Angel Yunier Remón Arzuaga, the rapper best known as “El Critico” who has been unjustly imprisoned in the Eastern town of Bayamo since March 2013, has not received medical attention after carrying out a 27-day long hunger strike and being returned to Las Mangas Prison, despite suffering various health complications, among them chronic gastritis. In addition, this week penal authorities suspended family visits for the young musician.
Yudisbel Roseyo, wife of Remon, informs in the following audio that the suspension of the visits took place after he refused to shave his beard as a sign of protest and after he painted his sheets with the word “change”.
On her part, Roseyo has been victim of arrests each Sunday for trying to make it to Catholic Mass along with other Ladies in White in Bayamo. Recently, she was kept in a bus under the sun for various hours and this 1st of December her home was stoned by political police officials. These tactics did not impede her from stepping out of her house, and upon doing so she was arrested and physically assaulted by police agents.
Both Roseyo and Remon Arzuaga have been threatened by the regime to not continue with their posture in favor of freedom but both have reiterated that they will keep doing what they have done until now, despite the consequences.
