More on Angel Moya and the other dissidents arrested in Cuba

Once again, we are reminded that there is no real freedom in Cuba.  When you hear about political prisoners freed in Cuba, it doesn't really mean they are free.  It means they are no longer behind prison bars, only behind the bars of the island prison that is Castro's Cuba.  If they dare to exercise their God given human rights and say or do anything the regime considers counter revolutionary, they are once again subject to arbitrary detention and arrest. 

In a incident in the Matanzas province town of Pedro Betancourt,  Magaly N. Otero Suarez  of Hablemos Press, reports that a phone call was received from Angel Moya Acosta that police and state security were at the home of Felix Sierra Sotomayor, member of the Movimiento Libertad Democrática por Cuba.  They were searching for printed materials for a New Cuba, and Hablamos Press newsletters.  (Remeber, in Cuba only the State is allowed to print and share information.)

This was followed by a call from Caridad Gonzalez, Secretary of the Latin American Federation of Rural Women (FLAMUR) in Mantanzas who reported that "Moya, Sierra, Juan Francisco Sigler Amaya, Dagobert Santana, and Edelvis Yanda Perez, were savagely beaten and then detained" She also reported that Edilia Moreno Fernandez, Gulliver Sigler Gonzalez, Jesus Sousa Garcia, Virgilio Sousa Moreno, the 14 year old son of Edilia, Rogelio Inanez and Dagoberto Obanez were also savagely beaten, but not detained.

 The Miami Herald reports that Monday afternoon some of those detained were released, but Berta Soler, wife of Angel Moya, and leader of the Ladies in White, said there is no word on the whereabouts of Angel Moya.
