Librarian imprisoned

(Scroll down.) "Rep. Lincoln Diaz-Balart, on the House floor:
Mr. Reyes Rodríguez is an opposition activist and independent librarian . . . His life is dedicated to the proposition that the men and women of Cuba must be free: free to learn, free to worship, free to elect their leaders, free to enjoy their inalienable human rights. Independent libraries in Cuba, such as the one operated by Mr. Reyes Rodríguez, provide the indispensable service of circulating truth at a time when the tyrannical regime provides only propaganda."
He's in for 25 years and his wife is getting threats from the government.
