Cuban dissident with rose sends powerful message amid government crackdown | National / World


The Cuban government unwittingly created a powerful symbol of its fear of a growing opposition movement led by young Cubans, after state security agents and government supporters prevented playwright Yunior García from leaving. from her apartment for a solo Sunday stroll with a white rose.

Instead, García was forced to show the rose through the shades of his window to journalists standing in the distance, creating an iconic image of the dissident movement.
