As “a group of Cuban women peacefully demonstrating for the release of their jailed husbands were roughed up by a mob and arrested”, Cuban bloggers speak out…Babalu [1]: “The regime still fears free thinkers and political opposition”; Uncommon Sense [2]: “Freedom in Cuba — for the brave men on whose behalf these women were protesting, and for all Cubans — remains absent”; Child of the Revolution [3], Ninety Miles Away [4] and Free Thoughts [5] all post photos of the incident.
