Ladies in White defy Cuba dictatorship, march in Havana, Cuba, Twice!

After conducting another repressive operation this past weekend, which resulted in the arrest of more than three dozen members of the peaceful human rights group The Ladies in White, the Castro dictatorship got an unwelcome surprise. On Sunday, the remaining Ladies in White managed to carry out not one, but two peaceful protest marches in Havana, Cuba.

Despite the government repression, more than 40 Ladies in White carried out their accustomed march to the Santa Rita Church in Havana this Sunday, June 17th, to celebrate Father’s Day.  When the mass concluded, these women decided to catch their oppressors off guard and marched for the second time in one day, this time from Infanta street to Neptune Street.  The former political prisoner Ivan Hernandez Carrillo was covering these events and also shared some photos of the demonstration on his Twitter account, @ivanlibre.  See the photos here:
