To all Cubans who are in the streets of multiple cities in the country peacefully demonstrating to demand freedom, we say: you are not alone, the Cuban nation lives inside and outside the Island, we are one people and we will not stop until we recover freedom, homeland, and life.

We condemn the regime that has plunged the Cuban people into a deep crisis, marked by hunger and structural failures in all public systems; from health to water and fuel supplies. We warn that the State/Party is and will be incapable of guaranteeing basic services due to the ineptitude of the functionaries, the theft of national heritage by the ruling oligarchic class, and the systematic violation of the civil, economic, and political rights of citizens.

We call on the police and military forces not to repress peaceful protesters. You have the option not to participate in violence and to stand on the side of the people. The democratic future is approaching, where law enforcement protects citizens, and in that new system where there will be a Rule of Law and justice will be exercised, there is room for all Cubans.

We demand that the regime immediately proceed to the unconditional release of all political prisoners, the end of repression, and the suspension of any decree, law, or practice that hinders the exercise of freedom of expression, association, public assembly, press, movement, and demonstration.

We invite all our brothers in the Cuban democratic movement to work together and continue advancing a transition project in accordance with the principles of the Agreement for Democracy for the progress of our nation.

We call on the international community to support the recovery of the sovereignty of our people and to demand the fulfillment of all electoral guarantees, including freedom of expression, association, and dissemination of information so that Cuban citizens can decide on democratic change and the regime must abide by the will of the people.

Our organizations unite in support of those who courageously demand freedom on the streets today. The change from dictatorship to democracy is urgent for our people. The only way out of the crisis is to get rid of the dictatorship.
