The First Dissident Wedding in Havana

This February 19, in the afternoon at the residence of the blogger Yoani Sanchez, the members of the Blogger Academy found out that a symbolic wedding was underway.  Later, I knew that this wedding broke with all the institutional parameters of any official wedding in Cuba.  That was how Jose Alberto Alvarez Bravo, member of the Cuban Law Association, expressed himself as he symbolically entered into matrimony with Lilia Castaner Hernandez, member of the Group of Support of the Ladies in White.  A representative of the Ladies in White was present in the Blogger Academy, showing solidarity with the alternative bloggers.
