DDC, 27 September 2015 — Groups of Cuban activists will travel to New
York on Saturday for a protest in front of the United Nations on Monday,
when Raul Castro will deliver a speech to the General Assembly.
“The world welcomes a dictator of 57 years who has destroyed the Cuban
nation, who has brutally divided it, who has encouraged the guerrillas,
who has been involved in drug trafficking, terrorism (…) and who, on the
other hand, does not want to hear the voice the people of Cuba,”
criticized the exiled Ramon Saul Sanchez, who is leading the action in
which Rosa María Payá, daughter of the deceased regime opponent Oswaldo
Paya, will also participate, reported Channel NTN24 .
According to the report, the activists will denounce human rights
violations in Cuba, the abuses of dissidents, and the division of the
Cuban family, among other things.
“We will try to do something in the river (East River), behind the
United Nations, and also on land. We propose – we do not know if we can
do it because of the logistics, due to security – to deploy a floating
cemetery (in memory) of the ten children who were murdered on the 13 de
Marzo tugboat” incident in July 1994, Sanchez, leader of the Democracy
Movement, told NTN24.
The first group of activists departed Saturday from Miami. According to
the exile Felipe Rojas, another group will travel on Sunday to New York
via bus, “to be present on Monday at 11:00 am at the United Nations.”
That day US President Barack Obama will also speak to the UN General
