Another demonstration

Meanwhile there were protests over other issues this weekend:

The wives of 15 Cuban political prisoners jailed in last year’s crackdown on dissent held a rare public march in Havana’s streets Friday demanding amnesty for their husbands.

The women — dressed all in white, with many pinning their husbands’ photographs to their chests — started their march early Friday at the well-known Coppelia ice cream restaurant in the city center.

“Freedom for the 75 political prisoners!” the women shouted as they marched up to Department of Prisons headquarters seven blocks away.
