Cuban Resistance Day

Fifteen years ago, on August 5th, 1994 a spontaneous uprising was born, in Havana, Cuba. The demonstration which took place across from Havana Harbor, was a testament of Cubans desire for freedom.

Today August 5, 2009, all over the world, we remember, "El Día de la Resistencia Cubana" (Cuban Resistance Day). May their wings spread as did those of us who left, but may they do so, with out having to leave.
