Jorge Luis Garcia Perez “Antunez” is coming to Los Angeles

It is perfect that the southern California Cuban community welcomes to Los Angeles a hero dedicated to Cuba's freedom, Jorge Luis Garcia "Antunez", and his wife, Yris Tamara Perez Aguilera, founder of the Rosa Parks Feminist Movement for Civil Rights, as we commemorate the revered hero of Cuba's wars for independence, the great patriot and freedom fighter, Antonio Maceo Grajales.

Hosted by Junta Patriotica Cubana Regional California:


A meeting and press conference is scheduled for 3 p.m. Friday at El Colmao restaurant, 2328 W Pico Blvd, Los Angeles.
For more information please contact Fernando Marquet:

Telephone: call 310.918.4283

    It so happens that Angel Castro, Fidel's Spanish father, who came to Cuba as a soldier to fight against Cuban independence, was part of the Spanish military unit that killed Antonio Maceo. After he became a wealthy landowner/businessman in Oriente provice, he also used (and abused) black Haitian laborers, though I expect he abused white Cuban ones as well. He was quite rich when he died in 1956, but he always had a bad reputation, and the Castros were never "high class" for the simple reason that they had money but no class.
