While the attention of foreign news bureaus in Havana is solely focused on Alan Gross and the banishment of political prisoners to Spain, the Castro regime is seeking a five-year prison sentence for Nestor Rodriguez Lobaina, head of Cuba's Youth for Democracy Movement.
He was arrested on December 9th, 2010, and is accused of "public disorder."
Even more concerning, Rodriguez Lobaina is on the 20th day of a hunger strike and his health is dramatically deteriorating, as prison authorities have denied him water for several days.
Where's the outrage?
