Buenos Aires, Oct 6 (Prensa Latina) Cubans and Argentines on Thursday recall in Buenos Aires Jesús Cejas and Crescencio Galañena, two diplomats of the Caribbean nation who were murdered during the last military dictatorship in Argentina (1976-1983).

On the occasion of the Day of the Victims of State Terrorism against Cuba, a new slab will be placed in the Barrancas de Belgrano square, near where the young men were kidnapped on August 9, 1976.

Members of the diplomatic mission and workers of the Caribbean country, Cuban residents, the Argentine group Barrios por la Memoria y Justicia, and members of the Movement of Solidarity with Cuba will participate in the ceremony.

Cejas and Galañena were kidnapped 46 years ago by a regime task force, a few steps from the Cuban Embassy, and later murdered in the Automotores Orletti clandestine detention and torture center, one of several that operated as extermination sites.

Every October 6, Cuba pays tribute to 73 victims of a bomb attack on a Cubana de Aviación plane, perpetrated in 1976 by terrorists Luis Posada Carriles and Orlando Bosch, at the service of the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).

It also recalls more than 3,400 people who died due to Washington’s aggressions.
