Since 1987 we have worked against the application of the death penalty and, therefore, we have suffered persecution and imprisonment. Since 2003 a kind of de facto moratorium applies in Cuba but still in force tens of motivations in the Penal Code as to issue death penalty convictions. We are now trying to push, with the help of international NGOs, for the government of Cuba to provide for the total abolition of the death penalty.
