A day of reckoning

Today will be a day of reckoning doe Cuban author Orlando Luis Pardo Lazo and all those attending the independent launch of his book in the infamous La Cabana prison in Havana.

He has received threats for the past 72 hours, since the launch was first announced on Friday. From emails, to phone calls to his mother... Other bloggers in Cuba reported on the emails as well as the calls. The threats range from the "I am going to kick your ass" to the much more graphic and painful.

If you read any blog originating from Cuba this morning, those attending have a distinctly somber tone, the tone of someone going to a show-down with a much better gunslinger.

Stay tuned to this blog for updates as they become available, the meeting is taking place at 3pm.
