Another Sunday of violent repression in Cuba: Peaceful Ladies in White brutally attacked again

In Matanzas, Cuba, yesterday marked the 34th consecutive Sunday in where the Ladies in White, peacefully and quietly marching together in support of their political prisoner husbands, sons, brothers, fathers, and grandfathers, were victims of another vicious and brutal attack by Cuban State Security thugs. The same violence took place all over the island and in different cities as well. Groups of Ladies in White joined together as they have done every Sunday for years now, and the apartheid Castro dictatorship responded to the challenge in the same way they have for decades: with violence and brutality.

Marc Masferrer from Uncommon Sense has a rundown of the violence in Cuba yesterday in a Storify compilation from Twitter.
