El Movimiento Cristiano LiberaciÃ³n (MCL), denunciÃ³ que policÃas del Gobierno cubano irrumpieron este martes en la vivienda de Roger Curbelo, en Puerto Padre, Las Tunas, y golpearon violentamente a los activistas que se encontraban reunidos para conmemorar el DÃa de los Derechos Humanos, mientras el presidente de Estados Unidos, Barack Obama, estrechaba la mano a RaÃºl Castro en SudÃ¡frica durante el funeral de Nelson Mandela.
LA HABANA (ACI) - "EstÃ¡n atacando la casa. Hay miles de policÃas. Les estÃ¡n dando de piÅ„azos a todos los de la casa. EstÃ¡n acabando con todo. EstÃ¡n dentro de la casa, rompieron la puerta, la ventana, todo. A todo el mundo que estÃ¡ dentro de la casa los estÃ¡n golpeando (.) son policÃas y civiles", denunciÃ³ una mujer en un audio difundido por el MCL.
Asimismo, en su sitio de Facebook, el movimiento fundado por Oswaldo PayÃ¡ alertÃ³ que hay "varios heridos sangrando en la casa, y varios detenidos, no cesa el acoso, les han cortado la electricidad"; mientras "cientos de sicarios vociferan en las calles alentados por las tropas especiales de la tiranÃa".
Por ello Curbelo criticÃ³ en otro audio que Obama salude a RaÃºl Castro en el funeral de Mandela, mientras "el pueblo de Cuba estÃ¡ ajeno, falto de derechos, sin libertad de opiniÃ³n de expresiÃ³n".
El movimiento disidente denunciÃ³ que al final de la agresiÃ³n, los agentes del Gobierno se llevaron detenido "a Armando PeÅ„a GuzmÃ¡n del MCL y Alexis Becerra, gestor del Proyecto Varela. Ambos estaban reunidos por el DÃa de los Derechos Humanos en la sede del MCL en Puerto Padre".
