CUBA / Detained May 2014
Ricardo is a member of Unión Patriótica de Cuba (UNPACU) and was arrested in May 2014 by state security after they violently entered the home of his friend Yoelkis Rosabal Flores. The young men had staged a peaceful protest to call for the release of fellow UNPACU activist Yohannes Arce Sarmiento, who was detained at the time.
Ricardo was charged with “public disorder” and sentenced to three years of jail. Lend your voice and share a solidarity tweet to help #SetThemFree!
