Diaz had been in jail since Saturday, and Caballero had been in custody since Thursday. At one point Saturday, a secret police official had even denied that Caballero had been in arrested, which as independent journalist and blogger Luis Rojas noted is how they disappear you in Cuba.
The Castro dictatorship does not discriminate: It targets all who oppose it, whether they are men or women, with the vilest forms of repression. But it does appear in recent days to have particular disdain for the women who dare to challenge its authority.
In addition to what happened to Caballero and Dias, former pollitical prisoner Jorge Luis Garcia Perez "Antunez" reported Sunday via Twitter that his wife Yris continues to suffer symptoms of an apparent concussion suffered when she was beaten and arrested by Cuban police last week during an event held to honor Tamayo's murdered son, Orlando Zapata Tamayo, and other prisoner of conscience who died after a hunger strike, Pedro Luis Boitel.
