FLAMUR’s Call to Cuban Women in Exile

Having submitted their petition with 10,738 signatures demanding that they be allowed to use the currency in which they are paid in any establishment in the country, and in effect end the current two tier apartheid system, FLAMUR, the organization of rural women behind the “Con la Misma Moneda” campaign asks a question. Why have they not received support of Cuban women living in free countries?
What starts out as something of a challenge at the beginning of their communiqué ends on a plea for help, reminding us that they are from the interior of the country where there is no international press, there are no diplomatic offices. Their only protection lies in the notice we in free countries can bring them. These brave women with the help of young people have been collecting signatures throughout the country for months, and whatever shelter my poor words can offer, I will gladly give.
In their communiqué, they include a list of whom they consider notable Cuban women. I’ve included it below the fold. For the entire article at Misceláneas de Cuba, click here.
