Dr. Oscar ElĂas Biscet GonzĂˇlez was born of humble origin in Havana, Cuba on July 20, 1961. Dr. Biscet is a political prisoner in Cuba where the dictatorship says it holds no political prisoners. Yet a multitude of respected human rights organizations like Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch have reported that Cuba does indeed have many political prisoners. Dr. Biscet is considered an Amnesty International prisoner of conscience.
Dr. Biscet is the founder and president of the Lawton Foundation, an organization considered illegal by Fidel Castro's government. The Lawton Foundation peacefully promotes the defense of all human rights through nonviolent civil disobedience. Dr. Biscet, a follower of Thoreau, Gandhi and Martin Luther King, has been mistreated physically and psychologically, has suffering beatings, threats, humiliations, blackmails, intimidating interrogations, and is now unjustly incarcerated by the Castro regime.
