Cuban Dissidents

NPR's David Welna reports on the increased pressure dissidents are facing in Cuba. The custody battle over Elian Gonazalez has coincided with more arrests and more harrassment for opponents of Fidel Castro's regime. In addition, many dissidents can't find work and often flee Cuba for the U.S., Spain or Canada.
