Repression in Cuba Even Worse After Castro’s Death
Two years after the death of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro on November 25, 2016, pro-democracy activists in Cuba lament that little has changed for them, and what has changed has worsened.
Leaders of the Cuban counter-revolution agree that both Fidel Castro’s death and the substitution of his brother Raúl have done little for political freedom in the country.
“The situation in Cuba for dissidents remains very similar to that which we had during Fidel Castro’s life, and in some ways is even worse,” José Daniel Ferrer, the General Coordinator of one of Cuba’s largest dissident groups, the Patriotic Union of Cuba (UNPACU),” told Breitbart. “The current dictator, Miguel Díaz-Canel… takes orders directly from Raúl Castro [and] leaves clear who truly wields power.”
