From my newspaper from yesterday:
CUBA RELENTS ON YOUTUBE PROTESTER, SENDS HIM TO PSYCHIATRIC HOSPITAL
Cuba has freed a man who was jailed for denouncing food shortages in a widely viewed YouTube video and sent him instead to a psychiatric hospital for three weeks, a humanitarian rights group said Wednesday.
Juan Carlos Gonzalez Marcos, known as "Panfilo", was sentenced in August to two years in prison for the video, which has been viewed more that 450,000 times since posted on April.
Instead, he has been sent to a psychiatric hospital for three weeks of treatment for alcoholism, after which he is expected to be released... "It's a corrective decision very unusual for a government known for its rigidity," Sanchez said. He said it was likely the result of "international public opinion."
...Gonzalez, was detained, tried a week later in Havana and sentenced to jail for "dangerousness," a crime listed in Cuba's penal code.
