The Cuban Observatory of Human Rights registers 477 repressive actions during the month of May

The Cuban Observatory of Human Rights (OCDH) denounced this Monday that last May there were at least 477 repressive actions in Cuba, of which 111 were arbitrary arrests and 366 other abuses.

According to an OCDH statement, among the abuses documented as repressive actions are the housing sites of activists and journalists (144), harassment, threats, lawsuits, citations, fines, physical attacks, expulsions into exile and impediments to travel abroad.

“The government maintains the repressive climate, in the midst of a supposed beginning of a thaw in relations between the United States and Cuba. May was the month with the most retentions in homes so far in 2022. More than one hundred people (116) suffered cuts in the internet service to prevent them from reporting repressive acts and limit freedom of expression, ”says the document.

This May, more than a dozen activists were prevented from leaving their homes when they tried to attend the trial of Luis Manuel Otero Alcántara and Maykel “Osorbo”, members of the San Isidro Movement, on May 30 and 31.

“This occurs without the already approved new Criminal Code, which we consider more repressive than the current one, having entered into force. We denounce that the new legislation segregates and criminalizes universally recognized rights. In this sense, no one should remain impassive in the face of this legal outrage against the Cuban people,” declared the OCDH.

One of the most recent repressive actions of the Cuban regime against citizens of the island took place this Sunday, when the independent writer and journalist María Matienzo Puerto was unable to travel to the United States to speak at the IX Summit of the Americas because the Cuban authorities they were prohibited from leaving the island.

In statements offered, María Matienzo revealed that since 10 in the morning her Internet service was interrupted. “That was already a warning that something was going to happen,” she assured.
