Mary O’Grady talks about Sonia Garro

Wall Street Journal editor Mary Anastasia O’Grady has once again spoken out on the human rights violations against peaceful dissidents in Cuba, taking the situation to the American and international audience.  This time, she has highlighted the case of Sonia Garro, Lady in White who has been arbitrarily imprisoned, alongside her husband Ramon Munoz, for more than a year.

In the WSJ’s Opinion Video titled “Easter in a Dungeon”, O’ Grady chats with James Freeman answering his question “is the communist regime of Cuba opening up?” with concrete examples proving that they are, in fact, far from it.

“Sonia Garro and her husband are still in jail, spending their second Easter in jail,” says O’Grady, “and have never been charged with a crime, [they are] in a complete judicial limbo”.

The journalist goes on to describe the conditions in a Cuban prison for human rights activists and highlights the importance of international solidarity with these everyday citizens who risk it all to achieve freedom.
