A call for solidarity

Dissident economist Oscar Espinosa Chepe has distributed this call (pdf) for fasting and Bible readings next month as a way of “demanding that human rights, which are inalienable for all human beings, be respected for the people of Cuba.” It is signed by Oscar Elias Biscet, Julio Cesar Galvez, Regis Iglesias, and Angel Moya, and includes names but not signatures of Normando Hernandez and Ricardo Gonzalez. All are among the 75 opposition and human rights activists arrested and sentenced in the spring of 2003, and all are in the Combinado del Este prison now. Espinosa Chepe is also among the group of 75 but was released provisionally in November 2004 for health reasons.
