Another New Political Prisoner

Tuesday, January 29, 2013
Add Orlando Triana Gonzalez to a rapidly growing list of Castro's new long-term political prisoners.

On January 23rd, 2013, Cuban pro-democracy activist Orlando Triana Gonzalez, a member of the Cuban Reflection Movement (MCR), was sentenced to 2 years and 8 months in prison for his political opposition to the Castro regime.

While the prison sentence was being dictated in the Tribunal of Camajuani, numerous dissidents were arrested throughout the central province of Villa Clara, as they tried to maketheir way to the "trial" to show solidarity with Triana -- among them Librado Linares Garcia, leader of the MCR.

More "reform" you can't believe in.
