Everytime a Cuban dies these days I cant help to think that if they had just lived a little longer, they would have outlasted the tyrant

HAVANA - Cuban dissident Manuel "Miguel" Valdes Tamayo, one of 75 activists jailed in a massive crackdown in 2003 and released a year later for health reasons, died Wednesday night, according to one of the island‘s leading activists. He was 50.

Valdes Tamayo had been in intensive care at a Havana hospital since Dec. 31. He was among dissidents rounded up in the spring of 2003 and sentenced to prison terms ranging from six to 28 years.
