New Book Seeks to Bring Fidel Castro to Justice
LOS ANGELES, CA (September 23, 2013) – In recent weeks Cuba was caught shipping missile parts to North Korea. One man was not surprised: George J. Fowler author of “My Cuba Libre: Bringing Fidel Castro to Justice”.
Thousands are murdered and tortured, the Cuban people suffer on a massive scale—and yet Castro walks the earth as a free man. This is more than one country’s tragedy; it is an international disgrace. Castro likes to imply that the Cuban exiles who work against him only want their “properties” back. That is not so with George Fowler; he’s much greedier. He wants all of Cuba back—free and without Castro.
Inspired by the bravery of his uncle, Alberto Fowler, who fought against Castro in the ill-fated Bay of Pigs invasion, Mr. Fowler vowed to do whatever he could to oust the dictator and obtain freedom for Cuba. As chief legal counsel for the Cuban American National Foundation, the largest and most powerful anti-Castro organization, George Fowler has dedicated his life to the cause of Cuban freedom. George Fowler’s “My Cuba Libre: Bringing Fidel Castro to Justice” on its launch as a Story Merchant Book is the very personal story of his lifelong battle to remove the dictator from power and bring democracy to his homeland.
On January 1, 1959, Fidel Castro took dictatorial control of Cuba and has ruled with an iron fist for the past five decades. Mr. Fowler became a Cuban refugee in the United States at the age of nine. Although Mr. Fowler embraced American values and reaped its opportunities, he never forgot his homeland.
Fowler exposes the monstrous actions of the Communist Party of Cuba and makes a firm case for indicting Castro for crimes against humanity. Fowler also provides a first-hand account of events like the Elián Gonzáles case, the Brothers to the Rescue shoot down, and Cuban embargo negotiations. With boldness and courage, “My Cuba Libre” attacks the status quo that has allowed Castro to remain on the world stage--and makes a powerful argument for immediate change.
“I write to raise awareness of our struggle, to convince the world to take action. Fidel Castro cannot be allowed to spend his final years in luxury and power. Whoever becomes his successor after his death will only continue his legacy of bloodshed, cruelty, and hate. We must act now to bring freedom to the people of Cuba.”
This memoir is literally ripped from the pages of history, as Fidel Castro continues his human rights violations and Cuban expatriates everywhere lament the chaos that has taken over their homeland. With the precision of a scholar and the passion of a storyteller telling his own story, Mr. Fowler is determined to set the record straight about the dictator the U.S. press has so often glorified.
