January 2016: Second Most Repressive Month in Decades #Cuba

Friday, February 5, 2016
The Cuban Commission for Human Rights (CCHR) has documented 1,414 political arrests by the Castro regime in Cuba during the month of January 2016.

This is -- by far -- the second highest monthly tally of political arrests recorded in decades.

The first?

November 2015 -- when 1,447 political arrest were documented.

In sum, the two most repressive months in decades have been under the Obama Administration's new policy.

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

Thus, despite the Obama Administration's engagement with the Castro dictatorship and increased travel to the island, repression on the island is exponentially rising.

Yet, the Obama Administration, business lobbyists and the media, keep giving the Castro regime a pass for its repressive acts.
