|Antúnez and Yris re-arrested by State Security|
"I went to the PNR (Revolutionary National Police) unit in the municipality of Placetas, from where I am speaking to learn about the arrest of this brother and sister and the state security official called "Reinier" tells me that these activists will be processed by justice without say anything more, or give me another reason. When I ask him again, he answered me and repeated that they would be prosecuted and did not know how long they would be there, because he did not know, he had nothing to do with it, he had to wait for orders from the high command, "said Paceiro Pérez."Antúnez" and his wife Yris had their home raided at 6am last Wednesday, June 11, 2014, and they were grabbed out of bed, handcuffed and taken to be interrogated. They were released on the morning of Friday, June 13, 2014 and Antúnez made a statement where he denounced being beaten up, choked into unconsciousness on two occasions and "revived" with injections of an unknown substance. He remained defiant and laid down the following challenge to the dictatorship:
" I know that what the tyranny is worried about is that I won't go away, and will continue talking. Today I alert the world that my life is more in danger than ever because if I was accused of being the instigator of propaganda, then I will continue being the instigator, because information is vital in the fight, and if they demand freedom for the five, I'm within my rights to demand freedom for Ivan (Fernandez Depestre), (Armando) Sosa Fortuny, freedom for Ciro Alexis Casanova Pérez. If they think that stealing from me in my house will break my spirit, then take me back there, apply it again, knock the air out of me again and murder me because today more than ever I scream " Boitel and Zapata Live” and all that I know how to shout!"
