Standoff in Santiago de Cuba park as dozens of pro-democracy dissidents mount protest

Jose Daniel Ferrer

Nearly three dozen human rights and pro-democracy activists in Cuba led by independent journalist and former prisoner of conscience Jose Daniel Ferrer have mounted a protest in the central park of Santiago de Cuba, an eastern city in Cuba. The group of approximately 30 activists is protesting the Castro dictatorship's increased repression and the imprisonment of fellow activists such as Luis Enrique Losada Igarza and rapper Angel Yunier Remon. Cuban State Security has surrounded the park and cut off Jose Daniel Ferrer's cell phone connection, leading to the current stand off. The group of dissidents has vowed to remain in the park and undertake hunger strikes as part of their protest.

At this moment there are forty members of UNPACU, an independent human rights organization on the island led by Ferrer, currently imprisoned by the Castro regime's State Security.
