Independent librarian detained over children's party

Independent librarian detained over children's party
CUBANET

HAVANA, Cuba, Jan. 8(Julio Beltrán, Agencia Libre Asociada /
www.cubanet.org) – Independent librarian Ileana Margarita Pérez says she
was detained by police on Three Kings Day and questioned during an
eight-hour period.

"I was submitted to an interrogation only because I had organized a
Three Kings Day party for children in my neighborhood," she said. "I was
warned that such seasonal things were prohibited in Cuba because they're
capitalist."

Besides being the director of the Héctor Riverón Independent Library,
Pérez is a delegate of the dissident Latin American Federation of Rural
Women, known as FLAMUR, its Spanish acronym.

She said one of the agents told here, "There's a file on you for being
antisocial and, if you don't know it, there are jails for problematic
women like you."
