PT Law's Senior Public Policy Advisor based Coral Gables, Florida, Dr. Andy Gomez, published an op-ed in The Miami Herald earlier this week about one of Cuba's leading dissident blogger, Ms. Yoani Sanchez.

"For years I have followed Yoani Sánchez's blog and comments on Twitter. Her writings portray a very accurate picture of the daily life of Cubans on the island. Her stance for freedom of expression has caused her many problems with Cuba's totalitarian government. Yet she has continued to express her views, openly defying the Castro brothers' regime," Dr. Gomez said.

Jason Poblete, Board Member of the Florida International University (FIU) Washington DC Alumni Association, co-hosted an event for fellow alums in town for the 54th Presidential Inauguration. The guest of honor was FIU Alum Richard Blanco, the inauguration poet.

"It was a pleasure to co-host this event with fellow FIU DC Alumni board members," Jason Poblete said. "For a political town, inagurations are one of a few exceptions to political banter, a time of renewal and reflection. Even when your from the other political party, you celebrate our country and its institutions. A few days from now, the political discourse will commence anew and both parties will need to deal with many important issues. We hope, in a bipartisan and focused manner," added Poblete.

Tuesday, 15 January 2013 15:15

Last year, the Cuban government announced a series of legal changes allowing Cubans to travel outside of Cuba without government permission. The new travel regulations went into effect yesterday.

A U.S. Department of State spokesman said yesterday the "United States welcomes any reforms that allow Cubans to depart from and return to their country freely, which is obviously a right that's provided to everyone under the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, to be able to come and go from your own country or any other country." However, the spokesman added that Cuba "i[s] still one of the most repressive places in terms of its human rights record, in terms of its restrictions on its citizens, in terms of speech, assembly, political rights, et cetera. But we welcome any liberalization and we hope that this will turn out to be one such."

POLITICO: Did the Miami Marlins Cave to Political Pressure?

PDF Print
Wednesday, 11 April 2012 11:43

PT Law's Jason Poblete responded yesterday to a question from POLITICO - a DC news organization - on recent comments by Miami Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen to Time magazine that "I love Fidel Castro":

South Florida is home to the largest Cuban-American community in the United States; many victims of Cuba's torture chambers and political prisons live there. The Cuban regime is made up of some very bad people who have done some very atrocious things and continue to do so. It was a reckless thing to say anywhere, but in Miami especially and his suspension is a lenient response. It should have been a lot more. His apology is not genuine, cannot be after the affirmative and clear statement that he made.
