According to the Cuban Commission and Human Rights and National Reconciliation, there were 6,602 documented political arrests by the Castro regime in 2012.
Note these are only the arrests that are known and thoroughly documented. There are believed to be many more.
The same organization documented 4,123 political arrests in 2011 and 2,074 political arrests in 2010.
Thus, the one fact about Raul Castro's reign is a sharp increase in repression.
More "reform" you can't believe in.
