Breaking News from Martha Beatriz Roque

1 pm EST, 18 March 2014:

Por el Aniversario de la Primavera Negra las Damas de Blanco se reúnen en la sede de la calle Neptuno, pudieron llegar 54 mujeres y ya se han reportado 10 arrestadas hasta el momento aunque no hay comunicación con todas. Ya el régimen tiene montada una tarima para proferir insultos igual que siempre y está andando el mitin de repudio con mujeres y oficiales de la Seguridad del Estado parados frente a la casa.

Fifty-four Ladies in White were able to assemble at a house on Neptuno Street in Havana, to mark the anniversary of the Black Spring.  We have already received word that ten of them have been arrested, but we haven't been able to contact everyone in the group.  The government has assembled a mob to shout insults, just as always, and there is an act of repudiation in process, carried out by some women and officers of State Security who are laying siege to the house.
