Women of FLAMUR march and demand higher salaries and lower prices
“Higher salaries and lower prices”. Those were the words which women from Holguin were chanting as they marched with a flag of FLAMUR in their hands.
These brave women were supported by Amilkar Perez Riveron, an activist of the Republican Party of Cuba, who participated in the demonstration by these members of the Federation of Rural Latin American Women (FLAMUR).
The march took place on the morning of July 16th nearby the Hilda Torre neighborhood in the city of Holguin.
“We will continue to demand the Cuban government to pay workers just salaries that yield enough to survive, and/or to lower prices so that everyday Cubans can have access to things they need”, expressed Libia Hernandez Perez, director of FLAMUR in Holguin.
The dissidents which participated were: Gladis Ramírez Fernández, Lisbet Peñas Hernández, Eleiny Viamonte Cardoso, Libia Hernández Pérez, Carmen Oropesa Ramírez and Amilkar Pérez Riverón.
