Human Rights Activists in Santa Clara, Cuba arrested for walking down the street

For Cubans who live on the island, there are no government sponsored salsa dancing lessons, cigar factory tours, or enlightening encounters with local artists in art studios. All those excitingly close and personal activities are reserved for tourists only. But one of the activities the Castro government does offer its citizens is just as close and personal; a violent and brutal arrest for simply walking down the street.

The following video was taken on December 9th, 2011, the day before International Human Rights Day, and it shows three human rights activists in Santa Clara, Cuba being arrested for the crime of walking down the street.
