Free Yosvani Melchor

Thursday, January 9, 2014
Yosvani Melchor is the son of Cuban democracy activist Rosa Maria Rodriguez, a leader of Oswaldo Paya's Christian Liberation Movement (MCL).

Yosvani, who is mentally handicapped, was arrested in June 2010 and sentenced to 12-years in prison in retribution for his mother's opposition activities.

More specifically, for her unwillingness to become an informant for Castro's secret police.

Yosvani's mother has been told that as long as she continues her dissident activities, her son will not be released.

This week, Rosa Maria's home was surrounded by the security officials, who physically prevented her from staging a peaceful protest for her son's release.

More "reform" you can't believe in.
