HeAlas Tensas Gender Observatory (OGAT) confirmed this Thursday thefeminicide of a Cuban mother murdered by her ex-partner in Sibanicú, Camagüey, last Monday, March 25, also warned about two attempted murders against women on the Island.

Through a publication on the social network X, Alas Tensas, claimed to have verified the feminicide of “Yudeisi Pedroza, 45 years old, which happened in his home on March 25, in Sibanicú, Camagüey, at the hands of his ex-partner.”

Yudeisi was the mother of two children, one of them eight years old., and his death caused great consternation in the town of Hatuey, where he lived.

Although it does not specify the particularities of the attempted feminicides, the organization denounces five cases that require further police investigation, which occurred to an elderly woman in the town of Esperanza, province of Villa Clara; another to a Cuban named Irma, resident in Havana.

They also list Teresa Moliner Bosa, from the Cuban capital; to the Santiago residents Tania Reyes, and Samantha (Sami) Heredia Odrens.

With this data, the updated information of Alas Tensas, So far in 2024, there have been 15 femicides in Cuba, two attempted murders of women and there are 5 cases that need access to police investigation..

In addition, they added that alerts are being investigated in Manzanillo, Ciego de Ávila, Havana and Artemisa.

A week ago,Cuban feminist platforms had confirmed two new cases of feminicide occurred between the end of February and mid-March, which brought the number of events of this type to 14.

In that occasion,the two victims were elderly.

Despite these data, the regime denies the femicides and alleges that they are a "media construction."

According to Miguel Díaz-Canel, the term feminicide indicates alleged state inaction in the face of gender-based violent acts, "a media construction completely foreign to Cuban reality," she stated categorically in her closing speech at the congress of the Federation of Cuban Women (FMC).

Even on the official television programWe make Cuba, of the Caribbean Channel, with the aim of cleaning up the work of the Cuban police, the regime's spokesman Humberto López said that there is a "fairly generalized perception that in recent times crimes associated with violence have increased" and he blamed the networks for being channels for reporting these events.

However,The reactions among Cubans did not wait, showing their dissatisfaction with the manipulation exercised in that Cuban Television broadcast.

Precisely, for a Cuban it was striking how they did not address the issue of femicides. “And they didn't even touch on the issue of the number of murdered women, Humberto didn't even ask that, not if I took an insult that I asked my husband if there was no phone to call there, what a lack of respect they are,” she said in a public Facebook group.
