Cuban police violently arrested three regime opponents in the Havana
municipality of Marianao on Thursday August 16, while they were handing
out copies of the Citizen Demand For Another Cuba, according to the
digital newspaper Cubaencuentro.

Citizens Diosbel Suárez, Idalberto Acuña and Santiago Cardoso, members
of the Patriotic Union of Cuba, were beaten and pepper sprayed in the
place where they were promoting the text of the Demand, and were taken
to the Sixth Station of the National Police.

"They even repressed people who were filming the event or reading the
Demand," Antonio G. Rodiles told the digital newspaper Diario de Cuba;
Rodiles is the coordinator of the Estado de Sats project and one of the
promoters of the Demand.

The Demand, delivered in June to the National Assembly of People's
Power, calls for the ratification, by the Cuban government, of the
international pacts signed at the UN in 2008 and the implementation of
the "legal and political guarantees" of the Universal Declaration of
Human Rights.
