Antúnez is released from jail

After a night in jail, human rights activist Jorge Luís García Pérez “Antúnez” and his wife, Iris Pérez Aguilera, were freed to return to their home Tuesday morning, according to a report posted at Bitácora Cubana. They had been arrested a day earlier, after they tried to attend a ceremony commemorating the 155th birthday of José Martí.

While they were in jail, a group of 11 dissidents gathered outside the police station in Villa Clara, demanding their release. For their efforts, some were beaten and most were robbed by a pro-Castro mob. Some were arrested, and were still being held, according to the report.
