"Cuba is no longer the one we knew yesterday. Yesterday, everyone was hiding, while today, they manifest themselves in public."

Yris Tamara Aguilera Pérez was born on August 20, 1975 in the province of Tabasco in Cuba. Already since she was five years old, she was rebelling against the Communist regime, but her definitive connection to the opposition came in 1999, after having met the activist Berta Antúnez. At the same time, she also met her future husband, governmental opponent Jorge Luis García Pérez, known as "Antúnez". Since then, she has lived numerous arrests, and several times she went on hunger strike in prison. Yris has a son, who does not belong to the Cuban opposition, however, he supports his mother's counterrevolutionary activities. In spite of the oppression that Yris is suffering by the governmental regime, she still lives in Cuba, and works as director of the Rosa Parks Feminist Movement for Civil Rights.
