#FreeCardet: Campaign to free Cuban prisoner of conscience Eduardo Cardet

Update: Dr. Eduardo Cardet Concepción suffering from flu and asthma

Eduardo Cardet Concepción was visited in prison on Friday, March 10, 2017 by his wife Yaimaris Vecino. She found that her husband was sick with bronchitis and asthma. Cardet is in good spirits but convinced he's going to be sentenced to three years in prison on March 20, 2017 following a political show trial on March 3, 2017. Cardet has been jailed following a brutal beating by Castro's political police in front of his family on November 30, 2017. Cardet's "crime"? Speaking critically of Fidel Castro and being the national coordinator of Cuba's Christian Liberation Movement. Amnesty International recognized him as a prisoner of conscience on January 31, 2017.

Between now and March 20th let us spread the word on this wrongly imprisoned human rights defender using the hashtags: #FreeCardet and #LiberenCardet over social media. Write your elected officials, publish a blog entry, write a letter to the editor and do what you can using nonviolent and ethical means to free him.


  1. Ya una vez US intervino en Cuba para liberar al pueblo de Cuba del Yugo Español. Y entonces salio US como los malos de la película.
    ¿Pues vamos a ver, no decían que ya los Mambises cubanos tenían la guerra ganada contra el yugo Español cuando el ejército de US intervino en Cuba?
    ¿Y ahora volvemos a ver que el pueblo de Cuba por si solo no puede liberarse de la dictadura comunista?
    En Dios confiamos.

    1. Unfortunately the Obama Administration intervened on the side of the Castro regime not the Cuban people. Cubans were very pro-American because the US had not joined with the rest of the world in exploiting Cubans. That ended in the Obama years with an explanation point that was further gutting the Cuban Adjustment Act.
