They "could no longer live in Cuba"

Diario La Prensa, Spanish language Honduran newspaper, reports that approximately 150 Cubans have arrived in Honduras escaping castro's prison island. Four women and 13 men where the last to arrive on the 20th, taking them 12 days in open seas due to bad weather.

A married couple, Rodyn Brito and Eslen González said their objective was to get to the US, as "they could no longer live in Cuba."

Would you be willing to risk your life and spend 12 days in open seas in bad weather to find freedom? What sort of country would cause such desperation? Think about that next time you read some pro-castro propaganda in the papers.
