The Ladies in White are the most internationally renowned civil rights movement in Cuba. The ‘Damas de Blanco’ formed in 2003 during the Cuban ‘Black Spring’, in which 75 civil rights activists and independent journalists were arbitrarily arrested. Since then, the wives, sisters, and mothers of the political prisoners have peacefully advocated for the release of all political prisoners in Cuba.
Cuba is a dictatorship. Raul and Fidel Castro have ruled since the end of 1959. The oppression and persecution of dissenters is the sad standard in the country. The already high number of arbitrary arrests has continued to rise since 1960 in Cuba. The techniques have changed, and the number of arrests has reached new record highs.
