Florida Schools to Teach Students about the Evils of Communism Following Legislation Signed by DeSantis

In addition, every November 7 will be known as “Victims of Communism Day” in Florida

Governor Ron DeSantis signed a legislation Monday establishing that November 7 will be known each year as “Victims of Communism Day” in the state of Florida. He also explained that the evils of this ideology will be taught in schools.

At the Freedom Tower, an emblematic building in Miami where the first exiles from Cuba were received in the early 1960s and surrounded by officials and leaders of the Cuban community and exile, Republican DeSantis signed HB 395.

Rosa María Payá, daughter of opposition leader Oswaldo Payá, who died in 2012 along with fellow opposition member Harold Cepero in a traffic accident that, according to her family’s complaints to international organizations, was provoked by Cuban security agents, thanked DeSantis for this initiative.

Payá, who spoke from a lectern marked “Honoring the Victims of Communism,” mentioned her father and the more than 1,000 political prisoners that are currently in Cuba in her speech and accused the Cuban regime of having caused the collapse of democracies in Venezuela and Nicaragua.
