14YMEDIO, Havana, 28 August 2014 – In an escalation that started weeks
ago, another member of the editorial board of Convivencia (Coexistence)
magazine has been summoned by the police. This Wednesday Javier Valdes
received a citation for the following day at 5:00 PM, at the National
Revolutionary Police (PNR) station in Pinar del Rio. Other notifications
were sent a couple of weeks ago to Karina Galvez, Juan Carlos Fernandez
and William Rodriguez, members of the editorial team and collaborators
on the independent publication.

Convivencia is a magazine created in the westernmost Cuban province,
that recently celebrated its sixth anniversary and 40 issues. Its topics
include culture, civil society, debates about the and politics,
but also cover pastoral and ethical issues. Since its inception, the
publication has been the object of police pressure and its director,
Dagoberto Valdes, has been treated especially aggressively in the
official media.

Pressures have also come from the General of the Republic, who
confiscated cameras and laptops from Karina Galvez and Juan Carlos
Fernández after a recent trip abroad.
