Day of Solidarity with the Cuban People

Catholicgauze Exigencia<<¡Una Cuba Libre, Hoy!>>

May 21st was the Day of Solidarity with the Cuban People sponsored by the United States government and signed by President Bush.

Human rights in Cuba
are limited with press, labor leaders, and political activists in jail. Religious freedom is also limited with questionable freedoms finally being given to Catholic, Protestant, and Jewish groups.

Currently Cuba is on the United Nations Human Rights Council and involved in public relation campaigns like freeing their spies from American jails. The council is a joke with countries like Saudi Arabia, the People's Republic of China, and Egypt. Of course with countries like these the Cuban people's plight is ignored while the council focuses its hate on Israel and the United States.

For those interested in supporting the Cuban people there is a petition for political prisoners' freedom.
