During the holidays, let's highlight some of the current political prisoners that the Castro brothers would like the world to forget.
Today, we remember Sonia Garro.
Sonia Garro, a member of The Ladies in White pro-democracy movement, has been imprisoned by the Castro regime -- without trial or charges -- since March 18th, 2012.
In the wave of repression leading up to Pope Benedict XVI's trip to Cuba, Castro's secret police raider her home, shot her with rubber bullets and imprisoned her.
She has been repeatedly abused and beaten in the infamous Manto Negro women's prison.
Garro's husband, Ramón Muñoz González, was also imprisoned on that day. He is being held -- without trial or charges -- in the Combinado del Este Prison.
Demand their freedom now.
