As of November 2nd, afternoon:
The situation of the activists arrested on Monday, October 31st has become increasingly worrisome, as their whereabouts are unknown, as far as Antunez, Yris Perez, Idania Yanez, and Damaris Moya. All that is known of this group is that they were severely beaten. Their are no official reports of what prison or detention center they were taken to. Antunez’s sister, Berta Antunez- a tireless human rights activist in exile- has been running the Twitter of Antunez since his arrest. She has not heard of her brother or fellow dissidents, either.
Guillermo Farinas, popularly known for his lengthy hunger strike in 2010, was also arrested. This occurred yesterday when he decided to visit hunger striker Alcides Rodriguez, upon knowing that he was alone (since all the other activists were taken by force from the hospital). While various reports have confirmed that he is being held in the 5th Police Unit of Santa Clara, there is no word on his health, which has been weak since his strike.
FREEDOM FOR ALL, NOW!
