BREAKING NEWS!  A third Cuban libertarian activist was arrested by State Security, the political police in Cuba.  Yesterday the Benjamin Franklin Libertarian Library, a functional library run by libertarian volunteers, held its first conference yesterday in Havana.  Three days before the conference, last Tuesday, State Security threatened every member of the Benjamin Franklin Libertarian Library, and also threatened every member of Mises Cuba and known libertarians, not to attend this conference.  Discussion of free markets and limited governments are a direct threat to the Castro's neo-Stalinist regime.
