This morning, three Cuban dissidents (two men and a woman) managed to approach Pope Francis' vehicle and were violently arrested afterwards by Castro's secret police.
Univision captured live footage of the entire incident -- click here to watch.
The video shows the dissidents, led by Zaqueo Baez of the Cuban Patriotic Union (UNPACU), approach the Pope's vehicle and ask for his support for the freedom of the Cuba people.
The Pope gave them a blessing and they were thereafter separated from the vehicle.
Note how Castro's secret police officials -- dressed in plain clothes -- came out from the crowds and chased them down, in order to violently drag them away.
They also carefully picked up every pamphlet calling for the freedom of the Cuban people that the dissidents dispersed in the air.
