State Security surround MCL member's home to prevent protest in Cuba's Revolution Square

State Security surround home of Rosa Rodriguez of MCL to prevent her approaching Revolution Square on January 6, 2013

Cuban mom's home surrounded to prevent her showing poster calling for son's freedom
At 12:07pm on January 6, 2014 Rosa María Payá Acevedo tweeted: "Four years ago state security abducted Rosa M Rodriguez and threatened to jail her son Yosvani Melchor if she didn't leave the Christian Liberation Movement." 

According to a statement published the same day with the above photo over Facebook by the Christian Liberation Movement (MCL), State Security agents of the Cuban economic-military junta kept the home of MCL member, Rosa Rodriguez, surrounded on January 6, 2014. She had wanted to approach Revolution Square with a poster calling for the release of her young and mentally challenged son, Yosvany Melchor, who has unjustly been suffering imprisonment since June 2010.  

The Cuban Gestapo has told Yosvany's mother that while she remains a member of the MCL, her child will not be free.

Yosvany was detained in June of 2010 and sentenced in a politicized show trial on November 30, 2010 after his mother refused to become an informant for state security. The martyred dissident, Oswaldo Payá Sardiñas, in a September 23, 2011 response to an Associated Press interview in which he addressed this case:
"There are political prisoners in Cuba; the son of a member of the Christian Liberation Movement (MCL) was sentenced to 12 years in jail for the sole reason of being the son of a MCL member. His name is Yosvany Melchor Rodriguez and he was artificially condemned in Santiago de Cuba on November 30, 2010, after his mother was threatened by state security forces for not wanting to cooperate against us."
Cuba under the Castro brothers is a communist totalitarian regime in which families are targeted and the loved ones of dissidents are used as hostages.
