A Petition for Cuban Dissidents
Barbara Dillon Hillas, an American blogger living in Poland, reports that Lech Walesa and several other prominent individuals have organized a petition drive on behalf of Cuba's imprisoned dissidents. Here is the text of the petition in English:
We are appealing to the Cuban government to free all political prisoners and prisoners of conscience in Cuba. Their continued imprisonment violates the fundamental humans rights. During her own enslavement, Poland experienced a great deal of solidarity from the free nations of the world. It is our moral duty to support the pro-freedom aspirations in Cuba.
This appeal, with the list of signatories attached, shall be handed over to an officer of the Cuban Embassy in Warsaw, with a request for it to be submitted to President Fidel Castro.
Please see Dillon Hillas's post for details on this effort.
