Cuban Pastor Jailed for Months without Trial for Participating in Peaceful Protests against Communist Regime

A Christian human rights organization is calling on people around the globe to join their campaign in petitioning for the release of a Cuban pastor who has been incarcerated without trial after he partook in peaceful protests across the island nation earlier this summer.

According to Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW), Lorenzo Rosales Fajardo, a Cuban Protestant pastor, was arrested on July 11 after he and his 17-year-old son joined other Cubans in protesting against the country’s communist regime in Palma Soriano.

As reported by CBN News, the protest was the largest anti-government demonstration in 60 years. Demonstrating Cubans were demanding change from their government due to shortages of food and medicine, which worsened during the COVID-19 pandemic.

While the protests were held peacefully, state security forces retaliated through violence and mass detentions of the Cuban people, including Fajardo and his son.

According to Fajardo’s wife, Maridilegnis Carballo, the couple’s son was later released, but her husband remains in jail.
