Cuba: Antúnez Arrested

“Former Cuban political prisoner Jorge Luis García Pérez ‘Antúnez’ and six other anti-government activists were arrested in Havana…”: Uncommon Sense has the details.

1 comment

  • Again, GV gives the world a link to false story that originated on a US Government funded website. Again we have a story that is totally inacurate in the most basic way. Why is Uncommon Sense unable to differentiate between being arrested and being detained for questioning? All you have to do is follow the links to the false story being peddled.

    And who is this hero of democracy, Antúnez’? Well it so happens this person was caught red handed last year taking money from a convicted terrorist based in the US – Santiago Alvarez, currently in prison for arms trafficking. What does the US call people who take money from terrorists to do their work? Check the Patriot Act. This guy would be in prison for a long time in the US.
