Free Antunez

Wednesday, March 14, 2012
This past Sunday night, Cuban pro-democracy leader Jorge Luis Garcia Perez "Antunez" was arrested near his home in the town of Placetas.

They said he was being detained “under orders from the high command in Havana.”

Yesterday, female leaders of the Rosa Parks Movement for Civil Rights, Donaida Perez Paseiros, Xiomara Martin Jimenez, Yaimara Reyes Mesa, and Yaite Sosa, went to the police station to protest the arrest of Antunez.

They were savagely beaten and arrested as well.

All five remain in prison.

UPDATE: Antunez was released last night.
