As Latin America's democratically-elected leaders paid homage to the Castros and sugar tycoon Alfy Fanjul negotiated investment terms with their dictatorship, over 1,050 courageous Cuban democracy activists were being arbitrarily arrested.
The Cuban Commission for Human Rights (CCHR) has documented 1,052 political arrests during the month of January 2014.
That makes January 2014 the third highest month for repression in the last decade. Last month, December 2013, was the second highest with 1,123 documented arrests.
These are only political arrests that have been thoroughly documented. Many more are suspected.
More "reform" you can't believe in.
