The Castro dictatorship on Thursday ordered Cubans across the island to display, on their person and elsewhere, yellow ribbons to show solidarity with the five convicted spies, four of whom continue to serve time in American prisons for their crimes. The yellow ribbon campaign is set to continue until October.
At least in Sancti Spiritus, some Cubans have rejected the regime by instead adorning the front doors of their homes with a blue ribbon to demonstrate their support, their demand, for freedom for Cuba.
The choice of blue ribbon can be traced to Jose Marti, who in a letter to the wife of fellow Cuban hero Maximo Gomez told her to tell her daughter "that in the most difficult of times, I touch the blue ribbon in my pocket."
I cannot think of a better response to the Castro regime's latest attempt to repeat its lies about the "Cuban Five," and to reinforce its enslavement of the Cuban people.
