Every great struggle for freedom has its rallying cry.
"Give me liberty or give me death."
"Remember the Alamo."
"Remember Pearl Harbor."
In Cuba today, the rallying cry for many opposed to dictatorship and tyranny, is simpler and much more personal.
"Down with Fidel."
Short and to the point.
And very, very dangerous.
Just ask Mijail Capote Aranda.
In February 2008 when on a public street in Manzanillo Capote gave his voice to what certainly many more Cubans are thinking: "Abajo Fidel!"
The Cuban secret police heard his shouts and arrested and beat him, charging him with "disrespect" and "resistance."
More than two months later, Capote was sentenced to 2 years in prison.
Down with Fidel, indeed.
