A major European political party has approved a series of resolutions calling on Cuba to end violations of basic rights such as conscience and political expression.
The Christian Liberation Movement, a peaceful dissident group in Cuba, explained during its recent general assembly that the European People's Party has issued a strong call to the Cuban regime to respect freedom of expression and association.
The party also demanded the release of all political prisoners and prisoners of conscience in Cuba.
In addition, the oppression of peaceful protestors who seek democratic change in the country must come to an end, it said, and the Communist regime must respect the right of all Cubans to travel freely.
