Yesterday Congressman Licoln Diaz-Balart (R-FL) wished Cuban political prisoner Dr. Oscar Elias Biscet freedom on Dr Biscet’s birthday,
The world, and especially the press and the media in the United States, continue to treat the political prisoners in the gulags of the Cuban dictatorship as “non-persons”.
The most well-known and respected political prisoner in Cuba is Dr. Oscar Elias Biscet. He has been in the gulags of the Castros for a decade due to his peaceful pro-democracy work inside that enslaved island. Dr. Biscet is the “Mandela of Cuba.”
Today is his 49th birthday. I wish him Godspeed and freedom. And freedom for Cuba.
To the press, I ask: How long do the heroes of Cuba have to suffer before you acknowledge their existence?
