Odds and ends

  • The rural women’s group that has petitioned for an end to Cuba’s dual-currency system issued an appeal for support, naming 34 prominent women in Miami media and civic affairs, asking why they have not raised their voices.

  • After mass in Havana yesterday, the Damas de Blanco dispensed with their usual march along a few blocks of Quinta Avenida and instead marched to the National Assembly. They received support from some visiting Europeans. (Update: Ten Spanish women were detained and will be deported for joining the demonstration; Reuters report here.)
