Meritxell Batet, Spanish Member of Congress for the Socialist Group, said today that the situation in Cuba “every day, every minute, every second, is worse.” She stated that the best way to achieve the release of all Cuban political prisoners will be through the united effort of all [Spanish]political parties.

Batet released this message during the debate of a motion on behalf of Cuban dissidents in the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Spanish Congress.

The non-binding proposal, submitted by the Member of Congress for Union del Pueblo Navarro [Union of Navarrean People] (UPN), Carlos Salvador, requests that the President of the Government José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero join the international movement in defense of human rights in Cuba.

It also urges him to join the campaign “I accuse the Cuban government,” launched after the death of Orlando Zapata Tamayo on 23 February after 85 days on hunger strike.
