Signs of "Democracy" in Cuba

Ever since Raulito took over, there has been much balihoo that things are "better" with Raul; that he is willing to be a "softer" ruler if such a thing exists.

Apparently, one dissident thought it would be a good idea to try out just how receptive Raulito is and submitted a request to parliamient to issue amnesty to political prisoners and take down the exit permit doctrine.

This in the same week that Cuba accuses another dissident of being a "mercenary" and making up numbers. Yet they didn't deny the existence of political prisoners.
