Long-Term Political Imprisonments on the Rise

Tuesday, January 22, 2013
In 2011, the Castro regime banished most of the 75 political prisoners it had arrested during the "Black Spring" crackdown of 2003.

Apologists of the Cuban dictatorship are still heralding this banishment, which in itself was a violation of international law.

Today, the Cuban Commission for Human Rights has released a list of 90 long-term political prisoners being currently held by the Castro regime.

Note that this doesn't include the nearly 7,000 democracy activists that were arrested for shorter-periods throughout 2012.

And these are only the ones that have been thoroughly documented.

Thus, the number of political prisoners in Cuba has actually increased -- despite the banishment -- since 2011.

More "reform" you can't believe in.
