LAS VILLAS POLITICAL PRISONERS SEND MESSAGE TO WORLD BEYOND By Marvin Hernández Monzón, Cuba Free Press.
CIENFUEGOS - Political prisoners in the Ariza jail, Cienfuegos province, sent through friends to this reporter their end-of-year message. The document states:
END OF THE YEAR MESSAGE FROM THE POLITICAL PRISONERS TO THE PEOPLE OF CUBA.
Few days remain until the end of 1998. We Cubans can't help but look back on the path we have traveled but our hopes look forward to a better future.
Behind us we leave our goals which have not weakened, helping us look toward the future with optimism.
Those who remain in prison, suffering political or religious persecution, those who find their personal dreams truncated, whether extended or personal, those who find themselves isolated, those who are intolerant, those who feed off the social and economic ills of the country, those who love in spite of all adversity, to all of them we wish an ever increasing growth of internal peace and the fruit of fraternity, which will overpower all divisions among men.
Let 1999 be a year in which each and every Cuban is able to express his views without trampling on those of others, a year in which fraternal relationships will overcome as a demonstration of the goodwill for the betterment of the motherland.
Let us sign on to our national history as the only means of not harboring our disappointments and social, political, or economic failures. Let us look into each other's eyes and move away from all creeds so as to build a path of peace, where every Cuban will reflect on being a part of building Cuba's destiny, with individual responsibility, and especially knowing full well that the Motherland Belongs to All.
Signed: Benito Fojaco Iser, Augusto César San Martín Albístur, Luis Mariano Ramos Morales, Vladimiro Roca Antúnez, Juan Carlos Vázquez García, Israel Jesús García Hidalgo-Gato, Pedro Genaro Barrera Rodríguez. Political Prisoners, Ariza jail, Las Villas, Cienfuegos, December 28, 1998.
