If Cuba has reprieved 3,500 people, the US should liberate 141,000: what mass media will allow us to read such a claim?


Media around the world published the news: the Government of Cuba had decided to release 3,522 prisoners as a humanitarian gesture to the Pope’s visit to the island.The Pope will also visit US on this tour. A few days ago, more than 60 social organizations -led by Pastors for Peace- asked President Obama in Washington to follow the example of Cuba in the release of prisoners. As was expected, mass international media have not devoted almost a line to this.
Making a three simple rule, if Cuba ‘s prison population is 57,000 people , and the US 2,3 million -the biggest in the world- the White House should release 141,000 people imprisoned for achieving extent of the action taken in Havana.
