Ladies in white

In Spanish "Damas de Blanco", is an opposition movement in Cuba consisting of wives and other female relatives of gaoled dissidents. The women protest the imprisonments by attending Mass each Sunday wearing white dresses and then silently walking through the streets dressed in white clothing. The colour white is chosen to symbolise peace.
