On March 14th, the Executive Committee of the Libertarian Party of Miami-Dade County condemned the communist dictatorship in Cuba over the imprisonment of of two libertarian dissidents on the island nation.
Ubaldo Herrera Hernandez and Manuel Velasquez, working with the libertarian think-tank Mises Institute - Cuba, were both arrested over their promotion of free market ideas on February 2nd.
Since then, Libertarian groups throughout the world, from Nevada to Russia have condemned severely the Castro regime, which never ceases to break records of human rights abuses.
The resolution, written and sponsored by Supervisor Dennis Misigoy, who also serves as Chairman of the Enclave at Black Point Community Development District, also asks all businesses to boycott Cuba as long as these political prisoners are still being subjected to the unfair and outrageous treatment of the Cuban dictatorship.
The Libertarian Party of Miami-Dade County has been in talks with leaders from Mises Institute - Cuba for several days and will now be spearheading efforts to protect libertarian dissidents in Cuba. One of the first steps will be to work with the Libertarian Party of Florida to purchase ads throughout Cuban-American newspapers to make our statement publicized and to ask all business owners in Miami to stop all dealings with the island nation immediately.
The next step will be an effort in which many Libertarian groups throughout the State will be participating in. We will be fundraising to help libertarian dissidents finance cell phone communication with operatives in Miami.
While the Libertarian Party does not believe the United States government should be involved in the internal affairs of another country, we strongly believe in the right of individuals to pursue libertarian agendas throughout the world, and the Libertarian Party will now serve as a new organism to help bring democracy to Cuba.
Ubaldo and Manuel, hang on. We're on our way.
