The Christian Life Movement, led by Oswaldo Paya Sardinas, has announced the publication of the first edition of “Liberacion,” an independent Christian magazine that will now be the official voice of the movement.
The first edition, published electronically, explains that the new magazine takes up the mantle left by a previous Catholic publication, “Pueblo de Dios,” which “was created 20 years ago at the Parish of the Hill, as an initiative of a group of lay Christians who wanted to proclaim liberty and the rights of all Cubans and of all human beings, who ‘have the right to have rights because they are children of God’.”
“Pueblo de Dios” was the “first free publication to proclaim the great and good news of the liberation of Cubans, amidst the oppression that our people suffer.”
“That humble but radical publication,” the new magazine Liberation noted, “was the voice of the Christian Club of Cuban Thought, a group that met to think and debate and was predecessor to the Christian Liberation Movement.”
