Cuba: After arrest on Easter Sunday, Lady in White and husband face trial on bogus charges

Via Uncommon Sense:

Cuban Lady In White Gallardo, husband to stand trial on bogus charge after Easter Sunday arrest

Hgallardo220414_0Haydeé Gallardo Salazar

Cuban Lady In White Haydeé Gallardo Salazar and her husband Ángel Figueredo Castellón will stand trial Thursday on a charge of "disrespect," after they were arrested Easter Sunday on their way to Mass, according to Diario de Cuba.

They were released six hours after they were arrested. However, they were summoned back to a jail, where they have been held since.

Berta Soler, head of the Damas De Blanco, or "Ladies In White," said her membership will rally in support of the couple.

"They asked for milk for children, food for the people of Cuba and shouted, 'Down with Fidel.' We will go Thursday to the court to yell the same," Soler said.

Other activists recently jailed include Vicente Coll Campanioni, Julio González Díez and Lázaro Yosvani Montesinos Hernández, members of the Committee for Political Prisoners and Families (CAPPF), who were arrested April 18 after a protest in a Havana park.

Montesinos Hernández has started a hunger strike, according to the report.

Andrés Pérez Suárez, leader of CAPFF, said authorities told him the activists face prosecution on various charges.
