Numbers never lie: 1,727 & 110

1,727


1,727:
That is the number of arrests and detentions of opposition members, dissidents, and democracy activists that took place in Cuba in the first six months of this year, 2011.

110

110: That is the percentage of increase (110%) in arrests and detainment of peaceful activists on the island over the same period last year (2010).

No figures or numbers illustrate the effects of Raul Castro's so-called reforms better than these two numbers.
