The Cuban Spring

Update: Dean's take and Val respectfully finds a flaw in the argument.

I almost choked on my cafecito when browsing for news I found a piece from Oswaldo Payá on The Washington Post. Yes. The. Washington. Post. And Yes. Oswaldo. Payá.

While what Oswaldo writes is not news to us, it puts front and center in a newspaper in the U.S. their battle for social democracy such as Europe and Chile. My favorite quote of the piece:
What Cuba needs is many voices around the world that demand the freedom of political prisoners and support this path for Cuba.
You may not agree with or trust Oswaldo Payá; but he is absolutely 100% correct on what Cuba needs - voices around the world. Now go read.
