Miami, Florida. Directorio Democrático Cubano. 4 de marzo del 2016. El Directorio Democrático Cubano  denuncia la sanción de prisión política a que han sido condenados los activistas de la resistencia cubana, Alexander Palacio Reyes y Felipe Martínez Companioni, a cinco y ocho años respectivamente,  el día 2 de marzo del presente, en el Tribunal Provincial de Camagüey. Ambos son miembros del Movimiento Pro Democrático Pedro Luís Boitel y Frente Nacional de Resistencia Cívica Orlando Zapata Tamayo.

“Ayer las casas de los activistas en Camagüey estaban vigiladas y el Tribunal Provincial en el reparto Previsora, estaba acordonado de militares con el objetivo que nadie pudiera entrar al juicio de nuestros hermanos. Los militares hicieron correr una noticia mediática en la población, diciendo que le estaban celebrando un juicio a dos terroristas y por eso tenían la zona militarizada,” denunció Alexander Pérez Aguilar, presidente del Movimiento Pro Democrático Pedro Luís Boitel.

Los activistas fueron llevados presos a la cárcel de Cerámica Roja, desde diciembre del 2015, por el solo hecho de arrojar volantes con literatura antigubernamental y donde se declararon en huelga de hambre exigiendo su libertad. Como castigo fueron trasladados a la prisión de mayor rigor conocida como “Kilo 8” en la provincia camagüeyana.

El Directorio Democrático Cubano denuncia esta injusta prisión y exhorta a las organizaciones derechos humanos y a la comunidad internacional en general, a exigir la libertad inmediata de los activistas de la resistencia cubana, Alexander Palacio Reyes y Felipe Martínez Companioni.


The Democratic Cuban Directorate "Directorio" denounces the prison terms which have been given to political activists of the Cuban Resistance, Alexander Palacio Reyes and Felipe Martinez Companioni, five years and eight years respectively, on March 2, 2016. Both are members of the Pedro Luis Boitel Pro- Democracy Movement and Orlando Zapata Tamayo National Civic Resistance Front.

"Yesterday the homes of the activists in Camaguey were under surveillance and the province tribunal in the neighborhood of Previsoraby the military. The military kept everyone out of the tribunal, making public announcements that two terrorists were on trail and therefore the entire zone was militarized", denounced Alexander Perez Aguilar, President of the Pedro Luis Boitel Pro-Democracy Movement.

The activists were originally placed in prison this past December for distributing literature considered "anti governmental". They were both placed in the Cereamica Roja jail where they declared themselves on hunger strike and demanded to be released. As punishment, they were both taken to the maximum security prison "Kilo 8," in the province of Camaguey.

The Cuban Democratic Directorate "Directorio" denounces these unjust imprisonments and calls on Human Rights' organizations and the international community to demand the immediate liberty of Cuban Resistance activists, Alexander Palacio Reyes and Felipe Martinez Companioni.
