Cuba's revolving door for political prisoners

Setting the record straight through the story of one of Cuba's most prominent political prisoners: Dr. Oscar Elias Biscet

We invite you to join us on Wednesday, September 22nd from 12:00pm to 1:00pm in 2253 Rayburn as we host the 14th annual Cuba Day on the Hill. This year we will be accompanied by filmmaker Jordan Allott. Jordan directed the new documentary Oscar's Cuba. It is an unflinching and honest look at Dr. Oscar Elias Biscet who has been imprisoned since 2003 for his beliefs. Jordan will also lead a discussion and answer any questions on Dr. Biscet and the larger context of all those imprisoned in Castro's gulag. As we hear voices calling for a softer gentler relationship with Cuba, we must not be blind to the reality that Dr. Biscet and others face day-in and day-out. Cuba not only imprisons those who simply disagree with the regime, but they force into exile those they release in order manipulate public opinion.
