On this day in 1960, Fidel Castro banned all religious TV and radio broadcasts. It was a reaction to The Catholic Church condemning the rise of communism in Cuba.
Not much later, the Catholic schools were closed and I remember that. Our beloved Maristas was closed and some of the clergy expelled. I lived through all of that.
Years later, I learned that the school grounds became Villa Maristas, or the place where political prisoners like Armando Valladares were tortured.
