14ymedio, Havana, 21 January 2016 — A new act of repudiation against the
Ladies in White is developing right now outside the headquarters of the
movement in the Havana neighborhood of Lawton. Since this morning the
activists reported civilian groups with flags, loudspeakers and a
projection screen that had been summoned to the street that leads to the
house, according to the government opponent Martha Beatriz Roque.
At least five Ladies in White were arrested before reaching the site,
where there are 43 women celebrating their traditional literary tea. On
a “big screen” in front of the house, are projected “words of Berta
Soler and images of activities” undertaken by the leader of the movement
in travel to other countries.
A witness at the scene told 14ymedio by telephone that repudiation
groups were burning “leaflets and books” in garbage cans. According to
nearby residents, who requested anonymity, the pamphlets were the
Universal Declaration of Human Rights, information that could not be
confirmed by another source.
From the site of the group’s headquarters the activists threw leaflets
and balloons with messages.
