Cuba: Two Young Dissidents Handed Long Prison Sentences

Sunday, August 23, 2015
Last week, the Castro regime handed two young democracy activists, Jordys Manuel Dosil Fong and Reinier Rodriguez Mendoza, long prison terms for the "crime" of "social dangerousness" (also known as "pre-criminal danger").

This draconian edict means the Castro regime believes Dosil and Rodriguez are "likely" to commit "crimes" in the future -- due to their dissident activities.

Dosil, 30, will serve a 3-year sentence, while Rodriguez, 37, a 2-year sentence.

They were both arrested pursuant to peaceful protests in Havana's Central Park.

Both are members of the Cuban Patriotic Union's (UNPACU) Havana delegation. Four other UNPACU activists remain imprisoned in Havana, without trial or charges.

The Castro regime continues to mock its deal with Obama by arresting thousands of dissidents for short-periods of time, while selectively keeping some for longer terms.

Just days after the deal, the Castro regime imprisoned renowned artist Danilo Maldonado ("El Sexto") and rapper Maikel Oksobo ("El Dkano").

Both remain imprisoned since December 25th, 2014, and January 28th, 2015, respectively.

Mum's the word from the Obama Administration or its talking heads.

This is "what change looks like" in Cuba.
