    14ymedio, Manzanillo, 22 November 2014 – This morning several activists
    reported an act of repudiation against the members of the Community
    Network of Journalists and Communicators in the eastern city of Manzanillo.

    According to the testimony of those whom this newspaper had access,
    Leonardo Cancio had organized a celebration in his home for a
    six-year-old niece and invited his colleagues from the Network. From the
    previous day, there were several women surrounding the house, whom the
    activists said were summoned by State Security, to communicate that they
    would not allow “a party for children organized by the
    counterrevolution,” and they also visited the homes of neighbors to warn
    them not to send their children to such an activity.

    Since the early hours a crowd, estimated by the Network to be some three
    hundred people, surrounded Cancio’s house to block access to the guests.
    However, some activists like Tania de la Torre, accompanied her daughter
    and granddaughter, had managed to arrive well in advance. De la Torre
    explained that “the State Security agents names Alexis and Julio” on
    seeing them leave the house, “pushed us into the crowd” where they were
    beaten and threatened with future retaliation.

    In statements given to 14ymedio by Martha Beatriz Roque, leader of this
    group of independent journalists, the dissident commented that, “this is
    the Cuba that the Spanish Foreign Minister Margallo is coming to visit,
    where human rights are trampled without consideration.”
