Assembly Has Begun!

Posted by Hello

Today at 10 AM, the Assembly to Promote Civil Society in Cuba kicked off, with more than 300 Cuban delegates, along with some international delegates, in Havana set to attend. Press releases from the support center in Miami have indicated a noticeable police presence around the site of the Assembly in the outskirts of Havana.

Demonstrations have also taken place in several European capitals, including in Milan and Rome where Cuban exiles demonstrating peacefully in support of the Assembly have been physically confronted by counter-demonstrators.

Also, the BBC has reported the expulsion of two more European participants, Czech senator Karel Schwarzenberg and German MP Arnold Vaatz, by Cuban police yesterday.
