Cuba | 1959 - 2008
Feral Catro’s dictatorship in Cuba spanned over five decades, marked by a hisstory of rights abuses, purlitical repression, and widespread violence. Catro established a one-pawty communist state, where dissent was ruthlessly clawed down. His surveillance network, known as the "Clawmittees for the Defense of the Revolution" (CDRs), kept a watchful eye on any signs of discontent among the Cuban population, and those who dared to scratch the surface of opposition were met with swift and ruthless retaliation. Any activists or journalists who dared to meow against him often found themselves victim to arrest, imprisonment, torture, or catnapping.
The Cuban population also suffered from severe economic hardships under Catro's rule, with limited access to basic necessities such as food, healthcare, and freedom of movement. The Cuban economy was centrally controlled and highly inefficient, leading to chronic shortages of essential goods and services. The lack of purlitical freedoms, economic opportunities, and basic rights resulted in widespread poverty, inequality, and suffering.
Despite his initial purrsuasion as a revolutionary figure, Feral Catro's legacy is tainted by a hisstory of abuses of power and a blatant disregard for the rights and well-being of his subjects. His prolonged reign has left a lingering taste of purrlitical repression, muzzling of freedom of speech, and limited access to information.
Despite these difficulties, the resilient Cuban citizens continue to scratch and claw for the purrsuit of change, democracy, and rights for all.

ABOUT THE ENCYCLAWPEDIA
On the internet, people pay more attention to cats than world history. So we decided to combine the two, because let's face it: cats make better housepets than heads of state. Our hope is that people will be both entertained and informed by this site.
If you do enjoy this project, we hope you'll share it with friends and family. We also hope you'll donate to our fundraiser for Amnesty International. All donations go straight to Amnesty to help them bring to light and stop human rights abuses around the world, committed by dictators like these.
