AUTHORITIES URGE REBUILDING OF RAPID RESPONSE BRIGADES By Juan Carlos Martínez, Cuba Free Press.

HAVANA - The government's paramilitary "Rapid Response" brigades may soon return to the Cuban scene according to a reliable source who participated in a meeting at his workplace along with militants from the Communist Youth and government officials.

At this meeting, administrators of these political organizations asked their workers to form brigades of "rapid response" that would have as their first objective to "convince" possible illegal emigrants to do otherwise. Because the authorities are intent on meeting this goal, the members of the organization have been authorized to use force in convincing emigrants to stay.

The governments of the United States and Cuba have reiterated their firm position on impeding illegal emigration from the island.
