Placetas, Cuba. An inedited video published by the Directorio Democratico Cubano ( Cuban Democratic Directory) showing the aggressions by the Cuban government repressive forces against three peaceful human rights activists in Cuba while walking on the street towards a house of another human rights activist.
The images captured in Placetas, Villa Clara, show Donaida Perez Paseiro, Damaris Moya Portieles y Yaite Cruz Sosa, all members of the Rosa Parks Feminist Movement for the Civil Rights were stopped by the police, dragged and taken by force to the police station away from the camera.
In the video we can hear people shouting ‘Down the dictatorship’ ‘respect our human rights’ ‘Abusers’. After the images we can hear the voice of one of the women activists describing the horrific experiences they had when taken to the police station. She tells how she was dragged to the police car, receiving punches to her face, having her lips cut. Donaida Perez was kicked on her ribs while being told by the policeman ‘Shut up nigger’. They were taken to the special police centre where political prisoners are lock up, and were beaten up badly. They were kept there for more than three hours.
This video shows only a fragment of the situation many activists and human rights fighters suffer on the everyday basis in Cuba. For those who support Castro regime, think again, many of our people are suffering, repressed and kept in a subliminal cage.
