Pedazos de la Isla

"Pieces of the Island"-An English Translation

Dissident Front convokes a national “pots and pans” protest for International Human Rights Day

The Orlando Zapata Tamayo National Civic Resistance and Civil Disobedience Front, a coalition which groups numerous opposition organizations throughout the island, has convoked all Cubans- activists and everyday citizens alike- to participate in a “national pots and pan protest” to mark International Human Rights Day, declared Jorge Luis Garcia Perez ‘Antunez’, leader of the Front.

In recent declarations made by Antunez to “Radio Republica”, the dissident detailed the importance of unity among diverse opposition groups on the island to peacefully protest this upcoming Monday against the Cuban regime.

Meanwhile, the Cuban dictatorship has already unleashed a strong and repressive operation throughout the entire island against any dissident who has tried to manifest themselves in favor of human rights this weekend, especially against the Ladies in White.

Despite these display of intolerance and violence, the convocation made by the OZT Front and other Cubans who fight for freedom still remains.

Listen to the declarations of Antunez below (in Spanish):
