Quote of the Week: On Repression of Cuban Activists

Wednesday, June 18, 2014
Every Monday we head out to the house where we meet, which is located on Missionary Street. They start to arrest us from the corner of my own house. These arrests include beatings by members of the special brigade — known in Cuba as boinas negras (black berets) — who have specific orders to beat the male members of our organization.
