Forced eviction of 20 families in Boyero, Havana
Leidys Serrano is denouncing that the President of the Boyeros Local Government- a woman named Rosa- visited the building where more than 20 families reside on Friday February 17th and again on Saturday the 18th, telling all inhabitants that there would be a meeting held there on the 20th. During that meeting which took place at around 7:30 on the 20th, Rosa told all the families that they would be evicted on February 22nd, adding that she did not care about human rights or anything of the sort. She also threatened that if the families did not leave, the regime agents would use force to get them out.
The functionary said this in front of Bartolo Marquez, an activist from the Pro-Human Rights Party. The building had been abandoned for 6 years and was recently repaired by its inhabitants.
