Vladimiro Roca Under Siege

Dissident Vladimiro Roca, president of the Social Democrat Party of Cuba, is under siege inside his house "courtesy" of a major repudiation act currently being conducted.

Roca had planned a meeting at "his" home (b/c there is no such thing as private property in Cuba) with other dissident members of the "Todos Unidos" coalition. Around a dozen dissidents has planned to meet at noon today. "Todos Unidos" coalition meets periodically to evaluate the situation of political prisoners and their families in Cuba and denounce the Human Rights violations.

Currently his home is surrounded by about a hundred people participating in this repudiation act, blocking the entrance to the house and not allowing anyone to come in or exit the property.
