You promise CHANGE! Well if you really mean it, and you do have good intentions, I challenge you to prove it. Demand from the Cuban government that all the political dissidents be set free effective immediately, particularly our afroCuban brother, Oscar Elias Biscet. Dr. Biscet is imprisoned for championing the cause for human rights. He never did anything wrong or illegal but his defense of human rights is considered by the dictatorship counterrevolutionary. There are many of us who doubt you, prove us wrong with a good deed, but make this a dermand that must be met, not just a simple request.
Request that the Ladies in White be protected and not be abused as they are during their march.
Democratic elections and freedom of speech and the press!

Be a HERO Mr President, not just another politician with an agenda. Please do not end the Embargo till this is met!
