You would think that by now, the Castro dictatorship would give up the ghost, and realize that none of their usual methods would stop Jorge Luis García Pérez "Antúnez".
Antúnez, his wife Iris Tamara Pérez Aguilera and a third dissident, Ernesto Medero Arozarena were arrested as they tried to visit the Havana headquarters of the illegal Pro-Human Rights Party of Cuba. They didn't have government permission to be in the capital, so they were taken to police stations near their respective hometowns.
Antúnez and his wife, who are more than used to this type of harassment by the secret police, were being held in Villa Clara, as police officials continue to "investigate" their case, according to Radio Martí.
I've lost count of how many times Antúnez has been detained since he was released from prison in April 2007 after more than 17 years. Arresting him has been a hard habit for the dictatorship to break, even after Antúnez has made clear he will not be cowed by their strong-armed tactics.
I guess the secret police have lost count, too.
