    Re: Protest marchers beaten, detained

    Castros’ regime is afraid of the people, and is willing to do anything in its power to control their protests. But every single act of repression against the people brings them closer to its demise. The oppression and repression of the Cuban people for the last 52 years is coming to an end.

    Cuba steps up attacks on dissidents, activists say
    Cuba steps up attacks on dissidents, activists say - CNN.com

    By the CNN Wire Staff
    September 1, 2011

    Havana, Cuba (CNN) -- Cuba has stepped up its harassment of dissidents in the eastern province of Santiago de Cuba, with authorities beating, gassing and arresting protesters critical of the Communist government, human rights activists said Wednesday.

    During the past five weekends, the government has strongly repressed peaceful protests in several eastern cities, said Elizardo Sanchez, the head of the island's unofficial Commission for Human Rights and National Reconciliation. In at least one case, in the town of Palma Soriano, forces used gas -- either pepper spray or tear gas -- against one family, Sanchez said.

    Among those targeted are the Ladies in White, a group of mothers, sisters and friends of jailed dissidents who hold regular marches, said Berta Soler, one of its founding members.

    "Starting on July 17, the government has been responsible for criminal, violent acts against women who only want to go to the church for Mass, to pray and ask for freedom for political prisoners," Soler told CNN.
    Well, well, at last the Castro National Network (CNN) started to report the protests, because until now their Havana Bureau had been silent about the protests by the dissidents. Look that independent news sources on the internet that have been reporting the protests motivated the agency to report it too.

    The Castros regime is and always has been a fraud, held together with propaganda that only the uninformed believes. Now it is being exposed for what it has always been and is coming apart at the seams.

    Street protest in Palma Soriano, Cuba

    Here is a video of the courageous opposition members staging a protest in Palma Soriano, Oriente Province, Cuba, September 6, speaking out and fighting back against the regime mobs organized by the Castros regime to intimidate and attack peaceful activists.

    People staging the protest started to shout: “Down with the dictatorship, assassins, assassins, assassins. Down with Fidel, down, down, down. Freedom, freedom, freedom. Down with the hunger, down with terrorism.

    Abajo la dictadura, asesinos. Abajo Fidel, abajo. Libertad, libertad. Abajo el hambre, abajo el terrorismo.
    This protest was in response to the attack with tear gas and ransack of Mario Antomarchi Rivero humble family home These protests are only the ones caught on video. Many more are not caught on video o reported to the general public. They are never carried on the regime controlled TV.

    Seem that the time is ripe for the Cuban people to rise up in justify anger and rage, and march in the streets calling for the demise of the Castro brothers’ regime; to be replace for a form of government more in tune with the people. Let not forget that around 20 percent of the Cuban population has chosen to escape the island of Dr. Castro, rather than yield to his insane experiment.

    Cuba won't allow refugee’s son to come to Canada
    Cuba won't allow refugee

    CBC News

    yadier-perez-leon.jpg
    Yadier Perez Leon wants his son to join him in Canada. (Facebook)

    While many Canadians' image of Cuba includes sandy beaches and tropical drinks, one St. John's resident paints a very different picture.

    Yadier Perez Leon arrived two years ago after escaping his native Cuba by boat. It was a harrowing journey, during which the craft ran out of gas, leaving them stranded on an island for two weeks.

    They eventually landed in Florida, after being discovered by the US Coast Guard. After months of bureaucratic processing, Canadian officials approved him as a refugee in February.

    Now Leon wants his 5 year-old son to join him.

    As a refugee, he has one year to bring relatives to Canada. But Cuban officials are making it tough. Despite repeated dealings with the consul in Montreal, the government there won't allow the boy to leave.
    Leon says their resistance stems from a long-standing grudge.

    During the communist revolution led by Fidel Castro in 1959, people had their property taken away. Leon's grandfather owned a large farm and a lot of livestock, all of which was seized. His family continued to express disagreement about this over the years.

    According to Leon, the Cuban government can make life difficult for those who show dissent.
    Several years ago, the island nation was struck by a hurricane. While other residents received government assistance to rebuild, his mother did not. Leon was incapacitated at the time, following a bad motorcycle accident, and was unable to help.

    Discouraged and bedridden, it was then that he made the decision to leave.

    "I say, 'Okay, Yadier, you need to get out (of) the bed, make yourself strong,'" said Leon, who is now learning to speak English in St. John's. "You need (to) go outside this country because you don't have too much time in the life. In this country, you don't have any opportunity."

    Now Leon wants the same opportunity for his son.

    "This boy, my little son need me, the only father he have," said Leon, whose wife died only two days after giving birth to their child. "And I need him."

    He hopes getting the word out will help resolve the situation.

    "Please, call everyone in the world, everyone in this country," said Leon. "Everyone hear this situation, help me for my son stay with me as soon as possible."
    The Castroit tyrannical military regime is preventing a five years old boy from reunited with his father. There will not be any international outrage or media coverage of this story by the MSM unlike the Elian case. They will ignore this story.

    Cuban human rights groups report more than 500 political arrests in August
    Uncommon Sense: Cuban human rights groups report more than 500 political arrests in August

    Uncommon Sense
    September 4, 2012

    However you count it, the repression in Cuba does not let up.

    The Cuban Commission on Human Rights and National Reconciliation reports there were 521 political arrests in Cuba in August -- more than twice the number reported in August 2011.

    The Hablemos Press Information Center (CIHPRESS), an independent news agency that keeps close tabs on repression in Cuba, reports there were 538 political arrests last month, the highest monthly total since March.

    The differing counts reveal the challenges that human rights activists face as they try to hold the regime for its repression.

    But as important as the bottom-line numbers, are the trends.

    Whatever the wishful, delusional thinking of those who believe that if we allow more money, in the form or travel or remittances or trade, to flow to Cuba, the more likely the Castros will change their ways, the repression is getting worse.

    However you count it, the suffering in Cuba is getting worse.

    As long as there are Cubans with the courage to resist, and with the blood-thirst of the Castros to stifle their opposition, that will not change.
    The tyrannical Castroit monarchy keeps outdoing itself with regard to the repression of the human rights activists. During the last two years the harassment and detention of dissidents across the island has risen sharply.

    This video by Amnesty International reveals new tactics by the Cuban regime security apparatus to punish individuals which oppose the regime.

    44 Ladies in White Beaten and Arrested
    Capitol Hill Cubans: 44 Ladies in White Beaten and Arrested

    Where are all the international women's rights activists?

    Where are the foreign news bureaus in Cuba?

    This behavior is deplorable.

    From the leader of The Ladies in White, Berta Soler:

    The Ladies in White Movement denounces the detention of 44 Ladies in White across the island on Sunday, November 11th, by the Cuban government's State Security forces, in order to prevent their attendance in Mass.

    Nine women were arrested in Havana; 5 in Pinar del Rio; 2 in Matanzas; 3 in Santa Clara; 6 in Holguin; 1 in Caimanera; and 18 in Santiago de Cuba.

    Romelia Piña González and Marlenis Abreu Almaguer were dragged and beaten in Holguin in front of the Church Cristo Redentor del Hombre by male State Security agents.

    State Security agents posted outside of the Cathedral of Santiago de Cuba beat and dragged all 18 Ladies in White as they came out of the temple after attending Mass.
    Three of the women were injured: Aimé Garcés Leiva lost a tooth, Denia Fernández Rey lost two teeth and Omagli González Leiva fractured fingers and an arm.

    The repression against the Ladies in White continuous unabated. State Security Agents continuous to harass and arrest them to prevent them from exercising their rights to pacifically assemble and attend mass.
