Paint Used to Cause Terror / Luis Felipe Rojas

Translation of this collage which shows the homes of some dissidents, targets of state vandalism:

(1st row)

Terrorist paint attack in homes of peaceful dissidents.

It is common practice to carry out these attacks at night, while everyone is sleeping. However, they tend to also do them during mob repudiation attacks, organized by State Security and carried out by paramilitary mobs trained under their shield, known as the Rapid Response Brigades. The photos below show the home of Agustin Cervantes in Contramaestre, Santiago de Cuba.

(2nd row)

The three following photos show the home of Raudel Avila Losada in Palma Soriano, Santiago de Cuba.

(3rd row, on the Right)
The photos on the left are of terrorist paint attacks in the home of Sara Marta Fonseca Quevedo in the neighborhood of Rio Verde, Havana.

(4th and last row, to the left)
Blue paint attack in home of independent journalist Luis Felipe Rojas in San German, Holguin, different to the accustomed black tar commonly used. These are similar to the fascist methods applied against Jews during the Second World War, as their homes were marked.
