20 years after the July 13, 1994 “13 de Marzo” Tugboat Massacre: Calls to Action
This page will be updated with new events to pay homage to the victims of the “13 de Marzo” tugboat that was attacked and sunk by agents of the Cuban State on July 13, 1994 causing the deaths of 37 men, women, and children.
