Ladies in White March in Cuban Capital without Problems

Some 50 members of the Ladies in White, a group made up of relatives of the 75 dissidents jailed in Cuba’s “Black Spring” of 2003, marched again in Havana amid a heavy police presence and the heckling of hundreds of government supporters, but no serious incidents were reported. Last Wednesday, Cuban state security agents broke up a march by the group, pushing and dragging some 30 members of the Ladies in White onto buses.

"The group’s spokeswoman in Europe, Blanca Reyes, called Sunday on Spanish Foreign Minister Miguel Angel Moratinos to reconsider his plans to seek an easing of the European Union’s policy toward Cuba, adding that such a change would work against ending a “ferocious dictatorship.”

The governments of Spain and the other EU members should maintain the policy in place since 1996, which ties dialogue with the Castro regime to moves toward democracy and respect for human rights on the island, Reyes said."
