The image below is of Yunaisi Carracedo, a democracy activist with the Cuban Patriotic Union (UNPACU) in the eastern city of Santiago de Cuba.
She was beaten by Castro's agents during a weekend crackdown that resulted in the arrest of over 130 of UNPACU's members.
Yunaisi sustained injuries to the face, arm and hand.
Every weekend, Cuba's dictatorship violently attacks peaceful, female activists -- with impunity.
More "reform" you can't believe in.
