LADIES IN WHITE (Damas de Blanco)
C U B A: A State of Terror
Republican Candidate for the United States Senate 2012 (FL)
American citizens must denounce the beatings and imprisonment of dissidents in Cuba– including the Ladies in White (Damas de Blanco) who peacefully march to bring attention to political prisoners and persecution.
American citizens must contact President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton and demand that urgent measures be taken in diplomatic and international political circles against the Communist regime in Cuba– starting with those countries that benefit from our aid and economic trade. This is extremely important from the standpoint of fundamental human rights, rule of law and leadership, particularly considering the ever-present hostility that the U.S. faces from another Communist state, China– which is flexing its economic muscles globally.
American citizens must also demand that the United States government restrict travel from the U.S. to Cuba, as a flow of revenue to Castro’s regime.
But the communist government of Cuba has another source of cash: remittances, a form of silent economic assistance.
The U.S. Restrictions on Travel and Remittances Report, issued on January 18, 2011 included the following information:
U.S. cash remittances to Cuba account for an estimated $400 million to $800 million per year, according to the 2004 report of the Commission for Asistance to a Free Cuba, although the report also noted that some estimates were as high as $1 billion annually. According to a November 2007 GAO report no reliable data exist for cash remitted directly or indirectly from the United States to Cuba, although it is maintained that data from several sources showed that worldwide remittances to Cuba amounted to between $900 million and $1 billion.
Most of these remittances are being sent to Cuba from the United States.
President Obama has relaxed the restrictions on remittances to Cuba during his administration — and has also relaxed the restrictions on travel to Cuba. These changes will no doubt further assist the Communist government of Cuba.
Castro’s government has never been legitimate.
It never will be.
Cuba’s military communist dictatorship has led to the imprisonment and murder of thousands of innocent victims since January 1, 1959. Fidel Castro has appointed his brother Raúl as “president” — but the despotic rule continues.
The U.S. State Department lists Cuba as a state sponsor of terrorism.
It needs to also list Cuba as a State of Terror.
