Sending out an S.O.S.

Dear Sting,

You may be interested in this news report from AFP:

HAVANA (AFP) - Cuba had 318 political prisoners at the end of the first half of 2007, 35 of whom are gravely ill, a report warned Thursday on the human rights situation in the Americas' only one-party communist state.

"Of the 318 prisoners, 105 are considered prisoners of conscience and the remaining 213 are cases mainly of false accusations or unproven charges," a report from the outlawed National Coordinator for Prisoners and Ex-Prisoners said.
Please keep these prisoners in mind as you plan your tour stop in Havana. Maybe you should ask the Cubans you are negotiating with if you could visit Dr. Oscar Elias Biscet in his cell. See what they tell you. Better yet, you should insist on seeing Biscet.
