August 7, 1960: Castro banned all religious TV and radio broadcasts in Cuba

leave a comment »

On this day in 1960, Fidel Castro banned all religious TV and radio broadcasts.   It was a reaction to The Catholic Church condemning the rise of communism in Cuba.

Not much later, the Catholic schools were closed and I remember that.   Our beloved Maristas in was closed and some of the clergy expelled.    I lived through all of that.

Years later, I learned that the school grounds became Villa Maristas, or the place where political prisoners like Armando Valladares were tortured.

P.S. You can listen to my show (Canto Talk) and follow me on Twitter.
