LAS VEGAS (May 7, 2017) – The Libertarian Party of Nevada is proud to announce today’s historic launch of the Cuban Libertarian Party – José Martí in Havana. Following the Castro regime’s recent persecution of Cuban libertarians, a determined group of activists in Havana banded together in a libertarian political party named after Cuba’s founding father, who died in Cuba’s war of independence from Spain.
This chain of events began three months ago when two libertarians were arrested for the political crime of gathering in a private home to read books and discuss limited government and free markets. Ubaldo Herrera Hernandez and Manuel Velazquez Visea, associated with Mises Institute Cuba and the Benjamin Franklin Libertarian Library, were staked out by undercover plainclothes State Security agents. The secret policemen returned in the night with the National Revolutionary Police to arrest the two libertarians on the false crime of attempted assault. The two libertarians are still incarcerated at the Melena del Sur labor prison and face charges of distributing “enemy propaganda.”..
