Three to face trial in Cuba

Rene Gomez Manzano

From the Associated Press we hear of the 33 dissidents that were arrested for protesting in front of, or on the way to, the French Embassy, three are to face Anti-Government charges under "the Protection of Cuba's National Independence."

These men, along with the other 30 were detained for excercising their God given right to voice their conscience: to speak their mind. This freedom of expression is a right sacred among those in the free world. Was it not the French Voltaire who said I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it? And to think that France, of all places, denies the defense of these people trying to exercise their right to scream in a drowning sea of oppression. And what is more remarkable is that this protest was to be infront of the French Embassy. France has lost it's soul along with anyone who betrays their very own core principles.

Was it not a few days after the arrests that hippycritical Pastors for Peace came down to "help" the poor Cubans suffering from American Tyranny?

Here, delve into the irony of this image:

Regime Change in the US and not in Cuba

This young man obviously does not know about the arrests that happened a few days before he got there. He obviously doesn't know about these three heroes who are to faces charges from expressing the very same right that this man has in wearing that stupid shirt. If the words were inverted: Regime change in Cuba and not in the US, this man would have been beaten, detained, and possibly sent to prison for 20 years.

In lieu of the three to face trial in Cuba my response to Pastors of Peace, to France, to the UN and to every person living in freedom:

Give to every human being every right that you claim for yourself.
-Robert Ingersoll

No exceptions.

Obviously, this individual in the picture with the erroneous emblem on his shirt has no clue why the Cuban Exile has endured the likes of Castro for so long. Probably went to college on his parents meal ticket and thinks peace is going to a march in Cuba. Unless we face these left leaning hipocrites, the Cuban people will continue to suffer while Castro becomes wealthier.
