Spanish Senate asks for” immediate and unconditional” release of Cuban prisoners of conscience

According to El Nuevo Herald, the Spanish Senate has asked for the "immediate and unconditional" release of Cuba's prisoners of conscience and has officially condemned the death of Orlando Zapata Tamayo.

The declaration also calls on the Cuban authorities to allow representatives from the Red Cross and the United Nations to visit Cuban prisons.

Farinas acknowledged the support of the Spanish Senate, saying: "Finally, Spain, who is ultimately our motherland, is acknowledging that it must side with the victims and not the perpetrators"

The article goes on to quote Ninoska Perez, Omar Lopez Montenegro, Ramon Saul Sanchez, Lincoln Diaz-Balart and Max Lesnick. I agree the most with Ninoska's statement, which applauds the declaration, but brings light to the fact that Spain continues to keep the oppressive Cuban dictatorship afloat through its continued investments in the island.

Let's keep applying pressure!

    Wow! ¡Que viva España!

    I agree. The pressure must be increased. Spanish business hasn't been faring that well on the island either. Someone needs to remind the españolitos that Franco has been dead a long time now, no need to keep supporting oppressive g'ments to oppose the "fachistas".

    They may yet come around.
