(en) Cuba, archico galatea FAI: Repression increases in Havana. The ABRA social center targeted by the police (ca, de, it, pt, tr)[machine translation]

Date Thu, 4 Aug 2022 10:06:16 +0300

Introduction, translation and note edited by Caterina Camastra ---- Boris M. Díaz is a Cuban comrade, member of the Taller Libertario Alfredo López and of the ABRA social center and library. On the first anniversary of the protests that shook Cuba on 11 July 2021, Boris was among the victims of the police siege and intimidation operation deployed by the Cuban dictatorship. It is worth mentioning that Boris suffers from muscle wasting and lives in a wheelchair, which highlights the utter squalid cowardice of a fascist state whose sole purpose is now to perpetuate itself in power. We report here the complaint released by Boris on social networks on July 17, 2022: ---- "On July 11, my home, the ABRA Social Center, was placed under surveillance. Two agents from the State Security Department and the almost personalized visit from Joel, also known publicly as Jordan, which I treated in the most normal way possible (even if he is a bullying cop, I refuse to dehumanize him a priori). I will not deny that he was kind, even cordial, which I paid back as a good host by inviting him to sit down for a coffee that he never accepted. I suppose he was pointing out his presence to me, like any movie gangster does to their victim. He gave a certain speech of honor, born from my observation that he practiced judo, which he acknowledged by claiming to be a black belt. He also stressed that he had never abused anyone (which was denied by multiple testimonies, including a video), so I couldn't help but smile and ask him if he really wanted to start a friendship with a lie. In all of this, my intention was to make the following points clear:
1 - The Department of State Security is guilty of the political crisis that the country is experiencing due to the repressive actions implemented by the Department itself against all forms of resistance.
2 - If he had continued to persecute people dear to me, I would have taken it as an indirect attack.
Joel / Jordan's persecution of Leo * has reached the level of public defamation in his neighborhood, with the aim of depriving him of community solidarity and making him vulnerable to attacks that may not be fortuitous and which, being committed by those who wear a uniform , constitute a crime. That's what happened today[July 17th]. I hold the Security Department responsible for any damage done to Leo[Leonardo was hit by an apparently drunk stranger with an iron rod]or to any other dex miex amicx. I hold Joel / Jordan responsible. I do not demand punishments, I pursue the dissemination of the facts so that this cowardly course of action cannot continue.

* Leonardo Romero Negrín, one of the victims of the 2021 repression that had more international resonance, including an open letter signed by personalities from the world of culture such as Noam Chomsky and Étienne Balibar. Even before "11J", on April 30, he had been arrested and fined for showing in public a sign saying "Socialism yes, repression no". On 11 July he was arrested again, beaten, and published a testimony on the abuses of police power he experienced and which he witnessed. To know more:
