Release Dr. Biscet from Cuban jail
Dr. Oscar Elías Biscet González was born of humble origin in Havana, Cuba on July 20, 1961. Dr. Biscet is a political prisoner in Cuba where the dictatorship says it holds no political prisoners. Yet a multitude of respected human rights organizations like Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch have reported that Cuba does indeed have many political prisoners. Dr. Biscet is considered an Amnesty International prisoner of conscience.
Dr. Biscet is the founder and president of the Lawton Foundation, an organization considered illegal by Fidel Castro's government. The Lawton Foundation peacefully promotes the defense of all human rights through nonviolent civil disobedience. Dr. Biscet, a follower of Thoreau, Gandhi and Martin Luther King, has been mistreated physically and psychologically, has suffering beatings, threats, humiliations, blackmails, intimidating interrogations, and is now unjustly incarcerated by the Castro regime.

We, the signatories of this petition, call on the Cuban Government to
immediately and unconditional release Dr. Oscar Elías Biscet from his unjust
jail sentence on the grounds that he is a prisoner of conscience detained
solely for peacefully attempting to exercise his right to freedom of
expression, association, and assembly.
As international citizens, we are concerned with the physical and mental
well being of Dr. Biscet, as well as fair treatment for all-Cuban political
prisoners, dissidents, oppositionists, and human rights activists.
By signing this petition I am protesting against the unjust detainment of Dr. Oscar Elías Biscet, which is in direct violation of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
(This petition is supported by The International Committee to Free Dr. Oscar Elias Biscet)
