Castro dictatorship steps up repression

With the Castro dictatorship stepping up its violent repression on the island, the website Hablalo Sin Miedo has become an invaluable tool for Cuba's peaceful opposition. With a simple phone call, they can report the brutal repression of the Castro dictatorship by leaving a recorded message.

Here is the first of two of the latest reports (my translation):

Message from José Daniel Ferrer García regarding imminent detention of various activists in Palmarito de Cauto - 25 of May at 3:44 PM

We are three activist in Palmarita de Cauto who were arriving in the town of La Concepcion for an activity at the Boitel and Zapata Live conference. We are going to be detained within moments. This is the most probable. For more information, call the activists from Palma Soriano.

End of message.

And here is the second one:
