A true hero dies
Who was the longest- serving black political prisoner? No, it's not Nelson Mandela, it was Eusebio Penalver! This true hero died today. Most people have no clue on his bravery and his heroics:
From La Nueva Cuba:
Eusebio Penalver is the stuff of which movie heroes are made. Eusebio was the world’s longest-serving black political prisoner of the last century, and in the history of the world. He is a black Cuban, holed up and tortured in Castro's jails longer than Nelson Mandela languished in South Africa's. He was bloodied in his fight with Castro-style Communism but unbowed after 30 years in its dungeons. He scorned any "re-education" by his jailers. He knew it was his jailers who needed the education. He refused to wear the uniform of a common criminal. He knew who should wear this too. He stood defiant through almost 30 years of hell in Castro's prisons.
