.- Various organizations of Cuban exiles announced the launching of a campaign called "No Cooperation with the Dictatorship" to support the actions of the civil resistance in Cuba, to encourage Cubans not to participate in the suppression of the political opposition and to foster activity in favor of democratic change.

According to El Nuevo Herald, the campaign is being promoted by the organizations Plantados, MAR for Cuba, and the Cuban Democratic Directory.

"We are responding to a call made by political prisoners and representatives of the dissidence on the island, considering the growing segment of the population that rejects cooperation with the regime," said Angel de Fana, director of Plantados.

The campaign consists of the distribution in Cuba of posters and bumper stickers with different slogans, such as "I Will Not Follow," "I Will Not Attend," "I Will Not Cooperate."

Javier de Cespedes, president of the Cuban Democratic Director, said it was crucial that "this campaign has already begun inside Cuba" and that it spread to other parts of the country, "because people are no longer afraid." "The atmosphere that one feels in Cuba is that of a dying regime," said Sylvia Iriondo, president of MAR for Cuba.

The launching of the campaign has taken place amidst warnings from dissidents in Cuba of an increase in government repression on the eve of the Fourteenth Summit of Non-Aligned Countries, which will be held in Havana September 11th-16th.
