Candidate Clinton's silence on Castro regime's beating of Cuban women answered with more violence a day later

"In keeping silent about evil, in burying it so deep within us that no sign of it appears on the surface, we are implanting it, and it will rise up a thousand fold in the future." -  Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago 1918-1956  

Cuban women targeted by the Castro regime's repressive forces this past Sunday
On July 23, 2016 a plane flew over the Florida International University Arena asking Hillary Clinton to help stop the beatings of Cuban women by the Castro regime and its agents. Over two thousand fliers were distributed on that day that called on Hillary Clinton to help put an end to the physical assaults on the wives, mothers, sisters, and daughters of Cuban political prisoners by calling on General Raul Castro to stop the systematic beatings against these women.

Unfortunately one day later, with the non-response of Secretary Clinton to this request, in Cuba once again the wives, mothers, sisters, and daughters of Cuban political prisoners were beaten, kicked and had stones thrown at them when they tried to peacefully assemble in Havana, Cuba on July 24, 2016.

Candidate Clinton's silence on the Castro regime's continued systematic beating of Cuban women was answered loudly with more violence. This silence brings to mind the words of Archbishop Desmond Tutu,  "If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor." Hopefully Hillary Clinton will speak out on behalf of Cuban women before the next attack.

The video below was from July 18th and reflects what happened yesterday.
