  • Description

    Despite strenuous attempts to impede religious observance in Havana since the pulpit reading of the pastoral letter denouncing Communism, the women of Cuba Sept 11 paraded through the streets of Havana to pay homage to their patron saint, the "Virgin de la Calidad."
    Also taking part in the procession, bible inhand, was the author of the pastoral letter, the Bishop of Havana.

    Recent parades of this kind have been broken up by well trained agitators, but on this occasion the women were allowed to proceed unmolested.

    The BCINA cameraman, however, was arrested.
