In their denouncement they describe workdays that last as long as 16 hours, they are fed substandard food, and no medical attention. 

The authorities at the prison, which the inmates describe as complicit and corrupt, have full knowledge of what is taking place and it "allows them to sell the individual parts of the vehicles they take apart." There are approximately 4,000 inmates at the Combinado del Este...

So, how can they tell if they're in prison, or just a simple citizen in the commie paradise known as Cuba?

You just KNOW Obama is jealous of anybody able to arrest their internal opposition at will- and did you hear where Harry Bellafonte came out and admonished Obama to ‘just lock them (conservatives) up’...?

After what I’ve said on my blog, he’d put ME in Gitmo if he thought he could get away with it...
