My Detention / Silvio Benítez Márquez

This March 3 I was detained for more than 72 hours by the repressive forces of the regime. It happened when I was walking along 51 Avenue in the Marianao neighborhood in Havana, holding a sign that said, “Down with the snitches like Serpa Mareira,” the State Security agent who passed himself off as a dissident. (See my article about it here.)

During the arrest I was threatened with prosecution if I continued my activism against the abuses of the tyranny.

It is time for Cuban civil society to make its way without fearing tyranny’s threats.

You who read my blog spread the news, knowing that you protect me, in my struggle, from the abuses this dictatorship can take against me in retaliation for raising my voice.
