WASHINGTON – Over one hundred people protested outside Congress on Wednesday to call for the liberation of Venezuela and Cuba from socialist rule.
The event, which was organized by Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, was attended by Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), as well as Ofelia Acevedo, the wife of the late Cuban dissident Oswaldo Payá, who was killed in mysterious circumstances in 2012.

The event, entitled “No Che Noche,” also sought to bring attention to the crimes of communist revolutionary Ernesto “Che” Guevara, whose role in the Cuban revolution led to the murder and persecution of hundreds of thousands of political dissidents.
One of the attendees included Baptist minister Mario Felix Lleonart, who fled from Cuba in 2016 as a result of religious persecution, and has now written a book entitled Cuban Confessions. full story
