Via Capitol Hill Cubans:
9th Consecutive Sunday: Over 70 Cuban Dissidents Arrested, Silence From Obama
at 10:53 PM Sunday, June 7, 2015
For the ninth consecutive Sunday, over 70 Cuban dissidents have been violently arrested by the Castro regime.
Among those arrested were 40 members of the pro-democracy group, The Ladies in White. One of them, Ada Lopez Canino, lost some of her teeth during the beating she received.
Also arrested were dozens of other dissidents, including rocker Gorki Aguila, artist Tania Bruguera, photographer Claudio Fuentes, former political prisoner Angel Moya and democracy leader Antonio Rodiles.
Last month, over 641 dissidents were arrested — the highest number of political arrests in the last ten months.
Meanwhile, the Obama Administration remains silent and unmoved — not to mention the U.S.’s regional allies, whom the President assured us would be more critical of rights abuses in Cuba thanks to his new policy.
As a result, the Castro regime is now completely emboldened and unaccountable in its repression.
