Ladies in White Attacked by Regime Mob

A group of Ladies in White were attacked yesterday by a group of regime’s supporters organized and led by the state security and the political police. The Ladies told of the ordinary Cubans’ support for the brave relatives of political prisoners.

Female relatives of Cuban political prisoners, called the “Women in White”, exchange shouts with a group of government supporters while marching through Havana December 9, 2007. Monday is International Human Rights Day and the group said the protest was a prelude to other activities this coming week to draw attention to human rights abuses by Cuba’s government.
