.- Next February 20-23, volunteers from various countries will be placing more than 10,000 white crosses, each inscribed with a name of a victim of the Castro government in Cuba, in a memorial to be set up at Miami’s Tamiami Park.

In the center of the memorial will be a large white cross dedicated to “the unknown victim,” those victims of repression on the island about whom little information is known.

Organizers of the memorial said the project is of a “strictly spiritual nature,” and they invited anyone interested to have Masses said for the eternal repose of the victims of repression in Cuba.

They also called for prayers for the thousands of Cubans who “have drowned in the Florida straits attempting to gain freedom,” and for “those suffering in prison for their political beliefs.”
