Complaint / Silvio Benítez Márquez

Punta Brava, La Habana

For days the omnipresent political police have been plotting a vast campaign of hostility and harassment of activists and relatives of the citizens’ project Voices of the Neighborhood.

Yesterday afternoon an agent of the repressive apparatus informed Joisy Garcia Martinez, one of the leaders of the citizen initiative, that he was officially called to appear on the morning of Wednesday the 10th at the police station of San Agustin de la Lisa.

This citation and harassment against members of this project led to agreement on a new strategy of the neighborhood spokespeople to collect signatures across the whole island to repeal the current electoral law.
