Castro’s brutal thugs have grabbed Dr. Darsi Ferrer Ramirez, Director of Health and Human Rights Center in Cuba.


The worst has happened. Castro’s brutal thugs have grabbed Dr. Ferrer Ramirez, one of the most courageous of dissidents in Cuba, and known too many of us because he sends daily reports of what's happening in Cuba at his own peril. I consider him a sterling source of information.

Her ex-wife Yusnaimy Jorge Sosa sent us an E- mail stating the following:
Yesterday in the early hours, 2.30 am, Dr. Darsi Ferrer Ramirez, was arrested arbitrarily by about 50 members of the Political Police, dressed as policemen, without shields, in 12 police cars.

With guns drawn, they loudly knocked on the door. He was immediately handcuffed and takes, without pants, shoes or a shirt, who knows where. They left our 5-year-old son alone in the house, because I was with my mother, who was feeling ill, at her house
Darsi told them that our son was alone and asked that he be allowed to take him (son) with them. They paid no attention to him. But, before leaving, they turned on the gas and closed the door. Thanks to the help of some neighbors, who quickly went to find me, we were able to break a window, enter, and rescue the child still alive.

The whereabouts of Darsi were unknown until 6:11am, when an official from the Ministry of Interior arrive to tell me where (in which unit) he was detained. At approximately 8 am he was released.

At this moment, around 1:00 pm,Dr.Darsi Ferrer Ramirez was arbitrarily arrested again on the corner of the Interests Office, which he was about to enter. Giving no explanation, he was taken away again. I am now going to look for him and hope to find him in a unit and not in another place. I’m sending this message to inform you that I, Yusnaimy Jorge Sosa, hold responsible and accuse the government, the National Security and everyone who was involved in this attempt to murder my son, Dariel Ferrer Jorge, who is only 5 years old, and my husband, Darsi Ferrer Ramirez.

Our good friend Dr. Darsi Ferrer in Havana has told what happened to him when police arrested him by using the force and attempted to assassinate his son. “It’s high time for the opposition, both inside and outside, to put the few political differences aside and join to bury once for all this regime. I call on every goodwill people not to cooperate with the regime and to practice civil desobedience.” . One of the many reasons for which he was brutally detained was because he had put some signs in his Santo Suarez neighborhood (Havana) reeading: “Change”. He reiterates his will to fill the city with such signs. “Signs with the word Change must be put in all the public places”.

“Sí. Quiero hacer un llamado a la unidad de los cubanos, me refiero a todos los cubanos residentes en la isla y en el exilio, y en especial a todos los lideres de la oposición, para que asimilen con claridad que ahora es cuando se necesita de su liderazgo, encausando la vanguardia de la desobediencia civil pacífica. Deben incentivar a no cooperar de ninguna manera con las actividades represivas del régimen, y motivar a la población con acciones precisas y concretas. Pegando pegatinas como esas de CAMBIO en lugares públicos, y sacando a sus vecinos de la letanía y la indiferencia. Y llamo al exilio a que nos apoyen y a todas las organizaciones que luchan por la democratización de Cuba, tanto las de adentro como de las de afuera de la isla, para que acaben con las diferencias por simples que sean, y a luchar juntos. Mi principal mensaje es que el cambio está en cada uno de nosotros los cubanos. Fidel Castro tiene que abandonar el poder ya, y no puede aceptarse una sucesión del castrismo”.

Me dí cuenta del tiempo que había pasado y me esperaba lo peor referente a esté médico y eso quería saber que había pasado con las personas de los artículos que había leído.

La página ya la tengo en mis favoritos para seguir leyendo y enterandome de las cosas que allí siguen sucediendo, pero la verdad no he llegado a lo de la detención que me menciona, pero tal como se planteaba que no tiene porque ser, imaginaba lo peor. Le hago saber que me indigna todo esto que leí en su página, lo del Dr. Ferrrer y la manera que han sido acosados, bajo mi punto de vista no hay derechos, pero parece ser que en Cuba existen todos para hacer de la vida de estás personas lo que se les antoja.
