Payá, a victim of communism

In that same act, Rosa María Payá assured that it was “time to stop” the “factory of victims of communism.”

“That fight begins by teaching the evils of communism. That is why I am so grateful that it was decided to rename this part of LeJeune Avenue in honor of my father,” she said.

“Honoring him today is also honoring all the victims, but it is also raising our voices to denounce the thousands of victims in Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Ukraine, China and many other countries. This is not something from the past, it is something that is happening right now,” he lamented.
