By Roberto de Jesús Guerra Pérez

Havana, Cuba- May21-/CIHPRESS/- As part of its Solidarity Project, University Students without Borders (Universitarios sin Fronteras [USF]) stands in solidarity with Myanmar opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi, who was imprisoned 6 years ago by a pro-Marxist military junta.


In an open letter, the dissident youth organization the Cuban Youth for Democracy Movement (Movimiento Cubano de Jóvenes por la Democracia [MCJD]) demanded the pro-democracy activist’s release. MCJD created the University Students without Borders project to promote reforms on the Island’s university campuses.


IThe open letter states:


“The world must continue uniting its efforts to reject tyrannical regimes who are acting in during this new era for civilization, outside of the context of the protocols and agreements that exclude those forces that act against the majority desires of peoples,” in a call to the international community to condemn the Myanmar regime for deciding to open new proceedings against the country’s Nobel Peace Prize laureate.


The document also address the Cuban government’s position on the matter: We call for transparency and responsibility on the issue from the Cuban government, as well as a statement of condemnation against the injustice committed against the people of Myanmar and its leader, Aung San Suu Kyi.”


Similarly, the letter adds that, “Justice is precisely that which is unaccompanied by conditions or doctrines that justify it. Only immeasurable love, and respect for human beings determine acceptance with the passage of time into history.”


The Solidarity Project seeks to call attention to and build bridges of support against the arbitrary and repressive actions of totalitarian regimes against the democracies of the world. In its positions, the Project has addressed the case of the French-Colombian woman kidnapped by the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia guerillas and freed last year Ingrid Betancourt, commemorated the victims of Tiananmen Square in 1989 and the Kangamba massacre that occurred during the war in Africa between UNITA, Cubans and Angolans.
