Yoani at the Police Station

As I wrote last night, Yoani Sanchez, winner of the Best Weblog in the "The Bobs", for her Generation Y blog exposing the reality of life in Cuba, as well as numerous other awards, was summoned to a local police station in Havana where she resides with her Husband and son.

Yoani and her husband were interviewed by two members of the Ministry of the Interior (secret police), who refused to sign a formal statement-the bastards want no paper trail!

They read from a script.........

"We want to advise you that you have transgressed all the limits of tolerance, with your proximity to elements of the counterrevolution".

Referring to a scheduled meeting, that will bring together Cuban bloggers from inside and outside Cuba, they informed her that, "The activity planned in the next few days, can not be realized".

They went on to say, "On our part, we will take all measures and will make the pertinent reports and accusations necesary. This activity, with the moments this Nation is living, trying to recuperate from the hurracanes, will not be permited".

BASTARDS!!

Before they asked her to leave, she called them Cowards, for not signing the statement read to her. Wow......What guts!

Thank you Biased Girl. This is how they start. There are thousands rotting away in Cuban prisons for less then what she has said.
