Our friend dr. Darsi Ferrer (whose humanitarian work among the poor can be seen here), has received death threats from a state security agent who entered his house on December 6, to warn him not to participate to the peaceful demonstration he and other dissidents organized against the official tourist and medical Apartheid policy and scheduled for tomorrow in Havana, on the occasion of the International Human Rights Day. The thug told Darsi: “If you go there, you’ll be in the wrong place in the wrong time, because you’re going to kill you”. Darsi and his wife Yusnaimy Jorge were joined by another independent journalist and some neighbors and together they chased the agent, who ran away immediately. Then, he and his wife went to a police station and told another agent: “We came here because we want you to kill us right now, and not in front of our son. Kill us right now, please.” . The agent replied: “No, we’re not going to kill you…for now”. Darsi’s wife yelled “killers!” at the agent. Then, he has been summoned to appear before the military committee tomorrow morning. He said he expects the march to be repressed by the violent mob, but said he’s ready even to die and tomorrow he’ll lead the rally in Havana. Babalu has the full report in English here, including a copy of the summons.
