Cuba: Castro political police arrests ten Ladies in White to prevent them from attending church services

The vicious and unending repression of the Cuban dictatorship against the island's peaceful human rights activists continues unabated. Cuban independent journalist Jose Daniel Ferrer Garcia filed a report from Cuba last night detailing the arrest yesterday in Santiago de Cuba of ten Ladies in White by the political police of the Castro regime. The arrests were made to prevent the human rights activists from attending church services today.

Ferrer reports that the Cuban dictatorship's repressive operation, which commenced at noon Saturday, also included the forced return of another eight members of the Ladies in White who were traveling from different parts of the country to join their compatriots at church services today. Those women were intercepted by Castro political police agents, forcibly removed from the transports they were traveling on, and sent back to their respective cities.

Listen to Ferrer's report at Habalo sin Miedo.
