Cuba dissidents march again after relatives freed
Havana: A Cuban dissident group formed to demand freedom for imprisoned relatives is continuing its weekly protests despite the liberation of the last of their family members.
Ladies in White founder Laura Pollan says the group will continue its activities to demand freedom for all prisoners of conscience and for human rights.
The group began weekly on Sunday marches near Havana`s cathedral after the government arrested 75 dissidents in 2003 and accused them of working with the US government to undermine Cuba`s socialist system. Most of the protesters were wives or relatives of the 75.
The last of the dissidents were released this week under a deal with the Roman Catholic Church. Sunday`s march was the first since then.
