VIDEO: Once Again, the Women of the Rosa Parks Movement

March was yet another month which began with the accustomed peaceful protest carried out by the women of the Rosa Parks Movement for Civil Rights.  This time, the activity took place in front of the Communist Party headquarters in the town of Santa Clara.  The video of the protest was published recently and you can see how Yris Tamara Aguilera, Yaite Cruz Sosa, Donaida Pérez Paseiros and Yaimara Reyes Mesa are rapidly harassed, dragged, and beaten by functionaries of the communist headquarters.  In the case of Yris Tamara Aguilera, it can be seen how she sits down on the floor as a sign of non-cooperation.  A functionary starts to yell at Yris, demanding that she get up from the street.  The women were simply demanding freedom and an end to the impunity excercised by the regime, as occurs every first day of each month.  The demonstration culminated in a violent arrest.  See the video:

On Sunday, March 11th, dissident Jorge Luis Garcia Antunez was arbitrarily arrested as he was leaving his home in Placetas.  He was kept in a dungeon until Wednesday the 14th despite the fact that he was suffering from serious chest pains.  His wife, Yris Tamara Aguilera, and the same activists which participated in the march on video, were also arrested during afternoon hours of Wednesday the 14th.  In the case of Yris Tamara, she was once again arrested on the morning of Thursday, March 15th, when she was on her way to a medical center to tend to the wounds she had received during her previous time in jail.  After a public call from various activists who declared that they would “take to the streets if Yris was not liberated”, the regime decided to release the activist.  The repression against these men and women is constant, but so too is their perseverance.

    A blockage in the heart blood vessels that reduces blood flow and oxygen to the heart muscle itself, causing pain but not permanent damage to the heart. The chest pain may spread to your arm, shoulder, jaw, or back. It may feel like a pressure or squeezing sensation. Chest pain from angina can be triggered by exercise, excitement, or emotional distress and is relieved by rest. *
