Categories: Caribbean, Cuba, Citizen Media, Freedom of Speech, Human Rights, Law, Politics, Protest, Women & Gender

Iván García [1] writes about the late leader of Las Damas de Blanco, Laura Pollan, recounting a violent assault on the group days before her death and saying: “If they have anything left of humanism and dignity, her assaulters owe a public apology to the family of Laura Pollan Toledo.” Pedazos de la Isla, meanwhile, notes here [2] and here [3] that the violence and intimidation continue.
