The reason for the arrest of Antunez (the third in one month) was for carrying out a peaceful sit-in out on the streets of Placetas along with 12 other dissidents. The following Tweets were sent out by Antunez himself moments after being released:
antunezcuba Jorge Luis Garcia (translation):
They have just released me after 72 hours. If this is a strategy to try and wear me out, like agent Azaharis said, then we accept the challenge.
For the member of the OZT Front “the streets belong to the people” is more than just a slogan. It represents our principles.
In a time-frame of 30 days I have suffered 3 arrests, each lasting 72 hours. That is the repression I’ve had to face in the past few days.
If this is not political repression, someone please prove me wrong.
