It is Forbidden to Name a Baby “Antunez”

It is Forbidden to Name a Baby "Antunez"
Posted on October 19, 2013

CAMAGÜEY, Cuba, October 18, 2013, Fernando Vázquez Guerra / Cuban
Network of Community Spokespeople / On October 15 at
3:00 in the afternoon, Yudeici Rondón Villavicencio, who is the Delegate
from the Rosa Park Feminist Movement, was beaten with her newborn child
in her arms by two members of the political police in the Ana Betancourt
Maternity Hospital in Camaguey, where she had been admitted. One of the
attackers is the Psychologist of State Security known as Claudia and the
other was Angel Eduardo Guadarrama, nicknamed Carlos.

For several days, Yudeici has maintained a social difference with the
State Security because she wants to name her son Jorge Luis Antunez and
this repressive body will not agree to it. Now, the regime wants to take
away a parent's right to name their newborn child. Yudeici responded
that it is that name or none, so the baby left the hospital without
being registered.

Jorge Luis García Pérez (Antúnez) is the name of a prominent human
rights activist living in the center of the island, who served several
years in prison for his activism.

If you want to support Yudeici, the telephone number of the hospital
board is: 5332297511, extension 1089.
