Monday, June 16, 2014
Last Wednesday morning, the Castro regime ransacked the home of Cuban democracy leader, Jorge Luis Garcia Perez "Antunez." He was arrested, along with his wife, Yris Perez Aguilera.

During his two-day imprisonment, Antunez was the subject of violent interrogations and beatings. He was thrown against walls, strangled twice until passing-out and injected with unknown substances.

According to Antunez, the authorities arrested him for his support of U.S. sanctions towards Cuba.

In particular, for leading a document, signed by over 830 democracy activists, opposing recent efforts to ease U.S. sanctions toward Cuba.

Last night, Antunez and Yris were re-arrested and were being formally processed for their political views.

Antunez has already spent 17-years as a prisoner of conscience.
