Cuba Demands Justice for Terrorism Victims
Victim of U.S. Terrorism
Havana, Oct 6 (Prensa Latina) Cuba demands justice on the Day of the Victims of Terrorism, a scourge that, promoted and financed from the United States, has killed nearly 3,478 people and disabled 2,099 in the country.
Authorities, relatives of the victims and citizens from different generations demand an end to impunity on a march to Havana's Colon Cemetery, where a mausoleum was built in memory of the 73 people killed on October 6, 1976, in a sabotage on a Cuban airliner.
The date observed here to pay tribute to the victims of that sabotage is an occasion to demand Washington to stop protecting terrorists such as Luis Posada Carriles, the confessed mastermind of the mid-air explosion of Cubana de Aviacion's DC-8 airplane.
Posada Carriles lives freely in Miami, in South Florida, despite his record of violent actions against Cuba at the service of the CIA, and the extradition request from Venezuela, from where he escaped in 1985 while awaiting to be sentenced for the attack.
The Day of the Victims of Terrorism is also a day of condemnation of violence and commitment to peace.
Those kinds of events leave a mark on you, the pain has passed from generation to generation, from family to family, so we have to continue our struggle, not only for justice, but also to fight any terrorist action in the world, said Odalys Perez, the daughter of the pilot of the aircraft sabotaged in 1976, in statements to Prensa Latina.
