Happy Birthday, Tito Kayak!

I am sorry I missed this item yesterday, but here it is [thanks to Lisa Sánchez]: Alberto de Jesús Mercado, also known as “Tito Kayak,” was born on July 24, 1958.  [It seems that many heroic figures (and events) were born around this date; Tito shares a birthday with none other than Simón Bolívar.] Happy belated birthday, Tito Kayak!

“Tito Kayak” is an activist who is paddling through the Caribbean for the release of Oscar López Rivera. Yesterday he arrived in Nevis, where he celebrated his 54th birthday. His admirers are also celebrating and sending “blessings for what he does best.” According to the Facebook page “Kayakeando por el Caribe por Oscar Lopez Rivera,” for Tito Kayak, “the best gift is the support of his people.”
