The Ladies of Support Speak Today at Santa Rita

The Ladies of Support for the Ladies in White were at St. Rita’s Church in the parish of Miramar today. “We,” said the dissident Maritza Castro, a Lady of Support for the Ladies in White, “have marched for years alongside the Ladies in White, we have given them our support, our lives, our families. Although we don’t have prisoner husbands, we walk in solidarity and for the freedom not only of the 75 but for the freedom of ALL political prisoners; they are our friends and that is much more than brothers. Each time you beat a Lady in White, we were there to receive the blows. The images have been sent around the world. And it’s not fair to exclude us now.”
