MADRID — Around 50 anti-Castro protesters have rallied outside the Cuban
embassy in Madrid to commemorate the first anniversary of the death of a
dissident hunger striker.
The political exiles gathered behind a banner reading, "Cuba, democracy
now!" and held aloft photographs of Orlando Zapata Tamayo, who died on
Feb. 23, 2010, following an 83-day hunger strike.
In the absence of any reaction from within the embassy the protesters
shouted at the building's security cameras.
"You've still got time to quit," bellowed protest leader Yuniel Jacomino
Martinez at the unseen diplomatic staff inside. He said Saturday that a
similar rally was also being held outside the Cuban consulate in the
northeastern port city of Barcelona.
