Sunday of repression in Cuba as dozens of peaceful human rights activists are threatened and arrested

It does not take much for Cuba's Castro dictatorship to feel threatened. Even a peaceful and silent march by women dressed in white on a Sunday morning after church can trigger a violent crackdown. And so was the case in several cities in Cuba yesterday as the 2005 Sakharov Prize awarded human rights group, the Ladies in White, attended church services as they do every Sunday and attempted to peacefully march in public. In Castro's Cuba, however, this is considered a crime against the state and warrants immediate action by armed thugs to quash the gathering. According to reports from the island, dozens of dissidents, many of them Ladies in White, were threatened and violently arrested by State Security forces yesterday simply for gathering together for Sunday worship.

How feeble and scared is the Castro regime in Cuba? Take a good look at the photo above. Those are the Ladies in White the Cuban dictatorship so desperately fears.

Uncommon Sense has the rundown of the violent repression in Cuba yesterday as reported from the island on social media.
