Preparations have begun in Miami and other parts of the World for the third annual Cuban Memorial on February 2005.
MIAMI/FLORIDA/January 14, 2005 (www.netforcuba.org) - Next February the Cuban Memorial will commemorate its second anniversary. Once again the Cuban Memorial will reinforce its commitment to denounce the horrible crimes committed by Fidel Castro’s regime.
In the first two Cuban Memorials, more than 10,000 crosses were solemnly displayed at Tamiami Park in Miami, Florida. Each cross bore the name of a person who lost his or her life because of Fidel Castro and his henchmen.
In an interview with Net for Cuba International, chief coordinator Mr. Renato Gomez said the Third Annual Cuban Memorial will take place next February 18th through the 20th at Tamiami Park. The schedule is as follows:

During the Cuban Memorial week religious services will be offered throughout the World in solidarity with the events in Miami. We encourage persons of all denominations to solicit their churches, temples and places of worship to remember those who have perished by offering the appropriate services.
We ask those who schedule religious services in their hometowns to please visit the Masses and religious services section at www.memorialcubano.org and provide the details so others in the same geographic area may participate in the services.
