Including places you would never expect:

North Bergen, NJ officials back Cuban human rights activist

Commissioners’ meeting sees resolutions, ordinances, and Nobel Peace Prize hopeful

Last week, the North Bergen commissioners’ meeting reached international levels as the town passed a resolution to support a Cuban human rights activist.

On Wednesday, Mayor Nicholas Sacco and the North Bergen commissioners passed a resolution to publicly support the Nobel Peace Prize nomination of Dr. Oscar Elias Biscet, president of the Lawton Foundation for Human Rights, a non-governmental human rights organization founded in Havana, Cuba.

Biscet was expelled from the Cuban National Health System in February 1998 because of his activism against abortion. He was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2007 by President George W. Bush for his struggle for human rights.

“That’s what’s going on down there, and people don’t realize it.”– Mayor Nicholas Sacco

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban nominated Biscet for the honor, claiming that he demonstrates great perseverance in his “relentless and self-sacrificing struggle for universal human rights and freedom,” according to the resolution.

The town hopes that their support will give credibility to Biscet, who is one of 241 candidates currently under consideration by the Norwegian Nobel Committee in Oslo.

A representative of the Union of Cuban Political Prisoners was given the standard five-minute window to express his gratitude for the resolution during the public portion of the meeting.

“We really appreciate that you helped recognize it,” said Eduardo Ochoa of the Union.“He [Biscet] had been in and out of prison for many years.”

“The stories go on and on,” said Sacco in reference to the imprisonment of Cuban human rights activist.“That’s what’s going on down there, and people don’t realize it.”

“We want to give him a statue in front of the Cuban government,” said Ochoa, who described the government as “all-oppressive” and “controlled by [Fidel] Castro.”

“If we can recognize him internationally,” said Ochoa,“he will not be sent to prison every time that he opens his mouth.”

This HEROIC man must get the recognition that he deserves.

To do so, is the FIRST step in liberating the OPPRESSED people of Cuba.

The deceptacoms operating the communist propaganda machine in Cuba and abroad, seek to make this man, and the rest of the oppressed citizens of Cuba, go unnoticed.

To win this ideological battle, Dr Oscar Biscet, THE LEGEND, must be publicized and made known the WORLD OVER!

Hooray for the brave hero Doctor Biscet! Down with Castro, the murdering dictator who's held his country in chains for 50 years.
