Advocates Press Hillary Clinton For Support of Cuban Dissidents At Rally

There were plenty of people handing out flyers at Saturday’s rally for Hillary Clinton at Florida International University (FIU).

But, only one group sponsored a plane to fly overhead that read: “Hillary stop Castro beating Cuban women now.”

Frank Calzon is the executive director at the Center for a Free Cuba.

“The election is months away, and I think the time for her to speak out is now,” he said.

The government beatings of the group of women like the Damas de Blanco - who outwardly and peacefully oppose the Castro regime - are not  a thing of the past, Calzon said.

The Center says Clinton would make the perfect spokesperson for allowing Amnesty International and the International Committee of the Red Cross to enter the island.

Volunteers at the center handed out more than two thousand flyers before the Clinton speech at FIU.
