"Nobody is in agreement…It’s that, no one says it and no one takes the risk to say it, to speak the truth. That’s what is happening. In other words, one of the foundations, of what are the regimes in the entire world, in all of history, has been fear and lies. In other words, once you are in fear that's when you don’t take a risk, where you collect yourself and don’t unite…understood? To be in fear is not to offer help to anyone because that signifies risk." -Gorki Águila Carrasco, lead singer, guitarist of the music group Porno Para Ricardo and political prisoner
"Socialist ideology, like so many others, has two main dangers. One stems from confused and incomplete readings of foreign texts, and the other from the arrogance and hidden rage of those who, in order to climb up in the world, pretend to be frantic defenders of the helpless so as to have shoulders on which to stand." --Jose Marti

This video is from Youtube.com and some one posted the following comments in reference to the film clip:

elaone (7 months ago)

es la primera vez que veo este video,tengo 28 años,mi nombre es Gisela Ruiz González,el hombre del video es Miguel Ruiz Poo,mi padre.Tal vez su mayor error fué y sigue siendo amar a FIdel y al a revolucion cubana mas que a nada.Somos diferentes pero stoy orgullosa de él!

which translates into "it is the first time I see this video, I am 28 years of age, my name is Gisela Ruiz Gonzalez and the man in the video is Miguel Ruiz Poo, my father. Maybe his greatest error was and continues to be loving Fidel and the Cuban Revolution more than anything. We are different but I am proud of him!"

She has a page on youtube.com: http://youtube.com/user/elaone which links over to http://www.elaruiz.es/ The veracity of the above comments (in its original Spanish translated here into English) has not been confirmed.
This is an interesting video showing the fear an individual (even one loyal to his master) has of the tyrant.
