51st Sunday in a Row: Ladies in White Arrested in Cuba

For the 51st Sunday in a row, members of The Ladies in White were harassed and arrested by the Castro regime as they tried to attend Mass.

The Ladies in White are a pro-democracy group composed of the wives, mothers, daughters, sisters and other relative of Cuban political prisoners.

Among those arrested in the province of Matazans were Asunción Carrillo Hernàndez, Mayra Garcìa, María Teresa Castellano Valido, Leticia Ramos Herreria, Yamila Sendra Ruiz and Katiuska Rodríguez Rives.

Meanwhile, according to 14ymedio, 76 Ladies in White peacefully marched after Mass through Havana's 5th Avenue.

However, six of Havana's Ladies in White were arrested, along with blogger Agustín López and opposition activist Damián Prieto.
