ASKING PRESIDENT OBAMA TO HELP STOP BEATINGS OF CUBAN DISSIDENT IN RAUL CASTRO’S CUSTODY.
The Center for a Free Cuba is sending these two videos of a Cuban demonstrator carrying an American flag and chanting “human rights for Cubans” to President Barack Obama in the hope that he will call on General Raul Castro to stop the police beatings of this Cuban peaceful demonstrator whose only crime was to yesterday demonstrate peacefully for the type of change Mr. Obama promised to the Cuban people when he visited the island. Members of Congress who have met with Raul Castro and claim that things are different in Cuba should have the decency to call Cuba’s ambassador in Washington, Jose Ramon Cabanas Rodriguez [202- 797- 8518] to ask what happened to him, where is he being held, when his family will be allowed to see him, what are the charges he is to face and when will he appear in court. Human Rights organizations should call on Mr. Obama to take a personal interest on his plight and that of his family. Dissidents and their families are fired from their jobs and their children are expelled from school. Those desiring to reach to Mr. Obama need to send respectfully worded appeals to: http://barackobama.com/contact/
