Castro regime did not trust in the decency of Cuban people and sent the officers of oppressive political police to Santiago de Cuba by the end of last week where the hearse with Castro’s ashes broke and his minions buried him in secret.
During the Castro funeral the UNPACU dissidents battling with the propaganda of the regime, that was unfortunately rebroadcasted and reprinted by the thousands of journalists around the world recorded a video (video only in Spanish) with the voluntary statements of Cubans on Castro. “Fidel Castro is not the people, FidelCastro is the devil according to the people”, one interviewee says on the video.
