Urgent Action: Artist Opposing Censorship at Risk (Cuba: UA 33.20)March 25, 2020
Cuban authorities imprisoned artist Luis Manuel Otero Alcántara for 13 days for opposing a dystopian law which stands to censor artists. He was a prisoner of conscience. Now released and awaiting trial, he remains at risk of further detention. If Luis Manuel Otero Alcántara is sent back to prison, he would revert to be a prisoner of conscience as the charges against him stem solely from the peaceful exercise of his right to freedom of expression.
