104-10166-10226: UNIDAD REVOLUCIONARIA

July 1962: From a CIA profile of UR: "There is one possible explanation for 'JURE' hope of gaining UR support. Among those mentioned as possible leaders of this new group were Justo Carrillo of Agrupacion Montecristi. AMTAUP-1 reported in July 1962 that Carrillo had given monetary aid to Juan Medina Vega of Accion Cubana, an organization affiliated with UR since its founding. Medina was then General Secretary of UR. Carrillo may have felt his influence with UR was strong enough to bring about UR entry into 'JURE'."

104-10138-10441: CUBAN COUNTERREVOLUTIONARY HANDBOOK - 10 OCT. 1962 - FBI

10/10/62: "HISTORY (OF MRAC): Founded Jan-Feb 1959 by Tarafa and Reyes and composed of sugar cane growers, cattlemen, and industrialists, mainly from Camaguey province. Later joined by peasants, members of the Rebel Army, Militias, and pre-revolutionary Army. Claim to have offered Varona leadership of MRAC in 1959, but Varona refused. MRAC (under Tarafa) has not been united with any sector or political leader in exile."

104-10226-10220: AT WAVE DIRECTION AMTAUP-1 AND IDENS MADE SEPARATE VISITS

See this 11-29-62 memo, where the rarely seen Amtaup-1 and "IDENS" (the Alanis brothers) visited the group UR (Unidad Revoutionario). Two pages later, the Alanis brothers are identified as "IDENS". This suggests that the Alanis brothers may be AMTAUP-1 and AMTAUP-2.

104-10166-10226: UNIDAD REVOLUCIONARIA

January 1963: (AMTAUP-1) is original founder in (Cuba) of MRAC; he is now in the JMWAVE area and was recruited as a KUTUBE (FI) asset; close personal friend of Jose Rodriguez Espada, UR Secretary General; antagonist of Juan Medina, self-appointed coordinator of (MR)AC in the Torriente faction of UR; agent plans to incorporate/affiliate his MRAC group with the UR under Rodriguez Espada."

HSCA Segregated CIA Collection (staff notes): 180-10141-10251.

10/1/63: "Cisneros tells AMTAUP-1 that Ray to visit Betancourt later in week to report on status of JURE negotiations with U.S. and promises made to Ray by RFK during recent interviews."
