Cuba: Death threats, beatings, arrests, just another day in paradise

The repression of peaceful dissent in Cuba is relentless and violent.  God help those Cubans who dare to exercise their God given rights, and freely speak out against the regime's atrocities.

 This is a sampling of the brutality of the Castro regime's daily method of silencing dissent excerpted from  Varios Arrestos en el Dia del Opositor .   (my translation)

Dania Virgen García - Cuba - Sept. 18, dissidents celebrating the Day of Opposition in various provences were arrested and beaten.
