Under Obama Deal, Arrests of Female Cuban Democracy Activists Septuple

Monday, September 7, 2015
The Obama-Castro deal is clearly not helping courageous female democracy activists in Cuba.

The table below shows the dramatic increase in the arrests of The Ladies in White, the renowned pro-democracy group composed of the wives, mothers and daughters of Cuban political prisoners.

From January to August 2015, the monthly arrests of these peaceful women have increased sevenfold (septupled).

It's "what change looks like" in Cuba.
