Activists from the Cuban Youth Movement for Democracy from the municipality of Velasco, located in the Eastern province of Holguin, carried out an activity regarding Democracy and Human Rights during the beginning of the month of April.

Yonart Rodríguez Ávila and George Luís Leyva Ferras, vice delegate in the East and of Gibara, respectively, organized the meeting which counted with the participation of more than a dozen youths.

During the activity, the members who were present denounced the unjust incarceration of Niurka Luque Alvarez, a member of CYMD who has been imprisoned in a punishment cell in the women’s prison known as “Manto Negro” (“Black Cloak”), for the sole reason of defending human rights.  The activists shouted and demanded “freedom for Niurka Luque, she is innocent”.

Rodriguez Avila also played a film for all the activists present as part of the Youth Video Club program which was designed to elevate the political culture among the new generations and to provide factual information about happenings in Cuba and in the world.
