Denounce Violence Against Cuban Women

Wednesday, June 8, 2011
The Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (ICHR) has sent a request for information to the Castro regime and urged "cautious measures" in favor of Cuban pro-democracy activist Idania Yanez Contreras.

Yanez Contreras was brutally beaten by Castro's secret police on May 25th of this year for participating in a peaceful demonstration.

The ICHR has launched an investigation into this case.

We urge the delegation of U.S. women leaders currently in Havana, led by former U.S. Rep. Jane Harman (D-CA) and Democratic strategist Donna Brazile, to please take time from their exclusive meetings with regime officials and visit with Idania Yanez Contreras.

Please feel free to contact us at capitolhillcubans@gmail.com for her information.

Of course, this meeting might result in your expulsion from Cuba by the Castro regime -- but it would be a small price to pay for denouncing brutal violence against Cuban women.
