The Cuban Commission on Human Rights and National Reconciliation reported lin June that by its count, there are currently at least 114 political prisoners in Cuban jails, up from 102 at the end of 2013. (Read the list of prisoners here.)
Uncommon Sense is attempting to honor these brave Cubans by sharing their names and little about their respective stories. Ever since I started this blog, I have felt it vital to remember their names, names the regime would rather have the world never know. That is the only way to fully grasp the injustices they are suffering.
Today's prisoners are Reinier Mulet Levis and Miguel Alberto Ulloa Ginar.
Activists with the Republican Party of Cuba, Mulet and Ulloa were arrested April 10, 2013, on charges of "damaging state property" after they painted anti-government slogans on state property.
More than a year later, according to the human rights commission, the case against the activists remains "pending."
Not much is available on the Internet about the two activists, but the Republican Party did report this past December that Mulet had been placed in a punishment cell at the Valle Grande prison after tried to organize a prison protest to coincide with International Human Rights Day on Dec. 10.
