The Castro Regime in Cuba agreed to sign major human rights legislation as thugs at home bashed democracy protesters in the streets of Havana.
The BBC reported:
Cuba has announced that it will sign two major UN agreements on civil and political rights and allow periodic UN monitoring of its human rights record.
Foreign Minister Felipe Perez Roque said Cuba would allow scrutiny by the UN Human Rights Council in 2009.
The council was established last year, replacing a body Havana said was manipulated by the United States.
As Mr Perez Roque spoke, government supporters mobbed dissidents who were marking International Human Rights Day.
Mr Perez Roque said Cuba would soon sign the UN International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, and a similar agreement on social, economic and cultural rights.
