Vargas Llosa leads an initiative in support of the Cubans of 11J and those who will come out on # 15NCuba

Dozens of personalities from Europe and America have signed a LETTER OF SUPPORT TO THE CUBAN PEOPLE from the International Foundation for Freedom (FIL), chaired by the Nobel Prize in Literature Mr. Mario Vargas Llosa.

The letter, signed by more than 80 recognized figures expresses support for the Civic March for Change in Cuba on November 15, convened by the Archipelago and 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,” indicates the document signed in Madrid.

Archipelago has said that the objectives of the Civic March for Change in Cuba are: to demand the freedom of political prisoners, especially those of 11J, an end to violence and respect for the rights of all Cubans and to find a solution to problems through democratic and peaceful means.

The text recalls that “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 have all kinds of human rights activists on the island. But the Cuban people raised a cry of 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. “

The letter says that it is the Cuban people “who ask, as José Martí did long ago, for a Republic with all and for the good of all” and that for that reason “all of us 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,” states the letter signed by the following personalities:
