AP – Cuba stepped up its campaign against the island’s small dissident community on Sunday, with pro-government demonstrators screaming insults at the “Ladies in White” opposition group a day after state-television aired a program denouncing them as agents of Washington.

About 100 pro-government demonstrators surrounded the Ladies as they marched in Havana’s Vedado neighborhood, shouting slogans like “Down with the Worms!” and “This Street Belongs to Fidel!” as well as some sexually offensive slogans.
