The Castro regime has violently arrested nearly 80 members of the peaceful pro-democracy group, The Ladies in White, today.
Forty-five of them were beaten and arrested as they marched down Havana's Quinta Avenida, pursuant to attending Mass.
Among those arrested is Havana was the leader of The Ladies in White, Berta Soler, as well as, Magalis Norvis, Caridad Peinado, Belkis Pérez Pérez, Amparo Milagros, Donaris Martín, Olga L. Torres, Lisandra Farray, Malbey Glez, Aimé Moya, Tatiana López, Aimé García Leiva, Aniuska Fuente, Sandra Guerra, Belki Cantillo, Aime Garcel and Vivian Pena.
Another twelve Ladies in White were arrested in the eastern province of Holguin.
Among those arrested in Holguin were Bárbara Pausa, Gertrudis Ojeda, Berta Herrero, Segura Liliana Campos, Marlene Abreu, Griseldis Peña, Romelia Piña, Nelda Molina, Mercy Glez, Noemí C Hidalgo.
Also, sixteen we arrested in Santiago de Cuba, five in Pinar del Rio and one is missing in the Matanzas province.
And in a touch of cynicism, Castro's state security has announced that they were arrested for "not respecting the grief of the Cuban people over Chavez's health."
More "reform" you can't believe in.
