UNiTE Ignores Violence Against Women

Wednesday, December 5, 2012
And no, it's not an oxymoron.

On Monday, Mexican singer-songwriter Julieta Venegas gave a concert in Havana as part of the United Nations Secretary General’s Campaign to End Violence Against Women, UNiTE.

Of course, the concert was at a closed theater with access controlled by the Castro regime.

Yet, the day before, the following members of The Ladies in White, a peaceful women's pro-democracy movement, were beaten and arrested for simply to trying to attend Mass.

1. Maria Cristina Labrada Barona
2. Anisley Pavón Goberna
3. Aimé Moya Montes de Oca
4. Lisandra Farray Rodríguez
5. Sandra Rodríguez Gatorno
6. Marbelis González Reyes
7. Lis Eladia Quiñones González
8. Raquel Rodríguez Morejón
9. Dianelis Rodríguez Morejón
10. Olga Lidia Torres Iglesias
11. Noralis Martín Hernández
12. Romelia Piña González
13. Danay  Mendiola Duquesne
14. Liliana Campo Bruzon
15.Bertha Guerrero Segura
16. Rosa María Naranjo Nieves

Yet, they weren't mentioned by Julieta Venegas during the concert -- nor has their arrest been condemned by UNiTE.

So how can UNiTE effectively fight violence against women if they ignore it right under their noses?
