Caught on Film: Female Activists Protest in Havana, Violently Arrested

Sunday, September 21, 2014
The video below shows two female democracy activists holding a banner on the rooftop of a building in central Havana, while calling for "Freedom!" and "Down With the Dictatorship!"

Pamphlets with messages from the Cuban Patriotic Union (UNPACU) were dispersed throughout the streets.

Towards the end, note the violence with which the female activists are yanked from the rooftop; the size of the police operation mounted against them; the gathering crowd's rejection of the violence used against the peaceful activists (chants of "Abusers!"); and the secret police officials dispersed through the crowds.
