Remembering Danny Lopez de Moya

Monday, December 31, 2012
Today, we continue highlighting some of Cuba's newest political prisoners, which the Castro regime would like the world to forget.

Danny Lopez de Moya is a member of the Cuban Patriotic Union (UNPACU) in eastern Cuba.

UNPACU, led by former Cuban political prisoner Jose Daniel Ferrer, has become one of the leading opposition movements on the island.

Thus, its members have been subject to constant repression.

Lopez de Moya was arrested on February 26, 2012 for wearing a t-shirt in public that read "Boitel, Zapata, Wilman Viven y UNPACU" (referring to three prominent political priosners killed by the Castro regime).

In April, he was sentenced to one-and-a-half years in prison for "disobedience."

He will not be forgotten.
