Laura Pollán: "Very soon Cuba will be free"

A 19-minute interview with Las Damas de Blanco leader Laura Pollán is now on the Cuba Money Project's Vimeo channel. In the interview, recorded before Pollán fell ill, the dissident leader declares:
They’ve hit us. They’d kicked us. We’re going to continue. We know we’re in the right. Very soon Cuba will be free. People are waking up.

Fellow members of Las Damas de Blanco marched on Sunday along Quinta Avenida in Havana and prayed for the dissident leader, CubaEncuentro reported. They said Pollán was in intensive care with respiratory problems caused by an as-yet-unknown virus.
