Castro dictatorship using new methods to silence opposition

Pedazos de la Isla reports on the new methods being employed by the Castro dictatorship to silence the opposition on the island and prevent them from getting news of the regime's repression out of the country:

New Censorship Tactic Applied Against Antunez, But he Does Not Remain Silent

When the authors of this blog called Jorge Luis Garcia Perez “Antunez” this past Tuesday, August 30th, to record some declarations about the savage beating carried out against a dissident- Yoan David Gonzalez Milanes- the voice emanating from the other line was not what was expected.  As it turns out, the Cuban political police, bent on silencing and humiliating any person who opposes them, has applied another form of censorship- manipulating voices coming out of cell phones.  Antunez condemned that, this time, the repressive apparatus of the Cuban tyranny, in all its desperation, worked together with the Cuban phone company ETECSA  to distort his voice, making it difficult to understand, attempting to make recorded declarations less credible and to make fun of him.

We had to call the cell phone of Yris Tamara, wife of Antunez, in order to better communicate and record his message.  We were able to record his normal voice, from his wife’s phone, and his distorted phone on his cell phone.  Here are the recordings.  The first half is his regular voice, the second is the work of the Cuban political police:

Listen to the recording and read the rest of the report HERE.
