SATURDAY IN MIAMI: Ros-Lehtinen To Speak Before MAR For Cuba Meeting In Honor Of Brave Cuban Pro-Democracy Activists Jorge Luis Garcia Perez “Antunez” & His Wife Yris Perez Aguilera

Miami, Florida – Tomorrow Saturday, August 17th, Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) will speak before a meeting of the prominent Cuban exile organization MAR For Cuba. The breakfast meeting is in honor of the brave Cuban pro-democracy activists Jorge Luis Garcia Perez “Antunez” and his wife Yris Perez Aguilera. Antunez and Yris are currently visiting the U.S. for medical reasons.

WHO: Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, Antunez, Yris Perez Aguilera, Sylvia Iriondo, other members of MAR For Cuba and invited guests

WHEN: Saturday, August 17th at 9am; Cong. Ros-Lehtinen will speak at 9:30am

WHERE: The Big Five Club (600 SW 92 Avenue, Miami)

WHY: To honor and support the valiant work of Antunez and his wife; both are considered to be one of the most outspoken pro-democracy activists inside Cuba

Said Ros-Lehtinen, “It is always an honor to speak and meet with the women of MAR For Cuba, one of the most active anti-Castro organizations in South Florida. Saturday’s meeting is important as MAR will be recognizing the exceptional work of Antunez and Yris, two brave Cuban activists who have been harassed, beaten and detained by Castro’s thugs, with Antunez serving a 17 year prison sentence simply for asking that his human rights be respected. I would like to thank Sylvia Iriondo and the other outstanding and patriotic women of MAR for their continuing work on behalf of a free Cuba.
