  • And yet, not a peep from the multitude of Cuba bashers that haunt this site and wring their hands every time that the Cuban Government keeps an activist , (oftentimes w/much less noble goals) from leaving their home, or spending a day or two in jail… Why not ? Because there is nothing that they can say.
