UA 89/09 Fear for
safety









CUBA Jorge Luis García Pérez, usually known as Antúnez
(m), activist





Iris Tamara Pérez Aguilera (f), his wife



Carlos Michael Morales Rodriguez (m), journalist



Diosiris Santana Pérez (m)



Ernesto Mederos Arrozarena (m)






Activist
and political dissident Jorge Luis García Pérez, usually known as
Antúnez, began a hunger strike on 17 February, in protest at the
human rights situation in Cuba. Since 17 March, police and State
Security officers have surrounded his house, threatening him, his
wife Tamara Pérez Aguilera, Carlos Michael Morales, Diosiris
Santana Pérez and Ernesto Mederos Arrozarena who joined him in the
hunger strike. All five are in grave danger.






Antúnez and
his companions are carrying out their protest at his house, in the
town of Placetas, 300km east of the capital, Havana. They are
calling on the authorities to stop the "repression and torture" of
Antúnez'sbrother-in-law, Mario Alberto Pérez Aguilera, who
is imprisoned at Santa Clara Provincial Prison. They are also
calling for the release of political prisoners, the
ratification ofhuman rights treaties and provision of adequate
housing to all Cubans. On 15 March, with their health failing, the
group switched from a hunger strike to a restricted diet, eating
only fruit and drinking fruit juice.






Since 17
March, at least 20 state security and police officers have been
keeping guard in front of Antúnez’s house and have cordoned off the
street, stopping friends and relatives trying to visit Antúnez. No
one has been allowed to approach the house. Antúnez’s brother has
tried to visit him several times, and been detained every time.






According
to Antúnez, the officers keeping guard have shouted, "Antúnez, if
you don't quit this protest you're going to die" (Antúnez o te
mueres o suspendes esta protesta
). He told Amnesty
International that on the night of 25 March, pepper spray was fired
into the house through an open window. On other nights, thehouse
has been pelted with stones, and a pile of rubbish has been dumped
at the house entrance.






Carlos
Michael Morales and another man who had been taking part in the
hunger strike were arrested on 2 March at Placetas Hospital after
they went to seek medical treatment. Carlos Michael Morales was
given eight days' house arrest, after which he managed to return to
Antúnez's house to resume his protest.






Antúnez
told Amnesty International that "the siege to my home prevents us
from getting almost any of the provisions we need to continue our
fast, or any medicine" (Este asedio a mi vivienda impide que
podamos ya casi proveernos de los insumos necesarios para continuar
haciendo este ayuno liquido así como para adquirir
medicamentos
).






Antúnez is
a well-known dissident, who was released in April 2007 after 17
years in prison. He had been detained in 1990 and sentenced to five
years on a charge of "enemy propaganda." In May 1993 he was
sentenced to an overall total of 15 years' imprisonment on new
charges of "enemy propaganda," "attempted sabotage" and "illegal
possession of a weapon," all supposedly committed while he was
briefly at liberty afterescapingin October 1992. His sentence was
later increased for "attempted escape".







Rock
musician Ciro Díaz and photographer Claudio Fuentes went to
Placetas on 24 March to visit Antúnez, but were arrested,
apparently for "public disorder." They were both released without
charge the next day, and brought back to Havana by State Security
officials.





BACKGROUND INFORMATION









Freedom of
expression, assembly and association are severely limited in Cuba.
Those who attempt to express their views, organize meetings or form
organizations that contradict government policy or the aims of the
state are likely to be punished by imprisonment, loss of
employment, harassment or intimidation. Political dissidents are
routinely detained for around 24 hours, during which they are
interrogated.





RECOMMENDED ACTION: Please send appeals to
arrive as quickly as possible, in Spanish or your own
language:





- urging
the authorities to stop the harassment and intimidation of Antúnez,
Iris Tamara Pérez Aguillera, Carlos Michael Morales Rodriguez,
Diosiris Santana Pérez and Ernesto Mederos Arrozarena, and allow
them to come and go from their house freely, without fear of
reprisals or arbitrary detention;


- calling
on the authorities to allow those who want to visit them to do so
without harassment;


- calling
on the authorities to reform the laws, regulations and
administrative practices which curtail freedom of expression,
association and assembly.
