“MY CUBA LIBRE: Bringing Fidel Castro to Justice”
George J. Fowler III, Esq.
This book is the author’s very personal story of his lifelong battle to remove the dictator from power and bring democracy to 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. My Cuba Libre attacks the status quo that has allowed Castro to remain on the world stage.
