Castro regime arrests more than 30 dissidents celebrating Palm Sunday and start of Holy Week

Cuba's peaceful human rights group the Ladies in White and other dissidents set out yesterday to celebrate Palm Sunday and the start of the Holy Week.

More than 30 anti-Castro activists arrested in Cuba on Palm Sunday

Holy Week started in Cuba on Sunday with the arrests of at least three dozen "Ladies In White" and other anti-Castro activists in several towns and cities in the eastern end of the island, according Martinoticias.com.

Nonetheless, more than 100 other activists were able to make it to Palm Sunday services, according to Jose Daniel Ferrer Garcia, coordinator of the Patriotic Union of Cuba, one of the leading opposition groups on the island and whose activists are frequently targeted by the Castro regime.

Ferrer said police detained several Ladies In White, or "Damas De Blanco," in Bayamo, Santiago de Cuba, Gibara and Holguín.

Via Twitter, activist Ivan Hernandez Carrillo reported that like every Sunday for the past nine months or so, police targeted Damas De Blanco and other activists in Colon and other cities in Matanzas province.
