Babalawo (Santeria Priest) in the Cross Hairs

Authorities of the Institute of Housing of this province again threatened the Santería priest Raúl Arias with eviction from the place where he lives with his family, a garage abandoned by the state-owned Service Enterprise.

Arias explained that at a meeting which took place last week at this state entity, he learned that his case had no solution because with the planned remodeling of Martí Park and construction of a boulevard, the property which he inhabits will be used to store materials required for the construction site. That is why he will have to abandon the place.

“If they evict us, I will go on a hunger strike in front of the Popular Power offices”, Arias said.
