Cuban dissident launches new forum for change

Cuban dissident launches new forum for change
IANS Tuesday 5th January, 2010

Havana, Jan 5 (IANS/EFE) Cuba's prominent opposition leader Oswaldo Paya
has asked his countrymen to participate in a forum that will seek
changes in the communist-ruled country.

Paya, recipient of the European Parliament's Sakharov Prize, announced
the creation of the Foro Cubano (Cuban Forum) to work for change, a
group that will be open to all Cubans, both inside and outside the
country, starting on Tuesday.

'It's not a new project, it's a new step to empower and achieve through
solidarity the objectives of all the peaceful, collective and personal
projects and initiatives that represent advances in the rights of
citizens and reconciliation among Cubans,' Paya said in his statement.

He also noted that the Forum will seek options for an improvement in the
quality of life, 'spiritual and humane promotion' and the preservation
of the environment in the country.

Paya said that among the basic elements that the Forum identifies itself
with are love for country, transparency, participation and freedom.

'We've come to the year 2010. This is the time of the people; it's the
time of change because we Cubans have already decided and yearned for
change in our minds and hearts and we know what the changes are that we
want and we have the strength of will to realise them,' the statement added.
