EU must remain firm against Cuba: dissident Farinas

15th December 2010, Comments 0 comments

Cuban dissident Guillermo Farinas urged the EU to stand firm against Cuba's "cruel" regime, which barred him from travelling to France to receive a top human rights prize on Wednesday.

"My biggest hopes is that you will not let yourselves be fooled by the siren song of a cruel regime of savage communism," Farinas said in a message to the European Parliament obtained by AFP ahead of a ceremony to award him the Sakharov prize in his absence.
