From an article on a November 7 “exile summit” where Senator Marco Rubio spoke by telephone with activists in Havana:
From Cuba the opposition member Berta Soler, who took the helm of the Damas de Blanco, commented to Rubio that “people in all the towns and cities of Cuba are ‘lifting the veil from their eyes’ because they have come to understand the need for freedom.”
Antunez, for his part, told Senator Rubio not to miss the fact that soon a revolution or large-scale civil uprising will present itself because the people will no longer tolerate tyranny and human rights abuse.
Finally [Rubio] said that the word should be spread in the United States, in every public forum, about what is happening in Cuba and he announced, “I will speak with all the U.S. media to make known what men and women are living through for seeking freedom.”
“We will involve even more all the funds that the United States government has at its disposal to continue promoting more strongly the programs to free Cuba from communism and, at the same time, we are going to investigate how they are being administered now.”
