Cuba's Stalinist regime

Represented by an empty chair draped with a Cuban flag, dissident Guillermo Fariñas was awarded the Sakharov prize -- the EU's main human rights award -- on Wednesday.

Havana's refusal to allow him to attend the award presentation in France "is the most irrefutable evidence that, unluckily, nothing has changed . .. in the neo-Stalinist regime," Fariñas said in strongly worded video message he sent to the European Parliament, which awards the prize.

For some inexplicable reason, certain liberals and progressives, including some in the White House, continue to tolerate, if not outright support, Cuba's Castro regime.
