The Castro regime arrested over 23 dissidents from the Cuban Patriotic Union (UNPACU) today, as they tried to gather for a regional meeting of the organization in the province of Villa Clara.
Among those arrested was Sakharov Prize winner, Guillermo Farinas, who was savagely beaten and held in a freezing cell.
Farinas suffered two broken ribs from the beating.
More "reform" you can't believe in.
