PUBLIC OPINION NOTES GOVERNMENT ARRESTS By Luis Ramón Hernández, Cuba Free Press.

VILLA CLARA - 'Public opinion' has taken notice of the numerous government arrests before and during the Ibero-American Summit, as evidenced by the conversations of ordinary Cubans.

To prevent leaders and organizers of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) from traveling to Havana for a meeting of the NGOs scheduled to coincide with the summit, the government picked-up or confined with house arrests all known dissidents in the province of Villa Clara in central Cuba.

"With these arrests, the government had to recognize the existence of the opposition," said a passerby who asked not to be identified.
