    her front door, the Cuban regime painted a portrait of Fidel
    Castro and the slogan "Fatherland or Death." Roque said that
    seven protesters, who gathered peacefully outside Cuba's Justice
    Ministry demanding a mass release of political prisoners, were
    detained and escorted home by police. The police also stopped
    dissidents across the island from joining the demonstration.
