Antonio Villarreal: Banished Cuban Prisoner of Conscience arrives in the U.S.

Via Café Fuerte (my translation):

Antonio Villarreal does not hide the physical or emotional scars that mark him after seven interminable years in prison.

“What I am always asking myself is who is going to take responsibility for these injuries, even when they heal,” said Villarreal, one of the prisoners of the 75. “Prison destroyed my life.”

Villarreal traveled to Miami this past week after receiving protection under a special program from the Department of State for political prisoners sent to Spain. The program, known as SPBPP (Significant Public Benefit Parole Program), allows that those who recently arrived receive expedited work permits and permanent residency.

  1. Who’s going to take responsibility? The same people who have destroyed Cuba and countless Cuban lives. As in, NOBODY.
