Amnesty International remembers and honors Pablo Pacheco Avila

Cuban prisoner of conscience Pablo Pacheco Avila in 2009 won the Amnesty International special award for journalism under threat. He was arrested during the Cuban Black Spring of March 2003. Below is a brief Amnesty International video about Pablo.

As I write these words in a small Church in Cuba the Ladies in White and a group of Cuban bloggers are gathered to pay their respects for Cuba's prisoners of conscience and outside State Security and a mob of government agents have surrounded the Church.

They are in my thoughts and prayers
