Senate Honors Wilman Villar Mendoza

Feb 2, 2012 | Blog

On Wednesday evening, the U.S. Senate passed a resolution sponsored by Senators Rubio and Menendez honoring the life of dissident and democracy activist Wilman Villar Mendoza.
 
Mendoza died on January 19 after a 56-day hunger strike to bring attention to his unjust imprisonment. He was arrested in November 2011 and sentenced to four years in prison for his participation in a peaceful demonstration. Mendoza was a member of Unión Patriótica de Cuba, a group the Castro regime considers illegitimate because the members criticize the leadership.
 
Mendoza will be remembered for his sacrifice on behalf of the cause of freedom.
 
Senate Resolution 366 is available here.
