The Times must be commended for its excellent article about Ricardo Bofill (Part I, Aug. 4) and his fight for human rights in his native Cuba. The Cuban Revolution has systematically destroyed the dreams of thousands and thousands who suffered through the cruel and dark years of the dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista. Many still excuse the excesses committed by Fidel Castro on his own people, or prefer to look the other way and ignore all the promises made to Cuba and the world in 1959 crushed by a totalitarian and repressive system that walked away from the democratic ideals for whom so many gave their lives.

The apartment is one floor above the residence of the local representative of the Committee for the Defense of the Revolution, the Cuban government's grass-roots vigilance network.

In response to "Castro's Revolution at 30," by Jorge G. Castaneda, Op-Ed Page, Dec. 29: While a group of distinguished intellectuals and artists that include Federico Fellini, Yves Montand and Jack Nicholson has written an open letter to Cuba's Fidel Castro requesting a public referendum, similar to the one that recently took place in Chile, Castaneda laments a revolution that's gone out of fashion. It's simply cruel and outrageous to read that "the accounts of a Cuban gulag were greatly exaggerated."
