Take Action: Over
35 50 Ladies in White Arrested – Updated
Update: Hablemos Press press is reporting that over the last 48 hours, 50 members of the Laura Pollen Ladies in White group have been arrested to prevent them from attending a meeting and Sunday Mass. The regime continues to fear the women of Cuba who wear white.
More Castro thuggery: Yoani Sanchez reports that they've cut off the mobile phones of Roberto Guerra, @HablemosPress, and his wife who reported the above update.
The Castro regime has arrested over 35 Ladies in White over the weekend for trying to attend a gathering of the pro-democracy group in Havana.
According to former political prisoner Ivan Hernandez Carrillo, 12 of those known to be arrested are from Santiago de Cuba, 7 from Holguin, 2 from Granma, 2 from Guantanamo, 4 from Santa Clara and one from Matanzas. Seven are from Havana.
We plead with women's rights groups throughout to world to raise their voices for these courageous women, who simply seek the freedom to assemble and speak freely -- the most basic of all human rights.
And for this, they are confronted with unspeakable violence and abuse.
