Independent librarian fired from government job

HAVANA, Cuba, March 23 (Aini Martín Valero, ALAS, www.cubanet.org) -
José Ignacio Oropesa Almora says he was fired from his job as a truck
driver for the state oil company because he's an independent librarian.

He said his superior at Cuba Petróleo (CUPET) told him at the beginning
of the month that he should resign because he was not a reliable worker.

He said on several occasions when driving a truck he was filmed by state
investigators obviously trying to document improper behavior. He said
stickers carrying dissident saying "Cambio" (Change) appeared at the oil

Oropesa Almora works at an independent library on Vía Blanca in the
Bahía district of eastern Havana.
