Detained Cuban opponent has been on hunger strike for more than a week

Cuban opponent and former political prisoner Ezequiel Morales Carmenate has been on hunger strike for more than a week at the Las Tunas police criminal investigation unit.

According to information provided by several Cuban activists, the Cuban opponent is charged with the alleged crime of “disrespect” after deciding to take to the streets of the island to demonstrate on the occasion of the 1st anniversary of the July 11 protests.

Likewise, repressive authorities of the Castro regime have alleged that Morales Carmenate failed to comply with a warning letter he signed some time ago.

“Former political prisoner Ezequiel Morales Carmenate continues to be detained on his eighth day of hunger strike in the police unit for police instruction in Las Tunas, charged with contempt, according to agent José Miner for going out on the streets on July 11 and signing a warning letter with Patria y Vida,” he wrote in his profile on Facebook Cuban dissident Vladimir Martin.

“Enough injustice and repression against peaceful opponents and the Cuban people,” added Martin, who also called for the freedom of all Cuban political prisoners.

It is important to mention that, within the framework of the first anniversary of July 11 (11J), the Cuban Observatory for Human Rights (OCDH) reported more than a hundred repressive actions orchestrated by the authorities of the Castro regime.

The OCDH specified that among the main targets of the regime’s repression on July 11 were the relatives of the 11J demonstrators.
