Cuba: Libertarian activists sent to the gulag

Source: Libertarian Party of Nevada

“The civil rights and human rights case regarding the two jailed Cuban libertarian activists just took a dark turn. As of this afternoon, Mises Cuba reports that Ubaldo Herrera Hernandez and Manuel Velazquez Visea are incarcerated in Cuba’s infamous Melena II prison. Various human rights groups have documented conditions at Melena II, and it’s Cuba’s equivalent of the Gulag in Soviet Russia and the labor camps in North Korea. Four Libertarian state parties (Nevada, New Hampshire, Oklahoma, and Indiana) and the Libertarian Party of Spain (P-LIB) have published denunciations of the Cuban government and the Communist Party of Cuba, and these parties are calling for the immediate and safe release of the political prisoners.” [hat tip — Zach Foster] (02/22/17)
