Wednesday, December 9, 2015
At 5 a.m. yesterday, Cuban special forces assaulted the home of democracy leader, Yoandris Beltran Gamboa, confiscated his belongings and arrested him.

Beltran Gamboa is the coordinator of the Cuban Patriotic Union (UNPACU) in the eastern city of Guantanamo.

Among the items confiscated from his home were a computer, flash drives, picture camera and cell phones.

His parents, siblings and children were all present during the attack, and were consequently injured. His mother had to be subsequently hospitalized.

On Sunday, Beltran Gamboa had been brutally beaten for participating in a peaceful protest, as part of the #TodosMarchamos campaign.

He remains unaccounted for since yesterday's arrest.
