Odds and ends

  • La Jornada: Following the death of prisoner Orlando Zapata, Cuba’s Catholic Church calls for dialogue and calls upon the government to “take adequate measures” so such a death cannot be repeated.

  • Cuban Colada translates some of the church statement cited above, and also has more extensive quotes from Raul Castro yesterday, and a Cuban government statement on medical attention given to Orlando Zapata before his death.

  • CNN: an exchange between Senator Menendez and Secretary Clinton regarding the USAID Cuba program.

  • Remember this case of a Briton who showed up at Washington’s Folger Shakespeare Library with a 17th century book, claiming he obtained it in Cuba? He goes on trial in June in Britain and just entered a not guilty plea. AP story here.
