At least 87 members of The Ladies in White were arrested this weekend by the Castro regime, as they tried to attend Sunday Mass.
This Sunday's Mass was dedicated throughout the world to the canonization of John XXIII and John Paul II.
The Ladies in White is a pro-democracy group that consists of the wives, mothers, daughters, sisters and other relatives of Cuban political prisoners.
In Havana, there were 27 arrested, including Rosario Morales, Belkis Felicia, Victoria Díaz Morfa, Jesica Casternao, Haydeé Gallardo, Yamilé Garro, Nayibis Corrales, Julia Estrella Aramburu and Lázara Bárbara Sendiña.
Among the 17 arrested in the province of Matanzas were Asunción Carrillo, Caridad Burunate, Yenisleydis Millo and Mayra García.
Dozens of arrests were also reported in Holguin and Santiago de Cuba.
With its usual cynicism, while the Castro regime arrested peaceful activists for trying to attend Mass in Cuba, its Foreign Minister, Bruno Rodriguez, was in Rome attending the official canonization ceremony.
More "reform" you can't believe in.
