Castro Sets New Record of Political Arrests

Tuesday, September 2, 2014
The Cuban Commission for Human Rights (CCHR) has documented 632 political arrests by the Castro regime during the month of August 2014.

This bring the total number of political arrests in the first eight months of this year to 7,188.

It also sets a new (recent) record in political arrests by the Castro regime.

In just eight months, these 7,188 political arrests surpass the year-long tallies recorded for 2010 (2,074 political arrests), 2011 (4,123 political arrests), 2012 (6,602 political arrests) and 2013 (6,424 political arrests).

As such, 2014 (under Raul "the reformer") is already the most repressive year in recent history.

These are only political arrests that have been thoroughly documented. Many more are suspected.

More "reform" you can't believe in.
