Earlier this week Babalu reader Lori sent us the story of Jorge E. Aluar, the Cuban political prisoner that recently made it to Miami after having his arms amputated while serving time in one of castro’s gulags.
I’ve just received another email from Lori with more and am posting it today, Good Friday:
Wednesday, we took up some money here at the firm and I was sent to take him the money, and the very many wishes that were sent from the office. My boyfriend took his camera and we took pictures.
It turns out that a Dr. Quirantes, an orthopedic surgeon and Oscar Haza decided to give him a surprise while on the show Wednesday night. They are donating a pair of kick ass prosthetic arms, that are worth between $120,000 and $130,000. They will be taking him to Washington very soon to do something about getting his wife and daughter out of Cuba.
After they amputaded his arms he was sent back to jail, and he was so depressed and without hope, he asked another prisoner in the jail to cut the veins in his feet and legs so he could die. Below are the scarred feet and ankles. Warning: pictures are rough.
This last attempt to leave Cuba, left them stranded on an island near Cancun, Mexico. A human smuggler and Ocean “Cayote” rescued them, and promised them safe passage to Maimi. Once he had them on his boat, he asked him for his relative’s number in the states. He called this guy’s aunt and asked her for ransom or he’d turn them over to the Cuban authorities. None of the family members who he called of the others that had escaped with him, had the kind of money he was asking for. All they could come up with was $2000. For that amount he dropped them off in Cancun and told them to find their own way. That is a whole other story, but he did tell us that two of the people who had escaped with him, were doctors from Holguin, and thanks to them and their help he made it through to the border.
We were at the house he’s staying at, for over an hour. There are so many things he told us, heartbraking and vomit enducing, but he’s finally here.
I also forgot to take a picture of his belly. Through the years he’s dedicated time to getting USA tatoos all over his belly.
Meet Mr. Aluar:
And as a special message for those like Steve Clemons and Mike Hunter, etal, who blindingly and willfully act as mouthpieces for the castro regime, here is a picture of Mr. Aluar’s leg, where he sought to bleed himself to death rather than live another day under the inhumanity that is fidel castro’s regime.
