The past year, since Dec. 17 when President Barack Obama cut his normalization deal with the Castro dictator, have provided numerous illustrations of why the deal and Obama's promises of change for Cuba, are such folly.
Capitol Hill Cubans last month reported one of the most egregious examples: The arrest and imprisonment of two activists who had been part of the mass release political prisoners at the core of the Obama-Castro deal.
Here's the report:
Last week, the Castro regime handed a four-and-a-half year prison sentence to Cuban dissident leader, Vladimir Morera Bacallao.
Morera Bacallao, accused of "public nuisance," is currently on the 41st day of a hunger strike protesting his unjust imprisonment at El Pre penitentiary in Santa Clara.
He is a member of the opposition, Cuban Reflection Movement.
Meanwhile, Jorge Ramirez Calderon, has been handed a two-and-a-half year prison sentence. He was also accused of "public nuisance."
Ramirez Calderon, an independent labor activist, was arrested pursuant to a public protest in front of a government building in Manicaragua.
Both Morera Bacallao and Ramirez Calderon were part of the list of 53 Cuban political prisoners that were purportedly released as a result of the Obama-Castro deal on December 17th, 2014.
There hasn't been a peep of protest from the Obama Administration on this latest affront.
