During the holidays, let's continue to highlight some of the current political prisoners that the Castro brothers would like the world to forget.
Today, we remember 30-year old dissident rapper, Angel Yunier Remon, who just spent his first Christmas in a political prison.
Yunier Remon, whose stage name is "el Critico del Arte" ('The Art Critic'), was attacked with tear gas and arrested on March 21st, 2013, for his criticism of the Castro regime.
In prison -- where he is being held without charges or trial -- Yunier has been continuously beaten, contracted various diseases, denied family visits and held naked in a punishment cell.
He has undertaken several hunger strikes to protest his cruel and arbitrary imprisonment.
Demand his freedom.
