March for the Ladies in White

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.

  1. Well said Val, and the same applies to the marches everywhere. Get out there and stand in solidarity with the Ladies in White, for a free Cuba.

  2. Kind of a long drive for me…..But divide and conquer has always been the (sadly simple) Castroite strategy against us. Let’s stick it to him on this one. I’d love to be there.

  3. I’m just a hop, skip, and stone’s throw away-literally. Who wants to meet up for lunch at la Caridad del Cobre neighberhood market? Food there is super cheap, and great.

  4. Yeah, man, it’s not only Miami, and LA intransigents, make Nu Oleens march for Dama de Blanco too, :^)

  5. I went and I’m really glad I did because I was able to witness that the Cuban exile spirit is still very much alive and kicking, unwilling to give up the still burning desire for the cause of a free Cuba without the Castro brothers.

    Fifty-one years of Castro tyranny and the Cuban exiles won’t give-up on the dream of freedom for the island.

    Today I felt good, really good.

    Viva Cuba Libre!
