More than 80 international personalities have expressed their solidarity with the Cuban people “in their struggle for freedom and democracy” and supported their right to demonstrate peacefully on November 15, in accordance with the call made by different sectors of civil society.

In a letter headed by Nobel Prize winner Mario Vargas Llosa, former presidents, politicians, representatives of the cultural world and journalists, demand for Cubans to be able to choose their future, since “their demands are legitimate and necessary for the construction of the rule of law on the island.”

The signatories are protected “by international law, the Inter-American Democratic Charter and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.”

In addition, they accompany “the request for the release of political prisoners and prisoners of conscience, especially those arrested for peacefully demonstrating on July 11”.

“For decades, already more than 60 years, the people of Cuba have suffered the gigantic oppression of the longest-lived dictatorship in the history of Latin America, being deprived of the most elementary human rights,” the letter states.

The letter stresses that “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 inside the island.”

“But the people of Cuba raised a cry for FREEDOM and DEMOCRACY last 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 are asking, as José Martí did long ago, for a Republic with all and for the good of all.”

The Civic March of November 15 is a continuation of the protests that broke out in many Cuban cities to demand a democratic change, which were harshly repressed by the dictatorship of Miguel Díaz-Canel.
