NOBODY IS LISTENING STILL

"Will nobody ever listen? This explosive documentary reveals the horrific nature of Castro's Cuba. Yet here we are 90 miles away, decades later and still no one listens. 80,000 have died ... even the director of this film is dead! However the DVD is available... and still nobody listens! What earthquake will it take to wake up American consciousness to the brutality that lies 90 miles away in Castro's Stalinist gulag? We only focus on a silly embargo while human beings are being tortured by a cruel dictator. It's the theater of the absurd. How can we continue to turn a blind eye? Buy or rent this... expose what is still going on! People are still tortured while our nation fills the theaters to see 'Motorcycle Diaries' about the assassin known as Che Guevara. When all is said and done how will history judge us? We remained silent for over 48 years while "nobody listened". What does that say about our allegedly "informed" society? The information is here in this bold documentary... there are no excuses. A Holocaust continues 90 miles from the United States! Dare we claim ignorance yet again!

"this documentary is an incredible piece of work.if you are familiar with cuban history,or castro's era,then you will find that this film is a true relic.unfortunately its in spanish with english subtitles.it deals with famous and not so famous political prisoners.you get to see the paranoid mentality of fidel.how he can't stand to have anybody out do him,politically,or ideologically.these ex political prisoners story is a glimpse into the disgusting way the cuban government deals with anybody out of step with socialism.you have to read a lot of books on political prisoners of cuba to truly understand what these guys are describing.armando valladares served 22 years in prisons throughout cuba the hell that he went through is unimaginable.he is just one example,just like huber matos, that rejected this system and throughout the 20 or 22 years that they seved this very same system couldn't break them.lets be open minded.castro did do some things that were very good,but his psychosis got the better of him and eventually released the animal that he is known for.power is very hard to handle,this is just one example."
