A Cuba si va in carcere anche per questo

Uno dei tanti, il cui volto appare qui solo perché è il "prigioniero della settimana" sul sito-memorial dei prigionieri politici cubani. Sacerdote (già di per sé colpa grave a Cuba) ortodosso, Ricardo Medina Salabarría (qui sotto la sua scheda), ha celebrato una funzione religiosa in memoria delle vittime del regime di Fidel Castro Ruz. In galera.

Rev. Ricardo Medina Salabarría

Charge: Religious (Orthodox minister)
Sentence: Pending
Prison: Seguridad del Estado (State Security headquarters)
Organization: Orthodox Christians Missionaries for Freedom and a member of the General Assembly to Promote the Civil Society in Cuba.
Review: Rev. Medina Salabarría is an orthodox minister in Cuba. He conducted one of the Cuban Memorial religious services within Cuba to honor the victims of the Castro Regime. (The Cuban Memorial is an annual event in Miami in which over 10,000 crosses bearing the verified names of those who have lost their lives as a direct result of Fidel Castro are placed in a makeshift cemetery: www.memorialcubano.org)
Rev. Medina Salabarría was arrested in July-2005 as he was on his way to a peaceful demonstration in favor of cuban political prisoners.
Since the beginning the Castro regime has not tolerated religion in Cuba, regardless of denomination Catholic, protestant or orthodox.
