I've written about the Ladies in White before, and they've patiently stuck to their theme: the world must see the human rights violations in our midst. Jay Nordlinger alerts us to a confrontation after Mass this weekend:
The Ladies in White, as you know, are Cuban women who march peacefully through the streets with candles and flowers and such. They wouldn’t, and couldn’t, hurt a fly. They march in solidarity with their loved ones who are political prisoners. After attending mass at the Cathedral of Santiago de Cuba, 20 Ladies in White were met by “government led mobs with blunt objects,” as well as “members of the Ministry of the Interior.” The women were followed by these assembled bullies, “insulted,” “threatened,” and “pushed into buses that took them to an unknown location.”
Prayers, friends. We can (and should!) share their trials. May they (and their loved ones) be released quickly and unharmed.
