Capitol Hill Cubans:

Cuban Dissidents Suffer Violent Crackdown
at 3:36 PM Wednesday, June 11, 2014

The Castro regime has unleashed a violent crackdown against Cuba's democracy leaders.

Here's a summary:

At 6 A.M., Castro's secret police ransacked the home of Cuban democracy leader, Jorge Luis Garcia Perez "Antunez." He was beaten and arrested, along with his wife, Yris Perez Aguilera.

Roberto Guerra, a Cuban independent journalist and head of the Hablemos Press news service, was beaten by Castro's security agents (pictured below).

Martha Beatriz Roque, former prisoner of conscience, was also intercepted and beaten outside her home.

Twelve members of The Ladies in White, including its leader Berta Soler, were arrested as they tried to attend a trial involving one of their colleagues, Yanelis Cutino.

A half-dozen members of the Cuban Patriotic Union (UNPACU), including its leader Jose Daniel Ferrer, were intercepted, beaten and arrested as they traveled from Santiago de Cuba to Las Tunas.

For the 22nd week in a row, 27 UNPACU activists were arrested in Santa Clara, including its regional leader, Sakarov Prize recipient Guillermo Farinas, who is facing threats of being confined to a psychiatric hospital.

More "reform" you can't believe in.
