Damas de Blanco
Damas de Blanco receive Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought.
The Ladies in White (Damas de Blanco) are an internationally acclaimed peaceful civic movement made up of wives and female relatives of jailed dissidents. Since 2003, they have consistently advocated for the release of political prisoners in Cuba by attending mass every Sunday wearing white clothing, to symbolise peace, and silently walking through the streets (of various town and cities in Cuba?). In 2005, the Ladies in White were awarded the Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought by the European Parliament.
