Cuban police detain protesters outside prison, dissidents say | Activism, Protest, Citizen Movements, Social Justice | Scoop.it
HAVANA (Reuters) - Cuban police detained up to a dozen dissidents who had gone to a Havana prison to demand that fellow opponents of the government be released, dissidents said on Thursday. The detentions follow a series of others since Tuesday in a crackdown against activists who have attempted to test the communist government's tolerance for free speech and assembly in the wake of Cuba's thaw in relations with the United States. Cuban officials do not comment on police activity such as the detention of dissidents, and the Cuban government dismisses the opponents as paid advocates of the U.S. government. The dissidents have limited public support inside Cuba.
