Cuban Libertarian Activists Arrested By State Police

Herrera Hernandez, far right, has been arrested several times before for peaceful dissidence.

A libertarian brother from the Mises Cuba Institute notified me shortly after two Cuban libertarian activists were arrested by State Security officers—the political secret police.  Mises Cuba, Mises USA, and the PanAm Post all confirmed that Ubaldo Herrera Hernandez and Manuel Velazquez Visea were both arrested in the last week.  Other members of Mises Cuba were also threatened with arrest by the political police.
