If you are reading this and you live in Miami you need to be at today’s march in Solidarity with las Damas de Blanco. No excuses. I know some folks out there might take issue with the organizers of this march or might not agree with some of the groups that will be participating. That’s all fine and dandy, but you need to be there tonight.
Today’s march isnt about ideologies or about pro-embargo/anti-embargo or about pro-restrictions or anti-restrictions or Democrat or Republican or old guard, new guard or whatever else it is that we may disagree on.
Today’s march is about one thing and one thing only: FREEDOM.
With today’s march we will shove freedom down the throats of those in Cuba who usurp it from others. We need to show those bastards that when you live in freedom, you can disagree on any and all issues and still be civil, still respect the opinions of others, still treat each other humanely and still fight for each other’s freedoms despite the fact that we don’t see eye to eye on everything.
I don’t agree with the Estefans on certain things, but today, I will proudly take to the streets alongside them because it is my duty to do so.
I urge all of you to take a couple hours of your day today and put your freedom to great use. Join us and let’s ALL walk together today for those who arent allowed to in Cuba.
