U.N. Working Group Calls for Imprisoned Labor Leader's Release

Friday, February 7, 2014
The U.N.'s Working Group on Arbitrary Detention ("WGAD"), part of the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, has called for the release of Cuban independent labor leader, Ulises Gonzalez Moreno.

Gonzalez Moreno was imprisoned on November 15, 2012, for his organizing activities. He was accused of "pre-criminal social dangerousness," a nefarious charge commonly handed to political prisoners.

The WGAD has labeled Gonzalez Moreno's imprisonment as "arbitrary" and called for his "immediate release."

Wonder whether "worker's champion," U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), will intervene on his behalf this weekend with the Castro regime.
