Detentions of Dozens of Activists in Cuba

Press Statement

Jen Psaki
Department Spokesperson
Washington, DC
July 14, 2014

On Sunday Cuban authorities rounded up and detained over one hundred courageous members of the Damas de Blanco as they sought to peacefully commemorate the loss of life on the tugboat 13 de Marzo, sunk by the Cuban Government 20 years ago this past weekend.

We strongly condemn the Cuban Government’s continued use of this intimidation tactic to silence its critics and disrupt peaceful assembly.

We urge the Government of Cuba to end these practices and respect the universal human rights of the Cuban people.
