Become a promoter of Cuba Decide. Take action. Call or write your Senator or Representative. Let them know you support Cuba Decide and the right for all Cubans to decide their future.
It is evident that Cuba’s constitution and the electoral system currently in place actively impedes free expression and allows the government to disobey the sovereign will of the citizenry. Regime officials and government authorities, including those involved in the electoral process, apply the law in an arbitrary and oppressive manner. In practice and on a daily basis, they violate the civil and political rights of Cubans, who continue being victims of repression by the political police. Especially affected are those who are members of Cuba’s independent civil society and political prisoners. Due to this and before the dynastic succession planned to take place on April 19, 2018, we call on the international community to:
- Not recognize the current electoral process in Cuba as legitimate and neither recognize the new delegates to the National Assembly, the new Council of State, nor the new President since they were not elected by Cuban citizens.
- Support the Cuban people and their rights to change the system through a binding plebiscite vote in order to carry out elections that are free, just, and pluralistic.
We will be presenting these requests formally before the United Nations, the Organization of American States, the European Union, and the democratic governments in this hemisphere.
All Cubans both on the island and in other countries are invited to demonstrate their rejection of the Cuban authorities’ sham elections, the system of government, and the dynastic succession:
- On March 11th, nullify your vote by writing “Cuba Decide” on your ballot or any other words or phrase like «PLEBISCITO». Or, do not show up to vote.
- Tell all your friends and neighbors about this call to action to support the realization of a binding plebiscite vote in conditions that guarantee the free participation and expression of all citizens.
For all Cubans who live outside of the island as well as all those who wish to help, we invite them to:
- Send formal requests to your elected representatives (Instructions Below) calling on your government to not recognize the electoral process in Cuba or the successor designated by the Castro regime and to support the demand by Cuba’s citizens for a binding plebiscite vote. A letter you can download and send to your representative in the U.S. or any other country in the region or the world can be found on our website: CubaDecide.org.
We invite you all to send a letter. Change is in our own hands!

CALL your member of Congress or Senator:
On April 19, 2018, Raúl Castro will step down from the presidency of both the Council of State and the Council of Ministers, while retaining leadership of the Communist Party. The municipal councils, recently elected amidst charges of regime interference, are scheduled to nominate candidates for the National Assembly of People’s Power on March 11, 2018, who will then elect the country’s next president. A dynastic succession is set to occur. The constitution and the Cuban Electoral System are designed to prevent the effective participation and free expression of the sovereign will of the citizens.
Raúl Castro’s transfer of power is an opportunity for the Cuban people to return to democratic constitutional rule.
In view of the this, I ask the United States Government to:
- not recognize the new delegates of the National Assembly, the new Council of State nor its President as legitimate or as one that represents the sovereign will of the citizens of Cuba; and
- support the Cuban people in their right to change the system in a Binding Plebiscite in order to carry out free, fair and multiparty Elections.
