October 6th: a day for pain in Cuba
On October 6, 1976, one of the most atrocious terrorist actions ever committed was perpetrated against Cuba off the coast of Barbados; the bombing in midair of CUT 1201 of Cubana airlines.
The terrorist attack claimed the lives of all who were on board the plane. Most of them young people that made up the team of 24 athletes, who had won for Cuba, the Central American and Caribbean Fencing Championships.
Since then, every October 6th, is a reason for pain in Cuba, but also a constant denunciation of the perpetrators to pay for their crimes, as they are free in the US with the protection of the US administration.
Luis Posada Carriles and Orlando Bosch Avila were responsible for the assassination, and true justice still remains elusive.
People worldwide who are aware about this case also feel outraged and along with the Cuban people demand punishment for the terrorists, authors of other terrorist actions.
