The Czechs are we
SOLIDARITY: Waving a Cuban flag Czech Foreign Minister Cyril Svoboda, in a mock Cuban jail cell in Prague's Wenceslas Square, protested in March the arrest of dissidents in Cuba.
Take it from a people that have lived under the subjugation of the evil Soviet Empire, and now enjoy the freedom that democracy brings. The Czechs understand completely what it means to live under oppression and how to get from under it; they understand the Cuban plight. No other country in Central Europe or elsewhere in the world is trumpeting and expressing their solidarity with Cuban dissidents as loudly as the Czechs, they are quickly becoming a thorn in the Cuban regime’s side. Next time you plan a vacation, forget Mexico, forget the Bahamas, forget Canada, and instead go to the Czech Republic.
After this intro, I take you to the following article printed in the Miami Herald [here].
