Video: Cuban opposition protests and Castro dictatorship gassing, beating, and arresting dissidents

More video evidence of the growing and strengthening opposition movement in Cuba, and the brutal and inhumane repression of the dictatorship of Raul Castro in response to the protests:

A residence where opposition members are seeking refuge is tear gassed in order to get them to come out and be beaten by violent Rapid Response Brigades:

The violent arrest of Guillermo Cobas Reyes by Castro State Security agents:

    I hope the fact that these videos are getting out means the Castros' days are numbered.

    Looks like the pot is 'percolating' for real now. This time, unlike past "isolated" protest events, these events are now being played out in ever increasing throughout Cuba number of individuals/groups, and is a VERY PUBLIC way, right in front of the oppressors.

    The point that the opposition has not been able to 'coordinate' their efforts in the past, is all the more reason now (in view that these are NOT coordinated efforts) that these country wide protests are VERY CLOSE to moving from the "opposition" to the general public.

    The next few weeks/months will be interesting to watch. The Castro regime is now facing the most critical time of the last 51 years. They are beginning to lose the fine line between cracking too hard (and inviting popular revolt), or doing otherwise.
