CSW: Religious freedom deteriorating in Cuba

Christian Solidarity Worldwide has released their report on religious freedom in Cuba, which shows increased repression on the island.

Cuba - religious freedom report  01/05/2012

Between 1 January and 1 May 2012, CSW documented 40 separate violations of religious freedom in Cuba. Many of the documented cases involved multiple victims (in one case hundreds) who were simultaneously targeted by Cuban security agencies in different parts of the country. While the number is restricted only to cases verified and documented by CSW and as such is probably far lower than the number of actual religious freedom violations, it does indicate a sharp deterioration in religious freedom on the island when compared with the total number of documented cases, 30, for all of 2011 (which was up from 2010). The numbers confirm information received from CSW sources inside Cuba who say that levels of intimidation and repression are at their highest levels since 1980.
