This Saturday, July 20, Independent and Democratic Cuba (CID) has opened a new office in the Municipality of Marianao to honor the memory of the leader of the Christian Liberation Movement, Oswaldo Paya Sardinas, murdered by the dictatorship along with his compatriot Harold Cepero, 22 July 2012 near the city of Bayamo.
On July 22, 2012, at about two in the afternoon, the car driven by the Spanish politician Angel Carromero was hit by a red Lada, one of the cars that had been following and harassing it. In mysterious circumstances, Oswaldo Paya and Harold Cepero who were in the back seat, were pulled alive from the accident and then the dictatorship announced the death of both.
On Sunday July 21, 2013, eight activists from the October 10th township CID delegation met in pantheon of the Daughters and Fathers of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul in Colon Cemetery shelter where his family laid Oswaldo Paya’s body before leaving for the United States. The members of the CID delegation laid flowers, carried a Cuban flag, sang the national anthem and prayed for the repose of the martyr and their comrade in the struggle.
CID supports the repeated request of the Payá family and the Christian Liberation Movement to hold an international inquiry into the events that led to the murder of Oswaldo Paya and Harold Cepero.
