Two Cuban dissidents killed in a car crash in Cuba will be remembered Friday in Hialeah on the one-year anniversary of their deaths.
Cuban blogger Yoani Sanchez made a stop in Washington D.C. as part of her nearly three month trip outside her homeland.
Just hours after Cuba’s best-known blogger was arrested, Yoani Sanchez was released. The Cuban government’s goal? Stop Sanchez from causing “a media show to harm the proper conduct” of the trial involving Cuban dissident Oswaldo Paya.
A Spanish man held in Cuba went on trial Friday in connection with a car crash in which prominent dissident Oswaldo Paya was killed, and several government opponents, including dissident Cuban blogger Yoani Sanchez, were detained in the eastern city where the proceedings were taking place.
Ofelia Acevedo, widow of Cuban dissident Oswaldo Paya, told CBS News in Havana that she wants to speak directly to the survivors of the car crash that killed her husband.
The life and passion of one of Cuba’s most well known voices of the dissident movement was celebrated Tuesday at a special mass in Miami.
A Cuban dissident who fought for free elections on the communist island has died. Oswaldo Paya was killed in a car crash that his daughter now blames on the Castro regime.
I will probably never meet anyone braver in my life than Oswaldo Paya. It was June 2005 and I was in Havana for The Miami Herald. I had been meeting with both government officials and dissidents, writing a series of columns about the island.
