UK Guardian claims ‘dark days’ in Cuba are ‘fading’ as State Security violently arrests women and children

The video below shows the violent arrest last week of three innocent women and their children by Cuban State Security simply because the women were members of the Ladies in White, an all-female human rights organization in Cuba made up of relatives of political prisoners:

Via Translating Cuba: This video was made in Holguin in eastern Cuba on 3 January. The Ladies in White arrested were: Liudmilla Sanchez, Maidolis Leiva and Ruht Laborde. The filmer (or someone standing next to him/her) is shouting “Down with Communism”

Meanwhile, the UK's Guardian runs an article with this despicable headline complete with a propaganda photo no doubt approved by the propaganda ministry of Cuba's apartheid dictatorship:

Cuba: memories of Havana's dark days fade as capital of revolution embraces change

A new generation of Cubans never knew Fidel Castro's glory guerrilla days; with Marxism-Leninism sidelined, they are benefiting from an opening up of the economy and a mood of cautious optimism

Tourists ride a 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air convertible on Havana’s seafront boulevard ‘El Malecón’.

Obviously, the only thing that is quickly "fading" if not completely gone in Cuba is the integrity and honesty of foreign journalists.
