Cuba Begins Allowing For Basic Human Decency For Political Prisoners

May 23, 2010

Cuba (ChattahBox) – After talks with the Roman Catholic Church, Raul Castro has changed the rules to allow for basic human rights of prisoners locked up on charges of political crimes.

Under the new regime, prisoners will be allowed to be in prisons near their homes, go to hospitals when ill, and many human rights activists hope further talks will allow for abuses and mistreatment to end as well.

This is good news to Guillermo Farinas, who has been on a hunger strike for three months in hopes of bringing resolution.

Another prisoner died in February on his own hunger strike.
