WITH SHOUTS OF "LAURA POLLAN VIVE," THE LADIES IN WHITE VOW TO CONTINUE THEIR MARCHES FOR HUMAN RIGHTS
The video, which can be accessed below, shows the October 18th march of The Ladies in White (Las Damas de Blanco), less than 48 hours since the death of their esteemed and beloved leader, Laura Pollán. Ms. Pollán died Friday night, October 16, 2011, from a reported cardiac arrest in Havana. As spokeswoman for the Ladies in White, Berta Soler announces quite passionately in the video that the women will continue to struggle for the cause of human rights on the island.
