A Tribute to the Cuban Woman on Mother’s Day

“The Cuban Woman: Mother, wife, daughter, friend, Resistance”

This is a simple video made by the authors of this blog and is dedicated to the Cuban woman on this Mother’s Day:

Meanwhile today, on Mother’s Day 2012, a number of Cuban mothers- most of them members of the Ladies in White- have been arrested and beaten by the Cuban political police, and yet they continue carrying out their activities and RESISTING against the repression.

We wish all Cuban mothers to have a Happy Mother’s Day today, especially those who fight for the freedom of Cuba.  These face harassment, acts of repudiation, beatings, and arrests for demanding the rights of an entire nation.  Regardless, they still find time to protect and educate their children and families.  They are examples of courage and inspiration.
