The footage broadcast on televisions throughout the world filled us with anguish and pain, and revived the memory of the deaths of our family members, victims of an act of terrorism perpetrated on a Cuban passenger plane. One of the masterminds of the attack, Luis Posada Carriles, enjoys impunity in the United States.
We share with you the profound pain felt on seeing at home the chair of a loved one left empty because of those who practice hatred.
We accompany you in your sentiments, let us join efforts so that other families do not have to weep for the loss of loved ones as a consequence of terrorist acts.
Havana, September 9, 2011.
