The violence, brutality, and repression seen in Cuba in 2012 continues into 2013. Yesterday, as the peaceful human rights group the Ladies in White tried to attend their usual Sunday church services, they were once again intercepted by agents of Cuban State Security, brutally beating the defenseless women with belts and pointing guns at their heads.
The Ladies in White: Belted, Threatened to Death and Arrested
Every Sunday, The Ladies in White, a pro-democracy organization composed of the female relatives of current and former political prisoners, attempt to attend Mass as a group.And every Sunday, they they are brutalized by the Castro regime’s secret police for attempting to do so.Today, over 35 of the Ladies in White were intercepted, beaten with belts, threatened to death by agents aiming guns at them and temporarily arrested.The leader of The Ladies in White, Berta Soler, has correctly denounced this as “state terrorism.”
More “reform” you can’t believe in.
