Iván Hernández Carrillo, an independent labor organizer was savagely beaten and arrested at the Havana airport by State Security agents yesterday.
Labor unions are illegal in the worker’s paradise of Castrogonia. All workers must belong to the only labor union in Cuba, which is run by the Castro regime.
Iván Hernández Carrillo had been allowed to travel outside of Castrogonia and was returning home.
He feared returning home, and had said in a news interview in Miami that what he feared the most was the airport.
His mother reports that as soon as he arrived in Havana, State Security agents wanted to whisk him away from other passengers and to inspect him and his luggage behind closed doors.
When he requested to be inspected out in the open with all the other passengers the State Security agents subjected him to a savage beating and kept kicking him after he fell to the ground.
He was taken to the police station at Santiago de las Vegas, in Havana. His current whereabouts are unknown.
