Anniversary of 'Black Spring'

On the 4th anniversary of Cuba's Primavera Negra (Black Spring) crackdown on independent journalists who broke Cuba's anti-free press laws, I present you with a picture of a protest held yesterday in Havana by the Damas en Blanco (Ladies in White).

Civil disobedience, Havana-style.

Cuba has released some of the original 75 arrested, but most remain in prison for merely speaking out against the regime. Those of you out there who are more indignant about U.S. policy towards Cuba than Cuba's own policies against its own people should reflect a little on the significance of this.
