Cuban dictatorship’s brutality against imprisoned protesters increases as November 15 protest approaches

From our Bureau of Socialist Compassion with some assistance from our Annals of the Ministry of Fear Bureau

In the past week, Castro, Inc. has become more ferocious in its approach to jailed protesters from July 11, abusing them more harshly and imposing longer and longer prison sentences on them.

Here are three examples from this past week. These three have relatives who have been brave enough to denounce the abuse. So, we know about them. But due to the fear imposed on families of dissidents, no one knows for sure how many more Cubans are now paying a higher price for their “disobedience” in July. These long prison sentences are meant to scare away all potential protesters who might take part in the November 15 demonstrations.

Ahhhh, the wonders of socialist compassion and open-mindedness. Ahhhh, the wonders of the Ministry of Fear.

Maikel Puig Bergolla and his children

The Mayabeque Prosecutor’s Office requested 25 years imprisonment for the Maikel Puig Bergolla, a participant in the peaceful protests of 11J, for the alleged crimes of public disorder, contempt, instigation to commit a crime and attempted murder.

The defendant’s family says that none of the crimes of which he is accused are true, because he is not a violent person and much less would be capable of harming others, so they do not understand what the Prosecutor’s Office refers to the charge of attempted murder. “I do not know what they are up to, but it is clear to me that they want him to disappear”, said Sayli Núñez, anguished wife of the accused.
