So you want to go Cuba? Think about this story as you make your plans.
Cuban opposition activist Reinaldo Millet Guerrero was sentenced to 18 months in prison after he was attacked by a Castro goon squad that objected to a sign he had put on his house declaring, "Zapata and Boitel Live!'
Millet, 40, a member of the Pedro Luis Boitel Civic Resistance Front in Moa in eastern Cuba, was tried, convicted and sentenced June 13 for a charge of "disrespect."
Two days earlier, police beat Millet to force him to remove the signs, which honored political prisoners Pedro Luis Boitel and Orlando Zapata Tamayo who died after lengthy hunger strikes.
