Opposition leaders in Cuba re-arrested, face prosecution

John Suarez in Notes from the Cuban Exile Quarter:

Two civic opposition leaders re-arrested face prosecution
" I know that what the tyranny is worried about is that I won't go away, and will continue talking. Today I alert the world that my life is more in danger than ever." -  Jorge Luis Garcia Perez "Antúnez" June 13, 2014

They were released on the morning of Friday, June 13, 2014 and Antúnez made a statement where he denounced being beaten up, choked into unconsciousness on two occasions and "revived" with injections of an unknown substance.
