In January 2011, the Castro regime arrested 268 Cuban pro-democracy advocates for their peaceful opposition activities.
That's in one-month alone.
While most of these were short-term arrests, four remain in maximum security prisons awaiting "charges" and "trial."
Another four -- including the head of Cuba's Youth for Democracy Movement, Nestor Rodriguez Lobaina -- were imprisoned in December and are still awaiting "charges" and "trial."
That's eight new political prisoners in the last two-months alone.
Meanwhile, only one political prisoner was released within Cuba in all of 2010 (and another one in 2011).
More "reform" you can't believe in.
