Posted on October 25, 2015

14ymedio, Havana, 25 October 2016 — The artist Danilo Maldonado, ‘El
Sexto’ (The Sixth), joined 48 Ladies in White during their traditional
walk down Fifth Avenue in Havana this Sunday. Released last week after
ten months in prison, the graffiti artist accompanied the women and
about twenty activists who gathered outside after mass at Santa Rita Church.

Also participating in the march were Jose Daniel Ferrer, leader of the
Patriotic Union of Cuba (UNPACU), along with the families of the three
activists arrested while trying to approach Pope Francis during his
visit to Cuba. The regime opponents Zaqueo Baez, Ismael Boris Reñi and
the Lady in White Maria Josefa Acon are still being detained, after
having been arrested on 20 September at the Mass in the Havana’s Plaza
of the Revolution.

In the east of the country, UNPACU reported more than 80 arrests today
to prevent individuals from reaching the Sanctuary del Cobre. In Havana,
after the march, more than 50 Ladies in White and activists were arrested.
