Cuban government detains two recently released dissidents

.- Cuban dissident Jorge Luis Garcia Perez denounced the country's government on June 2 for detaining 10 opposition leaders.
 
Perez said the detentions occurred while the two men were meeting to “coordinate a national march that will extend across the island, from one end to the other,” reported Cubaencuentro.com.
 
The arrests included Ivan Hernandez Carrillo and Felix Navarro, who were both part of the Group of 75 rounded up by the Cuban government during the “Black Spring of 2003.”
 
The two men had been released from prison in February and March of this year.
 
The other dissidents who were detained were Raul Risco Perez, Frank Reyes Lopez, Julio Columbie Batista, Rene Fernandez Quiroga, Guillermo del Sol Perez, Rolando Rodriguez Lobaina, Yoan David Gonzalez and Gliceria Paseiro Espinosa.
 
The Cuban government began releasing over 100 political prisoners in June 2010, as promised in an agreement with the Catholic Church.

Many of the prisoners released within the following months are living in exile in Spain.
