It would be great if we could see it

The U.S. Interests Section in Havana organized a videoconference between a group of Cuban dissidents and five of the six Cuban American members of Congress on August 2. Cubanet’s report contains no direct quotes and not much detail, but there’s this passage on TV Marti:

“Another point that was debated was the broadcasts of Television Marti to the island. On this point a consensus was reached regarding the value of these broadcasts. It was specified that work should be done so that the signal may fulfill its purpose. The engineer [Felix] Bonne called for a search for viable technological solutions that would bring this effort to a good end.”

Look at the grief Sean Penn gets just from visiting Chavez in Venezuela in a transparent way - on a fact finding trip and keeping his mouth pretty much shut. Now imagine if he were instead to be secretly telelinked directly through the Venezuelan Embassy with the Congresss of Venezuela for a session about how they could help achieve Penn's objectives for the liberation of the US homeland? What is an average Cuban to think about this? Do these folks really expect to be taken seriously by anyone on the island?
