Jan 26, 2012 | Blog

Earlier today, Senator Rubio introduced a Senate Resolution honoring Wilman Villar Mendoza. The Senate Resolution, introduced with Senators Menendez (D-NJ) and Nelson (D-FL), condemned the oppressive Cuban regime and honored the life of Cuban Dissident Villar Mendoza.  Cuban political prisoner Wilman Villar Mendoza was arrested in November 2011 for holding a peaceful demonstration and sentenced to four years in prison. He died last week after a 56-day hunger strike protesting his unjust imprisonment.
Senate Resolution 354 is available here.
