The Castro regime continuous to prove it has absolutely no intention of respecting the fundamental human rights of the Cuban people.

Moreover, Yordanis Alvares Puig, an activist of the Independent and Democratic Cuba opposition group, was taken into custody to begin serving a one-year prison sentence.
Hanging a banner in his home that read: "In Cuba, there is no justice."
This was prosecuted as an "offense" to the Castro brothers. Literally, that's the "law" that was applied.
Alvares Puig has been on hunger strike since he was jailed on January 6th.
More "reform" you can't believe in.
