Several weeks ago, our friend Darsi Ferrer from Havana said he and others were planning a peaceful demonstration near the UN offices in the Cuban capital to mark the anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. A few days ago, he sent us a statement where he said he was expecting repression of this march.
