The unity of all Cubans has been the cornerstone of these days. Promoters of Cuba Decide along with other activists, artists and Cubans residing in Los Angeles request action from the presidents gathered at the Summit of the Americas and led a peaceful demonstration and international event for a Free Cuba.
On Wednesday afternoon, summoned by the Cuba Decide Platform, Cubans in LA gathered around the Convention Center to demonstrate in favor of the above points and demand the release of political prisoners in Cuba. From there, they marched to the event organized by Cuba Decide, which was attended by dozens of young people from all over Latin America, members of Juventud Lac, the Cuban activists and artists gathered at the summit, and a representation of the Nicaraguan and Venezuelan diasporas.
In a panel with Rosa María Payá, Chilean Senator Javier Macaya, Vice President of ParlAmericas, announced his integration to the Transatlantic Parliamentary Forum for a free Cuba and read his commitment to the action proposals of Cuba Decide for presidents, including to:
Stop making concessions to the Cuban dictatorship and take actions in support of the Cuban People’s right to democracy as established by the Inter-American Democratic Charter.
Denounce State terrorism and crimes against humanity committed by the Cuban regime.
Denounces the international aggressions of the Cuban dictatorship such as its alliance with Russia and the creation of the biggest migratory crisis of Cubans in the United States in the last 40 years.
Demand the release of all political prisoners in Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua.
Vigorously enforce national and international laws that prohibit the Cuban dictatorship’s modern practices of slavery and human trafficking. Cancel any existing contract through the Cuban state. Hire Cuban workers directly.
Use all available tools, including the Inter-American Treaty of Reciprocal Assistance, to address the threat posed by the Cuban Regime. The Cuban dictatorship must continue to be excluded from the Summit of the Americas until it complies with the Inter-American Democratic Charter.
Several of these requests are also found in the document agreed upon by all the Cuban organizations gathered during the Summit of the Americas. You can read it here.
