Saudi Women Rising. Saudi women columnists protest against oppression of women in their country
Saudi women suffer from the oppression of an Islamic misogynist society. Their husbands beat them on a daily basis, hold them as slaves in their houses. That is why, some young women, when the husbands are away, enter in chats and have virtual sex, or make imaginary streap-teases with their web-cams to show themselves to thousands of unknown men, mostly young and sex-thirsty men who are repressed in a society which considers sex as a sin.

Desperation in Cuba, where three soldiers defected with their weapons and tried to hijack a plane in order to flee the Gulag. So far, the regime is covering up the incident, probably because of fear that others could be encouraged to do the same. And, unsurprisingly, the Cuban regime is blaming the US. Everybody knows that people in Cuba cannot leave the country without the regime’s permission and the slavery they go through everyday prompts them to escape the Gulag by any mean. If the regime allowed people to leave whenever they want, these things wouldn’t happen. Frustration of the youth in Cuba is very high and it includes people forced to serve in the Cuban army. The three black men now face death penalty.
Below are the three young soldiers who defected, took their weapons and tried to hijack a plan to flee Cuba. They wanted to be free. The opposition movements are unanimously calling on all the other Cuban soldiers to free themselves from slavery and join the people. These three young guys are facing certain death in the hands of castro’s henchmen. They represent the feeling of frustraion of million of other young Cubans.
