Back on July 5th this blog reported that the long awaited book "The night will not be eternal" by Oswaldo Payá Sardiñas will be formally presented on Wednesday, July 25, 2018 at 7:00pm in the Varela room at Our Lady of Charity (La Ermita de la Caridad) in Miami, Florida. This is the the place where Cuban exiles received Oswaldo Payá Sardiñas in January of 2003, after he had been awarded the Sakharov Prize in Europe in December of 2002. The book will be on sale starting at 6:00pm.
Friends and admirers of Oswaldo Payá Sardiñas are invited.
This is not to be confused with the Mass that will be held at La Ermita de la Caridad on Sunday at 6:00pm. It will be held to give thanks for the lives of Oswaldo Payá Sardiñas, and Harold Cepero Escalante marking the day six years ago that their lives were cruelly taken by agents of the Castro regime.
The Human Rights Foundation (HRF) published a legal report on July 22, 2015 highlighting the inaccuracies and inconsistencies of the official government investigation following Payá’s death in 2012. HRF documented numerous due process violations, including damning witness accounts, a grossly inadequate autopsy examination, and other key pieces of evidence that were overlooked by the Cuban judicial system. HRF’s report concludes that the “evidence, which was deliberately ignored, strongly suggests that the events of July 22, 2012 were not an accident, but instead the result of a car crash directly caused by agents of the state.”
The event will be in Spanish.
