14ymedio, Havana, 13 April 2015 — The Cuban activist Guillermo Fariñas
has been selected to receive the 2015 Truman-Reagan Medal of Freedom, as
he himself announced Monday via his Twitter account.

The Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, a non-profit organization
based in Washington DC, offers this award annually to individuals or
institutions involved in the fight for freedom and democracy and opposed
to communism and other forms of tyranny.

Since the first edition of the award, in 1999, those who have received
this distinction include Pope John Paul II (in 2005), former Polish
President Lech Walesa (in 2006) and former Secretary of US Defense
Donald Rumsfeld (in 2012), among others.
The Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation aims to honor the more than
100 million victims of communism worldwide and the freedom of those
still living under totalitarian regimes.
