Christian Solidarity Worldwide has the details on how the regime targets organized religion with repression:
Violations of religious freedom in Cuba continued to rise in 2014, according to a new report by Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW) detailing 220 separate violations over the course of the year. Religious leaders and groups from all denominations on the island reported problems ranging from harassment and fines to confiscation and destruction of church property.
Throughout 2014 CSW received regular reports of severe harassment and sporadic reports of violent beatings of Protestant pastors and lay leaders in different parts of the country. Week after week, scores of women affiliated with the Ladies in White dissident group, most of whom are Roman Catholic, were violently dragged away by state security agents to stop them from attending Sunday morning mass. Many were beaten in the process and most were arbitrarily detained until after the conclusion of religious services.
Church leaders were also subject to arbitrary detention. Reverend Mario Felix Lleonart Barroso of the Western Baptist Convention and his wife Yoaxis Marcheco Suarez were both arrested and pressured to sign a pre-arrest warrant, or Acta de Advertencia, on separate occasions in 2014. In November, Reverend Edi Yanela Área, a leader of an Apostolic Movement-affiliated church in Santiago de Cuba, was arbitrarily arrested and imprisoned for three days.
The government gave contradictory signals in regard to property rights. Positive moves included official permission to construct two new Catholic churches in Santiago de Cuba and in Pinar del Rio. However, other denominations reported continued threats of confiscation or destruction of their property. These include the Cuban Methodist Church, which was permitted to build a new church in Ciego de Avila in 2013, but reported government threats in mid-2014 to confiscate a church building in Matanzas. Religious groups that the government has refused to register, effectively making them illegal, like churches affiliated with the Apostolic Movement, reported serious problems. One Apostolic Movement church in Santiago de Cuba was destroyed by state security forces in July. Apostolic Movement leaders Pastor Alain Toledano in Santiago de Cuba and Pastor Yiorvis Bravo in Camaguey both reported continued threats from the government to confiscate their churches and homes despite the fact that they hold the deeds and paperwork demonstrating legal ownership.
