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."
