Image of the Day: A simple but pointed solitary protest in communist Cuba

With just a chair in a giant flooded pothole in Havana and a simple sign, former Cuban political prisoner Silverio Portal’s protest sends a sharp message: “We are sinking into sh*t. Freedom.”

Via CubaNet (my translation):

Former Cuban political prisoner Silverio Portal carried out a protest on Friday by sitting by himself in a huge pothole in Havana, where he denounced the horrible state of the country.

The dissident placed a chair in a flooded pothole and after sitting down, he raised up a sign that read: “We are sinking into sh*t. Freedom.”
