The last time Juan Mario Gutiérrez spoke to his grandfather, the
10-year-old held up a homemade fishing rod fashioned from a tree branch
and promised to catch a whopper of a fish during his refugee crossing
from Cuba to Miami.
The boy died shortly afterward in a clash with the Cuban Coast Guard
just eight miles from Havana Bay, his 1994 death becoming case No. 8500
in a newly released database of victims of the Cuban revolution.
Juan Mario shares space with 9,093 other people who lost their lives
fighting for, battling against -- or simply fleeing -- the Cuban revolution.
After more than a decade of painstaking research by two Cuban exiles
with the nonprofit group Cuba Archive, for the first time their results
are available in a searchable database on the Web. The Truth and Memory
Project database atwww.cubaarchive.orgwaslaunched Jan. 1, thanks to a
$52,000 grant from Freedom House, an advocacy organization founded by
You mean funded by the US government.
Please show where any of the published data is incorrect Dan.
Please show where any mainstream human rights groups like Amnesty
International will support your outrageous claims. I'm afraid US
government funding has tanted this whole project of yours. Everyone
knows what a pack of liars they are.
