According to the report, there 1034 political prisoners in Cuba at the moment, 24 new ones in November. In its most recent report, the NGO emphasized that each month the regime “continues to harass, threaten, summon and detain thousands of people, and imprisoning and criminally prosecuting dozens of new political prisoners. The repression not only does not cease, but also continues to maintain some inhuman levels since 9/11”.
“While this happens with the argument of the ‘sovereignty’ and ‘self-determination’ of the peoples, it is evident that not only their people are not taken into account for said self-determination. In addition, Cuba has uncovered itself, already in an eschatologically evident way, as the Vladimir Putin’s biggest ally in the invasion of Ukrainea violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty and a massacre that go against those principles, while supports the savage repression that Iran is undertaking against women and against their people. Just look at the statements of Miguel Diaz Canel ‘congratulating’ Vladimir Putin in Russia for the ‘annexation of Ukrainian territories’ and supporting Putin at the United Nations, where Cuba does a reviled diplomatic job to get votes in favor of Russia and Iran against the condemnation of most countries in the world,” continued Prisoners Defenders.

However, the elites of the European left have not taken a single step to realize the deceit that we have suffered in Europe since 1959 with the false pantomime of the fight “against imperialism,” the same one that Cuba has been carrying out in Latin America and in the world since the 1960s, with the help of the USSR until the 1990s and alone and with equal force afterwards, and now with the alliance with Vladimir Putin”.
