Cuban Librarians May Be Freed; ALA Refusal to Assist May Have Helped Keep Them Invisible

Finally, there is light at the end of the tunnel for some jailed Cuban librarians the American Library Association [ALA] refuses to assist.  For details, see:
The articles do not say some are librarians, like Guillermo FariƱas, but some are

It may be possible the ALA's refusal to seriously support the librarians may have helped keep their activities as librarians invisible to the main stream media in the examples above.  If so, once again, while "censors" keeping children from inappropriate material gets the ALA's attention and press coverage, true censorship and true suppression of intellectual freedom does not.  Once again we see another black stain on the ALA's record, another reason why ALA misinformation in local communities cannot be trusted.
