The month of June saw the highest number of cases, indicating a continued deterioration in respect for FoRB. Over the six-month period, CSW recorded 1,606 separate religious freedom violations; many cases involved large numbers of victims.
The violations documented include:
• Demolition and confiscation of church buildings

• Arbitrary detention
• Other forms of harassment, particularly the confiscation and seizure of personal belongings of religious leaders
• Over 1,000 Protestant churches are still under threat of confiscation and have not had their ‘illegal’ status overturned. Please Read More about brifing

Church demolitions in Cuba are yet another obstruction for Christians living in a Communist nation where gatherings are as of now illegal from evangelizing, broadcasting over the aviation routes or running their own schools.
