    14ymedio, Havana, 29 September 2017 — State Security cited and threatened three opponents they the would be charged with the crimes of instigation to commit crimes and public disorder after participating two weeks ago in a protest in Carlos Rojas, a town of about 6,000 inhabitants located in the municipality of Jovellanos, in Matanzas province.

    Armando Abascal Serrano, Dianelis Moreno Soto and Aloy Betancourt Méndez, belonging to the Pedro Luis Boitel Party for Democracy, were cited on Thursday to appear at the police station.

    The activists were questioned by several officers, including captain Miladys Sotolongo Martínez, and State Security officers, Dario Torres Barrios and Dayron Rivera.

    Cubans dissidents keep paying a high price for their actions. State security keeps threatening peaceful dissidents for exercising their basic civil and political rights. Looks that the regime is really worried, since the number of detainees keep growing and the number of dissidents and protest keep increasing.

    Another Sunday, another attack on Ladies in White
    Another Sunday, another attack on Ladies in White | Babalú Blog

    October 23, 2017 by Carlos Eire



    From Martí Noticias:

    Some 30 Ladies in White were arrested Sunday in Havana, Palma Soriano, Matanzas and Guantánamo, according to reports from dissident sources to Radio Martí.

    After the arrests in Havana, an act of repudiation was launched against the group’s headquarters in the Havana neighborhood of Lawton, said dissident Angel Moya to Radio Martí.

    Political ex-prisoner Ángel Moya reported that in Havana there were 13 arrests, 12 in Palma Soriano and three in Guantanamo, two of them human rights activists. The opponent explained that the figure could be higher and clarified that “several of the Ladies in White were released hours later.”

    Among those arrested were Berta Soler, Martha Sánchez and Yolanda Santana.
    Berta Soler is the leader of the Ladies in White. In a tweeter Ángel Moya said that after the arrest, “the Communist Party activated an act of repudiation with the protection of the State Security and the National Police.” The repression against the Ladies in White continuous week after week on Sundays.

    Another Sunday of violent repression in Cuba More than 20 Ladies in White arrested while trying to attend church
    Another Sunday of violent repression in Cuba: More than 20 Ladies in White arrested while trying to attend church | Babalú Blog

    November 13, 2017 by Alberto de la Cruz



    Yesterday was the 123rd Sunday of the #TodosMarchamos peaceful protest campaign in Cuba and the 123rd instance where the participants were met with violent repression and arrests by the apartheid Castro dictatorship. More than 20 women, members of the opposition group the Ladies in White, were arrested as they tried to make their way to church services.

    Diario de Cuba has the report (my translation):

    Activists denounce the arrest of more than 20 Ladies in White to prevent them from attending church services

    Former political prisoners from the Group of 75 denounced the arrests this Sunday of more than 20 Ladies in White to prevent them from attending church and participating in the #TodosMarchamos protest campaign calling for the release of political prisoners.

    Some of the Ladies in White are sent to prison, others are arbitrarily fine, and most of them are harass and beating by State Security Agents to prevent them from exercising their rights to pacifically assemble.

    Cuba’s National “Women’s Week” Features Violence against Ladies in White
    https://panampost.com/antonella-mart...castro-regime/

    BY: ANTONELLA MARTY - @ANTONELLAMARTY - DEC 12, 2017


    The Ladies in White are attacked on a daily basis by the regime for marching peacefully. (Flickr)

    I just returned from a trip to Cuba, and I must say that I saw things there I never thought I would. I was already aware that communism does not work, but this trip showed me the destruction up close. I walked through the devastation of the longest dictatorship in Latin American history, where the same tyrants have ruled since 1959, and where political propaganda abounds and the humiliation of the Cuban people is a common occurrence.

    Throughout the week of my visit, I had the opportunity and the great honor to meet with the women I most admire in the world. They are women who fight for the freedom of political prisoners in Cuba, women who fight for the freedom of the Cuban people. They’re the Ladies in White, and they are attacked on a daily basis by the regime for protesting peacefully, dressed in white and asking for the most sacred thing a human being can have: freedom.

    While I was there, the Cuban television channels were plagued with political propaganda for what the regime called “National Women’s Week,” during which Castro and his cronies denounced violence against women despite having killed and beaten the brave women who march for peace and freedom in the Ladies in White.

    This is the 125 Sunday that the Ladies in White have been violently repressed by the regime State Security when they attempted to go to church for simply exercising their right in a non-violent way.

    Re: Protest marchers beaten, detained

    Here are some of the latest videos of the repression and violence against the Ladies in White:







    These videos shows the real nature of the Castroit tyrannical regime. In one of the videos, when coming out from church, the Ladies in White are beating by a member of the Communist Party. The Castroit regime does not care about consequences for criminal behavior. Under this regime justice is a four letter word.

    Cuba Further information Prisoner of conscience attacked in prison Dr Eduardo Cardet Concepción
    https://www.amnesty.org/en/documents.../7759/2018/en/

    22 January 2018, Index number: AMR 25/7759/2018

    URGENT ACTION

    PRISONER OF CONSCIENCE ATTACKED IN PRISON

    On 19 December 2017, after being transferred from the Provisional Prison of Holguín to Cuba SI prison, three other prisoners attacked Eduardo Cardet, according to his wife. He is a prisoner of conscience who must be released immediately and unconditionally.

    On 19 December 2017, the afternoon after authorities transferred Dr Eduardo Cardet Concepción from the Provisional Prison of Holguín to Cuba SI prison in the same province, three other prisoners allegedly attacked him, according to his wife, Yaimaris Vecino. Prison authorities only informed his wife and family that same day that they would be transferring Eduardo Cardet to a different prison. They only permitted his family to see him for several minutes and did not provide the family with reasons for the transfer.

    Yaimaris Vecino told Amnesty International that prison officials did not permit her to visit her husband after the attack until 15 January 2018, when she observed two circular scars to Eduardo Cardet’s abdomen. She stated that her husband told her that he had not received medical attention since the attack and was experiencing headaches and dizziness.

    On 9 January, Eduardo Cardet’s sister lodged a complaint regarding the alleged attack with the Public Prosecutor in Havana, the capital. As of 19 January the family had not received a response, according to Yaimaris Vecino.

    Eduardo Cardet is the leader of the pro-democracy movement Christian Liberation Movement (Movimiento Cristiano Liberación, MCL). He has been imprisoned in Holguín since his arrest on 30 November 2016, five days after the death of the former leader of Cuba, Fidel Castro. Prior to his arrest, Eduardo Cardet gave a number of interviews published in international media in which he was critical of the Cuban government.
    Eduardo Cardet Concepción, a Cuba physician, successor to murdered leader of the Christian Liberation Movement (MCL), Oswaldo Payá, and in prison since November 30, 2016, was badly beaten and stabbed twice by three prisoners on December 19, 2017.

    Re: Protest marchers beaten, detained

    On January 31, 2017 Amnesty International recognized Eduardo Cardet as a prisoner of conscience. Cardet was sentenced to three years in prison on March 20, 2017 following a mock trial in Cuba. After the murder of Oswaldo Payá and Cepero, Cardet was appointed national coordinator of the MCL in November 2014. Since then he has been detained several times.

    Barred from Leaving Cuba to Attend an Event Not Approved by the Government
    Barred from Leaving Cuba to Attend an Event Not Approved by the Government – Translating Cuba


    Alfredo and Ariel López González, brothers who farm in the San Juan y Martínez area in Pinar del Río. (CEC)

    14ymedio Posted on February 25, 2018

    14ymedio – Authorities prevented two farmers from the municipality of San Juan y Martínez, in Pinar del Río province, from traveling to Miami on Friday. The two were scheduled to participate in a conference sponsored by the Center for Coexistence Studies (CEC) scheduled for this weekend. The Directorate of Immigration and Alien Affairs claimed that both are “restricted” and not allowed to leave the country, according to 14ymedio.

    The two brothers received a visit from two uniformed State Security officers last Friday night. The officers, identified as Orestes and Major Joaquín, warned both men that they would not be able to travel to Florida because the event to which they were invited was “not approved by the [Cuban] government.”

    In October 2012, the Castroit regime supposedly lifted the travel ban. Cubans need only to have a passport and a visa from the country of destination to travel. The meaning of the law was that Cubans will no longer have to apply for an exception to the travel ban or show a letter of invitation from a person in the intended destination. But of course the regime will decide who can renew or obtain passports and denied the right to travel for whatever reason it deems necessary. The regime allow the people to enjoy the illusion that they can leave. Activists, athletes, doctors, engineers, priests pastors and many others, often discover they have been barred from leaving the country.
