Over 100 members of The Ladies in White were arrested yesterday by the Castro regime.
After attending Mass at Santa Rita Church in Havana, the peaceful female activists marched together towards the sea to commemorate -- by placing flowers in the water -- the 20th anniversary of the "13 de Marzo" tugboat massacre.
They were intercepted by dozens of police officers and secret police officials that arrested them and mounted them onto three buses.
The arrests were witnessed by an AFP reporter, who is apparently the only foreign journalist in Cuba that doesn't take Sunday off.
This is the 53rd Sunday in a row that members of The Ladies in White are arrested throughout Cuba.
The Ladies in White are a pro-democracy group composed of the wives, daughters, sisters, mothers and other relatives of Cuban political prisoners.
More "reform" you can't believe in.
