Darsi Ferrer, a Doctor, a Dissident, a Humanitarian Hero

My blog’s readers know Dr. Darsi Ferrer, the Cuban independent doctor and peaceful dissident fighting against the regime, and its medical and tourist apartheid. Darsi challenged Mr. Michael Moore by showing the real healthcare, the one reserved to ordinary Cubans. He has been victim of numerous ‘repudiation acts’ and beatings by plainclothes agents of the state security and the political police. By these and many other photos show how his work is appreciated by the Cuban people. Here he is seen delivering medicines and clothes to people living in Havana’s poorest neighborhood. This is part of the dissident’s campaign named “No to Social Exclusion”. Such a campaign has been carried out since more than one year and already involved many other neighborhoods. In these moving pics, you can see the people’s happiness, something rarely seen in Castro’s Cuba. Medicines, food and clothes distributed are donated by the exiled movements. If you want to email Darsi, contact me (stefania07@hotmail.com ).
