Histoire administrative

ASOPAZCO (Asociación por la Paz Continental) is a non-governmental human rights organization founded in 1988 by Mari Paz Martínez Nieto. Focusing on human rights abuses in Cuba, the organization has been working within the United Nation's Human Rights Commission in Geneva, Switzerland, since 1993.

The nonprofit supports peaceful activist groups in Cuba who  protest the treatment of the the Damas de Blanco by the Castro regime; exchanges information with groups in the interior of the island who denounce violations of human rights and fundamental liberties; and condemns the situation of political prisoners on the island today.
