The Diaz-Balarts in Tampa — Photos from a Babalú reader

Earlier this month, we let you know about a "Meeting with the Cuban community in Tampa, Florida / Reaffirmation of the struggle for Cuba’s freedom" that would take place today. According to the initial press release, it would be a meeting of:

Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL), Congressman David Rivera (R-FL), former Congressman Lincoln Diaz-Balart,  members of patriotic Cuban-American organizations in Tampa and former Cuban political prisoners.

In that post, we solicited photos from anyone who might be able to attend. Babalú readers came through!

Here are some photos from reader Omar Díaz:

Omar summarized the event and the Diaz-Balarts remarks this way:

The bros. each spoke of the present day of Cuba under the dictatorship with Lincoln talking about the twitter note he read recently of the activist whose young daughter was beaten up by state security agents. They both quoted Churchill's never give in when speaking of negotiating with Castro's shmafia (shit + Mafia). I made that one up.
Their message was one of hope for Cuba's future and the need for the exiles to maintain a hard line.

As a bonus, Omar sent us this photo of Cuban bread at a nearby bakery.
