More OAS and Posada Stuff

Juan over at Paxety Pages has a story and opinion on the OAS meeting in Ft. Lauderdale.

Henry Gomez has published a letter he wrote to the Miami Herald's Jim DeFede, who is currently in Cuba asking people about Luis Posada Carriles. Here's what they told DeFede.

Make sure you check out Henry's website El Tren Blindado. It is full of good stuff, featuring the story on the armored train of Santa Clara.

Finally, here's a translation of a letter from Cuban dissidents Félix Bonne Carcassés, Rene Gómez Manzano, and Martha Beatriz Roque which was delivered to Jose Miguel Insulza, Secretary General of the OAS, before the start of the general assembly:

Havana, 2nd of June 2005.

Mr. Jose Miguel Insulza, Secretary General of the Organization of American States

Your Excellency:

Allow us to greet the meeting that will be carried out in Florida, and congratulations for your designation in such a high position. We are honored to be able to refer to our dear homeland through these means.

This past 20th of May, some of us who aspire to take Cuba towards democracy met in Havana for the Assembly To Promote Civil Society. This unprecedented event needs international solidarity so that it does not become just an isolated event. Because of this, we would like to solicit that the member countries of this prestigious organization pronounce themselves in favor of democracy in Cuba and show their endorsement with those of us, who through this coalition, have fought peacefully for the freedom of our country. We must construct the conditions so that our nation can be united with those countries that form the O.A.S. It is a difficult task that needs much support.

The Executive Secretariate of the Assembly To Promote Civil Society in Cuba thanks in advance those who decide to voice our solicitation at such an outstanding meeting.

Felix Antonio Bonne Carcassés, René de Jesus Go'mez Manzano and Martha Beatriz Roque Cabello
