Damas Blancas

Interesting that both the BBC and Reuters picked up this piece of news on April 21:

HAVANA:
A group of Cuban women peacefully demonstrating for the release of their jailed husbands were roughed up by a mob and arrested, then released, on Monday near the offices of President Raul Castro. (Reuters) Police have arrested a group of Cuban women demonstrating to demand the release of their dissident husbands. The 10 women were also kicked and shouted at by about 100 government supporters as they were being detained, Reuters news agency reported. (BBC)

None of the blogs searched on my custom google blogs picked it up. April 20 Yoani wrote the Matrix post and on the 28th de donde son los carteles?

That kind of demonstration is unusual as was the way it was treated. So the blogs don’t pick up on it.
