Miami memorial honoring Castro’s victims

The annual Cuban Memorial is on display beginning today at Miami’s Tamiami Park (the site is better known as the site of the County Fair). The memorial features 10,000 white crosses, each one symbolic of a life taken by Castro either through execution or by dying in the Florida Straits. The Cuban Memorial’s website has pictures and tons of info. The Miami Herald has an article.

The Cuban Memorial opened today with a press conference. It will remain in place through Sunday, with a number of events taking place onsite throughout the weekend. Visit if you can.
