Ladies in White… Ladies of Cuba

Ladies in White… Ladies of Cuba

Photos like these have been seen a thousand and one times, but these are “mine,” they are “my Ladies in White,” the ones my eyes saw. The coming days are going to be tough with a Cuba given to the coming vote, this electoral farce that happens with the world turning its back.

Saturday the 23rd will be one more anniversary since the death of Orlando Zapata Tamayo on hunger strike, defending his rights and the dictatorship continues to rage against men and women who want freedom like they want air. This is my tribute to them, for them, they who give their all in the streets, they who are prey, and they whom they forced into exile.

  1. The politicized Nobel Peace Prize has never gone to these deserving ladies; Obama was more deserving, especially for escalating the drone killings.

  2. One day, and I hope I can see it, these women will stand besides Marti, in history as people to be honored by free Cubans. My puny words with a keyboard mean nothing. Time to do more.
