Christian persecution spikes in Cuba

Complete story here.

Recorded violations include harassment of religious leaders, arbitrary detention, confiscation of religious property, the forced closure of churches, and restrictions on travel, movement and the distribution of religious materials.

Phoebe, CSW’s Cuba advocacy officer, told Premier News Hour: “The primary leaders of the Cuban Evangelical Alliance have received travel bans and have not been allowed to leave the country since forming this alliance in June 2019.

“There are also outspoken advocates for religious freedom and documenters, who when they’re documenting violations due to their role as ardent defenders of religious freedom, are often stopped, arrested, arbitrarily detained, due to their work in this field.”
