Residents evicted to expand dairy
HAVANA, Cuba - June 21 (Ahmed Rodríguez Albacia, Jóvenes sin Censura /
www.cubanet.org) - Housing officials aided by police evicted the
occupants of 14 houses in the Boyeros municipality of Havana June 16.
Critics charged the whole purpose of the move was to expand an adjacent
dairy and that the displaced families did not have a place to go.
The officials involved, including the municipal first secretary of the
Communist Party, the local police chief and the president of the Popular
Council were accompanied by six police cars.
A local human rights activist said the families had been living in the
houses for approximately eight years and reiterated that they did not
have alternative housing available to them.
