CUBAN RESISTANCE ASSEMBLY DENOUNCES SUMMARY JUDGMENT AND POLITICAL PRISON SENTENCE OF TWO CUBAN RESITANCE ACTIVISTS OF FRENTE NACIONAL DE RESISTENCIA CÍVICA ORLANDO ZAPATA TAMAYO AND ALIANZA DEMOCRÁTICA ORIENTAL
By Assembly of the Resistance

Miami, November 6th, 2015. Asamblea de la Resistencia Cubana. The Asamblea de la Resistencia Cubana (Cuban Resistance Assembly) condemns Raul Castro and his regime for imposing the summary judgment and unjust political prison sentence of six months to human rights activists of the Cuban resistance Geovanys Izaguirre Hernandez and Laudelino Rodriguez Mendoza, members of Frente Nacional de Resistencia Cívica Orlando Zapata Tamayo (Frente OZT) (the National Front of Civic Resistance Orlando Zapata Tamayo (Front OZT)) and members of La Alianza Democrática Oriental (ADO) (the Oriental/Eastern Democratic Alliance (ADO)) in Palma Soriano, Santiago de Cuba province. The General Coordinator of the ADO, Rolando Rodriguez Lobaina said: "Geovanys Izaguirre Hernandez and Laudelino Rodriguez Mendoza were arbitrarily arrested yesterday, taken to the police station in the city of Palma [Soriano] where in the morning both received summary judgments and sentenced to six months in political prison, according to information the military gave to the wife of Geovanys Hernandez Izaguirre. This case comes as a result of failing to pay a fine of $2,000.00CUC pesos that were imposed on both activists when they were blamed for anti-government graffiti that appeared in the city of Palma Soriano. We must take into account that in the past these activists were brutally beaten by the Castro regime when they were defending a group of families that were being unjustly evicted from their homes and the population sided with these activists against the totalitarian authorities”. The Asamblea de la Resistencia Cubana calls on international human rights organizations and democratic countries around the world to take into account this complaint and demands for the immediate release of Geovanys Izaguirre Hernandez and Laudelino Rodriguez Mendoza. ###
