The misogynistic Castro dictatorship abuses women on a daily basis in Cuba. But don’t hold your breath waiting for the Squad or any other leftists to come to the defense of Cuba’s battered women.
More than 100 women were arbitrarily arrested in Cuba in February
More than 100 women were arrested in an arbitrary fashion during the month of February in Cuba, according to a report from the Cuban Observatory of Human Rights (CCDH). The numbers indicate women are the most affected by this type of human rights violation on the island.
The regime committed at least “416 acts of repression against the population in February, of which 149 were detentions and 267 were other types of abuses,” the organization said.
Among the abuses committed were “the siege of homes (87), harassment (69), fines (36), citations (35), and threats (29), among others.”
The Cuban Observatory of Human Rights points out that its “observers . . . each time find more citizen complaints about civil rights violations, which show the situation has worsened and the people are losing their fear of speaking out.”
According to the report, “the repressive pattern” of previous months after the protests of July 11, 2021 continues on the island.
“With the tense economic situation, the Cuban government continues investing huge amounts of resources to repression against activists with its focus on the new criminal code that imposes longer sentences and which we have denounced in Brussels last week during meetings with more than 20 politicians and officials,” the report concludes.
