Busy weekend of repression in Cuba for Castro State Security

The “State Security” forces described by Babalu Blog include the Directorate of Counterintelligence (DCI), the National Revolutionary Police (PNR), and the Committee for the Defense of the Revolution (CDRs).  The DCI, the most repressive of Havana’s five intelligence services, is the lead organization tasked with ensuring domestic stability.  The police openly collaborate with the DCI, as do the CDRs, which are de facto neighbor snitch programs.  By some estimates, up to 10% of the Cuban population serve as CDR informants.  [For more information, see http://www.cubaverdad.net/cdr.htm]
