Video: Arrest of Orlando Zapata Tamayo Resistance Front Members in Placetas Caught on Film

In honor of Orlando Zapata Tamayo on the second anniversary of his assassination this past February 23rd, activists from the Orlando Zapata Tamayo National Civic Resistance and Civil Disobedience Front in Placetas took to the street to carry out a civic march.  This march was rapidly repressed by political police agents.

As a display of civil disobedience, the demonstrators- among them Jorge Luis Garcia Perez Antunez- sat on the floor when they saw their oppressors running towards them.  The agents handcuffed, pushed, and arrested the activists, later shoving them in a bus to take them detained.  The arrested dissidents were  Yaimara Reyes Mesa, Yaité Cruz Sosa, Fautino Calá, Santos Fernández, Dinel Millet Jiménez y Antúnez, all of which began to shout slogans such as “freedom for Cuba” and “long live human rights”.

Here is the video:
