An excellent and balanced article!Kudos to Babalu blog!Among the somewhat reasonable excitement over the traveling out of Cuba of some of the most glamorous of the dissidents like Yoani Sanchez, Rosa Maria Paya, and Eliecer Avila, extremely alarming things are happening. Two independent reporters arrested (they released Cedeņo but Calixto Roman continues to be locked up). Angel Santiesteban gets of every morning in Havana with the shock that they could send a patrol car to pick him up to serve his five-year sentence. The number of arbitrary arrests, the beatings and the hours of harassment of human rights activists and opponents in general is increasing, and as events go, it could become a fateful record.
The Cuban Democratic Directorate reported that the Central Opposition Coalition (CCO), the internal resistance in the center of the island, reported on the afternoon of February 16, 2013 the death of inmate Roberto Antonio Rivalta Junco, who began a hunger strike demanding his innocence, according to Damaris Moya Portieles, president of the CCO.
Major Luis Alcantara, director of Jails and Prisons of Villa Clara, who knew of the case, is ultimately responsible for the death of Rivalta Junco, say these sources. Another life added to the list of people who prefer to immolate themselves rather than admit to a crime they did not commit or endure harassment by their military in charge of their custody.
