For more than a few years on this site, I have spoken of a man known as Antúnez — he is a Cuban former political prisoner. He is a liberal democrat — and a brave, principled, unyielding man. His wife, Iris, is his equal. And she herself now faces imprisonment. It started when she asked the Revolutionary Police to stop beating a man and take him to the hospital. The police called her a “black monkey,” among other lovely things. The sheer racism of the Cuban regime is very little known off the shores of that island. Of course, a lot of things about Cuba are not very well known.
