Yeris Curbelo Aguilera, Caimanera

They cite a journalist from Palenque Visión who interviewed relatives of detainees in Caimanera

MIAMI, United States. – State Security summoned Yeris Curbelo Aguilera for questioning this Sunday, a reporter for the independent agency Palenque Visión who interviewed relatives of the five people detained in Caimanera for demonstrating against the regime last Saturday night.

In Interview with CubaNet, Curbelo Aguilera specified that on the night of this Sunday, May 7, the head of State Security in Caimanera, Lieutenant Colonel Yosvany Laffita, appeared at his home to summon him for questioning. “He told me that they were already aware of the interview that I conducted with the mothers [de los manifestantes detenidos] and of the reports that I have been giving to the international media and to the media in Cuba,” he said.

According to the reporter, Caimanera “has remained completely militarized.” “The Black Berets are still here. On the night of the 7th, rapid response personnel were at the José Martí de Caimanera park. I was besieged by State Security agents the entire night, ”he recounted.

In addition, Curbelo Aguilera confirmed that the five youths arrested for demonstrating last Saturday remain in custody, three of them unaccounted for and two in the Caimanera Operations Unit.

“I spoke with the mother of two of them,” said the reporter. “She was talking to people from State Security because there are comments that one of them has injuries, Luis Miguel Alarcón. And they tell him no, that it’s a lie, to ignore what they say. They even caught his attention for having given me an interview.”

Regarding the official version of the regime, which spread that the demonstration had been led by a “small group” of drunk people, Curbelo Aguilera said that “none of the young people who protested had a bottle of rum or a can of beer in their hands.”

“You can also see that none of the young people lose their balance while they are protesting and walking; They always hold a firm stance. His expressions are always coherent. That they were under the influence of alcohol is simply one more method that the regime uses to discredit those who demonstrate, ”she concluded.

“What drives these young people to demonstrate on the public highway, said by them in the demonstration and said by the relatives that I interviewed, is the shortage of food in Cuba and the high prices. They made it very clear: that there is hunger, high prices, but also the awareness that they live under a totalitarian, dictatorial and oppressive system. That’s why they scream ‘freedom’, they scream ‘Homeland and Life’”.
