Political arrests in Cuba top 7,000 for 2014, breaking record set by dictator Raul Castro for all of 2013

The media, the "Cuba Experts," and the apartheid Castro regime's lobbyists here in the U.S. keep telling us that Cuban dictator Raul Castro is a reformed dictator. Well, here is a taste of those reforms.

According to the Cuban Commission for Human Rights, there were 632 political arrests on the island documented in August of 2014. This brings the total number of politically motivated arrests by Cuban State Security this year to 7,182. In comparison, the total political arrests documented by the organization in 2013 were 6,424.
