Sample text

Del Rosario became a strong opponent of the Castro regime and joined a group that planned to sabotage government buildings. But the group was discovered and del Rosario was imprisoned. As a result of the efforts by the Committee of 75, del Rosario was released. He was flown to the United States with his wife and children in 1979. T H E M A R I E L B O AT L I F T Meanwhile, on the island, some Cubans dared to express their opposition to the Castro dictatorship. In April 1980, a small group of Cubans looking to escape from the Castro regime smashed through the gates of Peru’s embassy in Havana in a stolen bus.

A nation’s embassy is considered part of its own soil and, therefore, cannot be invaded by the country in which it is located. Peruvian diplomats offered asylum, or protection, to the Cubans. As word of the incident spread across Havana, thousands of other Cubans appeared at the gates, also looking for asylum. They wanted to escape from the Castro dictatorship. Almost 11,000 adults and children were admitted to the embassy. At first, the Castro government forced the refugees to remain inside the embassy, where there was not enough food or housing for such a large number of people.

Castro permitted exiles to return to the island and visit family members. They included leading members of the Cuban exile community who had formed the Committee of 75, a group of prominent Cubans in Florida. As a result of talks between the Committee of 75 and Castro, the Cuban dictator agreed to release political opponents of his regime who had been jailed and tortured. But little else was accomplished because Castro made no effort to end his dictatorship. Meanwhile, some Cuban exiles had been expressing strong opposition to discussions with the communist dictator.
