Repression and Intimidation on Display in Castrogonia
From Martha Beatriz Roque: two photos that capture the art of repression practiced by Castrogonian goons. They are dated January 23rd, 2014.
Her title for these images: "Sentirse fuerte" (To feel strong -- the attitude one must have to survive situations such as this time and time again).
First, a snapshot of two female police officers on guard at the bottom of her apartment's staircase. They are there to block her access to the street.
Imagine encountering this repression on a regular basis.
The second photo captures a police officer cornering dissident blogger Lilliam Ruiz, preventing her from visiting Martha.
Here are the grainy close-ups:
Again, "reforms" you can believe in. Socialismo o muerte! Socialism or death. Or, to quote the devil himself: "Revolution of the humble, by the humble, and for the humble."
