Another Cuban Crackdown

The AP reports that the Castro regime is preparing for International Human Rights Day in its own inimitable fashion:

Cuban police have detained 29 anti-government activists in less than two weeks and seven remain jailed, including a man who called for the communist-run island to tolerate independent universities, a human rights leader said Monday.

Independent education activist Rolando Rodriguez was arrested last week after announcing that 5,000 signatures had been collected in support of autonomous universities in Cuba, said Elizardo Sanchez, head of the Havana-based Cuban Commission on Human Rights and National Reconciliation.

A regime that cannot tolerate independent libraries certainly won't allow independent universities.
