We remember that Jose Marti died on May 19, 1895. It’s an important date for most Cubans.
How should we remember Jose Marti or live up to his ideals?
We can do two things.
First, support Cuban bloggers, dissidents & “Las Damas”. They are persecuted by the Castro dictatorship for posting their thoughts online or expressing them in public.
Second, don’t legitimize the Castro brothers by treating them like elected leaders or representatives of the Cuban people. They don’t deserve it. The Cuban people have never selected this regime. In fact, thousands have fled the regime over the years.
