While the Obama Administration pats itself on the back for the release of 53 Cuban political prisoners, including over a dozen released prior to the December 17th announcement, new arrests continue.
Yesterday, in the town of Santa Clara, Yoel Bravo Lopez, head of the Youth Awakening Opposition Movement (MOJD), and Nestor Alfonzo Cabrera, were brutally beaten and arrested for handing out leaflets in a public park that asked for the release of Cuban political prisoners and the ratification of international human rights accords.
Also arrested were two female members of the group, Lisnelly Alfonso Cabrea and Yaime Calmenate, for handing out similar leaflets at the town's agricultural market.
