Call to Action on July 13, 2014: 20 Minutes of Silence for 20 Years of Injustice in "13 de Marzo" Tugboat Sinking

“Don't raise your voice, improve your argument." - Desmond Tutu 

The argument has been made and the reports written and the guilt of the Castro regime established by international human rights bodies such as the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, but twenty years later there is still no justice.

The argument has been made and cannot be improved. Screaming and shouting in a world full of noise will not achieve justice and undermines the seriousness of this crime. We are supporting all nonviolent actions that respect the dignity of those killed, and their families.

Please share and encourage friends wherever they are on July 13, 2014 at 3:00pm to join in a 20 minute moment of silence. Gather in a group or individually and take a photo at the end of the vigil holding up the above image calling for justice.
