"Images of Rebellion" is more than just a book. It is a vibrant testimony to civic resistance in Cuba, featuring an emotive selection of over 21,000 letters and drawings of global support received by the artist Luis Manuel Otero Alcántara, as part of a campaign coordinated by Amnesty International for his release. Through its pages, the work displays the inspiring moments of mobilization from the end of 2020 to the protests of July 2021, as well as the severe governmental repression and the stories of five prisoners of conscience. This book is also a call to action, inviting readers to delve into the powerful stories behind each image and to join the demand for a #CubaSinRepresión.

Cuba: Escalated repression

This document has been prepared for the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) of Cuba in November 2023. In it, Amnesty International assesses the implementation of recommendations made to Cuba in the previous review, primarily concerning the right to freedom of expression and assembly.

It also evaluates the national human rights framework regarding Cuba's ongoing refusal to ratify fundamental international human rights instruments and its recently approved Penal Code.
