Call for a National Pots-and-Pans Protest in Cuba for the Day of Resistance / Jorge Luis García Pérez Antunez

The Orlando Zapata Tamayo National Civic Resistance and Civil Disobedience Front, as part of its campaign We Are All the Resistance: The Streets Belong to the People and from the call for a Day of Resistance every month, is calling for January 24 to be the Day of Cuban Resistance with a cacerolazo — a protest of banging on pots and pans — at 8 pm. At this time we condemn the cowardly assassination of our brother Wilman Villar Mendoza.

This call has strong acceptance from the opposition sectors across the country and we are calling the people and the internal resistance to pull together, every blow to the pot is a demand, is a cry of condemnation of this heinous murder.

We have been able to confirm the arrest of the coordinator of the Western Front, Eriberto Liranza Romero, who was arrested at his home to prevent his participation in this cacerolazo on the 24th.
