During a joint press conference today in Havana with President Obama, Cuban dictator Raul Castro bristled at reporters’ questions about human rights and declared his country had no political prisoners:
What political prisoners? Give me a name, or names, or after this meeting is over you can give me a list of political prisoners and if we have those political prisoners they will be released before tonight ends.
In fact, prior to Obama’s arrival yesterday, Cuban authorities detained activists with the dissident group The Ladies in White. They did the same prior to Pope Francis’ visit to Cuba last September.
President Obama will supposedly meet with dissidents tomorrow after he gives a speech at Gran Teatro de La Habana Alicia Alonso.
As if the Cuban people haven’t suffered enough. Now they have to hear Obama talk.
