Through diplomatic action and political involvement the Free Cubans of Belgium aim to create a dialogue with the Belgian Government, the European Union, and international institutions to defend basic Human Rights and political rights in Cuba. We demand an immediate STOP to the Political and Development Cooperation Agreement with the Cuban dictatorship. The PDCA only helps to maintain the regime in power and does not contribute to improving the lives of ordinary cuban people.
Since 1959 the world has romanticized a totalitarian and terrorist regime. Our lecture series aims to educate the European public about the reality of the Cuban people. The distortion of our history has been intentionally one of the biggest treason made by the communist regime. In promoting a false image of Cuba the regime has been successful in accessing credits, financial support and the sympathy from democratic governments. Economic cooperation with the regime only benefits the communist elite in power while keeping the majority in extreme poverty and scarcity.
As victims of communism, we the Free Cubans of Belgium and of Europe must remind the European population of the dangers of communism, marxism and totalitarian ideologies. The Cuban people yearn for a change of system. We do not want to continue living under the oppression of the communist party. It is our duty to raise our voice and denounce the constant violations of our basic human rights happening on the island in front of the eyes of the international community. The complicity MUST STOP !
The richness of Cuban culture allows us to come together with to share our traditions, our arts, our music, and our literature. Culture is an important element in understanding our people and it can be a neutral ground to create dialogues between our community and others. Through our exhibitions program and events we go beyond simple politics to promote our democratic values. We want to contribute the universality of our culture.
With more than 15 years of experience in organizing relief efforts for the Cuban people, Mrs. Lia Randich is in charge of coordinating all humanitarian aid support to the island through a collaboration with the Archbishop of Havana and Santiago de Cuba, and in support of different religious congregations. Especially noteworthy is the shipment of medicines and sanitary material, scarce on the island.
Our distribution network does not encounter interference from the Communist Party of Cuba.
Through our different online and field campaigns we aim to raise awareness of the different violations of basic human rights constantly happening on the island. Our different campaigns range widely from the liberation of political prisoners, to police brutality, to protesting arbitrary laws that violates the freedom of speech of the Cuban people. We are constantly observing the situation on the island, as well as collaborating with different dissident groups inside and outside of Cuba.
Your support to our cause will make an impact on the work with do to defend the fundamental human rights of the Cuban people and our struggle to re-establish a democracy on the island. Help us make a change globally !
