The apologists for the regime have pointed to the release of a handful of political prisoners over the last year as a sign of softer leadership in Havana under raul castro. Never mind that many of these prisoners had either completed or were nearing completion of their unjust sentences.
Well what will they say now that reports are coming out of Havana left and right about a new wave of detentions?
It’s unclear the exact number of people we’re talking about. The reports vary but AFP is currently reporting the number at 21.
The reports say that these dissidents were planning a protest on behalf of political prisoners.
I wonder if Sting and The Police will ask their Cuban government hosts about these actions if they finally decide to play that December concert in Havana.
