U.S. Christmas Decorations in Cuba


With the holiday decorations at the US specials interests section in Havana is a large "75" in neon, in memory of 75 political dissidents rounded up by Fidel Castro's regime last year.
"We think it's appropriate, at the holiday season, to remember these people, these people who are missing because of political repression," the spokesman [State's Richard Boucher] said.
The French story (AFP) indicates that the U.S. press had argued that the decorations were designed to provoke Castro, though there was evidently no complaint from the Cubans.
