In the footsteps of the Mirabal sisters

Early this year we learned that a young Danish woman had been detained by the authorities in the Dominican republic. In a time where even good god-fearing Christians are detained and expelled from both Haiti and the Dominican republic the official charge doesn't matter.

This young Danish woman who now is at risk of following in the footsteps of the Mirabal sisters may not even survive long enough so she can participate in the show-trial which is expected to take place sometime in the future.

We must all pray that the Danish government can intervene and demand her extradited or at least bribe her free as they did with the Danish woman in Cambodia.
