Ros-Lehtinen Supports Declaration of Cuban Pro-Democracy Group Affirming Its Commitment to Work for Freedom and Democratic Change

“Antunez and his fellow supporters for freedom will do much to strengthen the growing opposition and move forward the cause of human rights and dignity for all Cubans.”

(WASHINGTON) – U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), Chairman of the Middle East and North Africa Subcommittee, made the following statement after speaking on the phone with pro-democracy advocate Jorge Luis Garcia Perez “Antunez,” stating her support for the “Declaration of Garrido” made by the National Front of Civic Resistance Orlando Zapata Tamayo, a pro-democracy organization in Cuba. Statement by Ros-Lehtinen:

“I’m proud to stand in solidarity with courageous pro-democracy leader Antunez as his organization reaffirms its commitment to working for freedom and democracy in Cuba. Through their stated strategies of political organization, peaceful demonstrations and efforts to help communities, Antunez and his fellow supporters for freedom will do much to strengthen the growing opposition movement in Cuba and continue to push forward the cause of human rights and dignity for all Cubans.

“Even as the brutal Castro regime steps up its repression of those who seek to exercise their fundamental freedoms, I’m encouraged by men and women like Antunez who are unflinching in their struggle for freedom. I urge my colleagues in Congress and responsible nations to join me in supporting this declaration and the hope for a better future that it represents for all the people of Cuba.”
