Lech Walesa, explaining that the âculture of fearâ is seeking to stifle the Cuban people to prevent them from claiming their rights..- The coordinator of the Christian Liberation Movement, Oswaldo Paya, sent a letter to former Polish president
âYou know well how the culture of fear attempts to drown people so they do not demand their rights,â Paya wrote. âYou all broke that barrier. Our people suffer from a totalitarian regime but they have also been buried in a cloud of lies that many in the world still believe.â
Paya sent his letter to mark the upcoming meeting between Walesa and Cuban dissidents Raul Rivero, Blanca Reyes and Carlos Alberto Paya. âWe will always be grateful to you and the Polish people for inspiring us by your example,â he continued.
Cubans want reform, and that means ârights for all, full freedom and national reconciliation,â Paya asserted. âWe fight peacefully for these changes, and because of their struggle for these changes, many of our Cuban brethren are still in prison in inhumane conditions.
âThe imprisonment of these peaceful Cubans is a sign of the imprisonment experienced by the entire Cuban nation. Consequently, the changes in Cuba will only be true and just if all political prisoners are released,â Paya concluded.
