Cuba’s peaceful human rights activists bear the scars of the Castro dictatorship

Take a good look at the pictures below. These images perfectly illustrate who Raul Castro is and what his thuggish and sinister regime is all about: Cowards who violently attack defenseless women and peaceful activists.

Cuban activists have the scars to prove their fight against Castro

In only three years, the Patriotic Union of Cuba, or UNPACU, has grown to become one of the largest and most active opposition groups on the island.

Which is why the Castro police on Sunday attacked UNPACU activists in Santiago de Cuba as they attempted to gather to commemorate the third anniversary of the group's founding. Numerous activists were beaten and/or arrested, according to Martinoticas.com and other reports from the island.

It was all part of at least the 59th Sunday in a row of vicious repression by the regime against the peaceful opposition, with reports of obeatings and arrests from Havana in the west to Holguin in the west, and many spots in between.

Here are photos of two UNPACU activists after they were beaten in Santiago de Cuba.

In them, you can see the face of the Castro dictatorship.
