The Cuban Resistance Needs You

I’m co-hosting a TV benefit on Sunday, March 13 for the Cuban Resistance: the brave men and women who are on the front lines of the nonviolent struggle for freedom in Cuba. It will air at 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time on Miami’s Channel 41. It will also stream on http://www.americateve.com. Confirm you’ll be watching by sending in your RSVP to this Facebook event:Sintonice “Todos Somos Resistencia” – Watch “We All Are the Resistance.”

You will be able to help them by calling 1-855-YO-APOYO (1-855-962-7696) and making a donation. No matter how modest it may seem, it will mean the world to the members of the freedom movement. Please watch with your family. Give what you can.

Growing up, Cuba was always the main topic of conversation in my household and at family gatherings. I’m sure it’s been much the same for you and for so many others since 1959, across the generations.

As much as I loved hearing my parents’ and grandparents’ stories, they always left me uneasy. Since Cuba wasn’t free, I wondered, what were we going to do about it?

This is the answer in which I believe: Join the Resistance. Defeat Communism. Struggle together with Cubans on the Island to rescue our families, hometowns, and ancestral dwelling places from totalitarianism. Defend the crown of Our Lady of Charity, Queen of Cuba, against the faithless usurpers, for the greater glory of God.

Whether in Cuba or abroad, when we defend the Cuban people against tyranny, we are the Resistance. Right alongside the Ladies in White as they worship God at Holy Mass and march down the streets of Havana, Camagüey, Banes, and other cities to defend their loved ones and demand their freedom. With Dr. Oscar Elias Biscet, who just spent his first night at home after years of unjust imprisonment. With the bloggers and Twitter users reaching out from their isolation. With the National Civic Resistance and Civil Disobedience Front as they organized demonstrations across the country in memory of Orlando Zapata Tamayo, a prisoner of conscience murdered by the Communists when he was most vulnerable. With the unknown number held in bondage by the totalitarians for living peacefully as free men who want a free country.

We all are the Resistance. Todos Somos Resistencia.

Please watch “Todos Somos Resistencia” this Sunday night. Pay special attention to the images of Sara Martha Fonseca in Havana; Jorge Luis Garcia Perez, usually known as “Antunez” in Placetas; Nestor Rodriguez Lobaina in Baracoa. Your contribution will aid people like them. Together, thanks to their struggle and ours, we will one day be able to embrace and break bread as a single Cuban family in a free Cuba.

Here are some clips of the show

  1. This has all the trappings of an RCC telethon. Too many RCC references in the announcement. We already know all the “good” the RCC is doing for Cuba. Will this pay for some more wine and cheese?
    Will there be open books? Or will someone make big bucks off the cause?
    Forgive me, but something smells very fishy.

  2. Hi pototo.

    “Todos Somos Resistencia” was produced by the Asamblea de la Resistencia Cubana [Assembly of the Cuban Resistance], a coalition of over 50 pro-democracy groups in Cuba and abroad who support the “Yo No Coopero con la Dictadura” [I Do Not Cooperate with the Dictatorship] Campaign. The funds we contribute to the Todos Somos Resistencia effort will help groups like the National Civic Resistance and Civil Disobedience Front, one of whose best known members is Jorge Luis Garcia Perez, usually known as “Antunez.”

    The announcement Alberto kindly reproduced above is an appeal from my personal blog. It explains my reasons for supporting this effort. I am Catholic, and the Faith is my main inspiration for working to support the Resistance on the Island and for contributing to the struggle for freedom in Cuba.

  3. Aramis, thank you for your response. Frankly I was fuming! As you may know, a group of exiles in Los Angeles are hosting members of the Asamblea with special guest Ariel Sigler Amaya in a couple of fundraising events for the cause this weekend. As one of the organizers, I can guarantee that NONE of us are making any money off these events and none of the funds raised are going to line anyone´s pockets.
