Adding to Record-Breaking Year, More Political Arrests in Cuba

Sunday, October 5, 2014
The Cuban Commission for Human Rights (CCHR) has documented 411 political arrests by the Castro regime during the month of September 2014.

This bring the total number of political arrests during the first nine months of this year to 7,599.

In just nine months, these 7,599 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 clearly 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.
