Gus Venegas was born in 1952 a few months before after a Bautista's coup that ended fifty years of democracy and civil liberties in Cuba. Nearly all of Gus' kin supported a Revolution that supported a return of the Republic. The Venegas family witnessed the transformation of the Cuban Revolution into the Western Hemisphere's most oppressive political, economic, and cultural dictatorship. They left Cuba in 1966 when Castro and President Johnson agreed to a legal and orderly departure of Cuban exiles.
Venegas is the author of Memories from the Land of the Intolerant Tyrant. Venegas says this book which details life under Castro, is his vegeance. "The truth is our vengeance".
