A Cuban opposition family

Throughout the half-century long struggle against the dictatorship in Cuba, there have been many families who have come together to fight against the repressive tyranny of the Castro regime. It is definitely an awe-inspiring dynamic to see parents and children risk their lives for freedom and their country, as Cuba's Rodriguez Acosta family clearly illustrates.

Meet Political Prisoner(s) Osvaldo Rodriguez Acosta & His Son

Cuban democracy activist Osvaldo Rodriguez Acosta is the head of the Patriotic Alliance Movement ("Movimiento Alianza Patriótica").

In September 2012, the Castro regime's secret police stormed into his home and arrested him, along with his wife and son.

In April 2013, Rodriguez Acosta was handed a 9-year prison sentence.

Meanwhile, his son, Osvaldo Rodriguez Castillo, was handed a 7-year prison sentence and his wife, Juana Castillo, a 5-year sentence of non-confined correctional work.

Rodriguez Acosta is on the 37th day of a hunger strike, which he began on May 10th, at the notorious prison facility of Combinado del Este.

He is currently confined at a prison hospital in poor physical condition.

Below are pictures of Osvaldo Rodriguez, father and son, pursuant to attacks by the Cuban authorities.
