Cuba marks rights day with dozens of arrests

A member of the Ladies in White Human Rights organization is arrested by Cuban police on December 10, 2015 in HavanaCuba marked Human Rights Day by detaining dozens of opposition activists or barring them from leaving their homes Thursday to prevent protests against the communist authorities, rights groups said. There were similar scenes elsewhere on the island — as is usually the case in Cuba on international rights day, when authorities stamp down on dissent. At least 11 people were arrested in Guantanamo, on the eastern tip of Cuba, and six more in the capital when they attempted to meet up, said dissident Jose Daniel Ferrer, leader of the Patriotic Union of Cuba rights body.
