Mauricio Macri, Javier Milei, José Luis Espert, Patricia Bullrich and Ricardo López Murphy, among other political leaders, joined together to express their adherence to the “Letter of support to the Cuban people” published by the Freedom Foundation, through its international chapter, the International Foundation for Freedom (FIL) chaired by Mario Vargas Llosa.

The text was issued days after the civic protest called by Cuban activists, which is scheduled for November 15 in various cities on the island and around the world. The objective of the demonstration is to demand that the rights of Cubans be respected, the release of political prisoners and the solution of their problems through democratic and peaceful means.

In this regard, the letter published by Fundación Libertad states: “For decades, and more than 60 years, the people of Cuba have suffered the gigantic oppression of the longest-lived dictatorship in the history of Latin America, thus being deprived of the most elementary human rights. Since 1952, Cubans have not participated in free elections and several generations have been persecuted for the exercise of journalism and freedom of expression, as well as all kinds of human rights activists on the island ”.

In this sense, he explains: “The people of Cuba raised a cry for freedom and democracy on July 11, showing the international community that Cubans are standing up in the struggle for the conquest of their rights and the construction of a democracy. . It is the Cuban people who ask, as José Martí did long ago, for a Republic with all and for the good of all ”.

“We express our solidarity with the Cuban people in their struggle for freedom and democracy. Cubans have the right to choose their future, their demands are legitimate and necessary for the construction of the rule of law on the island. We support and support the call for a peaceful demonstration on November 15, called by different sectors of civil society. We accompany the request for the release of political prisoners and prisoners of conscience, especially those arrested for peacefully demonstrating on July 11, “the letter concludes.

In addition to the aforementioned political leaders, the text has the signature of the Nobel Prize in Literature, the Peruvian Mario Vargas Llosa; the former presidents of Uruguay, Luis Alberto Lacalle; from Ecuador, Lenin Moreno; from Mexico, Ernesto Zedillo; from Bolivia, Jorge Quiroga; and from El Salvador, Alfredo Cristiani. The president of the Popular Party of Spain, Pablo Casado, and the president of the Community of Madrid, Isabel Diaz Ayuso.

Here is the full letter:

For decades, and for more than 60 years, the people of Cuba have suffered the gigantic oppression of the longest-lived dictatorship in the history of Latin America, thus being deprived of the most elementary human rights. Since 1952, Cubans have not participated in free elections and several generations have been persecuted for the exercise of journalism and freedom of expression, as have all kinds of human rights activists on the island.

But the people of Cuba raised a cry of FREEDOM and DEMOCRACY on July 11, showing the international community that Cubans are standing up in the fight for the conquest of their rights and the construction of a democracy. It is the Cuban people who ask, as José Martí did long ago, for a Republic with all and for the good of all.

That is why, we and all those who defend freedom and democracy in our region and the world, protected by international law, the Inter-American Democratic Charter and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights:

We express our solidarity with the Cuban people in their struggle for freedom and democracy. Cubans have the right to choose their future, their demands are legitimate and necessary for the construction of the rule of law on the island.

We support and support the call for a peaceful demonstration on November 15, called by different sectors of civil society.

We accompany the request for the release of political prisoners and prisoners of conscience, especially those arrested for peaceful demonstrations on July 11.
