A small bit of good news from Cuba?

Posted by rantingkraut on December 6, 2006

It may not quite be a thaw, but there is finally some good news from Cuba. There are reports that Raúl Castro has ordered the release of Héctor Palacios one of the 75 dissidents sent to prison in 2003. Palacios had originally been sentenced to 25 years in prison. The official reason given for the early release is the prisoner’s bad health.
