Castro dictatorship unleashes another wave of repression

The dictatorship of Raul and Fidel Castro has unleashed another wave of repression against the island's peaceful human rights activists. Only one week into a new year, the Cuban regime appears insistent on continuing the record-breaking pace of brutal and violent oppression documented last year. Here is a rundown of some acts of repression that have taken place in the last few days:

In the El Cerro district of Havana, a Cuban government organized mob of more than one hundred paramilitary thugs has laid siege to the home of Maritza Castro Martinez. The mob is actively engaged in an "act of repudiation" on the peaceful human rights activist and Lady in White, throwing rocks, bottles, and sticks at the home and the activists trapped inside. Maritza Castro Martinez is currently on a hunger strike demanding the release of Ivonne Malleza, a fellow human rights activist imprisoned since November 30th of last year for a peaceful protest against the tyrannical Castro dictatorship.

Today is the first anniversary of the death of Lady in White and mother of the courageous Sigler Amaya brothers, Gloria Amaya. According to reports coming from Cuba, agents from the Castro regime's State Security have warned family members in Cuba to not even get close today to the cemetery where Gloria is buried or attempt any public gathering in her honor. Moreover, Cuban State Security already has an operation in place to stop and arrest any family members who attempt to visit Gloria Amaya's grave site today.

Gertrudis Ojeda

In Banes, officers from Castro's political police launched hot tar at the home of Lady in White Gertrudis Ojeda, covering the front facade of the home in an attempt to cover the anti-Castro signs displayed at the front of her house. The strong odor of the hot tar has seriously affected one of her sons who is asthmatic.
