The Lion’s Den

26 Jun

In each province there is a building guarded by soldiers standing at attention who say they are defending the security of the Cuban state, but by force of clubs, laying traps, and other kinds of blackmail.

In Holguin it is located on Agramonte Street between Maceo and Libertad.

The images you see today are the Lily Fashion building, a popular store. The shop is on the ground floor but on the upper floors is housed the dark offices where orders are issued to torture freely in prisons, arrest protesters in the city and other places, confiscate mobile phones and computers and deny exit permits to doctors, teachers, or opponents who want to freely travel the world.

These offices are under lock and key, and are accessed only with an ID card or a damn password, testimony to the oppression and humiliation the people have suffered for fifty years.
