Their parents were the real targets, and they were released from custody after six hours. But the three youngest members of a Cuban family now know what it's like to be a political prisoner.
Armando Peraza Hernández, Mayelín Santiesteban López and their three children, Dairis, Brenni and Lázaro Armando, ages 11, 9 and 5, respectively, were arrested and detained on July 28. A Cuban secret policeman targeted the couple, who are independent librarians in San Cristóbal, Pinar del Rio, after the appearance in their neighborhood of signs proclaiming, "Down with Raul," according to a report from CIHPRESS.
Children are abused by the Castro dictatorship every day in Cuba. Just witness what happens every day in a Cuban school.
At least Dairis, Brenni and Lázaro Armando know they were targeted because the Castro regime fears what their parents are teaching them at home.
