The President of the United States, Joe Biden, has called this Friday for the release of all political prisoners in Cuba who remain in jail after the wave of anti-government protests registered in July 2021 on the Caribbean island.

“In the face of oppression, these protesters courageously exercised their fundamental freedoms, including the rights to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly. The United States stands with the Cuban people as they defend their Human Rights,” Biden said in a statement issued by the White House.

The US president has added, within the framework of the celebration of Human Rights Day that is celebrated on Saturday, December 10, that from Washington they will continue to fight “for the liberation of all those who were imprisoned” during the “brutal repression”, as well as holding “Cuban officials responsible for the violence against peaceful protests.”

According to data from the NGO Prisoners Defenders, 24 new political prisoners were recorded in November, making a total of 1,034 verified, including at least 34 minors: 29 boys and five girls.
