Cuban Resistance activists Antonio G. Rodiles and Ailer María González fear having had their skin punctured and possibly being exposed to an unknown substance after being injected by members of the State Security Police. This incident occurred while in the process of both Rodiles and González being arrested for participating in last Sunday's #TodosMarchamos in solidarity with the Ladies in White.
These four activists of the Cuban National Civic Resistance Front have been imprisoned since early December for leading the way for the people of Camaguey province, in Cuba, in the "No to the Dictatorship, Yes to Freedom Campaign." These young men are incarcerated for simply rising to say "No!" to a 57-year old dictatorship.Their courage has become an example for activists throughout Cuba who continue to join the "No Campaign," launched by former political prisoner Jorge Luis Garcia Perez "Antunez," Secretary General of the National Civic Resistance Front.

Hugo Damián Prieto Blanco, Leader of the Orlando Zapata Tamayo Civic Action Front,
has taken great personal risk and suffered countless arrests and prolonged detentions at the hands of the Castro Regime.
Hugo Damián's current detention is for organizing a peaceful protest in front of the Prosecutor's Office in Havana that took place on October 22, 2015. This peaceful protest was in support of releasing the human rights activists detained during the Pope's visit to Cuba. Hugo Damián has been held since October 25, 2015 within a ruthless system meant to suppress all sense of human rights.
