Cuba: Human rights activist savagely beaten by Castro State Security

Via Uncommon Sense:

Cuban activist hospitalized after 'savage beating' by Castro police

Cuban activist Rubilandis Ávila González was hospitalized in serious condition this week after suffering a "savage beating" by police who had arrested him, according to opposition sources.

Avila and another activist, Agustín Ferrer Parra, were arrested Monday in Mella, in Santiago de Cuba province, for demonstrating their support for a mass hunger strike under way by fellow members of the Patriotic Union of Cuba (UNPACU).

Later, according to Diario de Cuba, Avila was transferred to a hospital with serious injuries to his head.

"A nurse said he wasn't doing well, with numerous injuries to his head, very weak and losing consciousness," said UNPACU spokesman Ramón Bolaños Martín. "Right here we have his blood-stained shirt."

"We ask for international solidarity," Bolaños said. "If he dies, we blame the Castro dictatorship."
