Thursday, July 9, 2009
Upon being denied a visa by the Castro regime to enter Cuba for wanting to visit with both regime officials and dissidents, German parliamentarian and spokesman for the Social Democratic party, Markus Meckel, told Deutsche Welle:

"There are more than 200 political prisoners living in subhuman conditions. Some of them are ill and receive no medical attention. Their situation is alarming. But it's not just about the opposition, it's about an entire population in dire need of reforms for their economic development. Raul Castro regime's is taking the Cuban people towards a dead end street and not keeping his promises. As a result, Cuba is locking its own door to the future."
