I’m sure those of you who can’t read Spanish can pretty much figure out what the “Pinkos” are saying:
The pacifist delegation headed by Cindy Sheehan will not meet with the “Ladies In White”, the group of wives of jailed dissidents, nor will they visit Cuban prisons during their current visit to Cuba to demand the closing of the U.S. Guantanamo Naval Base.
“We are here as American citizens, feeling responsible for what our government does”, said Medea Benjamin of Global Exchange and CODEPINK: Ladies For Peace, who is accompanying Sheehan in her visit to the island.
We are not here to see the problems which exist inside of Cuba, but to protest the abuses being committed in Guantanamo, although we defend the respect for human rights throughout the world, added Benjamin, who said she wasn’t aware of the open letter sent by the Ladies in White to Sheehan.
In the open letter which was divulged in Havana on Monday, the Ladies In White, a movement which began in 2003 after the imprisonment of 75 dissidents, asked for a meeting with Cindy Sheehan and urged her to visit any Cuban prison.
Sheehan arrived on Saturday as the head of a large delegation of pacifists critical of Washington’s politics, which will march to the area around the Guantanamo base to demand the closing of the prison there as well as for the withdrawal of troops from Iraq.
The march is scheduled for Thursday, on the 5th anniversary of the prison at Guantanamo, a U.S. base in Eastern Cuba.
Sheehan is accompanied, among others, by Asif Iqbal, who was held at the Guantanamo Base prison for two and a half years, and relatives of Omar Deghayes, currently at the prison.
Four hundred people remain detained in the Guantanamo Base prison awaiting trial, according to official figures.
