During Castro’s rule, thousands of Cubans were incarcerated in abysmal prisons, thousands more were harassed and intimidated, and entire generations were denied basic political freedoms. Cuba made improvements in health and education, though many of these gains were undermined by extended periods of economic hardship and by repressive policies.
“As other countries in the region turned away from authoritarian rule, only Fidel Castro’s Cuba continued to repress virtually all civil and political rights,” said José Miguel Vivanco, Americas director at Human Rights Watch. “Castro’s draconian rule and the harsh punishments he meted out to dissidents kept his repressive system rooted firmly in place for decades.” (more here).
Those who managed to escape, fled to Florida.

By: Daily Caller, February 25, 2020:
Following Independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ comments Sunday defending Fidel Castro, the city of Miami’s elected officials responded by officially sponsoring an anti-communist concert scheduled for April.
Sanders said during a “60 Minutes” interview that aired Sunday night on CBS that he opposed “the authoritarian nature” of the Cuban regime, but that it was “unfair to simply say everything is bad.” (RELATED: Bernie Sanders Doubles Down On Castro Comments By Defending Communist China)
An ‘anti-communist concert’ is coming to Miami. The city’s government is a sponsor.
Miami Mayor Francis Suarez and Commissioner Joe Carollo don’t agree on much these days, but they were in lockstep Monday in promoting an “anti-communist concert” set for April 11 at the James L….
Additional money raised through the concert will go to the nonprofit Cuban Democratic Directorate, which aid political prisoners in Cuba and their families, the Miami Herald reported.
