Washington, DC - The Cuba Study Group today issued the following statement on the 6th anniversary of the Cuban government crackdown that resulted in the incarceration of 75 peaceful democracy advocates:



"The Cuba Study Group calls on the Cuban government to immediately release the remaining 54 peaceful democracy advocates who were unjustly imprisoned in the spring of 2003 and who remain subjected to inhumane conditions and treatment in Cuban jails. The immediate release of these democracy advocates would represent an important step by Cuban leaders and open new possibilities for the relationship between Cuba and the United States."
