Thursday, December 24, 2015
Over 40 members of The Ladies in White, the internationally-recognized group composed of the wives, mothers, daughters and other relatives of Cuban political prisoners, were arrested yesterday.

Their crime? Hosting a Christmas event at their headquarters, where they distributed gifts to children.

In the video below, you can see first-hand the arrest of Yamile Garro, along with her 3-year old son, as well as other members of The Ladies in White.

The plain clothes men in the motorcycles and in the Russian cars, guiding the female police officers around, are members of Castro's domestic secret police, known as the Directorate of State Security (DSE).
