In late 1974, another militant, anti-Castro group, Omega 7, was founded by Eduardo Arocena. His reason for organizing this group was his belief that the anti-Castro movement was not active enough in seeking the violent overthrow of the Castro Government. During an eight-year period beginning in 1975, Omega 7 members were reportedly responsible for between 30 and 50 bombings and two assassinations. Omega 7-claimed acts occurred in the New York City metropolitan area, the Miami metropolitan area, and Washington D.C. Among these acts were attacks against individuals sympathetic to or businesses dealing with Communist Cuba, Cuban Government interests, and interests of other countries dealings with Cuba.VideoVideo: 2008 Campaign to release Eduardo Arocena

Groups and individuals included in TRAC's database range from actual perpetrators of social or political violence to more passive groups that support or condone (perhaps unwittingly) such violence. The spectrum of violence represented by these groups is vast, from Jihadists who bomb train stations to financial institutions that transfer funds. Some groups that originally engaged in violence but have since become legitimate political parties are included to provide historical perspective. TRAC is in no way attempting to determine whether groups or individuals are terrorists -- only to convey reported information about their activities and official State status. While TRAC attempts to ensure the accuracy of its TRAC database, the entries in the database are from numerous different sources. Hence, TRAC cannot and does not warrant the accuracy of the entries in its database. The editors of TRAC may modify these entries at any time and welcome comments and suggested corrections or additions.
