The Lieutenant Colonel Clown / Jorge Luis García Pérez Antunez

Everyone who has seen the footage of the Rosa Parks Protest Movement in Santa Clara from Feb. 1, will understand not only the repressive machinery of the Castros but how ridiculously they behave.

Paradoxically this time it was not the hitting, dragging, or even the protest itself that attracted the most attention, for that is something that we are accustomed to, but that Lieutenant Colonel wearing his dress uniform displaying his military rank of Lieutenant Colonel making a fool of himself trying to make cover up with a blanket the repression against the girls of Rosa Parks.

Too bad we could not even identify them by their names! And we will, but the suit and visible military ranks speak volumes and lay bare the repressive nature and lack of ethics of the Castro-communist repressive apparatus.

The women: Idania Yánez Contreras, Damaris Moyas Portieles, Yanisbel Valido Pérez, Xiomara Martín Jiménez, Yaite Dionelli Cruz Sosa and Yris Tamara Pérez Aguilera were the participants in that historic day as part of the marches for freedom and impunity that this women’s organization has been holding for two months.

The January march demanded freedom Ivonne Mayeza Galano, her husband Ignacio Martinez and the rest of those arrested in the protest in Fraternity Park and the latter called for the release of Lady in White Yasmín Conlledo Riverón and her husband Yusmari Rafael Álvarez Esmoris arbitrarily arrested during a peaceful protest in the city of Santa Clara. Congratulations to these brave Cuban women, pride of our nation.
