Lula Supports Castro's Internal "Blockade"

If President Lula wants to deny with facts, and not with words, that he has been transformed into the greatest international supporter of the Communist regime of Cuba - with all the grave responsibility that it implies before the Cuban people and the generous, cordial and intuitive Brazilian people, but, above all, before God - let him take clear diplomatic measures to contribute to the liberation of hundreds and perhaps thousands of Cuban political prisoners. Let him do something significant to save the lives of the political prisoners Martha Beatriz Castle and Oscar Biscet, who agonize in the Cuban jails, waiting thus the public call that has just been made by the Cuban organization United Cuba, of Miami. Let him not cross his arms before the drama of the Cuban physicist, Dr. López Linares, currently living in Brazil, who fruitlessly wrote to the Brazilian president asking for his intervention to be able to travel to Cuba to meet his little son Juan Paolo, four years of age. Let him not try to put tepid cloths on the crimes of Castro alleging the external "blockade" or the supposed "advances in the social sphere," such as health and education, that in reality are two implacable instruments of ideological, mental, political and police control of the unfortunate Cubans. Let him, in short, contribute, without euphemisms, toward the urgent liberation of Cuba.

In the meantime, we will continue taking literally as true the affirmation attributed to Mr. Lula by the communications media, during his trip to Havana, in December of 2001, to participate together along with the dictator Castro at the tenth meeting of the Forum of São Paulo (FSP), side by side with the chief Colombian drug guerrillas Rodolfo González (FARC) and Ramiro Vargas (ELN) and more than three hundred Communist leaders of the continent: "In spite of the fact that your face is already marked by wrinkles, Fidel, your soul remains clean because you never betrayed the interests of your people"; "thanks, Fidel, thanks because you continue to exist."
