Artists Rights Group started this petition to UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet, and

It is with utmost respect that we address this letter to you to ask your respective institutions to intercede with the government of General Raul Castro and President Díaz Canel to cease the stalking and harassment tactics against the artists and creators from Movimiento San Isidro, who, since November 18 have been gathered in a peaceful cultural meeting at the Movimiento’s headquarters located in the impoverished neighborhood of San Isidro in La  Habana Vieja.

As things stand now, about a dozen young Cubans –poets, journalists, visual artists, musicians and even a scientist- have started a hunger strike, three of them a hunger and thirst strike, to protest the hostility shown to them by the secret police while they were holding a poetry reading to demand peacefully from the Cuban government the release of their colleague, rapper Denis Solis Gonzalez. Mr. Solis Gonzalez has been unfairly arrested and sentenced to eight months in prison on charges of “disobedience”.

We implore you to address the Cuban government urgently about ceasing the coercive harassment of Movimiento San Isidro activists, granting the release of Denis Solis Gonzalez as well as the release of all other political prisoners.
