    The Regime Releases Activist After 46 Days On Hunger Strike

    The Regime Releases Activist After 46 Days On Hunger Strike
    Posted on June 21, 2015

    DiariodeCuba.com, Vladimier Ortiz Suarez, Havana, 21 June 2015 — The
    human rights activist Rolando Perez Morera Yusef was released on
    Thursday after 46 days on hunger strike to protest his imprisonment.

    Pérez Morera, 37, is in very deplorable state of health. Despite being
    released, his freedom is not complete as they have imposed a fine of one
    thousand dollars and he continues to await trial.

    The activist was arrested on May 2 in San Antonio de los Baños,
    Artemisa, while collecting signatures in support of the Emilia Project,
    which is led by Oscar Elias Biscet, former political prisoner of the
    Group of 75; the Project seeks the establishment of a rule of law in Cuba.

    According to Pérez Morera’s version, he was led into the interior of the
    house of the head of the political police of the town, and then charged
    with “violation of domicile.”

    The regime opponent was later transferred to the police station of San
    Cristobal, in the province of Pinar del Rio, where he began his hunger
    strike.

    The authorities have changed the accusation of “violation of domicile,”
    and are now accusing him of a “crime against State Security.”

    In these types of “crimes” the regime typically includes those actions
    it deems “enemy propaganda.”

    Oscar Elias Biscet confirmed in his Twitter account the release of Perez
    Morera. “he is very thin, but strong spiritually and morally,” he said.
