Alan Gross a Jailed American in Cuba loses appeal in case vs. U.S. government

(Reuters) - A federal appeals court in Washington on Friday rejected a lawsuit filed against the U.S. government by an American contractor imprisoned in Cuba who says he was not warned about the risks of working on the communist-controlled island.
Alan Gross and his wife Judy filed the $60 million lawsuit in November 2012 for gross negligence against the U.S. government and Development Alternatives Inc, a Bethesda, Maryland, contractor.
Gross settled with DAI for undisclosed terms in 2013, and a U.S. district court rejected his claim against the government.
The appeals court panel on Friday upheld the district court’s finding that the U.S. government has sovereign immunity because damage to Gross occurred outside the country.
The lawsuit said Gross, 65, should have received better information and training for his job of increasing Internet access and the flow of communications. Gross was working for DAI under a contract with the U.S. Agency for International Development.
Gross has been jailed in Cuba since December 2009. He is serving a 15-year sentence for providing Internet gear to Jewish Cubans under a U.S. program that Cuba views as subversive.
The United States says Gross was merely helping the local population get connected as part of a democracy-building project.
Information is tightly controlled on the Caribbean island, Internet use is limited, and visitors are not allowed to carry satellite technology.
A spokeswoman for one of Gross’ lawyers declined to comment.
Because of Gross' detention, tensions have mounted in already troubled U.S.-Cuban relations.
Gross has threatened to end his life if he is not released before his next birthday in May, his wife and lawyer say.
The three-judge panel said the Supreme Court had previously held that the so-called foreign country exception “bars all claims based on any injury suffered in a foreign country, regardless of where the tortious act or omission occurred.”
The judges suggested that any sense of injustice that the law did not cover people sent to foreign countries at the behest of the United States was a "policy argument ... better directed to Congress."

From The White House: On Alan Gross

From The White House's Press Briefing with Press Secretary, Josh Earnest:

Q. Recently, there have been editorials in The New York Times about cooperation with Cuba. Is the President, in the last two years, more open to starting a dialogue with Cuba -- perhaps a prisoner exchange involving the prisoners here in the United States and Alan Gross in Cuba?

MR. EARNEST: Well, as a general matter, Jim, let me just say that the United States believes that Mr. Gross should be released immediately; that his detention is certainly not appropriate, it’s not justified, and it’s time for him to be reunited with his family here at home. He is, after all, a development worker, and it’s time for him to come home.

We have also indicated that his continued detention is an obstacle in the relationship between the United States and Cuba and certainly would interfere with any effort along the lines of what you’re talking about.

So the President has been pretty clear that it’s -- as he said in the past, that it’s worth reconsidering our policy as it relates to Cuba, reflecting, however, the significant concerns the United States retains about their human rights record, their failure to observe basic human rights, as it relates to not just the illegitimate detention of Mr. Gross, but as it relates to the basic rights to free speech and political expression of the people of Cuba. And we continue to have concerns about that.

But again, I think the bottom line here is that Cuba’s failure to release Mr. Gross is hurting the relationship between the United States and Cuba.

Q. And is the United States open to any negotiations with Cuba about Mr. Gross and whether or not the three Miami -- the three people in Miami who are being held -- in Florida, I should say, not Miami -- who are Cuban -- is there any negotiations there? Are they open to any negotiations?

MR. EARNEST: Well, Jim, I don’t have any negotiations to talk about from here other than to say that both publicly and privately the United States has been clear that Mr. Gross should be released.

The New York Times Rests Our Case

There's an old saying in Spanish: "por la boca muere el pez" ("fish die through their mouths").

Over the last two weeks, The New York Times' newest editorial writer, Ernesto Londoño, has (obsessively) written a half-dozen editorials and commentaries on U.S. policy towards Cuba.

As we've documented, these have been full of glaring contradictions, misrepresentations and omissions.

The more Londoño writes, the more desperate and shameless (and clearly uneducated) his attacks.

And today, he drove off the policy cliff.

He's penned an editorial calling for President Obama to commute the sentences of three Cuban spies (part of the "Wasp Network"), duly convicted by a federal jury in the United States, and exchange them for an American development worker, who was taken hostage by the Castro dictatorship precisely as a tool of coercion.

Like his previous editorials, which have been praised by Fidel Castro himself, today's piece is already being circulated by Cuba's embassies worldwide and the regime's state security bloggers (cyber-warriors).

After all, it's not every day that a major American newspaper echoes the ransom demands (and talking points) of a brutal, anti-American, totalitarian dictatorship. Not to mention, one considered a "state-sponsor of terrorism" by the U.S. government.

The good news is that serious policymakers know this is a highly irresponsible proposition, which would set a very dangerous precedent. It has also left quite evident the agenda and resounding inexperience of its author.

Londoño -- on behalf of The New York Times' Editorial Board -- argues that the United States should succumb to Castro's coercion, mainly for two reasons:

1. Because a unilateral and unconditional rapprochement with Castro's dictatorship merits it.

Of course, he omits that the American development worker, Alan Gross, was taken hostage just a few months after Obama's first attempt at a unilateral and unconditional rapprochement with Castro's dictatorship in 2009.

Thus, this rationale is utterly senseless (at best).

Alan Gross dice adiós a su familia

El abogado de Alan Gross, aseguró este lunes que su cliente no puede soportar mucho más tiempo la vida en prisión y que se ha despedido de su esposa y una hija.
  
Alan Gross fue arrestado en Cuba en 2009, mientras visitaba la isla y lleva tras las rejas 1705 días. Su abogado dijo en un comunicado que su cliente se "ha rendido" y le dijo que "la vida en la cárcel no es una vida digna de vivirse". Gross había dicho que su cumpleaños 65 en mayo sería el último que celebraría en La Habana  "de una manera u otra".
  
Se despidió de su esposa e hija menor durante una visita reciente. Gross, que vivía en Maryland, previamente había dicho a sus dos hijas que no lo visitaran en prisión.
  
Gross ha dejado de hacer ejercicio y su salud no es buena, dijo Gilbert, quien planea visitar a su cliente esta semana. Tiene muchos padecimientos en las caderas y ha perdido casi toda la visión del ojo derecho. Gilbert agregó que "el deterioro emocional (de Gross) ha sido severo", particularmente tras la muerte en junio de su madre, que tenía 92 años.
  
Hablaban frecuentemente por teléfono y cuando Gross estuvo nueve días en huelga de hambre en abril, fue su madre quien lo persuadió de interrumpirla. Gross había pedido autorización al gobierno cubano para regresar a Estados Unidos para el funeral de su madre, pero la solicitud fue rechazada.
  
Judy Gross, su esposa, dijo el lunes en un comunicado que nunca ha visto a su esposo en tan malas condiciones durante el tiempo que ha pasado en prisión y escribió que "su decisión de despedirse de nosotros fue muy dolorosa".
  
Gross también se ha negado a ver a funcionarios de la Oficina de Intereses de Estados Unidos en La Habana, que hace las veces de embajada porque los dos países no tienen relaciones diplomáticas formales.
  
En el momento que Gross fue arrestado trabajaba como contratista de la Agencia de Estados Unidos para el Desarrollo Internacional (USAID), que promueve la democracia en la isla. Cuba considera los programas de la USAID intentos ilegales de socavar el gobierno y Gross fue enjuiciado y sentenciado a 15 años de prisión.
  
También el lunes, el abogado de Gross dio a conocer una carta que un grupo de 300 rabinos envió al presidente Barack Obama exhortándolo a tomar medidas para asegurar la liberación de Gross, quien además de ser judío trabajaba con la pequeña comunidad judía en la isla para mejorar su acceso a internet cuando fue arrestado.

En profunda depresión, Alan Gross se niega a recibir visitas en la prisión en Cuba

Gross29

Por Wilfredo Cancio Isla
El contratista estadounidense Alan Gross, condenado a 15 años de prisión en Cuba, ha perdido la visión de su ojo derecho y se niega a recibir a la mayoría de los visitantes, a causa de su profundo estado depresivo.
“La situación de Alan es grave”, dijo el abogado Scott Gilbert en declaraciones a CaféFuerte. “Los gobiernos de Estados Unidos y Cuba tienen que resolver esta sotuación muy pronto o Alan morirá en la cárcel”.
Gilbert explicó que Gross, de 65 años, perdió ya la visión de su ojo derecho y sus caderas están en un nivel de deterioro tan avanzado que no le ha sido posible hacer ningún tipo de ejercicio en los últimos dos meses.
“Recientemente ha sufrido mucho pensando en el fallecimiento de su madre, imposibilitado de verla antes de morir o estar con su familia en ese momento de dolor”, dijo Gilbert. “Debido a su estado emocional ha dejado de recibir a la mayoría de los visitantes”.
Evelyn Gross, la madre del contratista, falleció  a los 92 años el pasado 18 de junio en Texas, víctima de cáncer. A pesar de las peticiones familiares al gobierno de Raúl Castro para que se le permitiera asistir al funeral, las autoridades cubanas rechazaron la solicitud.
ScottGilbert-display
Scott Gilbert, abogado de Gross.

El 2 de abril. el contratista inició una huelga de hambre que suspendió 11 días después a petición de su anciana madre. El ayuno tenía como propósito protestar por la falta de solución a su caso.
A finales de junio, Gilbert y Judy Gross, esposa de Alan, lo visitaron en su celda del Hospital Militar “Carlos J. Finlay”, en La Habana, donde se encuentra confinado. Durante esa visita, la familia Gross reveló que el contratista estadounidense había perdido las esperanzas de regresar a su país y tenía intenciones de poner fin a su vida.
Gilbert afirma que la situación se ha agravado y responsabilizó tanto a La Habana como a Washington por un eventual desenlace trágico del caso.
El gobierno cubano afirma que está dispuesto a buscar una “salida humanitaria” al caso, pero negociando la posibilidad de un canje que involucre a Gross y los tres agentes cubanos presos en cárceles de Estados Unidos. Washington ha rechazado la opción alegando que se trata de casos diferentes.
Negociando con Raúl Castro
Recientemente se conoció que los empresarios Elon Musk y Shervin Pishevar, dos poderosos magnates del mundo de las nuevas tecnologías y fieles partidarios del presidente Barack Obama, acompañaron al actor Sean Penn a La Habana a comienzos del pasado año con el propósito de negociar infructuosamente la liberación de Gross con las altas esferas del gobierno cubano.
Gilbert dijo que no tenía conocimiento de esa negociación ni de sus resultados.
El tema de Gross se ha convertido en la manzana de la discordia entre Cuba y Estados Unidos, imposibilitando a la administración Obama un mayor avance en las relaciones bilaterales.
Gross cumplirá cinco años de arresto en Cuba el próximo 3 de diciembre. El contratista fue detenido en un hotel habanero en vísperas de retornar a Estados Unidos, luego de facilitar tecnología para mejor acceso a internet a miembros de la comunidad judía de la isla.
Un tribunal cubano lo juzgó y condenó en marzo del 2001 bajo acusaciones de vulnerar la seguridad nacional.

Gross sufre tendencias suicidas, según denuncian su mujer y su abogado

MADRID, 25 Jun. (EUROPA PRESS) -
   El ex contratista estadounidense Alan Gross tiene tendencias suicidas, según han alertado este miércoles su mujer y su abogado en un comunicado tras visitarle en la cárcel de La Habana donde cumple una condena de 15 años por introducir equipos de comunicación por satélite en la isla caribeña.
   "Estoy muy preocupada por que Alan haga algo drástico, ahora que su madre ha muerto. Estoy muy preocupada porque cada día está más deprimido. Ambos gobiernos deben saber que está planeando acabar con su vida para acabar con esta agonía", ha dicho Judy Gross.
   Por ello, ha instado al presidente estadounidense, Barack Obama, a "hacer todo lo que esté en su mano para acabar con esta pesadilla y traer a Alan a Casa desde Cuba", según ha informado la cadena norteamericana NBC.
   "Si podemos negociar con cinco miembros de los talibán para traer a casa a un soldado estadounidense, seguro que podemos encontrar un camino a seguir para traer a casa a un ciudadano estadounidense de una prisión cubana", ha apuntado.
   De esta forma, se ha referido al caso del sargento Bowe Bergdahl, que fue liberado el pasado 31 de mayo por los talibán después de cinco años de secuestro en Afganistán a cambio de la excarcelación de cinco insurgentes que estaban en la prisión militar de Guantánamo.

Internet Foils Disinformation Operation Regarding Funeral For Mother of Alan Gross

cubaconfidential
By Chris Simmons
Cuba’s once world-class propaganda operations suffered another self-inflicted blow late yesterday, this time by expelled Spy Josefina Vidal, who continues to serve undercover as director of the US Division within Cuba’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Vidal issued a press release claiming Havana is unable to award Gross a humanitarian visa for the funeral because “…neither the Cuban penitentiary system nor the US penitentiary system provide the possibility for inmates to travel abroad, no matter the reason…”
Before crafting this poorly conceived propaganda piece, Mrs. Vidal and her DI brethren should have searched the internet, where they would have found this Associated Press story on convicted Wasp Network spy Rene Gonzalez from April 12, 2013:  Judge approves Cuban spy visit home.
Is it really possible that the DI can’t even pull off a simple disinformation mission anymore without tripping over itself? Unbelievable! Ironically, readers will also note that the AP story is proudly displayed on the website by the National Committee to Free the Five.

Alan Gross' Mother dies

(Reuters) - The mother of a U.S. aid contractor jailed in Cuba died on Wednesday, adding to the despondency of a prisoner whose case has strained U.S.-Cuba relations and prompted him to vow not to complete another year of his 15-year term, his lawyer's office said.
U.S. Agency for International Development subcontractor Alan Gross, 65, was convicted for illegally attempting to establish Internet service on the island and ended an 8-day hunger strike in April at the urging of his mother.
Evelyn Gross, 92, died in Plano, Texas, after a long battle with lung cancer, a statement from his lawyers said.
Her death is the latest blow to Gross and is likely to renew supporters' calls for his release.
"Evelyn Gross’s last wish was to see her son before she died. Cuban officials refused to give Alan a humanitarian furlough to visit his mother, despite repeated pleas and the certainty that she was dying," the statement said.
Alan Gross was arrested in 2009 while trying to establish an online network for Jews in Havana as a USAID subcontractor. It was his fifth trip to Cuba.
In 2011, a Cuban court sentenced him to 15 years in prison for illegally providing Internet equipment and service to Cuban Jewish groups under a U.S. program promoting political change that the Cuban government considers subversive.
Cuba has blamed the United States for Gross's incarceration and repeatedly offered to enter into talks without preconditions.
Previously, Cuba sought to link talks on Gross to the cases of three Cuban agents serving long prison terms in the United States for spying on Cuban exile groups in Florida. But the United States has rejected any trade of the Cuban agents for Gross, and no formal talks have taken place.
"This is a devastating blow for Alan and our family," Gross's wife, Judy Gross, said in the statement. "I am extremely worried that now Alan will give up all hope of ever coming home and do something drastic. Surely, there must be something President Obama can do to secure Alan's immediate release."

Cuba agent: US-Afghan prisoner swap a precedent

HAVANA — A Cuban intelligence agent who spent years in jail in the United States says the exchange of five Taliban detainees for a U.S. Army sergeant held captive in Afghanistan could set a precedent for a similar swap with Cuba.
Fernando Gonzalez returned to the island in February after serving 15 years behind bars.
Gonzalez said Monday that the only thing needed is political will by the Obama administration to negotiate a swap of U.S. government subcontractor Alan Gross for three Cuban agents still imprisoned in the United States.
Gross was arrested in Cuba in 2009 while working to set up hard-to-detect Internet networks on the island as part of a U.S. government development contract. He was sentenced to 15 years.

Alan Gross pretende volver este año a EEUU vivo o muerto, según su abogado

LA HABANA, 23 Abr. (Reuters/EP) -
   El contratista estadounidense Alan Gross, condenado en Cuba por vender equipos de telecomunicaciones, pretende regresar a su país de origen este año, ya sea vivo o muerto, según ha alertado este miércoles su abogado, Scott Gilbert.
   "Alan dijo inequívocamente que cumplirá 65 años el próximo 2 de mayo y que será el último cumpleaños que celebra en La Habana", ha dicho el representante legal en declaraciones realizadas a varios periodistas.
   Gilbert ha insistido en que el estado de salud de Gross es delicado. "No está bien. Cinco años de reclusión le están costando. Ha perdido parte de la visión del ojo derecho, le falta un diente y cojea por problemas en sus caderas. Ha perdido unos 50 kilos", ha relatado.
   El abogado, que está en La Habana para abordar el caso de su cliente con las autoridades cubanas, ha vuelto a exigir una mayor implicación del Gobierno de Barack Obama para solucionar la situación en la que se encuentra Gross.

CASO GROSS

   Gross fue detenido en diciembre de 2009 en La Habana cuando estaba trabajando para la USAID con el fin de facilitar el acceso a Internet a la comunidad judía en Cuba introduciendo equipos de comunicación satelital, prohibidos en la isla caribeña.
   Tras permanecer dos años en prisión preventiva, en marzo de2011 fue condenado a 15 años de cárcel por llevar a cabo "actos contra la independencia o la integridad del Estado cubano".
   Desde entonces, Estados Unidos ha solicitado insistentemente a Cuba que libere a Gross por razones humanitarias, ya que, según argumenta, se encuentra gravemente enfermo. "Creo que no sobrevivirá a esta terrible experiencia", ha dicho su mujer, Judy.
   Las autoridades cubanas han rechazado estas acusaciones, aseverando que el estado de salud del contratista estadounidense es "normal" y que "realiza regularmente intensos ejercicios físicos" para mantenerse en forma.

HUELGA DE HAMBRE

   En este contexto, Gross llevó a cabo una huelga de hambre de nueve días que, según aclaró en un comunicado difundido por Gilbert, inició "por el trato al que está sometido por los gobiernos" de Washington y La Habana.
   "Estoy ayunando para objetar las falsedades y la inacción de ambos gobiernos, no sólo en relación a su responsabilidad compartida por mi detención arbitraria, sino también por la falta de cualquier esfuerzo razonable o válido para resolver la situación", dijo.
   Además, indicó que el intento de Estados Unidos de crear, a través de su Agencia para el Desarrollo Internacional (USAID), una red social parecida a Twitter para favorecer la comunicación entre los cubanos, "ha sido la gota que colmó el vaso".
   Gross consideró que el hecho de que la USAID haya admitido la autoría de este proyecto pone en riesgo su vida, ya que, de acuerdo con fuentes citadas por la prensa estadounidense, el objetivo real de esta red social sería derrocar al Gobierno de Raúl Castro.

POSIBLE CANJE

   Las posibilidad del diálogo bilateral permanece en el aire, principalmente, porque La Habana pretende llevar a la mesa de negociaciones el caso de los cinco agentes de los servicios de Inteligencia detenidos en 1998 en el país norteamericano y condenados en 2001 por espionaje, para proponer un canje de presos.
   'Los cinco' son considerados unos héroes en Cuba porque se les atribuye la infiltración en redes terroristas cubano-estadounidenses para evitar atentados en la isla caribeña, sin embargo, en Estados Unidos son considerados espías que pretendían atentar en suelo norteamericano.
   El caso Gross puso fin a un breve periodo de distensión en las relaciones bilaterales, propiciado por la llegada a la Casa Blanca de Barack Obama, que flexibilizó el embargo comercial impuesto a la isla desde hace más de medio siglo al permitir que los cubano-estadounidenses puedan viajar libremente y enviar remesas a su país.

Alan Gross, an American imprisoned in Cuba ends hunger strike

WASHINGTON - (AP) -- An American imprisoned in Cuba for more than four years after illegally working to set up Internet access on the island suspended his hunger strike Friday after more than a week.
Alan Gross, 64, had eaten his last solid meal April 2 and said in a statement that he was fasting to protest his treatment by the U.S. and Cuban governments. In a statement released through his lawyer, Gross said he suspended his fast Friday because his 91-year-old mother asked him to stop. Gross, who lived in Maryland before his arrest, said he was suspending his "protest fast" but "there will be further protests to come."
"There will be no cause for further intense protest when both governments show more concern for human beings and less malice and derision toward each other," the statement said.
Gross was arrested in Cuba in 2009 while working in the Communist-run country to set up Internet access, which bypassed local restrictions and monitoring. At the time, Gross was working as a subcontractor for the U.S. government's U.S. Agency for International Development, which promotes democracy on the island. Cuba considers USAID's programs illegal attempts by the U.S. to undermine its government, and Gross was tried and sentenced to 15 years in prison.
Gross' hunger strike was in part prompted by an Associated Press story published last week that revealed that USAID secretly created a "Cuban Twitter" communications network to stir unrest on the island. The social media network, called ZunZuneo, was publicly launched shortly after Gross was arrested. It reached tens of thousands of subscribers before being shut down in 2012 when a government grant ended.
Gross' lawyer, Scott Gilbert, had said that learning about the ZunZuneo story was the "final straw" that prompted Gross' hunger strike.

Alan Gross, American prisoner in Cuba starts hunger strike

MIAMI — An American contractor who has been held in a Cuban prison for over four years started a hunger strike to protest what he described as the inaction of both the U.S. and Cuban governments to secure his release.
Alan Gross, who was arrested by Cuban authorities in 2009 for importing and distributing communications equipment for the Jewish community there, started the hunger strike on Thursday. His attorney said he decided to take the extreme measure after the Associated Press reported on a secret program run by the U.S. government to facilitate cellphone communication between Cubans on the island.
Gross was arrested while acting on a contract from the U.S. Agency for International Development to improve communication on the island, where Internet use is heavily restricted by the Cuban government. The program uncovered by the AP, dubbed the "Cuban Twitter" by officials who ran it from 2009 to 2012, was also run by USAID and initiated after Gross was imprisoned.
Gross, who estimates he has lost more than 110 pounds since he was imprisoned, said in a statement that he was frustrated by the continued lack of effort by the U.S. government to orchestrate his release.
"I am fasting to object to mistruths, deceptions, and inaction by both governments, not only regarding their shared responsibility for my arbitrary detention, but also because of the lack of any reasonable or valid effort to resolve this shameful ordeal," Gross said in a statement released by his attorney. "Once again, I am calling on President Obama to get personally involved in ending this stand-off so that I can return home to my wife and daughters."
Gross' attorney, Scott Gilbert, said he had not spoken directly with Gross since he started the hunger strike on Thursday but received a message at his office. Gilbert, who expects to speak with Gross this week, said he doesn't know whether the Cuban prison officials will force-feed him, a common practice when prisoners go on hunger strikes.
Gilbert said Gross has become increasingly frustrated that the U.S. government has not acted more aggressively to negotiate his release. He said USAID's decision to run the Cuban Twitter program imperiled Gross' safety and served as the last straw to start the hunger strike.
"He's extremely frustrated, more so at this point at the United States than at Cuba," said Gilbert, who speaks with Gross twice a week and has visited him in prison several times. "Hunger strikes don't end up anywhere pleasant, either through the effects of not eating or forced feedings."
Gross's case has become central to the political back-and-forth between the governments of Cuba and the U.S.
His relatives and friends have organized protests in Washington, D.C., to urge his release, and he has been visited by several members of Congress. At the same time, Cuban officials have accused the U.S. of wrongfully detaining five of their citizens, dubbed the Cuban Five. The men were convicted in federal court on espionage charges, and have become national heroes in Cuba, where their images are painted on billboards and walls throughout the island.
Cuban officials have said they would be willing to discuss Gross' release if the U.S. government considered releasing the Cuban Five. Two of the men have been released from prison and returned to Cuba.
Gilbert said that for the past year, Cuban officials have offered to negotiate Gross' case "without any preconditions."
On Thursday, White House press secretary Jay Carney said President Obama remains committed to securing Gross' release.
"His detention remains an impediment to more constructive relations between the U.S. and Cuba," Carney said.

A conversation with Judy Gross

www.jewishledger.com
Forget South Florida politics, negotiate with the Cubans and find a way to bring Alan Gross home. That's what Judy Gross told me earlier this week.
Her husband has been in jail in Cuba for more than four years - 1,521 days, to be exact. And she said she is angry and frustrated that the U.S. government doesn't do more to secure his freedom. She said:
...It's been way, way too long and our government is responsible for Alan being there and I just can't believe that they can't do anything about it. Sometimes I wonder if there's some kind of motive behind it. Not to be paranoid, but it just blows my mind still that they don't even mention Alan's name.
Gross reiterated her call to President Obama to step up efforts to free her husband. Asked about Secretary John Kerry's recent request that the Vatican help out, Gross said:
...it's really Secretary Kerry's job to free Alan, not the Pope. So instead of asking the Pope, I think Secretary Kerry should work on it.
Judy Gross also faulted the Cuban government for jailing her husband in 2009, but expressed admiration for the Cuban people.
I really love Cuba and I hope to keep going back under different circumstances. The people are so friendly...
A full transcript of our interview is below:

Tracey Eaton: How are you?

Judy Gross: I'm doing OK, just you know living life every day and trying to do the best I can.

Eaton: After your last visit to Cuba, do you see any hopeful signs? Did you learn anything new that gives you reason to be more optimistic?
Gross: You know, I was just there three weeks ago. The thing that was positive, I think, and that was different is that just coincidentally Scott (Gilbert, the Gross family lawyer) and I were there at the same time as the State Department delegation for the migration talks, so they got to meet with Alan and that's the first time, other than the Interests Section in Cuba, that's really the first time somebody from State has met with him.

So if there was anything positive I think it was very good for them to see Alan and to talk to him and to see what his daily life is like and to hear his issues and how he's feeling. It put something real to the person, to get to really see him face to face.

With Second Cuban Spy Release, Is Alan Gross Freedom in Sight?

Fernando Gonzalez Is One of 'Cuban Five'
Jewish Telegraphic Agency
A second Cuban spy of five whose release from prison is seen as critical to the freedom of Alan Gross will likely soon be in Cuba.
Fernando Gonzalez, one of the “Cuban Five” convicted of spying offenses in 2001, will be transferred to immigration lockup at the end of February to await deportation to Cuba, the Miami Herald reported Tuesday. Gonzalez was sentenced to 19 years, but appeals and good behavior reduced his sentence to 15 years.
Gross, 64, a subcontractor for the State Department on a mission to hook up Cuba’s small Jewish community to the Internet, was arrested in December 2009 as he was leaving Cuba. The Maryland resident is serving a 15-year sentence for “crimes against the state.”
Cuban authorities have made clear that his release could come in an exchange for the Cuban Five, and Gross’ family has suggested that the U.S. government should use this leverage in obtaining his freedom.
One of the Cuban Five, Rene Gonzalez, was released and is living in Cuba.
The other three are serving longer sentences, the Herald said. One is in for life because of his involvement in the Cuban Air Force’s fatal downing of four planes dropping pamphlets on the island. Four Americans were killed in the attack.

Kerry asks Vatican to help win release of American jailed in Cuba



Reuters
VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Tuesday asked the Vatican to help win the release of an American contractor who has been in jail in Cuba since 2009.

Kerry, the first Catholic U.S. secretary of state in more than 30 years, stopped at the Vatican on his way to Kuwait to hold talks with Pope Francis' top aide, Secretary of State Archbishop Pietro Parolin.

The talks mostly centered on the Middle East and efforts to bring an end to the Syrian civil war ahead of a peace conference in Geneva later this month.

"We talked also about Cuba and the need for respect for freedom of religion and freedom of, and respect for, human rights," Kerry told reporters after the meeting.

"I raised the issue of Alan Gross and his captivity, and we hope very much that there might be able to be assistance with respect to that issue," he said.

Gross was sentenced to 15 years in prison for installing Internet networks for Cuban Jews in a U.S. program Cuba considers subversive.

His arrest in late 2009 and sentencing in March 2011 stalled a brief period of detente in U.S.-Cuba relations after President Barack Obama took office and quickly loosened restrictions on travel and remittances to the island for Cuban Americans with relatives in Communist-run Cuba.

The Vatican has relatively good diplomatic relations with Cuba. Former Pope Benedict and the late Pope John Paul both made major visits there.

The position held by Parolin, who will be elevated to the rank of cardinal next month, is the second most senior in the Vatican hierarchy after the pope and its holder is sometimes called the "deputy pope".

Cancel All Talks With Cuba Until Mr. Gross is Released

Silvio Canto, Jr., AmericanThinker.com
The Allan Gross story took a strange turn today.
Former New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson made the following statement:
"Former U.N. Ambassador Bill Richardson has admitted to Newsmax that he "screwed up" in his 2011 bid to free American Alan Gross, who has been held in a Cuban prison for four years.
He spoke to the press when it would have been better for him to keep quiet, he said on Newsmax TV's "Steve Malzberg Show."..."I screwed that one up," Richardson said.
"I thought we had a deal. I went in and talked to the Cubans. The Cubans were changing their policy at the last minute."
OK so Gov Richardson thought that we had a deal!
How about this deal?
President Obama should cancel any pending talks, especially visits to Cuba by US businessmen or public officials.
He should make it very clear that everything is on hold until Mr Gross is released unconditionally.
We must make it very clear that there is a price for jailing US citizens for no reason at all.

Kerry: U.S. is “Currently Engaged” in Talks to Free Alan Gross


By Juan O. Tamayo, JTamayo@ElNuevoHerald.com

The Obama administration is “currently engaged” in behind-the-scenes discussions to win the release of U.S. government subcontractor Alan Gross, jailed in Cuba for the past four years, according to Secretary of State John Kerry.

Kerry, who engaged in another secret effort to free Gross in 2010, made the largely unnoticed remarks Tuesday at a news conference in NATO headquarters in Belgium, after he was asked about U.S. citizens detained in Cuba, Iran and North Korea.

“In the case of Mr. Gross, we’ve had any number of initiatives and outreaches over the last several years and engagement with a number of different individuals who have traveled to Cuba, met with people individually there and elsewhere,” Kerry said.

“And we are currently engaged in some discussions regarding that, which I’m not at liberty to go into in any kind of detail,” he added, declining further comment on a case that has become the key roadblock to improved U.S.-Cuba relations.

“With respect to the number of American citizens who are being held in different places …we have been engaged behind the scenes — which is often the way these issues are best managed — in every single case in order to try to secure the safety of those people, and in order ultimately to be able to secure their release,” he said.

“The bottom line is that we have raised these issues not just in Korea — North Korea, not just in Cuba, but also with respect to a number of Americans who are held in Iran,” he concluded. “And I have personally raised those names and those individuals with my counterpart as well as in other ways. And we are hopeful that in each case, at some point we will be able to win their freedom and have them rejoined with their families.”

The State Department did not immediately reply to El Nuevo Herald request for an explanation of the secretary’s remarks.

Kerry did not identify the other party or parties in the “discussions” to free Gross, 64, a Maryland development specialist man serving a 15-yerar prison sentence in Havana for delivering sophisticated communications equipment to Cuban Jews.

He was convicted of endangering the island’s national security because the equipment was paid for by the U.S. Agency for International Development as part of a pro-democracy program. The Cuban government regards the USAID programs as part of an effort to undermine and even topple its communist system.

"EN TIEMPOS DIFÍCILES" - Heberto Padilla

A aquel hombre le pidieron su tiempo

para que lo juntara al tiempo de la Historia.

Le pidieron las manos,

porque para una época difícil

nada hay mejor que un par de buenas manos.

Le pidieron los ojos

que alguna vez tuvieron lágrimas

para que contemplara el lado claro

(especialmente el lado claro de la vida)

porque para el horror basta un ojo de asombro.

Le pidieron sus labios

resecos y cuarteados para afirmar,

para erigir, con cada afirmación, un sueño

(el-alto-sueño);

le pidieron las piernas

duras y nudosas

(sus viejas piernas andariegas),

porque en tiempos difíciles

¿algo hay mejor que un par de piernas

para la construcción o la trinchera?

Le pidieron el bosque que lo nutrió de niño,

con su árbol obediente.

Le pidieron el pecho, el corazón, los hombros.

Le dijeron

que eso era estrictamente necesario.

Le explicaron después

que toda esta donación resultaria inútil.

sin entregar la lengua,

porque en tiempos difíciles

nada es tan útil para atajar el odio o la mentira.

Y finalmente le rogaron

que, por favor, echase a andar,

porque en tiempos difíciles

esta es, sin duda, la prueba decisiva.

Carta desde la carcel de Fidel Castro Ruz

“…después de todo, para mí la cárcel es un buen descanso, que sólo tiene de malo el que es obligatorio. Leo mucho y estudio mucho. Parece increíble, las horas pasan como si fuesen minutos y yo, que soy de temperamento intranquilo, me paso el día leyendo, apenas sin moverme para nada. La correspondencia llega normalmente…”

“…Como soy cocinero, de vez en cuando me entretengo preparando algún pisto. Hace poco me mandó mi hermana desde Oriente un pequeño jamón y preparé un bisté con jalea de guayaba. También preparo spaghettis de vez en cuando, de distintas formas, inventadas todas por mí; o bien tortilla de queso. ¡Ah! ¡Qué bien me quedan! por supuesto, que el repertorio no se queda ahí. Cuelo también café que me queda muy sabroso”.
“…En cuanto a fumar, en estos días pasados he estado rico: una caja de tabacos H. Upman del doctor Miró Cardona, dos cajas muy buenas de mi hermano Ramón….”.
“Me voy a cenar: spaghettis con calamares, bombones italianos de postre, café acabadito de colar y después un H. Upman #4. ¿No me envidias?”.
“…Me cuidan, me cuidan un poquito entre todos. No le hacen caso a uno, siempre estoy peleando para que no me manden nada. Cuando cojo el sol por la mañana en shorts y siento el aire de mar, me parece que estoy en una playa… ¡Me van a hacer creer que estoy de vacaciones! ¿Qué diría Carlos Marx de semejantes revolucionarios?”.

Liborio

Liborio
A la puerta de la gloria está San Pedro sentado y ve llegar a su lado a un hombre de cierta historia. No consigue hacer memoria y le pregunta con celo: ¿Quién eras allá en el suelo? Era Liborio mi nombre. Has sufrido mucho, hombre, entra, te has ganado el cielo.

Para Raul Castro

Cuando vinieron

Cuando vinieron a buscar a los comunistas, Callé: yo no soy comunista.
Cuando vinieron a buscar a los sindicalistas, Callé: yo no soy sindicalista.
Cuando vinieron a buscar a los judíos, Callé: yo no soy judío. Cuando vinieron a buscar a los católicos, Callé: yo no soy “tan católico”.
Cuando vinieron a buscarme a mí, Callé: no había quien me escuchara.

Un sitio donde los hechos y sus huellas nos conmueven o cautivan

CUBA LLORA Y EL MUNDO Y NOSOTROS NO ESCUCHAMOS

Donde esta el Mundo, donde los Democratas, donde los Liberales? El pueblo de Cuba llora y nadie escucha.
Donde estan los Green, los Socialdemocratas, los Ricos y los Pobres, los Con Voz y Sin Voz? Cuba llora y nadie escucha.
Donde estan el Jet Set, los Reyes y Principes, Patricios y Plebeyos? Cuba desesperada clama por solidaridad.
Donde Bob Dylan, donde Martin Luther King, donde Hollywood y sus estrellas? Donde la Middle Class democrata y conservadora, o acaso tambien liberal a ratos? Y Gandhi? Y el Dios de Todos?
Donde los Santos y Virgenes; los Dioses de Cristianos, Protestantes, Musulmanes, Budistas, Testigos de Jehova y Adventistas del Septimo Dia. Donde estan Ochun y todas las deidades del Panteon Yoruba que no acuden a nuestro llanto? Donde Juan Pablo II que no exige mas que Cuba se abra al Mundo y que el Mundo se abra a Cuba?
Que hacen ahora mismo Alberto de Monaco y el Principe Felipe que no los escuchamos? Donde Madonna, donde Angelina Jolie y sus adoptados around de world; o nos hara falta un Brando erguido en un Oscar por Cuba? Donde Sean Penn?
Donde esta la Aristocracia Obrera y los Obreros menos Aristocraticos, donde los Working Class que no estan junto a un pueblo que lanquidece, sufre y llora por la ignominia?
Que hacen ahora mismo Zapatero y Rajoy que no los escuchamos, y Harper y Dion, e Hillary y Obama; donde McCain que no los escuchamos? Y los muertos? Y los que estan muriendo? Y los que van a morir? Y los que se lanzan desesperados al mar?
Donde estan el minero cantabrico o el pescador de percebes gijonese? Los Canarios donde estan? A los africanos no los oimos, y a los australianos con su acento de hombres duros tampoco. Y aquellos chinos milenarios de Canton que fundaron raices eternas en la Isla? Y que de la Queen Elizabeth y los Lords y Gentlemen? Que hace ahora mismo el combativo Principe Harry que no lo escuchamos?
Donde los Rockefellers? Donde los Duponts? Donde Kate Moss? Donde el Presidente de la ONU? Y Solana donde esta? Y los Generales y Doctores? Y los Lam y los Fabelo, y los Sivio y los Fito Paez?
Y que de Canseco y Miñoso? Y de los veteranos de Bahia de Cochinos y de los balseros y de los recien llegados? Y Carlos Otero y Susana Perez? Y el Bola, y Pancho Cespedes? Y YO y TU?
Y todos nosotros que estamos aqui y alla rumiando frustaciones y resquemores, envidias y sinsabores; autoelogios y nostalgias, en tanto Louis Michel comulga con Perez Roque mientras Biscet y una NACION lanquidecen?
Donde Maceo, donde Marti; donde aquel Villena con su carga para matar bribones?
Cuba llora y clama y el Mundo NO ESCUCHA!!!
