Castroism has claimed hundreds of thousands of lives in the Americas and Africa over the years, and despite this bloody and dark history there is an amnesia that seems to impact national leaders when dealing with this dictatorship, and in at least two cases, the memory was recovered by both the leadership and the people, but too late to avoid the same tragic fate of the Cubans.
This is why it is important to remember what the true nature of the dictatorship in Cuba is, and that of its blood allies in the region: Venezuela and Nicaragua.
On July 22, 2012 beginning at 9:00am there will be virtual live broadcast of tributes to Cuban martyrs Oswaldo Payá, Harold Cepero, and other new martyrs for democracy from around the Americas. CubaDecide provides the following description for the video:
"Live broadcast of the Tribute to Oswaldo Payá and Harold Cepero on the 8th anniversary of their murder. From various cities around the world we gather to commemorate the Victims of Communism in the Americas, a tribute to the new Martyrs of Democracy."Below, in Spanish, is the schedule for the day beginning at 9:00am EST and ending at 9:00pm EST. It is a 12 hour event, and should be widely shared to inform friends of freedom from around the world.
