The Castro regime's secret police brutally assaulted a group of dissidents who tried to gather in the cemetery to commemorate the one-year anniversary of the death -- pursuant to a hunger strike -- of former political prisoner Wilman Villar Mendoza.
The victims were members of the Cuban Patriotic Union (UNPACU), a pro-democracy group in the eastern provinces led by former political prisoner Jose Daniel Ferrer.
The secret police attacked them with clubs and switch blades.
Below is a video of some of the victims and their injuries.
More "reform" you can't believe in.
