Elsa Morejon, wife of Cuban dissident Dr. Oscar Elías Biscet, writes in The Washington Post on the continued repression of human rights in Cuba. Dr. Biscet was arrested in 2003, along with 74 other activists, for his nonviolent opposition to Cuba’s communist regime and his advocacy for freedom. In 2007, President Bush awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Dr. Biscet for his courage. Dr. Biscet was not released from prison until 2011, so his family accepted the medal in his absence.
