Cuban dissidents have collected over one hundred documented cases of persecution on non-government-employed Cubans who transmit news in various ways.

This information will be presented to the Inter-American Press Association. Let’s see what happens as a result. Don’t hold your breath waiting for Castro, Inc. to change its behavior or for the rest of the world to give a hoot.

  1. Yes, the “revolution” is losing its coolness, which it is unlikely to recover, so it’s falling back on hardcore repression. In part, it may be anticipating potential weakening once Castro II finally dies, which cannot be too far away, and it wants to get a jump on that ahead of time.
