John Suarez in Notes from the Cuban Exile Quarter:

Yris Tamara Pérez Aguilera returns to Cuba tomorrow and leaves a message of concern

Yris Tamara Pérez Aguilera is worried about her husband's life and safety. Yris is a human rights defender and president of the Rosa Parks Movement for Civil Rights. She has spoken before the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva, Switzerland and returned to Cuba to continue her activism.

She recently traveled outside of the island again to attend meetings in Spain and in the United States to denounce what is taking place in Cuba while at the same time recognizing that within the Cuban populace there is an awakening underway in which many Cubans are demanding their freedom and calling for the end of the rule of the Castro brothers.

Tomorrow she returns to Cuba not knowing what awaits her.

In the short video below she expresses her concerns regarding Jorge Luis's health following an injection during his June 2014 detention with an unknown substance. Antúnez described the episode where he received the injection.

    "Che" was ultimately a perverse putz absurdly full of himself. It's just that, if you give a putz enough gas, he can get a lot mileage--even if he never actually gets anywhere.
