Violence is one of the constant perils faced by all dissidents in Cuba. And quite often — if not always– violence against dissidents can be traced directly to the island’s Castronoid oligarchy.

Such is the case with Mayra Arevich, the woman in charge of Castro, Inc.’s telecommunications monopoly, who has been fomenting violence against dissident Yoani Sanchez and other outspoken critics of the island’s repressive government.

Soon, let’s hope…
