The Doctor Who Became Public Enemy #1

Update from Post-coup Honduras by Robert Huish
Dr. Luther Castillo’s voice is heard across Cuba every night. From somewhere in Honduras, Dr. Castillo calls into the television program Mesa Redonda (The Roundtable), a nightly news and opinion program broadcast out of Havana. Using his cell phone, and the cell phones of others, he tells Cubans about the military coup in his homeland. He talks about how the situation is unfolding from the point of view of those who need medical care as a result of the military’s brutality.
