The women, known as the “Ladies in White”, have staged an unprecedented series of small demonstrations since their husbands were arrested in a political crackdown in 2003 that landed 75 dissidents in prison on charges of working for the U.S. government. Fifty-five remain behind bars. On Monday, 10 of the women staged a sit-in next to Havana ‘s Revolution Square to demand that President Raul Castro’s government release their relatives.
