Gustavo Pardo Valdes - The profane

Born in 1946 in Havana, in his profane life Brethren Gustavo is a geotechnical specialist and author of several books on Freemasonry. It was noted as a powerful speaker of democracy in the castrist Cuban system and for his democratic beliefs, he was arrested by the Cuban government, being therefore a political prisoner. After he got out of prison, our Brethren continued to speak in favor of democracy, assuming the risk under a regime of which many nations labeled as totalitarian.
