Ramos Herrería said members of a special forces unit known as the Black Wasps invaded the home of her daughter’s longtime friend in Cárdenas. She said the armed black-clad men hunted the young woman’s husband who had been involved in the protests.
“The husband was beaten to the ground ... There is a huge pool of blood in the room,” Ramos Herrería said adding the victim’s relatives believe he is dead and the couple has children ages 2 and 12.
She said “murderers” are attacking unarmed Cubans. The violence comes amid shortages of food and medicine and a lack of access to healthcare for COVID patients who are dying at home. She said they are out of fuel, gas, and now electricity. The crackdown also included disrupting internet connectivity.
“We are in a chaotic situation,” Ramos Herrería said adding there is a desperate need for humanitarian intervention.
