Via Capitol Hill Cubans:

Over 70 Dissidents Arrested in Violent Raids

The Castro regime arrested over 70 democracy activists from the Cuban Patriotic Union (“UNPACU”), a leading opposition group in the eastern provinces.

The arrests took place as shock troops raided various UNPACU meeting points in Santiago. Dissidents were beaten with batons and bike-chains.
Meanwhile, in Palma Soriano, the authorities cracked down on dissidents who had peacefully gathered at a park to protest against the Castro regime’s repression.
More “reform” you can’t believe in.
