Another Sunday of violent repression in Cuba
This Monday morning once again brings news of another Sunday in Cuba rife with violent repression.
Attacks Against The Ladies in White Intensify
The Castro regime's repression against the peaceful democracy group, The Ladies in White, intensified this weekend.

Over 200 of The Ladies in White marched together to attend Mass and other gatherings throughout Cuba's biggest cities.
In Santiago de Cuba, state security officials attacked the home of Maria Elena Matos, where over 57 of The Ladies in White had gathered for a "literary tea."

Santa Fernandez Diaz and Keylan Ramos Suarez remain detained.
In Matanzas, the following Ladies in White were arrested: Sayli Navarro, Asuncion Carrillo, Lazara Rodriguez, Yanelis Perez, Tania Echeverria, Maria Teresa Castellanos y Mayra Garcia.
Pro-democracy leaders Angel Moya, Ivan Hernandez Carrillo y Felix Navarro, who had gone to support The Ladies in White, were also arrested and dumped in a swamp over 50 kilometers away.
