In a cordial encounter sustained in the capital of the nation, dissident leader Rosa Maria Paya signed an agreement with the General Coordinator of the Eastern Democratic Alliance (ADO), Rolando Rodriguez Lobaina, to work together in the promotion of the project, “The Path of the People.”
The idea of working in unity ratifies the intention of various civil organizations in the island to work in favor of democracy and for changes for the people.
“It’s the perfect moment to take important steps that will help the Cuban people to chose new instruments to demand the rights they deserve,” affirmed Lobaina.
The Eastern activist also added in his discourse: “The Path of the People should be taken to everyone, and all other organizations in and out of Cuba that stand up against totalitarianism should support this initiative, an initiative open to everyone.”
Finally, ADO’s coordinator concluded by saying: “The first step which we Cubans should take is to dismantle the law system which restrains the freedoms of all citizens. Taking this as a starting point, we can then sit to debate about the destiny of the nation, with respect and tolerance”.
