Request unprotection?[edit]

This page has been protected for the past ten days. Absolutely no discussion has occurred on the talk page regarding the reasons for protection (since I am creating the talk page). Unless there are objections, I will recommend unprotection. Calwatch 23:48, 18 June 2006 (UTC)

Debate[edit]

Feel free to debate this topic. I have about 200 sources gathered in the process of writing an article named "The Cason affair" which will bring together disperate elements from a number of pages which at present need a home. For instance, the Varela project has material more relevant to the Cason affair than to its own page.--Zleitzen 02:19, 16 July 2006 (UTC)

POV Tag[edit]

I had tagged this article as being non-neutral, but it looks like the POV wording has been removed in a more recent revision, so I have removed the tag.--digital_me(TalkˑContribs) 17:29, 16 July 2006 (UTC)

Hebe de Bonafini mentioned in this piece[edit]

I fail to see what Hebe de Bonafini has to do with the Ladies in White. It seems as though the segment regarding her opinion of the organization was added to the article in a bid to express POV sentiments and should really be removed. Could someone chime in and get the discussion going? Her appearance here adds nothing to the article. Banafini is a member of the Madres de la Plaza de Mayo and not a member of the Ladies in White.

Since no one objected, I deleted the Hebe de Bonafini section, as it has nothing to do with the Ladies in White. Also, someone had included information regarding the CANF - again, this is irrelevant - the group receives donations from a wide array of donors and singling out one donor and mentioning "terrorism" is blatant. POV.

Of course the comments by de Bonafini are relevant - she is directly criticising the Ladies in White. I've written a new passage in the criticism section. Pexise (talk) 12:59, 12 July 2008 (UTC)

No mention of US help to Ladies in White?[edit]

Why don't you guys go deeper into the criticism of the ladies in white? Some of their sons were front groups for anti-castro right wingers back in miami and agents of the US embassy. This whole article reeks of gusano propaganda. All that's listed in the criticism section is a paragraph of a human rights report. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 129.7.101.167 (talk) 00:32, 22 May 2010 (UTC)

At Wikipedia, we don't do our own research. If and only if you have a reliable source for this, then it should be in the article. — Sebastian 21:00, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

CRITICISMS edited[edit]

“However, the Ladies in White have never issued an official statement regarding their support for the United States.”

We should be informative and leave the reader to make judgments. Using "However" makes it sound that it is a valid counterargument, when it is a simple statement of fact. Hence I have removed it.

The part on Cuba, again another "however", which kinda linked it to the first "however". It is more about Cuba and I feel it belongs in the "attacks" (I remove "on Ladies of White" as it is already the title of the article just as if it said "criticism on Ladies of White")

Overall, only removed 2 Howevers, put things in a more appropiate context and balanced article as attacks only had 3 lines. Hope you all approveCgonzalezdelhoyo (talk) 20:46, 11 December 2010 (UTC)

These news stories didn't appear to have inline citations[edit]

These news stories didn't appear to have inline citations attached to them, so I've moved them here; if anyone wants to reintegrate them into the article, I suggest we attach them specifically to what information came from them. Cheers Khazar (talk) 14:43, 28 January 2012 (UTC)

Some more cleanup[edit]

I've done a bit more rearranging to this one. First, I broke up the section "Attacks on Ladies in White"--it included everything from mobs (clearly attacks) to counter-protests--which I suppose is a kind of attack, but it's needlessly inflammatory to compare all criticism to an attack by a mob. I've also removed some unreferenced claims about police abuses, as well as some general statements about human rights in Cuba. Let me know if anybody has any objections...
