MASS FOR ZAPATA IN BANES: FROM EASTERN CUBA

Spanish post
June 30 2010

Last Sunday, June 27, 2010, dissidents in the eastern part of the country were allowed to attend a mass for Orlando Zapata Tamapy in Banes, where he was born and where his family lives. On the 26th the political police forces tried to block two women, from Holguin province, from entering Zapata’s mother, Reina Tamayo’s, house; but they finally managed to do and went to mass at 9:00 am. When the mass was over, those attending put on T-shirts with a photo of the dissident who died on a hunger strike, and went to the local cemetery to visit his grace. There the 18 participants shouted Zapata Vive!

The political police in the person of a major visted Reina and told her they could only shout three times.

Note: This information came from Reina Luisa Tamayo Danger, mother of the martyr Orlando Zapata Tamayo, by telephone.
