What few Cubans commemorate the date call it the “Santa Rosa De Lima Massacre” (forget looking for any mention in the MSM or in any “scholarly” writings. It doesn’t fit the template, you see. Most of these victims had probably never heard of Meyer Lansky.)
Here’s a youtube (in Spanish) from our heroic friends at Plantados about a commemorative event two years ago.
Upon discovering a plot to overthrow the Castro regime in Aug. 30 1962, the Castroites murdered over 500 Cuban patriots by firing squad in a few weeks. Tens of thousands of other Cuban patriots suffered years or decades in Castro’s torture chambers.
Not ONE of these “counterrevolutionaries” had the slightest affiliation with “the Batista regime”–not ONE had any CIA contacts. Most of the military plotters had in fact been members of Castro’s own military.
Few revolutions have devoured their children with the voracity of Castro and Che’s.
Our friend Patsy Feliciano’s father was among the civilian plotters imprisoned.
