The abuse of the Castro regime against Cuban doctors who are abroad has no limits. In addition to the persecution, slavery, threats, violence, harassment and family separation they suffer, it also forces them to pay homage to the former head of the Communist Party, Raúl Castro, on his birthday, this June 3.
Professionals are obliged to promote a campaign with “great intensity” from the destinations where they are. They will provide “services” online with the hashtags #RaúlForever #CubaPorLaVida and #CubaCoopera. Interactivity will be monitored through the TalkWalker site with the promise that those who achieve “high status” will receive “recognition.” This is how the organization Prisoners Defenders (PD) denounces it, through its Twitter account, with the disclosure of the statement delivered from Havana to the doctors by telephone.
El estado de #esclavitud de los médicos de #Cuba en el exterior se hace patente en cada detalle.— Prisoners Defenders (@CubanDefenders) June 2, 2022
Ahora les obligan a rendir pleitesía al cumpleaños de Raúl Castro, so pena de que su interactividad con la campaña será monitoreada personalizadamente.

A wicked instruction
The order of the Miguel Díaz-Canel dictatorship for Raúl’s 91st birthday must also be followed by the delegation that is in Venezuela. In this country, its members must mention the @cubacooperaven account to keep a record of those who complied with the instruction.
The regime will measure the loyalty of doctors abroad -it is obvious-, but it will also try to show them that it controls them miles away from them and will prevent defections, such as that of the 17 members it detained along with Nicolás Maduro’s security forces, when They intended to flee to Colombia.
These professionals are imprisoned and will be transferred to Cuba. Upon arrival, a judicial process for “treason” awaits them.
Miguel Ángel Ruano, spokesman for the independent organization Free Cuban Medical Guild, asserts that Article 135 of the Criminal Code establishes that “the official or employee in charge of carrying out a mission in a foreign country who abandons it, or, once it has been completed, or is required in Any time that he returns, he refuses, expressly or tacitly, to do so, he incurs a sanction of deprivation of liberty from three to eight years.”
A sad reality
Castroism can no longer hide the frustration of its medical delegations. PD statistics reveal that more than 800,000 ‘missions’ professionals have defected. In turn, to date more than 40,000 doctors have been sanctioned, approximately half of whom have minor children in Cuba whom they will not be able to see for eight years. This arbitrariness corresponds to Law 1312 on Migration, which prohibits them from entering the country during that period. So are between 5,000 and 10,000 Cuban fathers and mothers. Testimonials abound.

The second district judge in matters of civil, administrative and labor amparo of the State of Puebla, in Mexico, José Luis Evaristo Villegas, has just admitted a claim for amparo against any agreement, agreement or contract of the government of Andrés Manuel López Obrador that allows Cuban doctors to work in the Aztec country.
The appeal, filed by lawyer Fernando Castillo, points out that no one has verified the quality of these professionals, or verified that they have approved their studies.
The judge in the case decided not to grant the provisional suspension. For this, he alleged “uncertain acts”. However, now the complaint is in the Collegiate Court in Administrative Matters of the State of Puebla. In two weeks the decision will be made on whether Mexico will join the list of countries that benefit from the “modern slavery” of Castroism that the United Nations calls “forced labor.”
