En el tiempo de las mariposas 3 de 30

Las Hermanas Mirabal--The Mirabal sisters: Patria, Dedé, Minerva and Maria Teresa are Dominican heroines who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. They gave up a privileged life to fight against the abuses of a powerful and corrupt Dominican dictator: Rafael Leonidas Trujillo Molina. Trujillo had trampled the constitution, abolished basic human rights, and terrorized his opposition with torture, imprisonment, and death. The Mirabal sisters took up the struggle to bring down Trujillo's regime. On November 25, 1960, Patria, Minerva, Maria Teresa, and their driver, Rufino de la Cruz, were murdered on the outskirts of Puerto Plata. They lost their lives struggling to restore democracy and the rule of law to their beloved Dominican Republic. Their legacy will live forever in our hearts and the lessons they thought us cannot be forgotten. Six months after the Mirabals' death, the Trujillo regime came crumbling down when he was killed on the night of May 30, 1961.
