This heartbreaking lament for a son denied medical treatment in Castro’s gulag makes obscene any gesture toward normalizing relations with the Castro regime.
Update: Her plea in English, translation by our friend Jorge Luis Hernandez:
“My son is dying,,,,,,,My son is dying,,,,,,don’t let my little son die…..Mammy….. he says, Mammy, I don’t have on me any more places to put an injection…. Mammy!…. He is a cadaver…..I plead for justice…for justice to be made…..because my son is going to die there, and before my son dies, I ask all this government here, this government that does not deserve anything, to issue a parole to all the sick ones, because there are many who are sick, a lot of them….they say that there are none, that there are no political prisoners of conscience, that there are none, that all of them are common prisoners,,,,that’s a huge lie my God !…… let a representative of Human Rights come here,,,,,and let them come to the jails, and let them come to the hospitals….and let them see the way they are…..they are dying……not for lack of things that one bring to them, because one bring to them whatever we can ….but the medical assistance, they have to give it to them the way it should be, they have to give it because it is a human being…..it is a human being and not an animal….they have my son in a “hole” as they say of the way they have the spies ( in the US)…. they are the ones that have then in a “hole”, in the deep part of the hospital is where they have them ,where they are not permitted to see anybody, and not to talk to anybody so no one can communicate with him or nothing…I was allowed to see him for only twenty minutes and they didn’t let me talk anything with him…this is criminal,,,, it’s criminal what they are doing…..my son, who always has been strong as an oak, my son went in there strong, big and in great shape, and now he is week, skinny, he is a skeleton….I implore you, all the community outside Cuba, to do something for him….to the President Barack Obama, to the European Union, to all the congresspersons there….this government here what is doing is finishing them, they are been finished slowly…..You hear me…I am a mother who is suffering since my son went to prison…he entered very well and healthy and now look at the way my son is…..My son is dying…… my son is dying….don’t let my little son die….the little son of my soul……don’t die.
This is taking place 90 miles from our border:
There is no honorable way to hold talks with this criminal regime; no way to shake these hands without acquiring blood stains.
Rembember Fidel’s words from a 1959 speech, “I tell the mothers that they will never, because of us, have to weep”.
The Castro brothers; Fidel and Raul, are monsters. Yes, with capital letters–let them own these bloodied infamous names, that they will be etched on hells door for eternity.
