Crackdown on Cuban Civil Society's Human Rights Day Events



Deputy Department Spokesperson, Office of the Spokesperson




We deplore the Cuban government’s harsh tactics to impede Cuban civil society’s peaceful recognition of Human Rights Day.

On December 10 and 11, Cuban authorities violently detained dozens of independent Cuban academics, journalists, and civil society representatives, including members of the Ladies in White and the Patriotic Union of Cuba.

The United States looks forward to the day when every Cuban, regardless of political opinion, can express themselves freely without fear of harassment or physical violence from their government.
