Latin Builders Association President on Odebrecht

Via Capitol Hill Cubans:

LBA President on Odebrecht's Partnership With Castro

Kudos to Bernie Navarro and the Latin Builders Association.

By Bernie Navarro, President of the Latin Builders Association:

Dear Friends:

As President of the Latin Builders Association I was invited to participate in [Odebrecht's April 1st presentation of its Airport City proposal]. I can assure you that the LBA will not help Odebrecht in their continuous pursuit of Airport City.

Let me be crystal clear, Gilberto Neves, the President of Odebrecht, is a community leader and a friend -- he is a class act. His actions and respect for this community are not the same as those of his corporate parent.

We must be steadfast in our resolve for our brothers in Cuba. We can’t allow Odebrecht to traffic with our suffering. Our position is not negotiable. Or you do business here or you can do business in Communist Cuba? It is a choice. It can’t be both ways.

Now more than ever our brothers within the Island need our solidarity. What is going on all over the world with the travels of opposition leaders is unprecedented. In the heart of my hearts, I believe for the first time that a real change is coming to our imprisoned Country. We may be seeing the beginning of the “Cuban Spring.”

To add insult to injury, Odebrecht has decided to do this [presentation] on the same date and time that Yoani Sanchez addresses the exile community in Miami at the Freedom Tower. Their insensitivity to our community could not be greater.

I call upon all of you to join me in solidarity for our people.
