Sign the petition to expel Cuba from the UN Human Rights Council

As the most violent and brutally oppressive regime in the Western Hemisphere, Cuba’s communist Castro dictatorship has no business sitting on the UN Human Rights Council. Add your name to call for their ouster.

The Center for a FREE Cuba has started this petition, and you can sign it HERE.

We condemn the UN General Assembly decision to elect Cuba’s Castro regime to be one of the 47 member states on the UN Human Rights Council, for the 2020-2022 term.

Havana spent decades at the vanguard of undermining international human rights standards. Here are two examples of Cuba’s Castro regime’s attacks on human rights in the UN Human Rights Council in the past.

On March 28, 2008 the Cuban delegation, together with the Organization of the Islamic Congress, successfully passed resolutions that turned the UN special rapporteur on freedom of expression from defending free expression to policing freedom of expression.

Less than a year later, on February 2, 2009 during the first Universal Periodic Review of China, Cuban Ambassador, Juan Antonio Fernández Palacios, recommended that China repress human rights defenders with more firmness making a mockery out of the new human rights instrument.

The Castro regime does not deserve to be on the Council undermining international human rights standards. It deserves to be prosecuted by the International Criminal Court for its own human rights violations committed while presently on the Council.
