Luis Posada Carriles, one of the masterminds behind the mid-flight destruction of a Cuban civilian aircraft, a torturer in the Venezuelan DISIP, and a drug trafficker who was part of the Iran-Contra scandal, participated in a march on Thursday, March 25 organized by musician Gloria Estefan in favor of dissidents in Havana on the payroll of the U.S. Department of State.

The former CIA agent, responsible for the Cubana Airlines sabotage and the death of dozens of young Venezuelans and Central Americans while he directed political cleansing campaigns in Venezuela, El Salvador, and Guatemala, joined in the anti-Cuba propaganda campaign.
The demonstration in "little Havana" - supported by the Mafia press and groups linked to terrorism against Cuba such as the Cuban-American National Foundation, Alpha 66, F-4 Comandos, Brothers to the Rescue, and diverse NGOs financed by USAID - was composed mainly of senior citizens.
Gloria Estefan confessed her links with the CIA last August. In an interview with the television program "Al rojo vivo" on Telemundo, she spoke about how the CIA approached her when she was working as a customs agent in the Miami airport.
She recalled then that her father, José Fajardo, was a bodyguard of the Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista before leaving the island, when he was later recruited as a mercenary in the force organized by the CIA for the failed Bay of Pigs invasion.
One year ago, Estefan and her spouse, producer Emilio Estefan, were accused by a Dominican newspaper of investing in a human trafficking scheme between Cuba and Mexico, which connected them with illegal operations developed by the Cuban-American National Foundation and the Gulf Cartel, the network of Mexican drug traffickers.
Besides Gloria Estefan and her husband Emilio Estefan, other local politicians such as Miami Mayor Tomás Regalado and senatorial candidate Marco Rubio, took part in the march.
Posada Carriles, who claims he has various health problems which prevent him being transported to El Paso by land for an upcoming trial, was escorted by various figures who have been accused of being authors of terrorist acts or participants in distinct CIA paramilitary aggressions against Cuba.
This is the sort of thing that occurs in Miami, a sanctuary for terrorists.
