The son of Samuel Pupo Martínez, a self-employed person who was sentenced to seven years in prison for his participation in the 11J protests, sent a heartbreaking letter to his father.
The 13-year-old boy should have gone to visit him in prison last Friday, but as he himself explains in the letter, he could not go because he was sick with the flu and his lungs were inflamed.
“Tomorrow my son will not be able to see his father. He has written this letter to him. Until when will so many families be suffering for the simple fact of wanting FREEDOM and a better life for all. ENOUGH OF INJUSTICE!” Yuneisy expressed on her Facebook wall Santana González, wife of Samuel.
Hugh, the couple’s son, tells his father that, although he is in better health, he cannot go outside because of the heavy rains.
“I miss you so much and I ask God every night to take care of you in that ugly place, that no one looks for trouble for you and brings you back home,” the minor writes.
Next, he remembers that tests start next week and he would like Samuel to be home to help him study.
“Mom is very sad and she doesn’t stop working, and I help her with everything as you asked me, now I’m the man of the house. I look because I think it’s you. I love you very much and I miss you. It’s been a long time, “confesses the boy.
In another post, Santana reported that this week his son had a fever of 40 and pain throughout his body, and when he was taken to the hospital, the pediatrician confirmed that he had influenza with a little reinforcement in the lungs.
Until when Cubans!!!. I had my child with a fever of 40, pain throughout the body. I took him to the hospital and the pediatrician, after seeing the tests, confirmed that it was influenza, with a little reinforcement in the lungs. But how is it normal: mom there is no antibiotic, she needs azithromycin and paracetamol, which you can get, nor was there a thermometer in a Pediatric Guard Corps. I had to resort to Facebook at a crazy price. Yesterday I had a parent meeting and the teacher asks for disposable sheets for the final tests, because there aren’t any. Lame.. !!!. UNTIL WHERE!!!!. Where is the medical power and free education in this country? DPEPDPE. And my husband has been unjustly imprisoned since 11j for protesting, diabetic, with scleroderma (degenerative disease) and I also have to take him his medication. Freedom!
Samuel Pupo Martínez, 47, a resident of Cárdenas, was arrested on July 11 and has remained in the Agüica maximum severity prison ever since, despite suffering from serious health problems.
That day, during the peaceful demonstrations, he climbed on top of an overturned car and shouted “Down with communism! Homeland and Life!” Very close to the Party headquarters in the municipality.
For this reason, the Prosecutor’s Office accused him of having led the protests and the court sentenced him to seven years in prison, for the crimes of contempt and public disorder.
Pupo has a degree in Mathematics and Computing, and at the time of entering prison he was working autonomously.
