When pain multiplies

After several months of threats and attempts of attacks, some failed, towards the Cuban government and other areas of the Caribbean and Central America, on October 6th, 1976, one of the most brutal acts of terrorism was executed by counterrevolutionaries in the service of the CIA.

Stick to the water Felo, Felo, stick to the water! These were the last words of the captain of the CU-455 aircraft
of Cubana de Aviacion and in an act of lucidity within despair, he turned the aircraft to the side, thus preventing it from falling on a nearby beach. Meanwhile, from places near the coast of Barbados, people got to see how the plane fell into the sea.

That day, 11 Guyanese young people, five citizens of the Democratic  Republic of Korea and 57 Cubans lost their lives, the majority of the youth fencing team, who returned from successfully competing in the fourth Central American and Caribbean Championship of that sport.

About the victims, Fidel explained to the world that they were humble young people, workers or students and
sportsmen who were modestly and determinedly accomplishing  the tasks assigned by the country.
In full flight the plane was destroyed by an explosive charge, a few minutes after its takeoff from Barbados

Although some imperialist agency tried to misrepresent the event and link  it to a possible mechanical failure, all the pilot's words transmitted to the Barbados airport were recorded; in addition to other evidence that would
be added during the investigation process.

The main leaders of the attack were the terrorists of Cuban origin Luis Posada Carriles and Orlando Bosch Ávila, both employees of the United States empire, who remained unpunished for this crime, and protected by the US

Considering the event, October 6th  was established as the Day of Victims of Terrorism. Likewise, in other
nations such as Venezuela the event is remembered, proclaiming the cessation of impunity and violent actions
against our country.

It has been 43 years since that terrorist act had an entire town mourning, and it continues latent in each
generation of Cubans, who, despite not having witnessed the pain of the sad news, we feel sorry for those
young people and their families, who will always bear the stigma of being victims of terrorism.

As the Commander in Chief Fidel Castro Ruz uttered, in the act of farewell to the victims' grief: We cannot say
that pain is shared. The pain multiplies. Millions of Cubans cry today with the loved ones of the victims of the
abominable crime. And when a spirited and vigorous people cries, injustice trembles!
