    Cuban authorities cracked down on a march Sunday to pray at the tomb of a dissident whose death became a rallying cry for human rights activists.

    Cuban security agents beat and detained about 40 dissidents after the mother of the late political prisoner Orlando Zapata Tamayo and her supporters prayed at his tomb, activists reported Monday.
    The mother, Reina Luisa Tamayo, said she was repeatedly hit on the head, thrown to the ground and gagged with a smelly rag that left her breathless as she shouted anti-government slogans.

    Security officers also kicked several handcuffed young men during the incident Sunday, added Marlon Martorell, a dissident who took part in the protest.

    While the news media was reporting the latest "reforms" being implemented by Raul Castro, Reina Luisa Tamayo and 40 other dissidents were getting brutally beaten in the town of Banes, Holguin (Oriente) province. They were being stoned and rounded up like cattle.Banes was the birthplace of Fulgencio Batista, located about 20 miles north from the small town of Biran. Fidel Castro birthplace.

    For the fourth week, security forces in Santiago halt Ladies in White
    By Juan O. Tamayo

    Cuban dissidents complained that security forces blocked about 20 supporters of the Ladies in White from reaching a church service Sunday in the eastern city of Santiago, including nine women who were beaten and humiliated.
    The Damas de Blanco (Ladies in White) are a group in Cuba of the wives and other relatives of jailed dissidents. They have been protesting the imprisonments of their husbands by going to Mass each Sunday dressed in white and silently walking through the streets. The white color of the dresses is used as a symbol of peace. In 2005 they were awarded the Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought.

    Ladies in White again attacked in Cubahttp://www.bellinghamherald.com/2011...-attacked.html

    By JUAN O. TAMAYO
    August 19, 2011

    MIAMI Cuban government supporters attacked more than 40 members and supporters of Ladies in White in what a spokeswoman called the worst violence against the Havana group since the Catholic Church interceded on their behalf in the spring.
    The regime apologists blame the attacks on the supporters of the Ladies in White, not in the violence of the goons and thugs prompted by Raúl Castro speech at the sixth communist party congress saying that “it is necessary to make clear that we will never deny the peoples’ right to defend the revolution. The defense of the independence, of the conquests of Socialism and of our streets and plazas will still be the first duty of every Cuban patriot." The regime apologists are very predictable, blame the victim not the aggressor.

    Castro vs. the Ladies in White
    Mary Anastasia O'Grady: Castro's Goons vs. the Ladies in White - WSJ.com

    Rocks, iron bars and sticks are no match for the gladiolas and courage of these peaceful Cuban protesters.
    Many in the mainstream media remain silent on the assault by mobs organized by the state security of the regime against the Ladies in White. These peaceful ladies are asking only that their cause be acknowledged and the repression expose.

    The majority of the people depend mostly on the mainstream media for their news, but thanks to ideological blinders of many in the mainstream media remain they know very little about the attacks by the Castros’ goons against the peaceful Cuban dissidents.

    Video shows armed Cuban police breaking up student protesthttp://www.miamiherald.com/2010/09/1...uba-draws.html

    A strike by Pakistani students in Cuba drew a show of force from an anti-riot squad not seen before on the streets of the island.

    A Cuban anti-riot squad, previously unseen but surprisingly well-equipped and with fixed bayonets, quelled a Pakistani student protest in Matanzas, a video of the event shows.

    TROPAS ANTIMOTINES ENTRAN A UNA ESCUELA CUBANA (PARTE 1) - YouTube
    Riot police halts student protest in Matanzas, Cuba
    This is a forerunner of things to come. On September 08, 2010, a Pakistanis students strike, complaining about the quality of their medical education, was put down by the regime anti-riot squad.

    The reasons riot police didn't use force against the students was that the protest wasn’t violent and they were afraid to been recorded and posted in the internet for the whole world to see. If the students have started to throw rocks and bottles, the riot police would have used whatever methods to squelch it. As they said it in the video, “Our hand will not tremble in the face of violence.”

    The cell phone video shows Pakistanis medical students besieged by Cuban security dressed in full riot gear and assault rifles with fixed bayonets. Bayonets, other than in drill an ceremonial occasions, are used as a weapon in close combat. To some extent it seems extreme this show of force against unarmed students.

    On Cuba’s Capitol StepsReview & Outlook: On Cuba's Capitol Steps - WSJ.com

    Four women speak the unspeakable.
    Opinion
    August 27, 2011

    The four Cuban women who took to the steps of the capitol in Havana last week chanting "liberty" for 40 minutes weren't exactly rebel forces. But you wouldn't know that by the way the Castro regime reacted. A video of the event shows uniformed state security forcibly dragging the women to waiting patrol cars. They must have represented a threat to the regime because they were interrogated and detained until the following day.
    The video of the incident recorded an unprecedented show of vocal support from the people for the four women staging the protest. Normally passersby don’t get involve since they fear the
    crack down of state security agents and government mobs. The Cuban people are showing more sings that they are on the side of the dissidents

    The four women are exercising their right to freedom of speech. The tyranny is getting more nervous since the tweets of what is happening in Egypt, Libya and Syria are been send to cell phones in Cuba, and people around the world are watching.

    Capitol Hill Cubans: New Videos: Crowds Defend Pro-Democracy Activists

    at 1:36 AM Saturday, August 27, 2011
    Yesterday, Cuban pro-democracy activists, Ivonne Mallesa Galano and Rosario Morales la Rosa, staged a street-corner protest in Havana.
    #Cuba: Protesta en Cuatro Caminos, La Habana - YouTube
    The two women protested during two hour against the Castros regime at the Cuatro Caminos Plaza in the center of Havana banging pots and pans, The onlookers, after the women arrest by the police, fallow them to the police station where they demonstrated their support for them shouting libertad (freedom), libertad, libertad. These incidents demonstrate that the Cuban people are losing fear of the Castros tyranny.
