Nytt anti-regeringsklotter i Santiago de Cuba
SANTIAGO DE CUBA, 4 augusti
av Guillermo Espinosa
Despite the display of military might during the last few days in the city, two anti-government graffiti showed up Friday on a wall at the corner of Martí and San Félix Streets: one read ”Fidel your end has come at last,” and the other ”Fidel you should have died long before.”
Several dissidents in the city said as a result of the appearance of the signs they have been warned by security officials that they are being watched and should not leave their homes.
Troop movements have been evident in the city for the last three days, especially on the access roads to the city, where troop transports have been going back and forth. At the municipal park in Caney, the military have established a command post with two communications cars present, and at Puerto de Moya, several BTR Soviet-built tanks have taken up positions.
On the streets, men in civilian clothes can be seen displaying their side arms on street corners and uniformed police have been standing guard in public facilities, including even the parks.
