Another Sunday of repression in Cuba

Sundays continue to be one of the most repressive days of the week for Cuba's opposition as the Castro dictatorship takes extraordinary measures to prevent dissidents from marching and the peaceful Ladies in White from attending church services.

Cuban dissident and independent journalist Jose Daniel Ferrer reports on some of the violent and repressive acts that took place yesterday in Cuba:

  • Andres Carrion, the dissident arrested and beaten when he yelled out "Down with communism!" during a papal mass in Cuba was once again arbitrarily arrested by Cuban State Security yesterday.
  • Four Ladies in White were arrested by political police in Palma Soriano. While three were later released, Lady in White Liudmila Rodriguez remains behind bars and the Castro official in charge of her detention has informed her that he was tired of having to deal with her and that he would manufacture criminal charges in order to ensure she is imprisoned and he can be rid of her.
  • In Holguin, dissident Jesus Diaz Morales remains jailed for a second day after being violently beaten and arrested by agents of Castro State Security.

Listen to Jose Daniel Ferrer's report (in Spanish) at Hablalo sin Miedo.
