As we previously reported, Cuban despot Fidel Castro died on Friday, giving many Cubans who struggled through his reign reason to celebrate.

However, the Cuban government, now under the leadership of Castro's brother President Raul Castro, isn't taking so kindly to the celebratory reaction — and is making sure citizens are in mourning whether they like it or not.

Following the announcement on Friday, Cuban police put a stop to Cuba's nightlife and issued an order for nine days of mourning.

Cuban Leaders Accuse U.S.A. Of Blackmail, Oppressive Regime Feels The Heat!

Filed under: PolitikSad Sad

A group of protestors in the island have launched a hunger strike in opposition of Cuba's treatment of political prisoners, leading one to starve to death and another to be hospitalized.

Although it's gotten so bad that the USA and Europe have attempted to intervene and force President Raul Castro to release political prisoners, the island nation's leaders are not pleased and have accused the outside politicians of blackmail!

In a nationally televised speech, Castro asserted:

"We will never give in to blackmail, from any country or group of countries, no matter how powerful."

He continued on to claim the members of the hunger strike are criminals being paid by enemy governments in an attempt to destabilize their country.

We think anyone who would be willing to lose their life fighting for a cause would have to truly believe in it, which throws out the conspiracy theory excuse Cuba's political leaders are clinging to!

We sincerely hope this issue is resolved before any one else suffers another day.
