Exiles Join “Twelve Days of World Solidarity for Cuba: Toward the Republic” Campaign to Support Pedro Luis Boitel Activism Memorial in Cuba
By Cuban Democratic Directorate

Miami. May 7, 2008. Cuban Democratic Directorate. The Cuban exile community, in solidarity with the Island’s civic resistance movement, is rallying support for “Twelve Days of World Solidarity for Cuba: Toward the Republic.” The event will take place from May 13 – 25 and will support the annual Pedro Luis Boitel Activism Memorial held annually by opposition activists in Cuba.

 

From Villa Clara province in Cuba, the Pedro Luis Boitel Political Prisoners Movement called on the Cuban people and opposition organizations across the country to join the Activism Memorial that marks the birth and death of Cuban student martyr Pedro Luis Boitel. Among the Cuban exile community and around the world, the “Twelve Days of World Solidarity for Cuba: Toward the Republic” campaign will call for freedom in Cuba and for Cuba’s political prisoners, as well as support for the Non-Cooperation with the Dictatorship Campaign.

 

A partial agenda of the activities planned by the Cuban exile community in support of this initiative from activists on the Island is included below.
