Take Action on International Human Rights Day
The human rights situation in Cuba is grim and getting worse. Women are being beaten up and detained for exercising their rights. The United Nations ignores the violence committed by agents of the Cuban government. A young girl was repeatedly knife attacked for defending these women. Opposition leaders have been murdered in actions organized by State Security and covered up. Meanwhile another prisoner of conscience is being denied water by prison officials in an effort to either kill him or break his spirit on day 29 of a hunger strike. An American and a Spaniard are held hostage and used to blackmail the United States and Spain. A cholera outbreak that threatens countless lives is downplayed by the dictatorship.
This is Cuba in 2012.
What are you willing to do about it?
Can you take two minutes of your time and demand justice, freedom and an end to the repression of human rights defenders in Cuba?
Then take action and do it:
Petition Demanding International and Transparent Investigation into the deaths of Paya and Cepero
Government of Cuba: Free Calixto Martínez Arias, and Stop Harassing Journalists and Dissidents
Protect Human Rights Defenders in the Americas
