After a half century of tyranny, could it be that change in Cuba will be achieved not by armies, embargos, politicians or dictators but by a physician’s concern for his patients, a mother’s love for her son, a wife’s devotion to her husband?

The Ladies in White, Dr. Oscar Biscet, Oswaldo Paya and Yoani Sanchez are Cuban dissidents who have been nominated for this year’s Nobel Peace Prize which will be awarded in Oslo Norway this December. These individuals have been peacefully protesting the totalitarian dictatorship which has ruled the island for over fifty years by demanding the release of all political prisoners, and increased human rights and democracy for their island nation of eleven million people.
