    Payá’s dream of a free Cuba will come true

    When I learned about the death of Oswaldo Payá, a rocking-chair image came to my mind. He sat in it each time I visited his Havana house. Then another image — this one not cozy at all — quickly popped into my head: the drawn window shades.

    This was how Oswaldo tried to hide us from the prying eyes of the state agent who lived next door and constantly monitored the well-known dissident. As Oswaldo swayed slowly back and forth in the chair giving off an air of composure, I tangibly felt the heaviness of his everyday life.

    I remember how impressed I was by Oswaldo’s patient manners, analytical mind and compassion. The only time I saw him restless was when I delivered a personal letter written by the late Czech president Vaclav Havel. That day, I had a flight booked to depart Cuba so I thought there was not enough time to respond. Yet, Oswaldo insisted on writing a reply. “Okay, I will wait. Go ahead,” I encouraged him. But Oswaldo was a deep thinker who didn’t like to rush things.
    Payá was a true hero fighting the good fight, which remained in Cuba and gave up his life in the struggle against the Castroit tyrannical regime.

    Getting at the truth of car crash that killed Oswaldo Payá
    Investigate the crash that killed Oswaldo Payá - The Washington Post

    By Editorial Board, Published: August 18 The Washington Post

    ON THE AFTERNOON of July 22, in Cuba’s eastern Granma province, a blue Hyundai rental car was in a terrible accident. The driver was Angel Carromero, leader of the youth wing of Spain’s ruling party. Sitting next to him in the front passenger seat was Jens Aron Modig, president of the youth league of Sweden’s Christian Democratic party. Both suffered minor injuries. Cuban dissidents Oswaldo Payá and Harold Cepero were in the back seat and were killed.

    Mr. Payá was a leading voice for freedom in Cuba, champion of the Varela Project, a petition drive in 2002 seeking a national referendum to guarantee democracy. Many organizers of the Varela Project were later arrested by Fidel Castro’s security forces, but Mr. Payá was undeterred and continued to push for a free Cuba. The accident that took his life was blamed by the authorities on reckless driving by Mr. Carromero, who has been charged and is being held in Cuba. In a video made by the authorities just after the accident, Mr. Carromero says that he saw a pothole, braked and lost control of the car, which careened off the road and hit a tree. Mr. Modig, now back in Sweden, says that he was asleep in the car and doesn’t remember what happened.
    It is clear that the majority of the damage is to the rear half of the vehicle. I would describe it as if it were crushed from behind. To believe that the deaths occurred because the vehicle hit a tree would most likely stem from a belief that the tree was coming from behind at high speed.

    If the Castroit regime has nothing to hide, given the high international profile of Mr. Paya, an international investigation should be allowed by the regime. The Castroit tyrannical regime has dedicated itself to a campaign of character assassination, ranging from videos on TV over data going back years on the man's driving record, to financials of his family in the state controlled media in Cuba and affiliated sites abroad.

    Fresh from the Cuban rumor mill: more on the “accident”
    Fresh from the Cuban rumor mill: more on the “accident”

    By Carlos Eire, on August 12, 2012


    A rumor has begun to make the rounds, as is so common in Castrolandia. It is supposedly a leak from within the Ministry of the Interior, from someone who knows all the details of the "accident" that claimed the lives of Oswaldo Payá and Harold Cepero.

    This anonymous source claims that Payá's car was indeed being tailed by two other vehicles and that it was forced off the road. But this is not all. The allegations being made by this anonymous insider are full of shocking twists and turns, both literally and figuratively.

    In some ways, what this report claims sounds more credible than the two other versions of the "accident": 1. The official report that blames the Spaniard Angel Carromero for speeding and losing control; 2. The speculation that the car was driven off the road with the intention of killing its occupants.
    This hypothesis is as close to the truth as it can be. Obviously this was an intimidation attempt that went south. This type of “accidents’ has happened before, in one case involving Paya’s VW van similar incident two weeks before the fatal accident, and Laura Pollán premeditate murder disguised as a mortal illness. The Castroit left wing regime version of the “accident “, is taking at face value, something that will not happen if it were a right-wing regime, since the Progressives, Lefties and the Mainstream Media would be screaming bloody murder demanding swift action and justice. But in the Castro brothers’ fiefdom it wouldn’t happen, like parrots they simple will toe the official line.

    Of course this is the fault of the U.S. embargo against Cuba. If only we understood that a failed policy of 50 years must be stopped and all trade and tourism be opened up with Cuba, this would never have happened. Didn't Spielberg, the great moralist, tell us his eight hours with Castro were the most important hours of his life? Maybe it's all just Bush's fault. Hello people there are no coincidences under the Castroit regime.

    As bad as this double murder is, it's not as bad as the massacre of nearly 40 people (including children) who were fleeing Castros’ paradise on the tugboat "13th of March." A number of survivors have testified to the atrocity, but nothing has been done, because practically anybody really care except for a few people.

    Cuban dissident's widow does not buy accident story
    Cuban dissident's widow does not buy accident story | Fox News Latino

    EFE
    Ofelia Acevedo, the widow of Cuban dissident Oswaldo Paya, once again on Wednesday rejected the government version that her husband's death in a car crash last month was an accident and renewed her call for an "independent" investigation into the matter.
    All of Paya's relatives continue to be "very grief-stricken" over the death of the human rights activist and on Wednesday night a Mass will be celebrated for him in a private home in the Cuban capital, Acevedo told Efe in Havana.

    Paya and fellow Cuban opposition figure Harold Cepero died on July 22 in a traffic accident near the city of Bayamo, more than 750 kilometers (465 miles) from Havana, as they were riding in a vehicle driven by Spaniard Angel Carromero. A Swedish citizen, Jens Aron Modig, was also in the car.
    Payá’s family has long insisted that there’s evidence Carromero was rammed and forced off the road by another vehicle, presumably driven by the State Security agents who constantly tailed the respected dissident.

    Oswaldo Payá Sardińas and Harold Cepero Escalante: Murdered
    Notes from the Cuban Exile Quarter: Oswaldo Payá Sardińas and Harold Cepero Escalante: Murdered

    Text of the Rosa Maria Payá press conference on February 28 at the FHC

    Today my father would have turned 61 years old. Today my mother, my brothers and I will not have his always optimistic and hopeful physical presence. 221 days today that the parents of our friend Harold Cepero Escalante are living in the pain of never seeing their charismatic and young son.

    My father and Harold found themselves immersed in the Peoples Path campaign that offers a way to move Cuba towards democracy, a path of reconciliation advocated by the majority of the Cuban opposition, a nonviolent option for freedom and prosperity of our people, given the lack of options of a government that has nothing to offer its citizens.
    The evidence clearly shows that this was a set up assassination by the Castroit regime. They kill and spread the fear of death trying not to leave any evidence.
