.- The Archdiocese of Havana’s magazine, Espacio Laical, has called on Raul Castro to unveil his political agenda and to allow Cubans to participate in the reforms he has begun since his election as president of Cuba.

The current situation “needs to be fixed. As such it is inescapable, indeed necessary—inasmuch as possible—to involve citizens more in this process of adjustment, change and transformation,” the magazine stated.

While the magazine acknowledged that change in Cuba will take time, “the current state of daily life” in the country makes change urgent.  For this reason, the publication called on President Castro to make known his political agenda for the country.

In order for the Cuban people to be involved and to be assured that it will indeed be carried out, Castro must make his plans known “in a sufficient manner,” the magazine stated.  It also reaffirmed the Church’s commitment to contribute to building up the country, with the hope that she will be given “the necessary room to carry out her difficult responsibility during this decisive moment in the history of our nation.”
