    Cuba's dissident Guillermo Farinas walks out of his home in Santa Clara, Cuba, Tuesday Dec. 14, 2010. The European Union parliament has criticized Cuba for not allowing Farinas to travel to the French city of Strasbourg to collect its biggest human rights award and the EU Parliament President Jerzy Buzek announced that he would be represented by an empty chair at the ceremony to award the Sakharov Prize for the Freedom of Thought.

    BRUSSELS -- A Cuban dissident used a video address at Wednesday's award of the EU's main human rights prize to call for the release of political prisoners in his homeland and for the government to end attacks on the opposition.

    Guillermo Farinas was not allowed by Cuba to travel to receive the Sakharov human rights prize in Strasbourg, France.
    According to the Castros dictatorship those that oppose the regime are CIA agents. It is not possible for anyone in Cuba to be unhappy with 51 years of the same rhetoric, with the mismanagement of the country, of not be allow free speech, to free travel, to choose a profession and gain the fruits of it. After all, the regime provide the so call “free” education and medical care. Based on those standards, the freest place in the world would be a model prison.

    Clearly, everyone in the European Union works for the CIA.

    Europe is moving into the backwaters of history. No one cares any more what Europeans think.

    As I've said before, Albert, your irrational and childish hate of all things non-American/European does not serve you well in intelligent debate.

    While the MSM paint a different picture of Cuba’s reality, and portray the Castros dictatorship as a regime in transition, the regime continues the repression and detainment of the Cuban dissidents. The Cuban regime speaks of changes on one hand, but acts with strong arm against human rights initiatives on the other.
